    Does that mean a certain streamer was involved and you first have to decide whether to give him a slight clap on the hands this time or just do another 72h temp-ban?

    There should be only one answer to this - aka a permanent solution.

    let's see how many fishing guru's/master's get banned today, BAN HYPE!
    imo cheating and exploits always insta-permaban, if possible hardwareban.

    would be disappointing if this is not the case though and some of the ones reported with video proof are still there.

    If you've been playing for 2 years, being a GURU fisher isn't that hard anymore, I am Guru 3 myself, from spending most nights and days afk fishing, only playing in the evening. Imagine spending the evenings on manual fishing as well, high level guru's are very well possible.

    That's probably because they deleted all complaints and bug reports about it yesterday.

    It's an exploit where people do something shady (I'm being deliberately vague) that allows them to use moves not intended to work on hotbar with hotbar. This is particularly a problem with Flow skills, because they tend to have little or no startup animation, no cooldown, and really strong effects. There are videos going around of people just spamming these skills rapid fire and causing unbelievable amounts of damage in RBF and high level PVE.

    First of all, good call!

    But seriously, what is there to determine? Players getting caught exploiting should be banned. And that means streamers too...

    I have 8ms ping, how do they plan to distinguish between players like me spamming enter/LMB and an actual bot? It's incredibly easy to make an undetectable MP bot.

    Bots will just adapt to measures taken against them. They will stop buying stuff across the board and just focus on the same item..

    @GM Rhotaaz I've been playing this game since the NA release. I just started using party elixirs. Yes, I'm dumb. Is it against the TOS to use keyboard macros?

    If they would just let you lock in your intent to purchase up to a certain amount at bid phase it would save a lot of these kinds of headaches.
