    as most players noticed a lot bots in lowbie areas recently poped out. gm`s do ban them but in one bot place 2 comes back. this is due to too easy registration. any one who wants can register as much accounts as they want since e-mail creation is unlimited and there is even 10 min temp. e-mails.

    so, what i want to suggest is to use the system we already have- account confirm with phone number. for now this system is used only to improve account security. instead i suggest to make it must-to-use feature as you creating new account from now on(1 acc per phone number).

    i am sure by doing this step innova would make servers much more bot-clean, happy community, even more legit players coming to play here, gm`s work would not fade in few seconds after they ban bot account since boters would have to gain new phone numbers to confirm their account which would be a huge spike in their *****.

    please support this suggestion and make it come true.

    improvement of that idea:
    alllow unlimited accounts to be created with one telephone number but tie them together to be one responsibility. if one account tied to this telephone number is banned, all others on that number are banned together with it.

    this could allow individuals to create several accounts (as they may do now), but makes it a bad idea for botters to create multiple bots with the same number.

    this could work, then if someone bots on one of the account ... they can ban all accounts on same phonenumber (since ip/hwid can be easily changed).

    which 12+ year old (since game is 12+) doesn't have a cellphone, or doesn't have any parent/friends that have a cellphone? it's becoming more common to register accounts to a phone number, even facebook and youtube do this.
