Not to completely counter the premium block idea, but you do realise these bots generally have shop access right as they do sell some of their goods on the market to sell the meseta later, normally from stolen cards. So it's not like buying premium on stolen cards wouldn't be out the question for them. The general base issue is that as long as there's a main gathering point, it's going to be very easy for them to do their business. Which is sadly the lobbies. I do think new genesis with the more open looking maps may counter this in it's own way similar to how other MMO's have mitigated most of the problem by encouraging players to spread out.
But they have only a few premium accounts for selling.
The majority is just some generic f2p account to spam the Lobbys all day long.
They get banned and just do a new account with "fgdhgfdh" name and spam on.
Premium accounts wouldnt be renewed at the same number as it happens atm.
They would bite their own arse if their premium seller account gets banned every month.
Edit: and after all, if us,the players,wouldnt buy from them,the problem would soon be gone...thats the initial Problem of it all.
Yeah... the joys of impatience and people with money to burn on meseta directly. The same impatience that generally fuels game hacks. If there's chance to be lazy people will take it. Really does a number on the whole ordeal so really leaves you with cutting off the desire early or the visibility of it.
Either way. I do think providing a private venue which provides reason for players to avoid contact works, but at the same time there needs to be a way to encourage others to join through invitation, at least until we're more open world without putting it behind a paywall.
