Better the devil you control than something you can not really fight against I believe :')

What troubles me is that I met people able to determine a botting behavior just from server logs even against the most recent bots. I don't believe that's the hardest thing to do :<

Follow the money! While most players in Asia use the time-point payment method, NCsoft might, by "legalizing botting", convince some of them to switch to a monthly subscription. That would provide them with a regular income of 29,700 Won aka 30 US dollars from each macro botter:

what annoys me is that on NCWest people have started bot again with 3rd party soft and haven't been banned for it till date.. I'm watching how that story is going to unfold as if really nothing gets done again it means the return of the zRanger age and seriously who wants to keep play the game with it's current over the top p2w store items & zero drops etc. like that.. :(

feel free to move my post to the "What is the future of NC West?" thread if I went to much off topic here

ps, to be very clear yes 3rd party script abuse is back on NCWest

When you go to the Fairy Settlement or the Seal of Shilen you can see tons of Adrenaline Summoners with their trademark computer-generated pseudo-Greek names.

For NCWest's business model to work, a constant (albeit moderate) inflation must be kept up to drive players into despair and motivate them to purchase L2Store items for real money, selling them for botted adena in-game. From NCsoft's point of view it doesn't matter whether that adena is procured by 3rd party bots or by players using in-game macros. I am sure that Nam Taek-rim would prefer it if all players macro-botted 24/7, simply to keep the forums clean of bot accusations and present a nice appearance. That's an important reason why the developers added the new menu called "Next Target Settings" (see Laby's patch note translation above) to make macro-botting safer.

But since not everybody can or wants to keep their computer running 24/7, and especially at NCWest there are many bad persons who are trying to force hard-working macro-botters into Clan Wars, there are simply not enough legit players willing to use that method to generate adena. So Neutron disabled Lee Eun-jo's anti-bot system. But of course once the anti-bot is turned off, not only Adrenaline bots for adena gathering, but also zRanger PvP bots can be used freely. I severely doubt whether Lee Eun-jo included a "Good Bot - Look The Other Way" button in his system. It's either no bots or all bots :D

As far as I know, Skelth is quite bot-free. There are few groups known as Asian farmers (one labelled Chinese, one labelled Korean) which may sell adena. I see little to no bots in Xp area, and I believe is this due to two things :

- Active GM presence. Tickets regarding bots are answered within the week, and you may often find them away for ever after that
- Item drop on death in PvE. Everyone wants to stun you under mobs, or train you even when you are live :D

Those two things make the game quite enjoyable. There are still people selling adena / items / characters, and the biggest "black market" regarding Skelth is that : Powerlevel (legit one from killing Raidbosses with high level chars stacked) and Adena.

As a consequence, prices ingame are quite low. Count 100 or 200 adena for a Charcoal. Less than one million adena for a karmian set. 300-400 adena for D Cry, Top C weapon are still between 6-9, and B grade armor sets can be found around 10m in total. You get low adenas from monsters overall (like 500a per golem in Ivory Tower Crater) but prices are overall low. I like it better this way :)

Also, Gatekeeper prices are bloody expensive (more than usual L2 version I believe) and it may also acts as a nice money sink. So far I believe Skelth is a nicely managed server, with a monthly subscription and no ingame shop at all

add in the fact NCWest is still way more expensive to play on then EU/RU if they don't deal with it fast there might be soon another exodus from NCWest to EU/RU servers just for the simple fact they actually do care enough to fight the bots to a degree unlike the current apathetic approach again on NCWest..
