I know people will use it because it “makes their lives easier”, but to me that would ruin the entire point of playing the game, and I do hope they do ban an entire alliance for doing what it is not allowed in the first place. Start with the account as a warning, if they continue to break the rule, just ban the players. Simple. Bad habits will only sprout doom and using AI will make the players loose interest to the point of not bothering to log in again.
I am one that would certainly not touch that. Either I play and work for what I deserve or don’t play and just use my time in another game. One of the key motivations I have is to fill up my wallet, but as I go on I keep spending it because I prefer to be empty handed and work for it rather than having my pockets full and wonder why I am still doing what I do for even more money. Yes I could go and blow up some ships, but I am not 100% into PvP, I am ok loosing some, but its not something I go do on a daily basis.
This is why the world population is getting dumber and dumber, because we rely too much on AI to do things for us, if anything just the main fact we can have as Many Omega accounts with no limit to multibox miners and other things is already dreadful, because those who know about how bad multiboxing is in several aspects of the game we all know that those 20k players online in reality is at least 2-5k less real players. Yes, multiboxing is nice, I do it too, but I only got 3 accounts, that’s about it and they all got different roles, people will get 8-10 to suicide gank or more to go ice mining the very instant the servers are back up from maintenance.
For once I want to see actual mining corps that look for people to do some active mining, looking for people to be with in Teamspeak or some similar thing to talk with one another so they don’t get bored of the mining and have people guard them rather than multiboxers in a NPC corp sitting cloaked in several systems if they mine in low or null so that the multiboxing miners can just warp to safety.
