Botcheck issue? (in General)

{cb1}dyno October 4 2010 7:04 AM EDT

"Your privilege to fight was suspended for 60 minutes when you failed a bot check at 7:01 AM EDT. Current server time is 7:02 AM EDT.
You may fight again when that time has elapsed, or you may continue immediately after paying a fine of $263,938. Click here to pay $263,938 and continue fighting."

I've been playing cb on and off for about 6 years - The box never loaded up, and although a refresh usually fixes this, it just wouldn't appear. I let it sit for a bit, re-started my browser, and it went to this. Anyone ever experience this? First time for me.

I'll pay the fine, but I'm not happy about it :(

Fines are too expensive!

I don't see how paying out a fee like this dissuades someone from botting

But I certainly see how it could dissuade a newer player from sticking with the game

No one deals with this? Admins, any insight as to what may have happened? Once in 6 years is rather odd for this situation...

Dyno it is that expensive because you are in the middle of an NCB. I noticed similar prices when I was running mine then when I finished it the prices were down to 1/5th of the original cost. It is the only explaination I can give you.

Btw 1 time in 6 years is freaking awesome and you should be happy that you do not have many more, I would have to play 100 times more than you to get a similar

Browser problems +botchecks = very frustrating. I walked off the other day for some reason and I came back to the good old botcheck page... like 10 minutes later lol. Thats when I just log off :)

264k is quite a big fine indeed, I'm lucky to only have 35k fines...

p.s. you did't fill in a bot check, I cannot see anything past that point.

He *did* say he couldn't ever get it to come up.

User problem it happens sometimes, whether it was the internet, his browser, or computer. I'm certain it was user end.

Pulling out one of his shurikens, he throws it into Titan's leg. +1 wound.

believe me - "IE is the devil" is an appropriate response. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if that was the issue, but I figured I'd ask around. Also Z, never complained about the actual amount - I'm familiar with the inflation NCB deals with :)
