Well perheaps someone has fun doing this because he is chatting, watching a movie or doing anything else while farming some credits.

Or perheaps some has no fun doing this, but fun in crafting (and as we all know: you need credits for crafting).

Nothing wrong with that
Retired!

Woah, you're quite aggressive. You seem to be under the impression that people were in fact not exploiting, yet as of now no one has given proof that the people banned were innocent. Just speculation that the action was unwarranted which is laughable.

I'm glad you weren't there to see me working on The Insane title in WoW. And yes, I thought it was fun.

Farming an item or camping an item for hours and hours and hours of a day is not exploiting. It's farming. You do not get banned for farming an item. If you're actually arguing this, can I be banned because I have my level 43 alt parked in Belsavis and log it intermittently to see if the world boss (The Primal Destroyer) has respawned so we (the guild) can constantly kill it as we're farming for the white colour crystal? It's exactly the same thing.

It sure doesn't sound like it was an exploit (aka duping items/currency, botting, things that are obviously not game intended) to me or most of the people on this forum.

Could you clarify why you believe what happened was an exploit because I don't see anything that indicates it was due to anything more than a poor game design decision?

I'm stepping out of this, you people seem to have some false belief of what these warnings were handed out for and don't want reason. You can rage all you want, but Bioware stopped botters and exploiters and I for one am happy.

After reporting bots in wow week after week and never having them disappear, this is a breath of fresh air.

If you can't even answer basic questions people are trying to ask you regarding your posts then really drop out and don't bother.

You sound like a corporate fanboy 100% acting this way.

Getting banned in an MMO is a serious problem for some and people are concerned for a good reason (because they are worried something like this could happen to them under similar circumstances).

So was there any action done to credit buyers? Until that happens, there will always be farmers in the game.

You're pretending you can get banned through normal gameplay with no reason to believe that. If you don't know the exploits running rampant in Ilum might I recommend reviewing this thread to learn of them?

I'm no corporate fanboy, if anything I'm a little sour on Bioware after DA2, I just can't stand people who make asanine statements and whine after getting banned when they know they were cheating.

You specifically claim that these people have been exploiting and botting. Do you have proof of this?

Otherwise I prefer to give the consumer the benefit of the doubt and from what I've read in this forum and others it sounds much more like a game design flaw than a bug or exploit.

I've already asked you numerous times to clarify why you think its an exploit and you've decided to instead drop out of the conversation.

Either explain why you believe this to be true or I'm not sure you can honestly bring anything else to the table anyway.

Edit: You can't rage over people assuming its Bioware's fault when you obviously are just assuming the opposite. See how they are both assumptions? Either you have proof its botting/exploiting that you are withholding or you're just assuming it was the consumers to blame.
