"Boosting"

Post by Papa_Miracoli » Mon Oct 13, 2014 5:08 pm

Hello guys,

lately, a lot of people have been found "boosting" (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=boosting).

In our situation, this means:

people who are away from their keyboard, but not in /afk or /brb mode or pausing, causing the given player to gain money from their business and/or gaining score towards achieving regular player status.


We've been kicking but also banning. I want to stress this, some people don't even know why they get kicked or punished in general; this is a serious offense and we will start banning and resetting statistics as we see fit.

It's lame and not fair towards the players who play as they should to get the stats they want.


Please spread the word and make everyone aware of this.

Of course. But what about cases in which the player doesn't pause ? This is the basis of this topic.
I realize now that it will take time.
That the road ahead is long and shrouded in darkness.
It's not a road that will always take me where I wish to go.
And I doubt I'll live to see its end.
But I will travel down it nontheless.
For at my side walks hope

Indeed, I put a comma in my "definition" that changes the meaning, my mistake.

But as Joe says, some players have software (or they put a weight on their "run forward" key lol) that makes them run all the time, while being away from their PC anyway. Or they just stand in their business, nobody can harm them there. They're not pausing.

Is there a way to put a captcha test after like 1-2 hours in game without leaving? Lots of MMORPG uses it such as maplestory to prevent players from boosting, like if they fail to do the captcha within 1 min or get it wrong twice then they get kicked out

We're not going to bother players and ourselves by making that, MMORPG games have thousands of players, we have a few players a day.
