bot checks (in Off-topic)

Botcheck puke/eyes I mean seriously. Where do these things come from.

A computer that only understands 0's and 1's not English?

I still don't get why we have to get so many? One or two during a session of fighting seems reasonable. Most of the time I will get ten or more burning a full set of 160 BA.?

If you only get a few, a bot that's sometimes lucky may be profitable.

Its seems that once you are past nub, with the ba caps, a bot would be pointless.

Not if it helps burning ALL your accrued BA for a day, and even less if it can buy it.

I understand the need for the bot checks, it would just be nice if they weren't so incredibly random. I can go for 50 BA without hitting one. Then I'll get 4 of them in two cycles of my fightlist.

If they were predictable, a bot could take advantage from that...

I personally enjoy having botchecks. Or at least I don't mind them. They're like minigames.

Not talking about having them every 20 turns like clockwork. It could be like, "at least one every 15" or something like that, so you're not running into them back-to-back.

I suppose it's not a huge deal, it's just kinda annoying.

I know. I would rather that bot checks are based on a % that is increasing as you are not getting them.
say botcheck:
fight 1: 100% free of botcheck
fight 2: 99% free of botcheck
fight 3: 99%*99% free of botcheck etc

I was just kinda disgusted by the mental picture of puke eyes!
