In Linux it's even easier.

If you think that's all the information they use you underestimate them greatly! ;)

We ban all accounts owned by the same individual. How we identify that exact is a bit of some complicated science I won't go into. But it in-cooperates a number of factors. IP address is a part of that. But ultimately it's at the discretion of the individual GM to asses the best course of action, and they have this data available to them to make the call.

But we don't ban IP addresses outright per say. And we don't ban individual accounts only, unless the GM thinks its appropriate in the specific case.



Do you guys sit there all dressed up in wizard outfits and knight armour around a table of computers at a list of found botters, And say "WE CAST YOU OUT BE GONE FROM OUR LANDS FOUL BEAST"!!!


Confirming I've actually seen them doing this. Lol


Oh mah gawd! Can we haz video footage of that plz?!?!

You ALL of you are misunderstanding how botters work.

It DOESNT matter to get banned
It DOESNT matter to be IP banned or WHATEVER kind of ban

Just change IP and the computer "hardware signature" get a new account and in a week back to botting.


You DONT stop botters. Botters stop at their own will.



Now close useless thread ty

thumbs up if you like :))))

In the US and the UK, and probably a fair few other places, turning your modem off for a minute is enough to change your IP address.

IP bans are essentially worthless, because there aren't enough IP addresses to give everyone their own anymore. This is why we need IPv6: IP bans that stick! :p

If you are permanently banned from the game, under to EULA you aren't allowed to have another account. If they find out you do, they can ban it immediately without recourse for you. There was actually a case about this a few years back where a guy had been permabanned in...WoW, I think. He had a second account going, paid a yearlong subscription and the next day was banned because of this issue. He tried to sue saying that he'd been robbed by Blizzard since they banned him a day after he'd paid. He lost because of the EULA stipulations.

Leadership is something you learn. Maybe one day, you'll learn that.
