Funny how people get most angry with the allowed botting, and not the illegal botting. Sadly this game is full of people who would rather complain about changes rather than evolve with the changes.

(PWI) Player who are kill stealing

How do I report players for kill stealing?
"Kill stealing" is not illegal in our game. Remember that monsters do not actually belong to any player, and that the player/squad that does the most damage will gain the majority of the EXP as well as the loot that the mob drops.
The only time that a GM will intervene is if one player begins following another player from zone to zone, attacking the same mobs/harassing them in general for an extended period of time. At this point it would be considered player harassment.

I can't believe it took me like 1 hour to finish my blue divine quest in Lothranis to kill Cloudweaver as there are like 3-4 bots there and some of them are R9. I tried using coin drop lure but some of the bot ignore the drops and keep killing randomly, I've camped the spawn site and as soon as it spawn I rush to it only to find a sin knifethrow it first and kill it before I could even in range.
I ended up returning back to bank to get a genie with expel skill and yet still hard to control 2-3 bots in that are to stop killing my divine mobs b:cry.
Iirc, when someone is preventing a player from completing a quest, it can be consider as harassment, I wonder if this is one of those case b:surrender

Botting isn't really the problem... The playerworld is vast enough that it can support the playerbase. Problem now is that some players are taking multiclienting to a new level. I've seen areas with 2 pickers and 2 killers in team autoculti totally locking an area down. That's 4 clients, double of what is allowed. But I suspect that's just the tip of the iceberg.
If PWI were to limit connections to 2, maybe 3 per IP address per server, the amount of bots would sharply drop since the few gits who have an entire farm running would end up with a "too many logins" error on the bulk of them. It'd probably also curb a lot of shop kitties, thus cleaning up Archo West a bit.
But if you're hunting around for mobs... unless it is a miniboss, you can usually find another group of the same mob nearby, sometimes mixed with a different kind. Just hunt around a bit.

Lothranis as a server must be more popular then Morai then. Granted, popular botting mobs like the Lethal Araneid Sharpfangs spots are crowded as hell (prolly because that mob, for the level, has only two thirds of the usual hitpoints), but there are huge sections in Momaganon/Lothranis and Morai where there's barely anyone at all. I usually pick an out-of-the-way spot for my 2 main characters and have no problem letting them run for hours while I go to work or sleep.
Well, except for my BM whose weapon breaks after a while... bloody Anni of Souls at level 96... b:laugh
