Have the devs said anything in regards to RMT prevention and bot suppression?

(please remember the NDA when responding)

As far as I know all they've said is there will be things in place to prevent botting and the sale of ingame currency for RL money. They havent said what they will be or how they will work, I just hope it isnt like how I've heard Aion was at start and just a complete spamfest. :(

They have mentioned a couple things in interviews, one being a built in spam filter at launch. They have also stated they will have behind the scene tools to track gold movement between characters so that they can monitor where gold is going and see what is being exchanged for it.

Hopefully their spam filter will be more efficient than the one EQ2 uses, perhaps they will even make it so after X number of spams the player is kicked/temp banned. I know I can get up to 15 tells in an hour in Eq2 and the next day the same spammer sends me more. >.<

Gold tracking should be interesting, again hopefully it's more effective than EQ2.

I really do hope they stay on top of the gold selling and botting. Those are two things i know are around in MMOs but i hate seeing them.

the only question I have is what about people just giving gold to friends who role new characters.
Because if there is nothing really traded for a mass amount of gold it could look like gold farming and RL money sale

I wouldn't worry about it.

Its pretty obvious what a gold bot looks like, and I assume it would be on a case by case basis, not an automatic system. If I had to guess, at worst it would flag your account, then take a look and disregard it.

Another thing to mention is ZAM will never support Botting or RMT, if your found doing it in zam forums & channels expect the giant ZAM gods thumb squashing you really flat.

If they have 24 hour customer support they'll be golden. Aion is a terrible example of RMT handling because NCsoft just didn't care. As an oceanic player I had something like an hour window to actually put a ticket in or nothing got reported.

Fat lot of good tickets do when they don't even have anybody to read them. This looks like too large of a budget game for them to slack off on customer support so I'm not too worried.

Well I hope they can control it. RMT can be game breaking for me, not just the spam, but the effects it has on the economy can ruin a game.

Remember, Scott Hartsman is in charge. Everquest 2 was his last game and the economy has been solid for 6 years now, never melting down or overinflating. He knows what he is doing.

I hate goldselling and spamming; I guess I tolerate it in a f2p game, but I'm hoping not to see it in Rift. Hopefully they'll nip it in the bud.

I saw the same problems with FFXIV the past couple months. You can't /petition to report a botter, you've got to go to some website, navigate through Square Enixs' back asswards account/support website and shoot an email off to the ether. Botters were in the same spots all day, every day for over a month (I assume they're still there, I quit playing) and nobody seemed to care.

As long as they don't implement some stupid counterproductive anti-botting measures, such as server side queries for every client action, whatever they do is fine with me. There will always be botters and farmers. Just report them and keep enjoying the game.

Scott Hartsman is the main reason I'm following rift, he was the best SR.Producer EQ2 ever had, he actually knew how the game worked and helped the devs work on it. As opposed to the current who has no idea how anything works :(
