This evening in the moors, and your typical OOC drama were creeps complaining about the local triple boxer running 3 BAs and wiping the freeps out one by one.
At first I really paid no attention to it but other creeps observed something that at first I did not notice: the fact that they were literally all moving at the same time, to the same place and all firing at the exact same moment, etc.
It was almost impossible to read the names because their avatars were literally inside one another.. that is how in sync they were.
Obviously it was some sort of bot or macro...
So, my logic at first to other creeps: don't like it report it and let the GMs handle it.
And other creeps response was simply: turbine does not care... they say it's okay to run things like this.
In disbelief, I submitted a ticket and the GM that responded told me there is no rule against running multiple accounts with macros and such so what this player is doing, well as lame as it is, it's perfectly okay and if I wanted I could submit feedback about it.
So, now I am in head scratcher mode.... it's okay to run bots and macros to triple box?
Since my ticket is just closed by the GM without a chance to even respond... I don't even have a chance to point out this from the section of the EULA entitled 'code of conduct'
Since these creeps were all high ranking creeps, and I have seen them running around for quite some time, it's clear that this part of the EULA I either misinterpret or they have concluded that this player is not breaking it, yet I fail to see how this is the case.18. You may not create, post, use or distribute any utilities, emulators or other third party software tools without the express written permission of Turbine (including, without limitation, macroing programs, botting programs, server emulators, client hacks, map hacks, and data gathering utilities).
So, as players what should we say or do when we come across this and the GMs are unwilling or unable to listen?
