The text captchas are very annoying and they slow the gameplay down , why not replace em with number captachas like the ones in the recruiter?

I'd assume because number captcha's would eventually be cracked, opening the way for (more public) ABs.

This exactly. People would find ways to crack it, and due to there being less numbers than letters people would build an auto buyer that can make these captchas easier to crack without actually being there. Basically, what it has now limits cheating.

the captchas in koc is already cracked and they been cracked for hmm, 5 (?) ages now as they havent changed the captcha since age 5 (4??)...

also, I see the idea, and I can support it as I hate captchas, even though, it takes away a little of the game in the sell catching part.. like in roc, where sell catching is impossible as you get 100% and it takes you a maximum of 1sec to bank it afterwords.. where's the fun in that.. you need the frustration of the captcha.. :)

I think it was age 6 when the captchas were last changed and they have long since been cracked. Although they can be annoying and do slow the game down IMO they are not very important realy and as pint said the captchas make sell offs much more exiting!

i think perhaps there are certain times when a captcha is not necessary like when you spy or attack, yes when you are selling weapons u should have a captcha and when buyin weapons but somethin like attack and spy who needs a captcha?

Well, taking out the capchas would make it so that a script noob (not even a kiddy) would be able to set up a macro and go sleep.

I dont see anyone ever saying taking out the captchas.. the idea posted by Eddy was to replace it with a single number like roc has... l2read

Nah I for some reason think KoC differentiates itself due to its captcha's, it generally gives more "challenge" to the whole gameplay (even when reconning, cause by the time you reconned someone's DA, the gold may be already gone, or by the time you typed in the captcha's on the attack page, mistyped, pressed on the attack button in a hurry, the gold is already gone, you become frustrated, the other side gets frustrated, he sabbs you, you sabb him, he chains you, your chain chains him, another war, etc. :P).

Replacing captcha's by numbers would be like RoC, and I very much dislike the numbers in RoC cause its gameplay is like, just pressing on some buttons, if you know what I mean ... :P

kills the whole sell catching experience, takes away the excitement of trying to beat the spender or the guy who is meant to get the sell.

KoC = Captchas, a big portion of the time spent playing the game your filling them out, it wouldn't be the same with out them. If you want 1 click captchas go play RoC.

I like the captchas better in RoC but still prefer KoC
