We have discovered that couple users has been using "bots", or automated scripts/programs to play the game. We like to make it clear that the game is meant to be played by human only, and using any scripts or programs to play the game is strictly not allowed.

As mentioned on the Facebook discussion board, I would like to remind everyone that using auto scripts is against game rule #5 of ToS, violation of this rule will cause your account to be suspended.

We have been manually suspending characters once we detect script usage by reviewing server logs - so consider yourself lucky and warned if you are using scripts and have not been caught yet.

To streamline this in the future, we are also working on script detections programs to automatically ban offender's accounts - there will be no warning when this detection program is added and the punishment will be non-reversible.

Further Clarification:

Any program, scripts, or tools that automate human input is considered against the rules. Spreadsheets, calculators, wiki, and external solvers are fine as long as the final input into the game screen is done by human.

Automated inputs generates unfair speed advantages, and more often then not will cause alerts and errors in our server log, investigating these will cause distractions from active development.
