    You guys should really do something about the advertising bots in hene ch1 Sciana... There's like 8 in the middle... It makes everyone lag. Also you go to any channel and just stand in maya's house you see Kanna bots just come straight in...

    report bot in game (via Report option) is a good idea?

    In Scania NA - Mu Lung garden (every channel) 80% of the maps in this region have a farmer bot (teleporting + killing everything). Im playing with my Hero class and i cant finish the mission when i need to kill a boss in herb garden 60, because in every channel a bot is killing everything....

    I do see a lot of concerns regarding hackers despite the number of bans.
    Thank you guys for including the maps as well, this makes it much easier for us to relay back to our agents.

    Last night I tried to catch a kanna hacker at Below the Cave (VJ), The guy was fast with CC. Spent like 30 minutes.

    One question to the crowd server players, have you guys noticed the lag reduction since Nexon started banning like no tomorrow?

    I think it might be best to start looking for ways to secure the data packets coming from players to the servers such as using signed TLS or SSL packets to end the problem of hackers using the current generation of packet injection tools. Yes it will impact performance by about 1-5% on modern PCs but it'll stop current hackers cold, plus it might be time to enforce bans of countries not served officially by Nexon America as well as proxy services to bypass country IP enforcement protocols.
