    Yah I hope FW doesnt become one of those games where bots constantly harass with PMs about their offers and spam 24/7 in the middle of highly populated areas. Really is annoying..

    well it was only a matter of time before people made accounts for spamming their sites "selling" gold and such -_- like any other online game in some old games i played theres like 4 bots on average in the major towns in every world/realm
    it is.. and i hope they do something about it, cause their in-game report system doesnt work.

    not surprised by this

    I was wondering when that **** would find its way here. Yaay... :|

    I guess they don't realize that you can "buy gold" from PWE directly for roughly the same price:

    As you all know...

    $10 = 1000 zen = 400 leaves

    100 leaves = 20 gold

    Thus...

    $11.59 = 1159 zen = 463.6 leaves

    463.6 leaves = 92.72 gold

    Okay, so you get 7.28 additional gold from the spammers, but only IF they don't just take your credit card number and run. Fail spammers need to go back to wow.

    I hope the gold spammers get dealt with. I don't want them to ruin this game for me like they've ruined other games that I've played.

    while i do approve of your point of view i must point out a few things
    1. these things are in every game it happens the companies can try to deal with them but that wont stop them from popping up everynow and then blocking them may be the best option
    2. naming and shaming in the forums is against the ToS
    3. relative to the naming and shaming in the forums you will get better results by sending in a ticket especially if you have a screenshot ^^

    There are the same bots all over Eyrda as well, with at least 3 different names. As everyone else says, let the ban hammer fly, these guys are super annoying.

    There is one spamming on Lionheart in world chat like every 5-15 secs which is annoying even though someone sent in a ticket about it.

    the following is how i dealt with them in previous games.
    this is all depending if the game records chat records or not.

    1. take ss
    2. upload to like photobucket or something.
    3. send ticket with link
    4. block them.
    5. move on with what i was doing. the end.

    Well, I think this qualifies as an exeption in the naming and shaming rule... you cannot shame a bot spamming normal chat, and I don't think anyone will disagree this is a bot...

    Anyway, do send a ticket as well.

    This is pretty much one of the better courses of action you can take. We actively ban gold spammers like this, and your reports are helpful in nailing them to the wall.

    Actually, they are cheaper, since PWEU charges us Europeans more than PWE charges the rest of you...

    But your penultimate sentence is what really counts anyway ;) Plus it's totally not worth getting banned if they catch you buying, plus it screws the very game you're playing, so...

    this OR, make a system where you can let 10~15 (active, as in moved within 1 minute and not on auto route) players hold an area wide vote to make said Player PKable and if the majority approves the player is flagged for PK and upon death you can only use World Chat, PM, Party, Guild NOT NORMAL.

    please consider this dark suggestion

    In Hero Online I've seen very nice feature. Simple quiz every 30 or 60 minutes, you had 2-3 minutes to give the answer, so you could safely leave battle zone, and then answer. Quiz was just simple addition/subtraction, like 2+7= ??. Bad answer = dc/temp. ban. Good answer = little lotto with rewards like potions, crafting supplies, fortification items. In FW it could be little portion of bound food/potions (the greatest chance), single star shards (bound), materials like elite drops (magic blood, ruby fossil, etc). Little image distortion should be protective enough

    There is something like that in the chinese version of Forsaken world. No rewards though and i cant see how it can possibly work with afklvling.

    BTW: There are goldsellers on Dyos too. They got banned several times but they are back in the game after a few minutes/hours with a new account. And their website is (obviously) a scam ,my antivirus is telling me that the website is infected.

    Just this morning ive seen like 3 different names spam world chat.

    Sure i can send in a ticket, but if im gonna send in a ticket every time i see a new name or a new spammer i wont get to do anything else. There are too many of em, and as soon as they get banned they make new accounts.

    It would be much easier, for us and for PWE, if they fixed their in-game reporting system.

    i played aion 4 months on official server...i never saw something like this there...bots made me in past to leave cabal online after 3 years...i hope here is not same thing :|

    This is exactly how I ended up on FW. I left another game that I had been playing for three years, leaving many, many friends, my guild and my high level/well equiped character. The bots and spammers had taken their toll on not just myself but a vast majority of the players, making the game a near ghost town of its former self. I tried to put up with the spamming, gold selling, the bots and hacks for as long as I could (almost 2 years of my three there), but I had to leave. I came here.

    The decision to leave was a hard and painfull one to make. So hard that I'm afraid to make friends and or join a guild here - and if the bots persist that was probably a good decision to make, since I'll be moving on yet again.

    It'll be just too hard to watch yet another good game fall into the hands of account thieves, scammers, bots, spammers and gold sellers/buyers.
