Bots are dead edition

Tibia is a MMORPG from 1997.

We play on Secura which is an european server, but americans don't need to fret - you can just use a tunneling program to make it playable.
Just write your name and we'll invite you to the Yotsubas guild.

I've always liked the mechanics of early MMORPGs, but never the social element. If only there were a way to play offline. I'm aware some of these games borrow inspiration from Ultima, but I can't say I care for Ultima's setting or quality of writing.

Is that game still worth playing anymore?

How would you improve it?
>>
The game changed a lot in the past two years that it's definitely worthwhile to check out again.

Bots are almost nonexistent thanks to the new anti cheating tool used by CIP meaning a LOT of hunting places to choose from.

They revamped the old client and introduced a shit ton of new tools such as a hotbar to quickly access your skills or items, Hunting Analytics which shows stuff like (xp/hr, supplies used, profit made, monsters killed, loot picked up etc) as well as some kind of enchantment system in which you can put enchants on your weapons or armor in imbuement slots like crit, leech, damage conversion and so on.

Oh and one of my favorite changes is that you can have the toggleable option of chat on/off while hunting and have specific hotkeys for each mode while using WASD for movement.

Hello Yotsubas, how are you guys doing? I've been long absent. Everyone still playing on Secura?

>>4411263
Why not the social element? Back then this game was serious business for me and the kids in my class. Everybody played it, it was like IRC with a built-in game to play.
>>
>>4411120
>BattlEye integration

So I have to install a kernel mode driver in order to prove to Cip I'm not a cheater now? These people smoking crack or what? That's a massive security hole. Who the fuck knows what this driver does?

If they were smart, they'd be analyzing network traffic as described in "Identifying MMORPG Bots: A Traffic Analysis Approach". You can also statistically analyze legal player behavior, like hours played and many other variables, and compare to bots and other cheaters like account sharers. I'm sure you'd be able to find huge discrepancies. You can devise criteria that would ban with 0% false positives, enabling you to prove to your customers that they weren't banned incorrectly. Even if you can't ban someone due to false negatives, you'd still be essentially constraining them to legal player behavior.

>killed most if not all bots

Hilarious.

It's a client-side protection that just scans the system looking for cheats like an anti-virus. Tibia already has an open client and back in the Flash Client days people decompiled the game's entire netcode. It should be trivial for botters to make a custom client that reports "everything is OK nothing to see here" to the anti-cheat servers.

It may have defeated all _current_ bots but if bots don't adapt to this it will be evidence that game the game is indeed dead since there's no monetary profit in botting it.
>>
>>4415627
Yeah everyone has known battleye is borderline malware bullshit for a while. I guess no one cares anymore. Nothing much we can do about it. It's in a lot of games now.
If I recall correctly the people who operate the it's servers can execute code on your computer if they want. Not sure if they can anymore but I remember a big scare happening a while ago about that.

This is the kind of bullshit that makes cheaters and pirates feel righteous. They're actually playing a _better version_ of the game that doesn't have this retarded rootkit shit forced on them.

>Nothing much we can do about it

Tibia has the privilege of having an open client. IIRC people made it to play on open servers that run older Tibia versions, but if people were to update it there's no reason it can't work with the current official game servers.

>If I recall correctly the people who operate the it's servers can execute code on your computer if they want

Sure. It's actually easy to do and is a widely used technique in virtual machines in order to JIT compile code. This code can do anything you can do: read/write files, open network connections, the works.

The profoundly idiotic thing here is the fact this fucking thing is apparently running in kernel mode. So not only can it execute code coming from the network, it does so with full system privileges. Even more privileges than if you ran a program as administrator.

I thought about virtualizing the game but then I realized they might interpret my use of a virtual machine as an attempt to debug their software and bypass it and ban my level 100 character account.

You just never know what kind of retarded shit these people will do next and when they fuck you they brand you as a cheater forever. Even if you're right every other player will dismiss your complaints as the baseless cries of a caught cheater because they're oblivious to the idea of a false positive.

There's the story of an anticheat program that banned people whose memory contained a certain text. You could cause people to be banned by simply messaging them the name of a hack. You just never know when it comes to these people.

Kentaro hasn't really been on for years now, unfortunately.
The active players on Secura are usually Fuuz, Dogon, Yuna, Peacedeath, Exemplary Citizen, Ludolog and some other nigs

It was and still is one of the harshest MMORPGs in existence. Back then you dropped your full equipment when you died, in addition to the full death penalty. Game was dangerous, to this day I'm afraid of dying, feels like a punch to the gut.

>>4416664
Aw man I'm not sure I want to start playing this again just to grind levels. In the early days of Yotsubas we explored the shit out of the map, it was like we were creating actual RPG stories for the characters. That dude is a legend... Knew everything about old school tibia, showed people a forgotten chest in some forgotten hole that gave us unstacked runes, taught us how to hunt dragons and dragon lords, saved my ass countless times, blocked behemoths with a fucking druid. Probably everyone who's ever hung out with him has their own stories to tell... That's how this game was meant to be...

How can it possibly be fun without this guy
I dunno why he left but I sincerely hope he's OK and doing well in life

I think most major bot operators are dead, so the majority of them are gone, for now.

Who's the real rude boy here? If he's so polite, why doesn't he realize that he's had his turn already, get the fuck out and leave the spawn to me? He can virtue signal all the way back to depot.

It's either that or sharing the spawn with me. I for one don't really mind the company. Best part about no-pvp is you can just do what you want without taking shit from no one.

>>4423104
I used to play runescape back then as well because a couple of friends played it. Pretty cool game too. Why do you people gotta turn it into a mmorpg war though? People can like and play both.
>>
>>4424697
What the fuck is that reasoning? So basically you want anyone who has hunted for more than 3 seconds in a spawn to be "generous" and give it to you? By that same logic you should give up your spawn to anyone that enters it.
Show some respect and don't be a fucking tumour. If everyone did as you this game would be unplayable
>>
>>4424737
im not that guy, but if you dont even do whatever the fuck you want on a non pvp server you are the definition of a cuck
>>
>>4424737
I don't want anything and don't expect anything. Anyone can make up a dozen reasons why they're polite and virtuous because they sacrificed themselves for the sake of others. That's retarded. If anyone's rude here it's the territorial children who call guilds upon you if you so much as step on his turf. I started no-PvP precisely to avoid those power tripping retards because nobody deserves to get caught up in an african tribe war.

Nobody cares about some guy's hurt feelings. If he doesn't like it, he can pack up and get the fuck out.

I do not see any advantages in starting on new optional-PvP world, if those worlds do not explode in population then it will suck because events like lightbringer will be very likely to fail. Also since transfers will be most likely possible in the future this means people who botted in the past and got shitload of money and some rares can still come here.

That or farming rope belts. They can be farmed in yala foreign quarters from nomads or you can try yala cult cave. At your level nothing beats protective charms/rope belts in terms of profit. I'd suggest rope belts because after farming both for a while I can say that you will farm rope belts faster thus getting more profit.

My armor adds to 40, if I switched to Zaoan Helmet, it would add to 39, effectively 38. At my level (29), I'm not fighting monsters with high enough damage for the +5% physical resist to matter yet.

I remember when they added the orc hunting spot north of thais, and you could lure berserkers down to the town.

It was hilarious, they eventualy plugged it with a ramp.

Even better, you used to be able to lure giant spiders all the way to thais.

Good times

Luring/roping monsters was pretty fun. There was also a time where "overspawning" could happen if the monsters moved from their spawn spot sqm but were not killed.

Used to train back at the small minotaur place in Kazordoon on my knight. I would rope up bunch a minos to the small isle where I would fish and train, but that surface area was also on the same level as the tower there. So the minotaur archers on the first level of the tower would constantly move during the day it would get so filled with archers that sometimes people died there

This was the spot. Was a different knight though so it might have been fixed by the time this shot was taken.

This new quickloot system seems like a huge improvement.

So how does it work exactly, I add certain backpacks to certain categories? (gold, creature products), does it then also autofill backpacks within that backpack once it's full, or do I need to add all of them seperately?

And then I just rightclick creatures and it loots them?

You guys still do teamhunts?

I remember a few years ago we went to Drefia with Kentaro, Dogon and Videras and some other dudes to get the hand mount.

It was hilarious, I remember Videras dying as usual, and us in general just having a big laugh.

Those were some of the most fun things I did in Tibia.

You used to be able to bring the GS from PoH to Carlin with all the noobs. You also could UH the monsters in non-PVP servers.

They already did add a few and they can only be player transferred between each other. Most here are still using Secura, though.
>>
>>4454320
there were so many things you could do to safely train in old tibia. i always used to find these dead end caves to block off with barrels and shit and then mc a low level mage to train on.
my best memory of this was when i discovered that if you climbed onto quentins temple in thais and blocked it off with chests, and then also blocked the roof on the right of the temple, literally nobody but cip members could reach you (chests prevented levitating up, and gms couldnt reach you because nobody could actually see you on screen, so nobody knew your name).
me and a buddy trained two knights to 80+ club fighting over a few weeks up there, then one day when we went down to gather more food, a cip member actually teleported up on the roof and banned the mages that were standing there.
the next day two angel statues had been added on the small roof in the back of quentins temple, forever blocking access to the roof.
it was fun while it lasted
>>
>>4455836
Ooooh so that's why those angel statues are there. Huh.
>>
>>4455869
i like to think they represent the two mages that took the fall

Nah. I was one of those straight edge pick your own spears for hours while training fags and then accidentally fall asleep during an all nighter.

So training was always a more social event and you would just sit on some beach for hours on end watching tv.

Hunting cheaters was a great way to pass some time though. Free fish on half the beaches too. Blocking certain roofs or cliffs while escaping on lowbie alt pk characters we did plenty though.

Played with you guys for a couple weeks I think. Managed to get a level 60. Should I play again?
>>
>>4458361
i did a lot of manual social training as well, but it was kinda fun figuring out how to break the game and exploit things such as blocking off roofs and stuff. this was before botting became the norm as well, so it didnt really feel like it was hurting the game.
>killing cheaters
these guys were not really cheaters, but i remember i had this 50ish ED and came across a training party in cormaya, which i quickly killed.
those idiots had put all their gear in their backpacks and there were so many k-pieces i couldnt carry all of it.

which reminds me of another time, when the UH block exploit was still in the game.
as anyone who played tibia before it went to shit should know, you could lure people into one-way holes so they got stacked ontop of eachother, making all but the top player unable to heal.
there is also this broken one-way hole by the kazordoon lake, which you cannot even rope people up from.
we were pking on some br infested server and managed to attract the attention of the top guild, which contained the highest level mage in the game at the time (150ish MS i believe?), and got her, and the rest of those idiots stacked in this broken hole,
those guys dropped so many DSMs we had to leave crown pieces behind.
they believed they were safe as long as they left someone above to rope them back up, but their lacking knowledge of the game got them all killed
great fun

Crazy times when you combine that with the fact boat/carpet travel spots were not protection zones back in the day. Stack up bunch of barrels and hide them under combo of coins and bolts. Anyone could get killed. Later spiritually replaced with mage bombs I guess.

this might be wrong, but i have a feeling that ranged mobs used to be waay more broken and spammy, with retardedly long off screen range. this was stealth patched at some point
>>
>>4474572
Hunters seem to either do 0 damage or fucking 100 damage. If you were a low level mage you could get off screened by one very easily. Even worse if there's 2 at once.
>>
>>4474572
Ranged attacks/spells on mobs had no cooldown, instead they just had a random chance to fire like every portion of a second. I've seen stuff like hunter shooting twice in less than a second or a dragon doing f-wave and two gfb almost at the same time. Now it's still kinda like that (ranged mobs don't attack every 2 sec) but they at least added those 2 secs of minimum cd before they will roll for another attack
>>
>>4475609
Yeah, back then combo had a somewhat different meaning thanks to this broken mechanic
>>
>>4475609
>>4475612
should be noted that the 2s minimum cd is for each of the monster abilities he used and different abilities on mobs can go off at the same time
>>
>>4469206
Yes it matters, since all the good hunt spots were taken 24/7. The market was flooded with cheap items and gold leading to inflation. And people that used bots to reach level 800 got banned. So basically yes it matters alot

Try to split that up with 400+ higher level players. Granted it was still an age where there had to be some downtime between hunts if you weren't super lucky, rich or otherwise supplied.

Might have missed a spot, but kinda included some solo ones too.


From what I gather the game is currently lacking in viable team hunting spots for 200-600? And old mainland is really getting outdated

Did tibia majorly change the way it looks and plays at some point? I remember playing in the late 90s or early 2000s. I went to play it again maybe 10 years ago or so and the graphics looked entirely different, to the point it seemed like it wasn't the same game I played before.

I remember killing rats in a sewer to try to get gold from them, eventually getting to the point where I could fight wolves with others. When I went back, the whole starting area was different.

Any ideas?
