Be lucky you weren't permanently banned, and may this serve as warning to anyone else that you won't get away with it.
It's unfair to everyone else to AFK bot and plenty of it has gone on.
Double Loot and and Double Credits also active during this time, after Halloween - donations will be completely closed off until closer to the end of the year. Please make this time of year a warm celebration and remembrance of Hunter.
Also please have Hunter's wife, Isa in your prayers (if you will) as she has a type 5 typhoon hitting the Phillipines very soon Hello EZ players!
The changes in this roll-out are massive, but I will keep details high level for now.
We haven't updated since January for various reasons, we don't normally wait more than 2-3 months.

It is the tail end of summer, where most emulator servers get slow as people finish up enjoying the summer doing other things.
In a few very short weeks it will be fall, and everyone will be getting the mad itch to play again! Double Loot will be on today Saturday (7/15/2017) until the 4AM reboot due to the server being in disarray from some bad code this morning.
117 Accounts and 303 characters are now suspended for a week that were associated with anyone that had been AFK botting.
Consider this an extremely FAIR warning - this offense has historically been bannable.
