Bots And Mmorpgs...what The Hell?

Recommended Posts

I was having a discussion with a friend of mine. He uses macros and bots for some mmorpgs (which shall not be named atm :) ). I kinda felt that was stupid - people play MMORPGs for the following reasons:


- Make friends

- Kill stuff

- Completing quests together in an online world

- Exploring a particular world

- Earn virtual money


By using bots, people are defeating the purpose of playing an mmorpg in the first place. Where's the satisfaction gained from killing a mob and getting a uber item thanks to your own 1337 skillz? Why do people even play the mmorpg? <_<


lol I find these bot users really funny. Anyone who plays virtually any mmorpg should know how ironic all this is eh?

We'd like to think people play mmos for those reasons, but there are many who play them as a power trip. Getting to uber level x with the best gear, and then parading around showing off is what they're after. THe faster they can get there the better, and the methos doesn't matter. Many just buy fully decked out high levels charaters in game like EQ.

I can understand why some people would use bots. Leveling in a lot of MMOs can consist entirely of hacking endless mobs to death by repeatedly hitting your LMB.

If I'd had access to a bot when I played EQ I'd probably have used it.

I see WoW is getting very tough on cheaters though (if they can find them of course)

Never understood that myself. When I played Enemy Territory it was always fun for me and I liked it that I got better. Sometimes there were people using cheats. But what for? On a public server? I mean. You don't gain ANYTHING from it. And for me it spoils the fun to play such a game online.

I love ET. The only reason I no longer play it is that it doesn't play nice with my firewall [1]. And I don't get cheaters either. I was actually the opposite of a cheater; I used to "volunteer" myself for the hardest tasks (like building the assault ramp on the Normandy Beach map) for the satisfaction of accomplishing something difficult.





[1] I could work around it, but I'm lazy

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:

      Beams, beams, beams...
      Support beams, and cross beams, and then beams to fixate the support beams to the cross beams. The more beams you have in a map, the better. There's walls, floors and ceilings, but the rest of the map is pretty much just beams. Beams makes a thief happy.
