Will botting become hard, even useless?

"If a rune is spawned and you leave it alone for more than 5 minutes, the rune will be cursed by an Elite Boss and will penalize the players hunting in that map. If you leave the rune alone for 5+ minutes, EXP and drop rate will be reduced by 50%. If you leave the rune alone for 10 minutes it goes up to -65%, 15 minutes -80%, 20 minutes -100% EXP and drop rate. When you activate the rune the curse will fade from the map."

An update coming to KMS.
It made me think of botters who are clogging even the level 200+ maps. Although American devs prefer to eat rather than hunt hackers, the Koreans, probably unknowingly, is giving us an automated auto-bot update.

If a hacker leaves his character afk for the night, his/her EXP will end up being so bad that they will get less than 1% in the whole night after level 190/200.

Hacking will more or less lose its main virtue, now that the hacker MUST activate a rune every 15 minutes at best to not get ridiculously horrid EXP.

@nathanjo: I think they're altering more with the runes than just this. They may or may not have the same issue in KMS with programs being able to use auto-rune.

And if there's one thing Korea can do, its to get rid of hackers. Only main difference here is that this is not part of their anti-hack, this is in the game.

@pilox Pretty sure less koreans hack is because their maple ids were associated with their k.s.s.n(stupid basil filter making me put dots inbetween this) at one point, although I cant say for sure now, considering that koreans use their cell phone numbers instead?

So if I use a rune in one map...and go to train in another, and a rune has been there for 20 minutes, I'll get virtually no EXP? and be unable to use the rune in the map for 15 mins :S

@revenants: Pretty sure that's also why some Koreans will resort to using their family members' RRNs (and others they know) in order to continue accessing the game should they find themselves banned under any circumstance. It does only go so far however.

@OP: if it's anything like previous attempts to combat hacking (from lie detectors to anti-botting monsters like what the Snow Witch used to be), it will either do nothing, be a nuisance or hackers & botters will always find a way to circumvent those preventative measures.
