Don’t know if it’s a reply here, about the idea of ​​the bot, the bot has increased significantly after the crystal transfer, obviously driven by revenue, my suggestion is to increase the cost of the bot and reduce his revenue:

  1. Increase the difficulty of sweeping, or even cancel sweeping, so synchronization can increase the recently discussed multi-account problem. Robots mainly make belts. Technically, can the sweeping function of canceling several stages be realized?
  2. Reduce the number of grinding crystals in the belt (this is the opinion of others), crystal grinding will be more extensive
  3. Prohibit the transfer of crystals, or issue an announcement for crystal transactions to explicitly prohibit them, which will greatly reduce the demand for abrasives and ensure that top players can normally sell their weapons, clothes, etc.
    Have more ideas, I will prompt to communicate
