For the past 2 weeks, these two bot accounts have been advertising their cheating software 24 hours at custom lobby. Everyday they advertise different cheating software features at custom lobby and invite people to join QQ 群 (a chinese social site similar to discord or AOL messenger) to purchase the software.
Everyday they advertise different features at custom lobby and if one is to join their QQ groupchat. One will be instantly spam with hundred of adverts messages (mainly pornographic sites and taobao site).
Please take action by introducing auto disconnect for account afk at custom lobby more than 1 hour.
Seem like their custom lobby title is now worded in a way to stay on top on the custom lobby list.
This particular account has recently created a new Q social site and resorted to using traditional chinese language in the custom lobby title to avoid association with the other cheat tool advertiser when both accounts clearly belong to same individual.
Also before the mass ban of QQ users from foreign IP from the cheat tool Q group (new IP display feature implemented by the Q social site), I happen to read their discussion threads on how the tool developers are planning to add ip masking and MAC address hiding feature for paid users.
Not sure how they plan to implement it since I am not good in computer coding stuffs.
Anyway thanks again for new patch update.
EDIT: it appear that the account has gone offline after I post this. Thanks for the quick action
EDIT#2: Nvm the account is up again.
Recently the cheat tool advertising at custom game lobby has gone rampant and out of control.
Not to mention some of them are malicious are not even cheat tool related to aoe4.
On weekdays, 6-10 custom lobbies advertising the cheat tool.
On weekdays, 15+ custom lobbies advertising the cheat tool.
From what I observe, their pattern of advertising are as follow:
a) 2 custom lobbies advertising Paid Version which include “nuke/ddos mode”, “key log”… etc
b) 6+ custom lobbies advertising Free Version which include
