Appearing to be the focus in MapleStory M

  • Slow down bot creation with phone verification.Bots, and individuals taking advantage of occasions. Bots are especially problematic since they also make the most of events by stocking up on mesos to market for money. Before NexonNA can begin to actually tackle the problems in this Maplestory M Meso, they need a means to attack the bot problem in this game first.

    Once they can prevent the robots they could begin to address problems such as:maplestory2 mesos inflation,Event manipulation,access to items like CSS, master/meister cubes, protection/safety scrolls etc.. .Devote longer GM time to quitting other illegal activities like selling mesos/nx for cash.

    Simply speaking, if they could significantly hamper the creation of new bot accounts then they can devote much more of their time to really working on problems that confront this game. Right now, the only thing stopping bots from producing a new account is getting either a new IP address or a brand new email (depending on the type of ban). And those are trivial to get around.

    However, phone verification is a lot harder to get around. It can be as straightforward as responding to a text message, or receiving a telephone call and moving through an automated system (eg. "Punch in your pic to verify that you are the person who made this account.") , so that nobody is excluded if they do not buy Maple M Mesos have a cellphone.

    They also must tie each telephone number to a particular account. This way, once a bot account is banned, it will require a new telephone number to generate a new account. Phone numbers, while plentiful, are far far less abundant than ip addresses are.
