Actually, some of these exploits get found out the more people know it and sometimes, the ones doing it the longest don't get banned. Seen it in other games and here in BDO. My fish-botting friend is still around cuz he did it long before it was popular enough to get Kakao's attention. Safety in secret is higher than safety is proliferation. Furthermore, the companies change their approach to hackers and exploiters (Like the OP) when they start to lose population. I remember in Aion people started getting banned for every little shirt ever: Spawn-killing? Ban. Range shot through walls? Ban. A player said you were botting? Ban and you had to offer proof otherwise. Said to be selling your account as a joke(This happened to me) Ban. A friend logged into your acc? Ban. Different Ip? Ban. ...Until the game started dying, and then, the banning ended.
