There are actually several ways to ban players, the level 99s were banned via IP and blocked off homepage, so technically they still login with another IP but they won’t be able to really play the game other than seeing a “account suspended” message on the home screen. I have added a DB ban as well so they won’t be even able to login even if they switch IP addresses.
Majority of scripters are are usually permanently banned, even though there are couple exceptions made in the past for first-time offenders where the script usage usually didn’t yield too much advantage and the ban was lifted after few weeks. I don’t encourage anyone trying their luck.
So let me just check if I’ve gotten this straight. You have banned the scripters, but they are still able “login” to the game so it shows up in the guild list that they have played the game, but they have only been able to see a message about that they are banned? If so then it makes sense to me that all the level 99s have logged in since the ban. I hope I interpreted your post right Kingk and thanks for the clarification ^^
> Majority of scripters are are usually permanently banned
What do you mean under scripts? Hand-made addons, which play the game automatically instead of the players, like kgkg’s auto-fallen-hitting script?
Scripts can mean a shit load of different things. But I believe that it’s only fair of kingk to look at what kind of script the users has used and then decide the punishment. For example a person who uses an auto-collection script during christmas to get all the mbs might not deserve to be permanently banned for doing so, but if someone else uses a script that plays the whole game for them then they deserve a perma ban.
I mean the same though. Using autoclicker with a script which plays automatically should be perma-banned. But for example if theres a guy with a painful left hand (he just had surgery for example) and uses some easy stuff, it should be good with a warn. Well, we’ll see whats coming next.

Why did you delete second post? It was clean. You’re abusing your power here.
Edit: Circumventing, pfff. Joke. Ok, I’ll try again, all clean and on topic:
Why not reset or delete those two banned lv99 accounts. Their guild still benefits from having them and they’re taking up space in rankings.
I went to a NHL game many years ago. As we were walking out…these two guys were talking like crazy about the game. There was this kid with them…about ten or so. Now…in the old days…you could smoke in the arena. This kid reached down and picked up half a cig off the floor and stuck it in his mouth. We were out the front door before the dude noticed his kid was licking the damn thing and puffing like a mofo. His Dad kicked the shit out of him. Two things….1) Kicking the shit out of kids for screwing up is much more effective than taking away the internet for the weekend. 2) The kid should have got a free shot at his old man’s nuts for not paying more attention to what he was doing. Anyway…there’s a moral in there, somewhere.
I do not know about a moral but the story was worth the read.So what you are saying is that both are at fault, King for letting it happen and cheaters for doing it. so that makes it a wash and all is good……i do not think so.
Why does it not surprise me you’re not smart enough to get it?

I guess you prefer flowery language….like in romance novels? I’ll write something just for you, Insipid1!!!!

> Well, it would help if you were smart enough to write coherent thoughts instead of this stream-of-consciousness nonsense that you incessantly spew.

> There is not much to **know** about playing DW. Grind, grind, grind and then grind even more. Spend many hours a day during weekend events grinding 5k mists a day and you’ll get into top 100 very soon. No rocket science here.
Hey I know this is a real Slowpoke. Like a huge one… But please, tell that to your own guild mates… Man it’s so annoying having someone running into the chat room just to accuse you for being a liar. So yeah, please tell that to your guild mates….
Well, if someone is still looking for names to hate and shame, here is one – that’s me. Got suspended for using a helper program that automates some boring and repetitive tasks in the game. Maybe I should have cared more about making its behavior “human-like” :) Anyway, writing more and more sophisticated automation tools (from a simple program to automatically fight Nahazir with healing and using dusts when necessary to a program that could grind areas like Facton War or Invasion, buy mists and dusts when necessary, sell loot, trade crystals, interact with special encounters and do a shitload of other things) kept me entertained for a long time – much longer that a game as boring as DW could possibly do. Now it’s time to apply my programming skills elsewhere. Bye everyone and have a good time :)
