Nexon's policies of combating bots by lowering drop rates from elite mobs and lowering drop rates for nodestones backfires immensely by forcing the playerbase to rely on bots for the supply of these items. It is prohibitively time-expensive to obtain these items in sufficient quantities legitimately, making bots the only practical source of these items as well as making selling these items for legit players less valuable.
If you wanted to address the over-supply of these items from bots, then make these items untradeable and allow players the ability to obtain them with higher drop rates. This discourages botting for these items as well as encouraging players to spend the necessary time to hunt for items themselves.
Nexon also needs to be more up-front with players when they adjust these drop rates, because they come out of the blue and discourage us.
