    Default Ubisoft's "solution" to spammers

    I tried to log on an account without a GrowID and I noticed that I was receiving the "Are you a robot" pop-ups constantly. Like actually constantly. The game becomes near unplayable. One or more in less than a minute. The thing is that they make you leave the world you're in when it pops up. If those would have existed back when I started I would have 100% quit because it is just so unbelieveably annoying.

    That's really annoying, they should balance it

    I totally feel this. I was copying a song for my world and it was insanely complicated so for around 3 days I had to solve like one hundred math problems or something it was absurd. Not to mention the fact that I kept constantly disconnecting for no reason. When I was playing on my regular account on my phone it was fine but on my laptop my alt kept disconnecting every 5 minutes or less. That makes it pretty damn hard to copy a song

    This doesn’t even solve spammers because all the spammers i see keep on spamming no matter the level. Also I have like a 1st grader’s math brain so I get like half of them wrong on my alternate account.

    I only get them when I log in on an old non-growid account (Once) and after that if I stay afk on them for more than a minute or two. On new accounts I don't get them at all (When I tested the new tutorial I made a couple new accounts). I feel it's quite balanced.

    this is actually absurd, me and my friend tried to start over for fun with new accounts, we realized that its not Growtopia anymore but some low quality math game. Ubisoft's solution is as lazy as it can get "just spam new accounts with random math problems" like this solution would be reasonable if it was 1-2 days per day or when the system detects an unusual pattern of activity/spamming etc. but this is actually absurd, how can Ubisoft change start etc and invest in a new tutorial while giving new players such a painful experience? the math questions are not even simple like 10+10 or something, they have random numbers like 193+129 or something which just makes it more difficult. it almost seemed like they put in this feature to stop the game from taking in new players. I still used that ult acc for a little bit, it seems that not even levelling up could stop it. I have played gt for over 6 years now and tbh im disappointed that Ubisoft, with all its resources did not think for a second about how annoying and not player friendly a feature like this was going to be. when I noticed it I was going to post a thread on forums complaining about it but then I realized that they probably will just ignore it. I care about the success of this game and Ubisoft should fix things like this before adding features such as referrals.

    Flashbacks to when I used my alt to not lose my INFINITELOOP progress on my main. Sure, it's annoying, but it's not like the questions are hard anyways. I still hate it though.

    Spammers are now smarter than before. They bought level 20 accounts just for spamming. I've seen many broadcasts about people buying level 20 accs. Nowadays, spammers are level 20+.



    Yes, level 20+ accs doesn't give you a human verification anymore ( I have a level 20+ alt acc and I'm not getting any human verification )


    Please correct me if I'm wrong
    Oof

    This is true. They should just allot manpower to exterminate spammers in famous buy+ worlds everyday just as they nuke casino worlds.
