    Banned for Botting

    Hey, I know these threads are repetitive - but I was just banned for botting and I lost a 4 year old account. I purchased Aeolus ~2 days ago. I lost a shit ton of money, but idc - I can easily get it back. I just wanted to put this thread here. I know you guys are looking into Aeolus, I just wanted to notify you - this thread isn't meant to criticize Bot-supply or anything of that nature - just to raise awareness. Going to run through this Untaint process soon and see if it works.

    Did you use any other bots? A sidekick bot or anything? I looked and used Aeolus for days and none of the accounts I tested on were banned. That's not saying it isn't the cause, maybe I was just lucky.

    Yes, I just Poseidon. The last bot I used was Poseidon - I babysit my bots frequently - and I talk a lot too. Maybe because I socialized so much they found me suspicious?

    I botted with Aeolus for quite some time and then stopped.

    I know I accept that risk when I bot I can get banned, I just want to assist you guys as much as possible. I am guessing the bot which caused me to be banned was Aeolus - Poseidon has been one of my most reliable bots and I've had in for quite some time. I just recently started using Aeolus and I was banned, after reading the threads about people getting banned I knew I was accepting that risk and quite frankly it didn't surprise me I was banned.

    What is interesting is the pirate I held Ultimate Bilge on for so long and kept that Ultimate status for a long time no longer has it and dropped to Legendary when I did /w on that ocean. The untainting process just worked, and it appears my Pirate dropped from his Ultimate Status to Legendary - this likely has nothing to do with me being banned but it was something I observed...

    Unrelated Question: When you untaint your Puzzle Pirates and say I don't use a VPN or anything to erase my computer's identity, is there a possibility OOO can find me evading?

    Aeolus uses straightlines, that troubles me.

    I did notice that at first, I know Bot-Supply is testing it. There is a possibility that someone reported me for botting but I find that highly unlikely considering I was very active, speaking, not going active and being friendly and not setting off any red flags.

    You don't necessarily need to use a VPN, just get your IP address changed

    You may also want to use Technitium mac address changer

    I'll just use a VPN - I really don't feel like shutting off my router/modem for 10 hours just to have it changed. I might download the Mac Address Changer though.
