    FFXI DESPERATELY NEEDS BAN HAMMERS!

    Its almost impossible right now to get a decent CP party, every zone is FILLED to the brim with RMT botters selling JP! and with the CONSTANT yelling in towns of people advertising their websites for buying gil what the hell is anyone doing about it? I dont even want to try to master a job right now because it's a battle to compete against botters pulling mobs.

    we need a john wick GM!

    I don't think it's quite as bad on Phoenix, but we have some ridiculously blatant botting and RMT going on here too. Weekends are particularly bad - every Friday evening without fail, Ceizak and Yahse fill to the brim with BST bots fleehacking around farming sparks, poshacking around Adoulin inside walls converting them to gil. Then they magically disappear on Sunday evening. There are bots poshacking around Dynamis - Jeuno farming currency 24/7 - pretty sure they're all run by the same person, and every month or so there's a new one because they know they can get away with it. Completely fresh lv1 keyboard smash characters stand at the PJ guidestone bazaaring frankly absurd amounts of Dynamis currency at "low, low prices!", all presumably botted. Inner Ra'Kaznar constantly has people botting cards. I caught one of the notorious ones botting CP AFK for four days straight last week. Recently we've had the RMT yells coming back too.

    I've reported all of these to the STF more times than I can count. Pretty sure the reports are piped directly into /dev/null.

    All SE needs to do is have one GM do the rounds of each server every other day or so, including weekends. The botting is so incredibly blatant that it'll be obvious the instant a GM actually sees it happening.

    I'll sign off in the same way I sign every single report I make to the STF - PLEASE DO SOMETHING.

    That's one big reason why I refuse to move to Asura. I moved their briefly this month to force a character rename, and I never wanted to leave my Mog House / Mog Garden because of the non-stop stream of yelling. RMT, party requests, and right-wing hate speech... Hmm... I think I'll stay on Fenrir.

    I was originally from Fenrir. Just out of interest, what is the average number of people online these days?

    Oh, and the yell/merc/troll thing on Asura just gets worse and worse. I was one click away from cancelling my subscription and uninstalling FFXI last night.

    In my opinion we need:
    - A keyword blocker
    - An increased blacklist cap (extended beyond 100)
    - Active moderation (in other words remove the offender on the spot, or suspend their yell activity for x number of days).

    I would hope the vast majority of us are competent enough to construct our own judgments, perceptions and constructive proposals to add to this topic. The usual comments are depictions of ToS violations that do need to have vengeful action taken against the perpetrators. Additionally all players that want to see an end to unpunished prohibited behavior should be leaving feedback that includes ideas for solutions to vanquish the said prohibited acts.

    If you are saying there is an army of botters permanently camping places then don't contact a GM, contact the special task force who will investigate over a long period of time and take action if they think it's really an issue.

    https://support.na.square-enix.com/c...php?id=20&la=1

    A GM is now basically a customer service agent and the only time they ban people is over chat violations, they are not there to deal with botting or cheating. They are not police, most of their power has been taken away over the past few years because they are not able to make good decisions and often were banning people who should not of been banned (this is a business first and foremost).

    I have been reporting the same automated bot farmers for over a year now

    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/th...for-Escutcheon

    yet they are still there. Does it honestly take SE over a YEAR to find enough data to ban someone for automated bot farming? Isn't it more likely SE just cares more for the monthly fees than following the rules that they themselves have set.
