    Blacklisting them just isn't an option because there are just too many (my list is full, and has been for months).

    There are scattered content yells, probably 5% (I think I worked it out once). The rest are mercs and RMT.

    Despite the numbers, I don't think Asura is as active as it is made out to be. Your best bet is to find a good active linkshell and turn yell off, as hard as it may be, it seems to be the only option these days.
    Merc culture has ruined the game, and is accepted as the new normal, which is why nothing ever happens anymore.

    They are not RMT.

    Whether you like it or not, the top 20-30% of a servers population want and lust after REMA. They make one, then make another and on and on. The cost of a REMA is 300-400million+ and it's hard to make that kind of money without doing stuff like you see in those yells.

    Yes, anyone can setup a yell bot and anyone can have alts botting. Actual players do that, shocking I know.

    The problem is very simple. Nobody wants to make groups, they don't want the pressure of making a group. The people who have the gusto to make groups, now merc instead because why not?

    As such, most of the server just sits and wait for someone else to make a group and so none get made.

    Like I said, mercing has ruined the game, and this has been echoed from players from all kinds of different backgrounds (including former mercs and established players).
    Secondly, most mercs are using third party software to control 5 other characters.

    It's as simple as that.

    If rules weren't being broken, and mechanics manipulated, we wouldn't be having this conversation.

    The smaller servers have been a better choice for a while. More of the people on them are actual players, as a percentage. And there is less RMT. Most people being on one server is great for RMT becuase they don't have to maintain inventory on a bunch of servers, they can just do everything on one and with plenty of supply and cheap prices, they get tones of sales.

    I grinded dynamis and Gain EXP to get most of mine. You don't need mercs to make gil, or at least you didn't before they capped sparks....
