As we all know the monopolization of monsters in this game (Final Fantasy XI) is an annoyance and something that I understand is one of the things the development team is trying to help prevent. Currently there are certain monsters in this game which will only spawn once a day, people do not wish to fight these monsters to obtain large amounts of game currency but to acquire items which can only be obtained by defeating these monsters. Not only do these monsters only spawn once a day but there is a three hour window in which they may spawn, currently the standard method is to take as many people as possible to the area around the time the monster is due to spawn and hope to provoke it before any other linkshell. This leads to the use of third party programs in order to gain an upper hand over other people in the area something which I know Square Enix is against and after the following conversation I had with one of your GM staff I am in the understanding that it is something you are unable to detect;
Marath > so unless the 3rd party program is in use when the GM investigates there is no way to catch them
GM Kazrift > This limitation exists for programs that spam provoke, chii blast, etc.. And yes, unless it is in use there is no way to catch them.
During this conversation the GM Kazrift explained that unless a GM is present when these types of programs are in use they are not able to be detected using the tools that GMs currently have available to them. This petition is not aimed at making it harder to pull monsters or changing any ping delays that exist in this game but to change the way in which these monsters spawn.
