Macro users banned

2005-09-15 - Von Svarthol

Hello everyone.

Today, we moved against macro users on Tranquility. Macro use has been growing lately and we are well aware of the trend. We have been collecting data on those involved and biding our time, which has resulted in the macroers growing ever bolder and more visible. That makes our job much easier and for that I thank them.

Right now, we have banned over 100 accounts and we're nowhere nearly done yet. Although the players involved are welcome to contest the bans if they feel they have been unfairly targeted, I want to make one thing clear:

If we find that a player contesting his ban is only trying to bluff his way out of it, we will lengthen the ban. If it's your first offence, the ban will be doubled. If it's your second macroing conviction and you try to lie your way out of it, we will reward you with a permanent ban.

As you may have noticed, I don't much care for macroers. But that's not the point, this is:

EULA, section 7.a.(3):

(3) You may not use macros or other stored rapid keystrokes or other patterns of play that facilitate acquisition of items, currency, objects, character attributes, rank or status at an accelerated rate when compared with ordinary Game play. You may not rewrite or modify the user interface or otherwise manipulate data in any way to acquire items, currency, objects, character attributes or beneficial actions not actually acquired or achieved in the Game.

Those not banned today may rest assured that we will get them later.

All the best,

GM Arkanon
