I've seen those guys while egg hunting so many times.
That's pretty much how I'm finding them. I figure if they're in the same spot for more than a half hour while I'm running my rout, and I'm always sniping eggs in their screen, they must be a bot.

Do I shoot the flamingo and maybe get twelve gold, or do I shoot the egg and get as much as a hundred and fifty gold? Hmmmmmmm.....

That's the problem with abandoned features: people will find the gaps and loopholes and it might take forever to close and the effect might extend to disrupt the economy again and then the regular players get punished some more with further nerfing.

There were 6 of them scream

And lol I'm no elitist.

But emotion_awesome for posting~
Just emerging from a hiatus, I'm stunned to see so many bots. I realize there have always been bots, but I'd maybe see one every two or three months. Including the ones that Owlie FUBARed last night, I've personally seen nine bots in less than 24 hours. Obviously, as indicated by this thread, there has been at least twice that much bot activity. That's INSANE!

That's okay, I think you are safe. I think she meant for you to beat the 'EndBOTS' three more times to become one.

Aside from the obvious lulz, this is my greatest concern. Even if zOMG is shelved because it didn't profit Gaia enough in their opinion, it still has the potential to disrupt their precious precious marketplace if left unattended. =/

I agree.

I propose dazing every bot that we see. If they get discouraged, maybe they'll stop.

Worth a try?

The way I see it, the person behind them has a lot more free time and resources, and a lot less life than I do. I'd have a couple goes at it, but I'd rather spend more time shorbing up my rings. XD

Worth the lulz, fo sho, but as far as effectiveness goes, reporting and calling the dev's attenton to it may work better.

Another thought: the puppeteer is probably reading our thoughts on the matter. I FEEL YOU WATCHING AND IT'S CREEPY
