Staff Response Since game Devs promote 'Bots' is there reason to manually fish?

    Pretty sure that's what you said my dude. I'll grant you some plausible deniability on the use of 'basically', even though the context heavily implies it.

    The functionality is still the same, so yes basically even though it isn't.

    the feature is call "Automatic fishing" and NOT AFK fishing. FINAL DOT

    au·to·mat·ic
    adjective
    (of a device or process) working by itself with little or no direct human control.

    bot
    noun
    COMPUTING
    an autonomous program on a network (especially the Internet) that can interact with computer systems or users, especially one designed to "respond" or "behave" like a player in an adventure game.

    Automatic fishing bot
    is another thing :)

    Double wrong ! Baby robots are called bots :)

    But a better term would be "Typically the term "bot" refers to a computer-controlled player that takes the role of a human player in their absence."

    Which doesn't change the fact that the similarities in terms of functionality are there and thus might be mistaken as a built in bot.

    You guys only run around the fact that a bot must be a 3rd party tool/software which obviously is the case but it's not about that but the functionality itself which in fact is almost the same. And you btw searched for the definition of a "computing" bot not a game bot. Which are 2 complete different things.

    Is the fact not to have enough gear to do Aakman a good enough reason for you ?

    There are similarities in function, but the functionality is not the same. A slight, but important distinction. When you say X is basically Y, you are implying the former.

    - Hitler's party was called the National Socialtist Party
    - Bernie Sanders is advocating for some socialist policies
    - kakodaimonos: Bernie Sanders is basically Hitler

    And now you are backpeddling saying that you actually meant the latter.

    - Oh I'm not saying he is the same as Hitler, I just mean he is similar in some ways.

    At this point I don't disagree, but that wasn't what I took issue with in the first place. And also, it's just kind of a pointless statement now.

    (Also please don't run around comparing Bernie Sanders to Hitler because of this. It's a really shitty take. Hitler wasn't really a socialist, and neither is Bernie. Not talking to you kakodaimonos, just a general disclaimer.)

    You still don't know that or did you read the sourcecode?
    From the outside you can only assume it's not. And you might be right but you also might be wrong.
    I'm not saying I know but I can totally understand how you can think that this is a bot.
    I really don't know Bernie Sanders since I'm not from NA but still. I'm pretty sure 99% of their doing or "functionality" were completely different.
    You are viewing on this on such an abstract level. Comparing a piece of simple software with 2 human identities is really something.

    It doesn't matter how the source code works. The functionality of a bot, in the context of a videogame like this, necessarily requires an outside program working onto the game and automating actions that normally requires human action from within the game itself. That is how a bot funcitons. It is not how afk fishing functions.


    Let me just make this clear - I don't think you are actually saying that you think Bernie is Hitler. It was an absurd example used to demonstrate the flaw in your logic.

    Hey there @Celthon!

    We, in no way, promote botting in our game. The AFK activities that are permitted in the game wouldn't provide the same rewards or benefits as some of the bots we've seen in the game and we do our best to ensure that those bots are stopped.

    AFK activities are put in the game to allow players to continue to progress while their time is taken up by other activities or responsibilities.

    I hope that this helps to clarify things for you ^^

    Take care!
