    Hi
    Can anyone quote ToS or CoC where it mentions the use of 3rd party programs (like most modern keyboard macro tools) or scripts to automate simple stuff?
    I am not talking about automated complex gameplay.
    We have all seen people botting, reported (or not) and nothing really happens.
    The game offers auto-loot pill and auto-tool.
    Anyone can do a simple "Next target after every 20 seconds" script lets say.
    Is this against either the ToSC or the CoC or either MA or Cyrene PP?
    I was going to ask this on the AMA but my forum account wasn't approved on time ;-(

    To clarify, my intention is to level the playing field.
    If basic scripting is allowed and others do it, I see no reason not to.
    If it is against the rules, are the rules enforced?
    Rules that are not enforced are void rules, and can be disregarded?

    Just a quick scan of the EULA, "affecting the system interface" can cover quite a lot i guess.

    I see no difference between me repeatedly hitting "TAB" (next target) every 20 seconds, while loot pill is on and auto-tool is on, or having "something" doing it for me. Use of such "something" won't give me any advabtage that I could consider "cheating".
    MA may deem it so, though.

    That can be intepretended both ways i guess, in my opinion that gives you an "unfair" advantage over players who don't have tools that auto hunt for them. I would say that is cheating.

    I wont condone the use of a auto hunting macro, but I would say if you do use one.... Monitor it while watching a movie or whatever. Dont let it run rampart in a high population hunting area if you catch my drift.

    Unless you are affecting other players, no one cares.
