Question Concerning Macros


Recommended Posts

So I have a question for @Kibbelz, I recently got a Razer Naga gaming mouse and it comes with programs for setting up macros, such as  auto clicking for X amount of repeat times (Which would be very handy for opening bundles, especially since we don't have the QOL shift click option to auto open X amount of bundles this patch HINT HINT GIVE IT TO US) but after reading your post earlier about macros being illegal by 3rd party programs I feel hesitant to use it. Can you verify if this is considered illegal or not since it seems to be a standard option for most gaming keyboards/mice? I feel like with how gaming gear is changing perhaps the TOS needs to be updated to accommodate for these changes.

Hi everyone,

First and foremost, to anyone in this thread, please make sure you are submitt any bot or cheating observations to https://support.aiononline.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

After reading this thread I hopped on a call with my primary contact on the team which deals with these reports, and let me say that after our discussion it's clear that we are actively banning bot accounts. As you might expect, bot developers (just like cheat developers) are constantly looking for ways to circumvent our detection approaches. I learned a lot about how we detect botters / hackers, and while I cannot go into any detail on how our detection system works (to ensure we're not aiding our opponents here) I can say that it's clear there's a lot going on on that front.

As a side note, I haven't seen Multiboxing come up much. For those unaware, Multiboxing can appear as botting to casual observation, but actually is not. It's popular in MMOs (especially remakes/classics) and as long as the player is managing the multiple characters themselves and not using any sort of macro / automation software, this is permitted in Aion Classic. This often leverages the '/follow' command and can appear similar to botting from an outsider perspective.

Anyhow, I hope all this info is helpful. We'll keep doing all we can on our front and please, please, please continue submitting those reports. While they are not necessarily essential to get bans done, they do help us be far more efficient in finding bots!

Thanks

He still needs to be there and keep clicking the macro once it is done, while his mouse can do that while he is away.

@Rag-DN I doubt opening bundles will be seen as botting even if you do it with a mouse that clicks on itself. If you do use your self-clicking mouse to automate farming or other things it can be a bannable offense most likely.

I know about the macros in game, I make tutorial youtube vids about them lol, but the problem is our macros in this patch are very limited and can only repeat 10 times. It's not very effective and is extremely time consuming.
