Are GMs even active at non-peak hours?
Just wondering because I tend to see a ton of hackers/botters during the non-peak hours (since I'm Australian), and I assume they do it then because GMs are American (or European for the Europe server) and would be asleep along with most of the rest of the playerbase. So does reporting hackers even do anything if there isn't an active GM team for off-peak times? I imagine they might only be able to tail reported players around peak hours, but I've seen quite a few hackers with a bunch of cash cosmetics and in high ranked guilds, so they would probably just be playing "normally" during that time and botting at night, meaning they won't get caught red handed by GMs. I'm at a loss here.
I've reported maybe less than 10 times cause there's too many to bother but no GM's ever showed up. I have falsely been kicked for "the HACK reason" over 5 times though. So at least they're doing something, even if that something is faulty. /s
And if you ever step into Henesys Ch 1 there's at least a total of 10-20 bots/hackers that announce they're selling mesos on whatever site. Not that hard to just walk in there, right-click each bot and delete them... or maybe it is.
The kicking "for the HACK reason" is automated.
Is there enough? Probably not.
Are they looking in the right areas? Probably not.
Arcane river is infested with players botting for nodestones and trying to get to 250. Now they have infested some of the best training maps at Arcana. They aren't even macroing anymore. Almost all of them hack. Despite this they are not banned and majority have made it to 250 or are 240+ currently. I'd advise GMs patrol Arcana a bit as you will find many 230-240+ players hacking.
In that case, all Nexon needs to do is keep a GM in-game 24/7 (like they keep telling us they do...), and the bots will never train/farm.
How do you know there is a 100$ add-on?
