My betting is highly-elaborate April Fools' prank. If so, mad respect to them.
Above anything else, their admission of 'Uh, yeah, this will trigger bot checkers on you but we added an item buyable by the correct classes to protect them from Lie Detectors and Bot Bans'. I just grinned to myself and was thinking, with that they're definitely taking the piss.
If legit, this is certainly one of the maddest ideas there's yet been.
As a sidenote, I appreciated them using my favourite PvP theme for the vid. d:
- you can stop your auto-combat characters from getting banhammered for two hours buy buying a 200k item from the NPC. You can buy up to 10 of those at once, for 20 hours of uninterrupted grind.
You also have the option of buying a 24-hour immunity for an NX fee from the Cash Shop, and you can have as many of these as you want for an 'infinigrind'.
It's almost certainly a joking idea, I mean, can you think how many newly-banned cplayers are going to be crying up and down the SEA forums when, having not inspected the patch notes, they go on and curiously enable the 'auto-fight' on their minted Level 170 Kaiser without packing autoban immunisation?
this is on pocket maplestory too and it doesnt cost NX("candies" in this version)
only demon slayers can take some advantage of it since its only basic attacks(no skills, no autopot so u have to watch out)
its not broken at all can u all stop overreacting its a mobile game lol
@wall: Hypothetically speaking I'd guess the best auto-fighter would be... er, Zen. Since the chain attack catapults them forwards, they'd end up taking down a bunch of mobs the crummy AI hadn't even planned to.
Though if there were no auto-pot, Kaiser (he has passive regeneration right?) would be the only viable choice in most cases, as all the others would eventually run out of HP and die. Even DA, seeing as it's Double Slash that's being used supposedly.
