Been seeing and turning in the same bots for over three weeks now, along with new bots that were added to the same areas to gather mats and or level. Also, ran into bots running in tandem side by side from node to node, stopping, turning, doing everything exactly the same. This suggests that either the bot operator is very careless, placing 2 in the same place or the bot scrip program is being sold and/or passed around.
How long until AGS will do anything about them?
In game support (game Mods) could easily see the bot behavior, do a temporary ban while game play logs are checked and a permanent ban can be placed on the account.
