Rampant botting?

So I have noticed several players leveling impossibly fast (IE level 32 and then about 12-15 hours level level 41). I have a strong feeling that botting is what is causing this. So my question is if there are any plans to put in anti-bot systems like captcha's? If this is not done, I feel that all the potential that this game has will go down the drain and this will become a game for botters.

Maybe he doesn't use bot systems. He go to the dungeons 6 times a day. And EXP in dungeons are three times more than the EXP of monsters in World map. And you can go to the dungeons to try it. Thanks for your suggestions. Very Happy
If you have any questions, you can ask me on the forum. Thanks.
Have a good time.

well, i have to support mark, it's rather impossible to earn more xp than mark + it's even more impossible to gain 9 lvls in 12 hours, when mark did maximum 2 lvls in the same amount of time...

We really can't tell what happened, but 9 levels in such a short time frame should mean you need to look into the xp curve, or how they got it.

Hmm, 9 lvls in 12 hours? o.O
I don't know how they did it at lvl 31++
At low lvl, that's possible, but at high lvl.... *shrugs*

Even if it was just a test, I still believe there should be an anti-botting system in place. This is a time I also agree with Mark. I have seen many games in aeria destroyed by botting and then admins and gs having to fight the issues once they start arriving.

It's easier to build a system with security and fair play in mind than to try to implement and battle it after it becomes prevalent.
