    Well I'm done, Eat **** Nexon.

    Your recent update to the anti- hack bans people indiscriminately for background processes and you choose to stand by it and the decisions it makes.

    I'm surprised they think that they have perfected their ban bot simply because "hey we got more bans this time"

    nevermind the impossibility of having hacks the day of a new patch, which is when a majority of the bans took place including mine.

    What is up with that letter? Am I ever going to be able to play again without fear of being banned for no reason?

    If you don't use third party programs such as auto hotkey, macro programs, or botting tools, then you have nothing to worry about.

    Finally action against macro users.

    Those cheaters should get banned or at least get removed from ranking.

    I dunno, some people claim to be getting banned even without that stuff. . .

    Finally got sick of waiting and logged in today. Saw botters doing their thing like always. Whatever changes they made to the hack detection, it sure isn't catching them. :/

    I knew that without even being able to log in.

    all their change did was increase bans on innocent people, they then took those numbers as a sign something was working when in fact, the opposite is true.

    It is not illegal to scanning players computers as long it is still an actions related to the game or to guarantee product quality / game quality for players. It is similar to antivirus software or some troubleshoooting software or when we are updating any software, all of them will scan our computers before it does any actions. Those are actions to make sure that the software can run as intended as it is. Otherwise all those antivirus or any other sotfware that requires computer scanning would have been courted since a long time ago. Though Nexon have to mention it on their policy to make it clear for players that Maplestory will do course of actions (scanning) to ensure every users can get the best quality of the games and nothing interfere when the program/application is running. What is illegal is if they change/modify other applications, because it is others property. If you don't like the way Nexon scanning your computers or doesn't want them to check your computers, it is simple, just don't play the game. it won't. Uninstall it ^^. It is how software works.

    If Nexon want to be more sure and avoid any legal issues, everytime players login in, just make them tick or agree to let players scan their computers. If they doesn't agree, then the Maplestory applications will shutdown by itself. Similar to when we are trying to install any program, they will ask us to follow the policy of the company, otherwise the installation will be cancelled. As long as it is under users/owners permission, it should be legal.

    None of the people i know in reboot so far getting banned. So probably the best course is for Nexon to read players account individually on what caused the ban.

    I still strongly suggesting that maplestory use Video Recording as another way for Ban appeal. Probably Nexon can test it first. Like, reccomend players to do Video Recording for ban Appeal. It is not a must, but reccomended to do it and send via Tickets. If there are so many players who do VIdeo Recording and appeal for the same ban trouble, then you will know there might be some trouble. Coz players can make as many accounts as they want, can hide under annonymous, but the face is real. It is the real idenitity. They can't mask their face. If maplestory applies this, sooner or later, they can do actions regarding ban appeal a lot more easier and can make a better solution. Instead of because so many annnonymous accounts on other websites or on Maplestory forum, suddenly reporting auto ban, while Nexon still can't be sure which report is legit and which are not legit. Obviously, some of the reports are true. But some might be not.
