Modern server without boxing?

    All I get out of this is a type of frustrated panic like when dad will take the keys to the Corvette away if you don't mind your manners. My previous statements still stand as such.

    A no-box server can be done and when it comes around it will be glorious when you are on your own server boxing with other boxers while players who prefer to play with other single players are on another.

    If we make a server for just that can we make a forum for just those people too?;)

    Oh, yes a separate forum heading is in our future. Hallelujah, brothers and sisters!

    I don't box so a boxing limit has no impact on me at all but that doesn't change that they have not shown any ability to enforce boxing rules and when you have households that have multiple players who play together it becomes hard to separate the groups of players from the group that is played by a single person.

    Enforcement for third party program abusers and bot-boxers and boxers can be done. Period.

    If that was so easy why do we see plenty of reports on TLP servers about people who appear to be using those tools for their advantage? I understand that is the goal but that doesn't mean it is as easy as you think. Not to mention it is perfectly possible to play multiple accounts without using any special software or tools.

    That all depends on what goes on in the meetings with the current gaming company. Difficulty is a matter of Darkpaw Gaming making it more of a priority in my opinion. It is perfectly possible to release one server for boxers and people who don't mind playing with them along with another server with no boxers. These are great times we're living int, brother!

    What do meetings have anything to do with the ability to detect people who are using third party software to cheat or are violating rules in other ways? From what I have seen on the forums recently they do appear to be taking a more aggressive approach because waves of people are getting suspended/banned each month which shows they are working on it. However that doesn't mean that they can catch everything let alone do it easily.

    Considering that they have released a server with a hard box limit of 2 accounts per player and people reported players violating that rule on the server makes me question what you are saying.

    There you go, again! You answered your own question. Agreeing to disagree even if you won't type it out yourself. You're such a pal. I think it might have to do with something about a certain comprehension level, again, but progress is progress.

    What exactly did I answer? By stating that they are working on removing cheaters but still miss people who cheat when they do it? I never said that they are doing nothing just that they have no way to catch everyone. Making server where you can't box but only catching some of the people who box would cause problems and discontent on the server.

    Theoretically speak of course. I think a box and no-box server combo release is a splendid idea. It would alleviate the already toxic environment and frustration non-box players already experience with bot-boxers by keeping them in their own isolated server to compete boxer to boxer. Individual players can be baddies as well, but way less frequently. You do keep answering your own rhetoric btw.

    While it might be a good idea from a player perspective doesn't mean that it will actually work in practice. They did that exact idea with the Adarune (only 2 accounts per player) and Rizlona (unlimited boxing) and you still saw complaints about boxers on Adarune. You keep trying to suggest things that they have already tried and appear that they did not work as expected.

    It is still doable with proper enforcement.

    That's because modern MMOs are fast paced. You can technically box in WoW, but you'll either require software to make it work, or you'll do everything really really crappy. EQ is slow. That's why boxing is possible here.
