Hello Beta Players,

Today, we will enable the first step in our efforts to combat spam attacks ingame, our new 'anti-spam prevention' system. This system is directly in response to spam attacks of a specific type seen on some markets. This system isn't the end of the work we'll be doing to address this issue, and won't fix everything, but it isn't designed to.

The system works as follows:
  • A player tries to send 12 attacks from the same city within 60 seconds.
  • The first 11 attacks will be allowed, on the 12th attack, the player will be blocked from sending attacks for 2 hours.
  • The block will apply to attacks sent from all cities.
  • The block only occurs if the conditions above are met.
We're looking to see some feedback here on Beta before we enable the system for live worlds. It is however important to understand this system is really only designed to address specific tactics employed on some servers, and shouldn't really impact legitimate gameplay. However, we might find the system needs adjusting, so please let us know here in our feedback thread.
