Theres two major forms of Botting in Vc, one is true botting the other is player coop botting. Both are unfair.
Program Botting, using a code to enable skill advancement during non gaming time ie when you're asleep at work or whatever.
Coop Botting, you share the character with friends, each spends 8 to 12 hours playing the character. Enabling skill advancement on a 24 hour basis.
Many Asians are claiming that they are not botting but playing the game for extended times, usually through coop means. As a result many asian guilds overtook american and british guilds because we don't tend to share account details.
This in turn led to the obvious accusations. And much racial name calling. The games developers are primaryly korean with american backing. And their mods come down firmly with the asian players. Banning trolls who aren't asian and promoting racism on the forums whilst at the same time stating hypocrisy that it wont be acceptable.
Ignore the forums tho and the game is full of botters and people afk 24 hours at a time farming and then selling merchanise. They demand the most retarded prices and pretty much rule themselves out in any economy. Sheer numbers make up for most of the money generated.
Having looked at a number of other asian games, they all seem to be following the same line and will eventually be asian only as only asians can be bothered to put up with the level of grief required to play.
The greatest pity being that of those asians i played, grouped and guilded with were all supremely great people and fantastic to know. They would fit into any Euro/American game as neatly as any american or european. But since numbers count the avg is otherwise disposed. Many love to cheat, they seem to enjoy twisting words and meanings, they encourgage racial dogma against america and britain overall to me, it justifies why most brits and americans find them hard to play with. As with many Russian players i've known, many are great and pleasant people to know, but the general attitude seems to be politically biased against us. The sheer numbers of Russian Pirates in Eve attest to that or Russian Pirates in VC...
As much as well can try to not allow RL politics into our gaming, it is not a choice in playing predominantly asian games. Politics seems to be the all and everything there. My little bro players FF on the Xbox and is always talking about having to put up with racist abuse and political dogma from asian players. Seems to be a course we will all have to start living with in days to come.
