    Right I know theres other threads about the bot spam but thats the point, its spam right?
    So, its really clear that daybreak doesnt give a rats a$$ about its players, they just want money. Maybe if they look at the botspam as lost revenue theyll do something about it.

    to the chatbot operators, theres a special place in hell for you, you cant make it there soon enough.
    you dont have a family to support, thats the funniest thing ive ever heard. you dont even have a gf much less a wife and engage active reproductive activities.

    to daybreak staff, its ruining the game, why the f&^k isnt anything being done about it??????

    How do you attack a Spam bot in a chat well simple you create a ban bot which then permanently bans all Spam Bots. The developers create multiple spam Bots and deploy them in each chat. It's extremely easy to create a Spam bot which means it's extremely easy to create a ban bots specifically for this issue. Why hasn't it been done you may ask well it's simple they expect you to do the job for them by reporting the issue through ticket reporting system. How do you stop the hacking you may ask ? Very simple you see DC Universe goes down for maintenance every day which means the code gets changed at which the hackers would then have to Source the code which takes time. The developers would then add an anti hacking game guard which most mmos use and it does a great job at keeping the hackers out/bots. I play a game called 12sky 2 on pc with a game guard let me tell you 10 years not one hacker got through. And 12 Sky 2 doesn't even have maintenance everyday so DC Universe Online would have triple the security because the code gets changed every day

    What's most important to them is that you fill their pockets with money.

    One of the constant struggles against spam bots is that they regularly adjust their messages to get around any filters the devs put into place. It's been a game of whack-a-mole for years. And with the game being free-to-play, they can just make another account if their current account gets shut down.

    If there was an easy way to fix it permanently, I have the feeling it would have been done long ago.

    There's been speculation that some of those spammers might even be on the payroll ;p
    If this comment disappears, then you will know ;)

    This is the fourth Thread you've started this month about spam. Irony much?

    Got some stream for charity event spawning boss for many hours so you can probably go and watch those stream to see if the spammer are active while they are online or not

    i guess they figure, in order to end the spam, they must first become the spam :p

    PRODUCER’S LETTER – March 2024

    as well as getting back into the game (racing my 9-year-old to level 30 on new characters).

    He will see the gold seller/spammer for sure

    Before I reply, let me say...I agree. The spammers are annoying and impede the proper use of chat. 100%...let's get rid of them.

    However, I see 2 names, over 3 chat inputs...over a few min. The one name on LFG and Trade has to at least be premium, and would take 3 min to put up 3 message (1.5 min if they sub...doubtful). Ignore them and they are solved....for today. While I agree, that's annoying and we shouldn't need to do it....AND it would be way better if we had a way for an account wide ignore...ignoring a few names doesn't take that long. Honestly the one flaw with ignoring isn't the time it takes to do's the 1000 name limit...which you will hit in a few years if you did a few a day. They could at least uncap that to 5K or something and make the ignore solution more long term effective....if that's the only solution we have.

    I'd guess the root issue is they don't have adaptive filters. Blocking a specific sender or 'word' in the line would just make the spammers change the word. This might be a limitation of the system...or the coding. Who knows? However, I'd guess that they are aware they exist and unless they are in cahoots, people buying from them has to be impacting DI's bottom if they had the way to block them...don't you think they would?
