Anti-bot measure: Captcha

By [Flatops] - ANKAMA - March 22, 2017, 17:00:00

We've announced a few days ago that fighting bots is one of our top priorities at the moment. Today, we present to you another solution that will come into play tomorrow: the Captcha.

What's a Captcha?


Captcha is the acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart". This is a program to curb spam and automated data extracation from websites... or on DOFUS Touch!
 

How will this happen on DOFUS Touch?


The deployment of the Captcha will be spread over several updates, to ensure that everything is functioning properly. This is a mechanic that is complicated to test in real conditions, which is why we are counting on you to make us a maximum of relevant returns!

First step of CAPTCHA
Second step of CAPTCHA

Will it block real players?


The probability to trigger a Captcha during its first deployment is very low. And even if that was the case, its resolution by a human being does not require more than 20 seconds. After all, the goal remains to hinder bots and not players! It is good to know that a Captcha can't be triggered during combat.

For security reasons, we will be vague on the subject so as not to disclose too much information to shady people. The Captcha system will be improved as updates are made to adapt this new feature to DOFUS Touch and always with the aim of leaving less and less relief to the bots!

What can I say, it looks like a good idea, although I hope we won't have to deal with tons of these captcha, because they can be very annoying at certain point.

How frequent will this captcha be? I understand that you need to stop bots and stuff, but its hard enough to play the game on a phone as it is. I'm going to be really put off if it's popping up every 20 minutes to annoy me.

pero eso no los detendra, estos tipos abren lindo no emu a 15 cuentas abriendo el programa 4 vese y luego abren otro emulador que simula ser un humano apretando infinitamente el pozo, mientras el tipo este esta mirando la pantalla pendiente de este captcha para darle a aseptar y seguir en lo suyode robar agua, lo que podran aser seria poner un limite "diario" de cubos de agua de pozo por pj. Ej. por cada pj solo podrias sacar unos 50 o 100 maximo de agua de pozo
