The captcha would not bug me all that much. if gets rid of more botters im fine with it.
The resent ban wave of botters makes me hopeful. that they are actually trying to catch these buggers. and i kind aunderstand they do it in waves, if they only do 1 here and 1 there, that makes it easier for the creaters of the bots to take meassures to not be detected as easilly.
Happy holidays to you all . and may 2013 be botfree
Behind every bot there is a "human", be it 1 per 100 chars or whatever but still working pair of eyes. So CAPTCHA might slow down bots a bit, unless it would be very agressive and then it annoys normal players.
I wouldn't mind having to solve a captcha once in a while, but I would hate it out of principle I think, "oh, the game is going that way". On another note, spill the beans Overneathe, what fat loot did Blizzard send us for Christmas?
I can't see why anyone would be agaisnt typing in a couple of letters every now and again if it helps prevents botters, i don't know how much botters effected the economy but im sure they've played a big part in those hefty prices. I hope this is implemented before the "expansion" and make it an even playing ground when saving up for those items you want
that captcha is a joke i hope
there was a game, still is i think, runescape with random puzzles that u need to do every 30 minutes, they were annoying sometimes but they also had rewards, those can thin out the bots
ps: For the Swarm
Captcha would be more annoying than anything. The only real time you could prompt it is before you enter a game, otherwise HC players would go berserk having it pop up mid-game. And I already filled out something to prove who I am before-hand, an authenticator. If I have to continually prove who I am beyond that, I'll probably quit from annoyance.
