Tired of the stupid bots that PWE seems to want to do nothing about? Sick of seeing the clerics flying around the shops constantly all day? Have I got the solution for you. Use a staff from the new event and turn them into an animal. Suddenly they aren't running around anymore. Great fun for the family. Safe for all ages and non-toxic. Guaranteed to entertain everyone. b:pleasedb:victoryb:bye

    i suspect that something was done about them in the last patch as the site they upkeep is terribly out of date

    I used the wands on some yesterday, while playing David Bowie's Heroes. Because, that is what we are for doing this, just for a few weeks.

    I love that idea, I'm so gonna do it! b:laugh

    b:pleased To date, I've only used my spare (unneeded) staffs, only a couple of times (on a couple of dirty jerk Merch's known alt-characters) who deliberately park their alts (mounted characters) over other peoples neighboring competing k'shops (that are in the same area as their own shops) so that no one can compete against them while they're afk for the day, just so they can cheat people of better deals for items) b:chuckle

    I find that its quite an easy way to still get the better priced items from the (better/reasonable) shops to turn them into the "egg/sheep & fish", rather then still having to put up with their same'ol lil lame, dirty cheats manipulaitons Bs tactics, to force the rest of us to have to buy only from them & theirs...b:victory

    I only wish these staffs could be permanently available, because they do got some really good uses to remove the "manipulating cheats" blockade characters {b:chuckle}

    Hopefully it will make them go away and stop using up bandwidth.

    I saw one in HL trying to walk around to look at shops and failing miserably lol

    There's kind of two big senseless things in that statement.

    1. What the point in not doing it. It doesn't require a large amount of effort, and would easily be worth it for mild amusement factor alone. Therefore senselessness of an action has no bearing on whether it should be done regardless.

    2, Because they exist. They would not exist, if there wasn't some form of gain in existing. So it's obvious that preventing them would be worth it for those in the merchanting game not using, as if nothing else it removes any of the gains others are using to cut into sales.

    So really no matter how you look at it, there was no point in even typing the post I quoted, as it is defeated by its own logic, and asked and answered itself at the same time.

    Basically because they shouldn't be there to begin with.
    I know what they're used for, and I don't agree with them being there, so if I can mess with them in any way, however briefly, I would do it. If it wasn't against the TOS, I wouldn't complain, but as it is, it would satisfy my need for justice to get in their way if I can, even if it is futile to some degree.

    And I agree with Sylvae's 2 reason logic.

    Ah the idiocy of some people. So you are ok with these bots despite the fact that it is clearly in violation of the Terms of service because it benefits you in some way? What a joke...how can it possibly benefit you? people move their shops all the time and these bots are slowly disappearing. On top of which it IS against ToS. There is nothing to be gained by these bots that I can see that you can't just do yourself with a little walking around west arch. Childish you say? How is it childish? You are playing a video game for goodness sakes and you are worried about how childish it is to use something in game to turn someone into an animal? I think that is the real childish thing right there...that statement suggesting that this is childish. Turning bots that don't belong here in the first place is amusing...and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Clearly you must be upset by my suggestion or it somehow effects you in some way to come to this post QQing about how we shouldn't do it. For that....this thread is successful. b:victory

    Encouraging TOS violation is in and of itself a TOS violation, and all responses encouraging it (and the replies to them) has been removed. Please keep that in mind if you wish this thread to stay open.

    Eh, I'm neutral about them. There are several other games that support some sort of merchandise recording current prices and past prices.

    However, I'll probably use a few staffs on them... Just because it's funny and why not?
    If you bite some one, they get mad and smack you.
    But if you lick them, you still get the flavor.
    And they think you're weird.

    The breaking of the ToS should be enough, however, as long as they are around, and I have a staff of (animal), they will be turned into something cute. And since they are apparently clientless bots, I'm not ruining a players gameplay.
