Ban based on IP?
Hi!

As you can see, I am a new user. So my question might be noob... Smile

I am not talking about banning an IP from the server, but banning an account because a bot connected from that IP.

From what I understand, they ban you based on your character's actions. Would that mean that if I use the program on my second L2 account but not on my main account, I can't get my main account banned? Even if they are both running on the same computer at the same time?

Oh, and I am talking about retail NCSoft-West servers.

I did try to find the answer in other threads but I did not find it.

Thanks! Smile

And sorry if that information was already provided in another thread. Undecided

When ncsoft bans one char they usually aren't smart enough to check the IP for others...

there are many stories where buffer+main were botting on swamp and only main got banned. buffer not. when on same pc.... etc

RE: Ban based on IP?
I am pretty sure they are banning whole accounts. I just wonder if they would ban an account because it is running on the same time/PC/IP as the botting one.

I just don't want to lose my main.

From the few answers I got so far, I guess it is "kinda safe" Smile (we never know with NCsoft!)

yes, you will lose all characters on your account, becouse they ban account, not a single char.
