    Hey Folks, if u think "maybe I will go down to blackthorn dungeon and farm some gold ingots and enjoy one or two minax drops", you will not find a possibility to do so. No matter if other folks are doing this; but there is a blatent scripter active for days now, using a GD and a dumb script with ALL KILL attacking any spawning ele in the same moment it is spawning, followed by an greater heal for the drag. This goes almost from server up to server down.
    This game is so corrupted, unbelievable...

    You could take care of him the old way if you do believe he is a scripter. Just get a few tamers down there with GD then release them make sure you have popcorn ready and enjoy the show. That is how it was done back in the day.

    Heh heh This brings back memories of the Painted Caves Scripter(s) hunt. Remember them? They were 23/7 on every shard and always in Painted Caves. Everybody started hunting them and they disappeared.

    I´ve seen Darkwood suit characters on multiple shards in the mage room (Fel and Tram). Same setup on all of them.
    Sometimes they are attended, sometimes not...

    Some Stratics posters say some out there stuff. I'd question almost all of you and even me on how they determined it was a scripter before you all mob tactics some innocent. LOL

    The char I refer to is supposed to afk script: Positions itself in a way where - if AFK - he can control the ele spawn and also a lich that might walk it's way down south and might target him in a way that his dragon will always be targeted first (stands in the opened southern door, therefor can still control the dragon with commands). If you really play your char, that's not necessary. Char doesn't move, doesn't react in any way to anything happening around him. Sript: A rather primitive one. A spawning ele is in the same moment it spawns attacked by the Greater, commanded by an "ALL KILL". "ALL KILL" comes instantly when the ele spawns, I am not even able to attack the ele first with an archer (only if the Greater has to move). After "ALL KILL", with say 3 sec delay, comes an "Greater Heal" on the Drag - no matter if it is wounded or not. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

    Now - maybe that animal sitting in your backyard that barks and looks like a dog is in fact your brother trying to tell you something, but you should assime that it is just a dog.

    Don't get offended by the ones that will chime in with defenses saying "how do you know it's a scripter". The same people do it in every thread, and they do it for a reason. They're no different than the people who constantly try to debunk ufo/nasa/etc videos on YouTube...because they have a vested interest in doing so....I'll leave that to everyones interpretation.

    I'm not sure if you meant it this way....but to me this part of what you wrote sounds like your saying Aliens who are hiding on Earth are commenting on youtube videos trying to convince people they don't exist.....lol. If aliens were really living on Earth I'd be very disappointed if they didn't have better things to do than comment on youtube videos. :tinhat:

    No lol, but there are people on YouTube that are paid to oppose any opinion their employer wants them to oppose. My point , which was missed is, scripters will chime in on script threads in an attempt to debunk the existence of scripters. :)

    Umm... Same people posting it? I have a low post count. You can look through all my posts and debunk your theory immediately. Positioning your character in a way any random Joe finds suspicious and having a faster connection isn't the same as scripting is all I'm saying.

    The position fulfills a purpose, and this purpose relates to being afk and nothing else. Faster connection?? An explanation for INSTANT "All kill" if mob spawns? You don't have an explanation for the repeated patterns? All kill - Greater Heal - All kill - Greater Heal... And GH no matter if the drag was hit or not? You can pull the hit bar of the drag and see it yourself... this is clearly a bot, and not a player controlling his char. Must admit that u come up a bit shady...

    then u would be the first person who admits that he will always push F2 after F1 no matter if it has a purpose or not. If I play my tamer, I heal my drag when it's necessary, and not because I can't control my fingers...

    Come on, your whole argumentation is ridiculous. Do you own an account where we would find a char called "S...... the tamer"? ;)

    Just page and move on, even if he weren't scripting you would be upholding the hunters code of honor and finding something else to kill, right?

    Positioning your character so you don't have to repetitively open a door seems like smart game play, its not like the monsters in blackthorn require much effort.

    Setting up a macro to select nearest hostile -> Sick Pet, or Select Nearest Follower -> Heal, not unreasonable either. When you're watching netflix while pushing one button every 4 seconds.... zzzZzzzZzzz....

    Ranks right up there with "Player is playing different than me/not responding to me/beating me, must be cheat/script/bot/hack/etc." For More Examples just listen to Atlantic General Chat.

    :bdh:

    I'm surprised stratics even allows these posts anymore.

    Scripter???....perhaps...
    afk??? no way to say!
    And didnt Mes recently say ( paraphrasing of course)..."play anyway you want...win anyway you want...just dont be afk". ( or words to that effect)

    Without standing next to his/her computer you have no way of knowing if he/she is afk....

    Except, this has never been true. Do what you want until the person constantly badgers mesanna until she tires of the whining and shows up and effects a change.

    Sure you do. Try dragging a balron toward them from halfway across the dungeon. If they don't react, you know you've got a scripter. I mean face it, we all know what scripters look like, and these whiny posts about "Well what if it's just a normal person who farms in the same spot for 19 hours a day and never reacts to their environment!" are a joke that never convinces anyone of anything.

    So....um....you all going to quit killing my toons so poor little Walandari can make her 33 cents a day I pay her? :p

    41 cents indeed! I would have to move my operation somewhere else and hire another farming crew if I had to pay such wages. Gah!

    Oh the irony that will come from this awful advice.

    [​IMG]

    That moment when you are banned for luring on an 'afk scripter'. Make sure you have a camera handy so you can post your face when it happens. It'll probably look something like this :sad2:

    I've killed a ton of scripters this way and this never happens. Unless you stand around pulling mobs repeatedly for so long that a GM has time to actually respond to a page and then show up invisibly and observe you in the act, you're in the clear. With scripters you get them killed once and their ghost just stands there, so that's never going to happen.

    The only way a scripter will know it was you is if he was there at the time of death. If he was there then he was not scripting.
    I was able to at one point sit out side my 18x18 and see a scripter mining. And yes I know he was a scripter because I don't know anyone that will recall to a new spot that is only a screen away when casting the spell takes longer then walking there. And would be doing it all day long .
    But am the one who gets pulled to jail when training my skills in my own home just because I left for a few mins to use the washroom.
    But am sorry to say this with out all the scripter accounts out there this game would not make the money EA needs to keep the lights on.

    Not sure why they are using a tamer. Sampire much easier and much faster :). as far as afker's I just work around them nowadays. Of course a thief is always nice down there as well. Take a disadvantage and turn it into an advantage.

    Yes and when he pages for it he can say I came home and found my character dead.... I know someone lured that dragon over here! And I'll just say ..... "I didn't lure the dragon I was running from it!"
