    if you need an explanation on how to google a macro program for your platform... then i doubt you could even run the thing anyways, so don't worry about it
    As I witness the death of innocence... A predator feeding on its creation.
    Through the fallout of this hallucination, I walked into darkness.
    I must not surrender my god to anyone, or this body will become carrion.
    One step closer to my fate. One step closer to my grave.

    Using bot is definitely cheating, as a prolific farmer of XP's I feel cheated of all the hours I have put in manually doing 9.3. As comprise I am going to pull my old exercise bike out of storage and hook that up that way I feel I'll still be operating ethically and getting fit to boot.

    Tell yourself what you need in order to sleep at night, but I know what you are.

    We need about 1million xp to upgrade a weapon from level 15 to level 18, so no i don't think xp bot is a cheat. It's the only method to survive in this game without become a walker. And we must survive, we must stay human!!!! ✌

    It's only a game for god sake! Do you have too much time?? Feel free and tap the screen 5hrs constantly. Good luck with it.
    In every game I'm trying to find a way to help myself save some time...
    That's the way it is. Deal with it.

    It's cheating in this or any other game. Many ppl here can spend some money on a game, but instead they are looking for a way to avoid it. But the actual problem start with bot collecting xp while they sleep, c mon. Also who enjoys farming deadly mission over and over again for hours daily? I guess no one. Everyone would like to use the free time more productive, with their friends and family or doing something else. Later on, you start the game and you have full xp, nice! Not that upgrading weapons already takes hours/days, sigh.

    If you think that collecting XP is the way to avoid payment option then good luck with your thinking ;)
    There is no way to avoid all of limitations of this game by gaining xp. Is just a drop in the ocean...
    What for XP if there is nothing worth to upgrade or no legendary survivor??

    If said person manages through some miracle to set up said bot on their lil iPad mini, said person may have found that said bot only runs for an hour at a time so sleeping through it is not really an option....said person may run said bot next to them so they have hands free to work and earn $ to spend on said game...said person may also be hopeless at playing said game no matter how many said flipping advantages are thrown their way, rendering said person no threat to other said persons....so said person may just stick up the proverbial said finger to all the said whining babies ,,!,, xo

    I said that real problem about bot starts when a person can (for example) sleep and over night gain xp without doing a thing. Those who play fair needs a lot time to earn that same amount of xp. I would also rather do something else than play daily for hours just so i can upgrade one weapon at the end of the week. In-game paying is an option and shouldn't even be mention here. We all have life and are occupied by numerous things. That's just wrong, even for a single player game. Having guilds, pvp, outpost in NML makes it even worse. The game wasn't meant to be played like that. Our playing time should be recognised and valued. The bot thing just make it pointless and beside we can all feel like idiots who play fair game. What's next... bot which gather tomatoes, radios, gold. Go on, it's your choice but don't try to defend something which is obviously wrong. Result of the poll also reflect that pretty much. This bot is like an exploit, you will either use it or not but in the end we all know that fake noumbers don't mean a thing. Meh, i am done with this topic. Like anything will change, smh :smile:

    1) I didn't vote one way or the other.

    b) @Necroboogie I'm not an attorney either, but I'm married to a very good one. You'd have a good chance of arguing that case on either side.

    iii) It really doesn't matter what any of us thinks. It only matters what NG thinks. If they see it as a problem, they could wipe your account leaving you with little recourse.

    ₩) There is a risk with choosing to use it. Whether now or in the future, you risk losing all your progress should they deem it unlawful.

    Zed) The dumbest thing about this all is openly admitting you are using it on their public board.

    So, whether the risk is high or low, now or in the future, you've put yourself out there. The only thing left is to get NG'S stance on the matter. But you will have an attorney. @Necroboogie has offered their services. Of course you must also be willing to travel to Helsinki.

    @Teeceezy Does NG care one way or the other on the use of bots to farm xp?

    This is cheating, yes. We could build logic to detect it, however it wouldn't be trivial. We'll take your thoughts in to consideration while we look into it.
