View Full Version : 1 minute captcha

It has been brought up a few times before, just want to make an attempt to place it in the spotlight once more:

Captcha's should stay against cheattools obviously.
But if it's possible, I'm sure everyone would like to fill in less captcha's. It would be nice to have an "activation captcha", after filling that one in, you can do all actions for 1 or 2 minutes before you need to fill in another one.

We'll build a virtual statue for the admin who can fix that =)

That'd be great, but it'd suck for slayers.

Less captcha's are great, just slayers would get owned - or have to use more strategy.

And we all know how people whine when they have to actually use strategy.

Only intercepting sells will require you to be very quick, although it remains possible still, if your activation captcha is.. active already. :)
The "regular slaying" will remain the same as most of those people you attack don't intend to spend their gold fast (because most aren't on).
Turnfarming will not change as it's pretty easy to attack right after the turn if you're "activated".

No. That would, if anything, help cheattools more. Activation captcha, goldscan, autohit and autospend, repeat.

Are is correct here

A program (Well coded), And a decent connection could allow you to attack/recon/spend, ect aprox 100 times in that 60 second period

Should be possible to catch someone who recons 100 times in 60 secs..
Most people who cheat don't want to do any efforts. Meaning, they won't fill in their captcha every minute. It could be useful for regular people, but these days the admins are actively banning people more than in the past.
Activation captcha's would make the game alot more attractive. You always can cheat if you want to, even now. Removing the captcha's would increase the gameplay, thats what the game needs.
