Amount of hackers overwhelming

So today I've been training at Leafre and the Temple of Time, and on just 1 channel alone I found around 6 hackers in those training fields, all Blaze Wizards. It's getting quite ridiculous. I've luckily managed to report them all (which isn't easy, as you need to right-click them while they're blinking all over the map).

Now I would just like to see Nexon actually removing the hackers and do something with the reports. I know that Blizzard has a great system where if someone gets banned, they would actually be banned for life, unless they get a new PC.

    There's a Siren button beside the chat which allows you to report a behavior then a drop-down list of players in the map.

    Otherwise, yeah. I've also seen a significant increase in encountering hackers.

    They should raise the limit of players you can report though, if you're unlucky 10 are just not enough, especially if you include gold sellers too.

    sigh* true even though there's lots of gold sellers and hackers even when limiting we need anti protection in the game since lots of mmorpg games has anti protection against hackers,botters,gold sellers.

    I've been there. reporting people who didn't really teleport away. but changed channels instead.. i did manage to report most, but because they died somehow c:

    On the other side. perhaps it's about time that they finally looked at our tickets about hackers. as i've had 1 open for a good 8 days with no replies. (never bothered making for the rest, as that 1 didn't get a response)

    It's a shame to see our community come to this. Back on EMS, our GM's were online and pro-active. It was a rarity to see a real life hacker! Now, its beginning to feel like it's a rarity to see a legit player levelling lol.
    I was shocked to see meso-sellers smega'ing repeatedly as well. Something I rarely recall seeing on EMS and if it did happen, it was a single smega before the character was removed from the game.
    Is there no way we can either get back our old GM's or perhaps a new set to monitor Luna as I feel I am probably not the only player starting to get disillusioned with recent events.

    This is why I gave up playing on Demethos and went to Reboot, but I've already seen a 15-16 hackers on Reboot in the past week. It's super annoying because even though they can't up the economy here they still ruin the grinding maps.
