No Full Loot Drop = Bots Everywhere

Recommended Posts

I've been playing Archeage (which has no loot drop) and the result is 100's of Asian bot's farming mobs everywhere !

not only do they ruin the economy, you then also have to read the countless number of spam posts on where to buy "cheap gold"

 

 

 

Cant wait for this game !

Hah. There will likely be bots regardless of whether there is full loot or not.

 

It's just worth the risk, even if 5 out of 10 are killed and looted before they can secure their gathered resources.

Best reason for full loot.  I will camp-spawn and grief the crap out of a bot if I'm able to.  I will pop on a podcast I need catching up on and spend three hours chatting to people, listening to the podcast, and making sure the bots don't get diddly.

ArcheAge - game with 100500 holes in game protection. 

ArcheAge - is not faction game.

ArcheAge - game with dead high-level content.

Please, do not compare Crowfall with sh1t AA.

 

==================================

 

Only full loot, only hardcore ^_^

I'd totally do this with you.

These companies just buy up hundreds of accounts to farm with and pay so little attention to the idiosyncrasies of the titles they try to exploit.

 

Can you imagine the panicked, horror-stricken management at an Asian gold farming firm when they realize their bots and "buy gold" spammers can be killed, only after hours of futile attempts to reach harvesting nodes and just getting rekt by the Murder Flock?

They'll never farm gold again. Ever again.

If there is no PvE, there will be no bots :). Not to say there won't be RMT, but that's different.

 

False. The bulk of ESO's bots merely harvested resource nodes, which this game will have.

Still might be resources nodes.

Like I said, even if only a fraction of bots secure resources, it will still be worth it to them - because it's cheap and easy for them to do, rather than doing it legitimately.

 

It will make it easy for the rest of us to steal their resources, though.  :lol:

Alright, it will be a lot easier to police bots if no PvE :|

 

Plus. if full loot then it will be GM + player policing of bots. Hehehe

Another reason why I prefer Subs/P2P over F2P.  The argument about not getting population rings false, because if I'm enjoying a game I don't mind paying 15 bucks a month for it (I pay when I play TOR).  And paying for a sub ALSO makes me more invested in the health/quality of the game.

We know there will be resources, what we don't know is how will the resources be harvested. If the resource node is like an SB mine where to get resources from it you must PvP to capture it then a bot is not going to help you, especially if the players have to actively caravan the resources back to their base afterwards.

no tab targeting and only aimed stuff = no botting also

While I agree with your combat preference, remember... aimbot? You know, the automated aiming and targeting program older than Everquest? So yeah, no. Free aim doesn't eliminate automated tasks on a rail.

by not having "epic purplez" or an AH you vastly reduce the Demand satisfied by gold farmers and bots

 

and that's the key, isn't it?

 

if there's no Demand for such...because it can be had much more easily by crafting or purchasing legitamitly as opposed to using real money to buy in game currency so you can have your nickel plated warhammer of doom...then you remove the business incentive for the farming bots

 

add to it that if we, the Players can farm the farmers, there's a huge level of disincentive added...

 

do it right, and there's no reason for them to even try

 

and that's a good thing, imo...

Maybe...just maybe...there won't be any currency at all, and everything has to be bartered. Because of this, there is obviously no auction house.
 
Want that shiny new sword from the Blacksmith's forge? Well you're going to have to go out and collect something he wants in exchange, or perhaps perform some sort of service (escort him safely to a nearby town).
 
I don't think it will make bots disappear completely, but it will be a lot more difficult to sell [Copper Bar] than it is to sell [Epic Sword of Awesomeness].
