Bot Checks (in General)

Demigod March 4 2010 9:54 AM EST

Considering that our player base is no longer 1000+, is there any chance we could have the bot rate reduced ever so slightly? 15% less often? Maybe just limit them to no more than once every 15 fights?

I know it won't happen, but repeated bot checks annoy me more than bot runners. I hate it when I get multiple in quick succession.

Players Counsel, I'm looking at you.

And while you're at it, bring back the chat carp bot. I miss that thing.

The frequency was already lowered recently.

Yeah I havent gotten a botcheck in hella long

Well, thanks for lowering it recently. I'd still love to see a frequency limit so I don't have to pause every five fights when luck just doesn't go my way, but I'll take what I can get.

I believe you have a 2.5% chance of getting a bot check per fight. So you should be getting on average 2-3 for ever 100 fights. Though remember hitting unconscious characters also counts.
