[EDITED] Suggestion for admins ~ Add CAPTCHA when joining a fight.

Day 1,480, 23:36 Published in China China by curcubitator
Last week clearly showed that on the battlefields strange things appear. I'm not going to go into this discussion, it is not the point of the article.

My point is a suggestion for admin to add CAPTCHA every time someone joins a FIGHT. Take a minute to read and analyze before agreeing or not.


When pressing the FIGHT button:



CAPTCHA appears:



And if completed correctly then you can go and fight:



This will allow real people to fight on the battlefield. Few problems arise from this.

1. BH hunting will be a nightmare.
2. Watching multiple fights and deciding priorities really fast will be impossible.

For that you can simply add a WATCH button like showed bellow:



Pressing this button will take you to the battlefield without completing CAPTCHA, but the fight button will be disabled. (You can still watch the fight, see battle statistics and decide priorities)



Long story short, when going in to fight complete CAPTCHA, when just watching no CAPTCHA required. I submitted a ticket with this suggestion.


Shout it if you agree !

Allow real people to play and enjoy the game

LATER EDIT:

Shouting full article link won't work - « Link removed. Exploit detected. »
Shout the short version above.

This is an idea, and as all ideas can be improved. Thank you for shouting and voting.

LATER LATER EDIT:

Some people are saying that CAPTCHA is easy to surpass. Nevertheless the principle of the article stands. Divide joining a fight in Fight/Watch Mode (watch mode can be made lighter as someone said) and add a verification when going into Fight Mode that only real people can complete.

LATER LATER LATER EDIT:

One of the better alternatives for CAPTCHA showed bellow. There are solutions that only real people can complete. Add them to fight mode.


Thanks to Hawkward for this example.

If they make the CAPTCHA shorter it won't be a problem.. They should put it also when you click on the support button for a RW.

captcha are so irritating, if the admins add more, it will be just TOO much, the game will become even more irritating after such changes
I disagree

It would be great if captcha code should be competed when we log into the game, not just when we fight : )

stupid bots/scripts/multies will destroy the fun of real players.

i understand your view and i agree, but at the end, we will have to put captcha(s) everywhere (train/fight/message/buy/donate/login/vote) etc just to stop fake accounts or make their administration more difficult. but we will make our life in here more difficult and frustrating.
