    You guys keep banning legitimate players for ¨¨botting.¨ I thought this problem was going to be resolved before you began banning characters again. This is just purely unfair.

    Stopping all bans because some players are being banned unfairly isn't a good idea.
    That said, it is a bit strange that they've increased the number of bans compared to previous weeks.
    Maybe the hackers/botters decided their new years resolution was to make even more meso?
    We have the character names with these posts though, most of these do seem like throwaway names, though there are also plenty that don't.

    Edit: It might be a little more complex or possibly risky (potential abuse from hackers), but listing the ban reason might be a good idea.
    Rather than just slapping "hack" or "bot", it would be nice to know EXACTLY what these people are accused of.

    Banned cuz of that bullshit dll/memory corruption bug they still haven't fixed. Told me I was banned for not taking damage from mobs for a certain amount of time. DC'd and banned 5 minutes after that dll **** spontaneously appeared while I was training in End of World and customer support won't believe a word I say.
    So yeah... definitely unfair. I want all the hours I spent farming coins daily on multiple characters back. Didn't even get to spend any cuz was waiting on 30% sale too since I won't be getting unbanned until after the event ends.
