Did the latest patch update temporarily break MP bots?

    Seems like I've been winning stuff in bid and stuff going into buy phase more often since the patch update

    I think population is suffering at high end (balance issues, stale end game etc). So yes, less MP bots/cheaters. Kakao hardly ever bans. There are people who have fish boted for 2 years without getting caught. Oh, the nerf to grana fishing also hit the cheaters hard.

    Someone here or on reddit mentioned that word on the bot forums is that the last patch broke the MP functions, until bot devs adapt it i guess.
    How true that is I have no idea.

    What are you talking about? Bots are as active as always. People will never stop to spread false info for God knows the reason

    It's very possible they patched something that made all mp bots go error. But could also have been an indirect result of patching something else.

    Not that it matters in the long run.The creators of various cheat programs probably fixed it already.

    The systems and routines they have at the moment to prevent unauthorized software, aren't god enough. They're always a few steps behind.

    I think PA needs to take over as publisher, if they want to get rid of cheat software more systemically tbh. As it stands right now, Kakao sends feedback and information to PA about hack&bots and PA tries to fix it with a patch hundred years later. Would be so much easier if the company doing development and patches, would also be in charge of monitoring unauthorized third part software usage.

    How ****ing shitty our the devs of this game when they finally fixed the bot problem by accidentally ****ing something up. Bot devs are more skilled developers and fixed it already. Man BDO, your devs are so terrible at their jobs. Worthless code monkeys that need constant supervision. Might as well hire flunkies on felon work release programs.

    Bots devs have only a tiny piece of software to maintain while BDO devs have a huge pice of software to maintain, just saying.

    On top of that, bot devs are probably a single person each time, not a whole corporation with a hierachy which involves decision making processes.

    But hey, flaming is cheap right.

    "Hey, should we do something against these hackers and botters?",
    "Idk man, arent they paying customers?",
    "Yeah, most of them bought some costumes, ghillie-suits, inventory slots and weight-upgrades",
    "Uh, we might need to get management in on this one",
    "WHY ARENT YOU MAGGOTS WORKING ON NEW COSTUMES?"


    Ya... corporations and their decision making processes.

    You're cute, but the point was that a bot is way more easy to code than an MMO.

    My point was that its exactly those "decision making processes" in large corporations that result in none (or minimal) action being taken against hackers/bots, because why waste resources and effort for something that doesn't generate profit, possibly reduces it even.

    Surely bots are way easier to code and adapt. But if any game had a dedicated core dev team, which plays their own game themselves and is intrested in its well-being and in their customers, AND is allowed to spend some resources as they seem necessary. They could "fix" most common hacks/bots and detect & ban most of them quite easily as well, especially when these hacks have already been publicly spread and even their source codes have been sent to them.

    You can easily see this in many other private servers, where hackers or botters are very rare or get banned almost immediately when reported. And thats with dev-teams which are far less experienced, didnt even write the servers they are running themselves, and sometimes even are working for free.



    Its not that Kakao/PA "couldnt" do much more against bots or hackers, its that they either dont want to, or arent "allowed" to, because it wouldnt generate any profit, whereas botters & hackers are paying customers.
