In Topic: Coli revamp & captcha is coming

03 October 2016 - 01:12 PM

In today's Words on the Wind, they discussed the upcoming coli revamp. The part that pertains most to us:

"Camping Buffs

We aren't going to sugarcoat this one, but we think you'll enjoy it nonetheless. With the addition of keyboard controls comes a very big risk for botting and game automation, which is expressly against our Terms of Use. Botting, especially in a feature like the Coliseum, can be extremely damaging to the game's economy, and it is our responsibility to make sure we do as much as possible to prevent these types of players from exploiting it. To help combat this, we will be adding a CAPTCHA activity called Camping that will appear periodically after Coliseum battles and require the player to click an image to prove they aren't a robot.

We know. CAPTCHAs aren't the most fun thing in the world, which is why we'd like to reward legitimate players for using ours! Each camping activity will offer to buff your party for the entire duration of the next battle you participate in (excluding PVP). The buff your party is offered when camping is random, but will come in the form of the following types:

+ 5% Agility
+ 5% Defense
+ 5% Intellect
+ 5% Mind
+ 5% Quickness
+ 5% Strength
+ 5% Vitality
+ 5% Experience Gain

We believe that this will both help us catch and stop botters as well as give real humans a bit of an edge for their battles to come"

To which I say: well shit. Any ideas what to do?
