Ah the old classic. Play completely legit, get screwed over by the game and turn to cheating to recoup losses. I ended up starting botting for a similar reason on runescape like a decade ago, worked my ass off and got banned for a silly reason or something - I forget exactly. Next thing I know I'm botting on 5 different accounts at once Then my desire to cheat just kinda carried over to Neopets.
Buuuuuut this isn't my thread so I'll shut up about me Welcome to Codex, hope you enjoy it here!
