    What about Katherine (for example) and a lot of bot users in server Heredur who used much months bot and they are still ingame. They were recorded in an0 video too, so why they arent banned? Or they are some kind of VIP????

    My dear RickTalrok,

    Do you really think that all of the banned players are fairly banned? You said that you can prove about people using bot, how do you plan doing that, by admitting that you have installed a malware into their computers? Good try my dear, unfornately not good enough. 6,000, that's a huge amount, so either you're bluffing about that amount or you have placed 1,500+ false bans, if not more. DO YOU REALIZE that those banned players are the one who made the game rich? 6,000 bot users, ONLY PREMIUM to buy is 60,000EUR per month, that's a huge sum, do you -REALLY- think that all those banned players would start a new account screwing their 2+ year old accounts? Are you really that mental to think that? Unfornately, all I can tell you right now that you have made a very big mistake by doing that and unless you unban them all and explain them that you clearly know who's using bot, you won't achieve nothing.

    Regards,

    then give that 500 euro to your friend, so they can build up a new char.
    Nonsense. Botters have to locked up forever.
    Good job Bigpoint, keep your hard work

    Why would we need to install a malware in order to be able to prove that someone cheats in our game? Strange idea indeed. The rest of your post about bot users being the players that made the game rich is completely wrong. I know the revenue numbers, you do not.

    I'm not going to unban cheats.

    No offence taken. But you can tell from some of the posts here from banned bot users that paid, that your suspicions are unfounded. I assure you that we are playing fair with how and who we ban.

    Hello,

    Indeed, you have updated your Terms of Agreement before doing the 'big bot ban' so you stay completely innocent and not to be able to get sued. That's something I admire, good one. Indeed, why not just to add an 'extra file' in the new drakensang update to check for specific running processes? Perhaps the idea is not strange at all, but what should I tell you when the only players I see in the servers are newcomers, all old players and etcetera are banned. I might not know who made the game rich, you do, but it's simple math if that 6,000 bot users number is right. :)

    Yes? Is that why there is an ongoing 'second check' and some players are going to be unbanned? Or did you lie to your administration team?

    I would like to ask you here, publicly, infront of everyone to provide real evidence for the bot users. Do that and you have my respect.

    Sincerely yours,

    AWellInformedPlayer

    awesome! Hope pvp will be better now.

    I got two thingies to say.
    first... Change back the andermantdrops to it's former glory! The measurements considering andermant drops being smaller the bigger the difference between your lvl and the area lvl, where introduced with the excuse of fighting bot abuse. Since bots can now be so easily banned, it's only fair that the dev team will undo these measurements.

    Second... some people keep saying bot users should only get a temp ban. This would however be very unfair, cause the moment the can start playing again, they still profit from the time they used bots. This because they already are marshals, have lots of andermant items, many many gems they would not have had without their bots. So.... I'm glad they got perma banned. Keep it up @RickTalrok !

    @daywaker2 I think it's very improper to try to bribe and corrupt the devs or anyone else in the DSO team. Just sayin'.

    I think it is unfair to give a ban forever 2-4 weeks would be enough ,not easier to prevent its use in the game?Say if a bot is enabled the game stopped,and not lose 6000 players in one fell swoop. Many people play more than 2 years and spent a lot of time and money in the game,or you Rick can use drastic measures ?easier to delete a crippled hand than to cure it:)?

    Hello,

    No, I am not banned, but few players which I happen to know are unfairly banned. :)

    Well, I think BP won't search 'random' players to ban, first of all, it's a lose of money, and 2nd, who should they choose?

    Unfair is a big word, let's just wait and see :)
