My brother just got banned when he logged in to do his dailies today accusing him of botting. He doesn’t do it and doesn’t even know what it is or how it works. Anet has been just banning anyone that farms stuff apparently, it’s illegal to spend over an hour in southsun cove apparently. He had just figured out how to get there 2 days ago and used 2 magic find boosts (2 hrs) to farm karka shells and even partnered up with people there for 2 hours until magic find boost wore off and was chatting occasionally as well, how does that define being a botter?
Funny thing was while he was in southsun cove another player was complaining that 4 or his friends all of whom were ranger apparently got banned. My brother was trying to get 30 karka shells so he could craft an armor that required it and he gets flagged for botting. If they don’t want people to farm for stuff why not change recipes to only need like 1 karka shell or 5 instead of 30 which takes a while to get because it’s a rare drop. Whatever system Anet is using to detect botters is simply flawed and they are hurting their own loyal customers.
