The ArcheAge site has good news for most players, bad news for those who choose to use third-party bots and hacks. A new program has been put into place that has significantly improved the team's ability to detect the use of bots and to subsequently put into play new enforcement rules.
The first time a player is detected as using a bot or hack, a warning will be issued. Any further activity in this regard will see the player subject to a permanent ban regardless of how long they have been playing the game.
We don’t like to ban anyone who’s playing and enjoying the game, but fair game play for the legitimate community members always has to be and always will be our top priority.
Adventurers, please spread the word on this and let your friends, guild mates, and fellow community members know that these programs are not welcome in ArcheAge. We greatly appreciate the help in spreading the word.
