Botting Situation Update

Taken from CEO and Co-founder Achilles' post on the forums here: http://www.blankmediagames.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=94733


As many of you know, over the last 2-3 months we have been under attack by a group of people who created bots to spam in Town of Salem games, stall lobbies, and attempt to brute force Town of Salem accounts as well as forum accounts.

Today we know who those people are. We have linked IPs from bot accounts to the players main accounts, and we have screenshots from the infamous Grenzeland discord server that was used to organize the attacks where the botters admit to what they are doing.

We will be banning these people from the game and from the forums. There are more people than the ones listed involved with Grenzeland but the major players are listed below.

Bluewave41 - The mastermind responsible for creating and distributing the bot program in Grenzeland as well as account hacking innocent ToS players.
Abizoey - Responsible for the Trashfire spam bots.
Grenzemauer - Creator of the Grenzeland discord server. Known moonman and admitted botter.
DionysiusTragos - Known botter.
Dopamine / Shakira123 - Known botter (ran the “AFK” bots).
WittyRecluse / Rekcah - Responsible for many bot accounts with random letters as names.
BlackLivesRegister - Responsible for the BlackLives and Tituba bots and AutoHotkey scripts.
Cleveland - Responsible for the Cleveland spam bots.

It may come as a shock to find out that some of these long standing members of the community, as well as two ex-Trial Judges, are actually the people behind the bots and hacking. We feel it is important to provide some proof that we are 100% certain who these people are. We will be posting many screenshots from the Grenzeland discord. We have many more screenshots that we will not be showing because we are protecting the identities of the person or persons who helped inform us.


Important information:
Cactus Princess = Bluewave41
Cactus Prince = Abizoey
Invictus = DionysiusTragos
#JUSTICE4PABLO = WittyRecluse = Rekcah

We have other screenshots of them targeting our Facebooks, LinkedIn and even my personal home address and mailing me inappropriate things. They also planned to file false reports to the Better Business Bureau in an attempt to tarnish our company name. We would include screenshots of those too, however, again, we want to protect the identity or identities of the source of this information. These people gathered together to attack us in anyway they could think of. It is clear they had no intention of trying to help improve the game but merely enjoyed causing havoc and destruction anyway they could. As a result, these people and any known aliases will be getting banned and permanently blacklisted from both the game and the forum.


There was also an incident purely on Discord in which a user “Roxy” aka “accountingsteve” orchestrated a raid against our community with known moonmen/botters towards a server that was geared towards Town of Salem’s Wiki. A post was was made on Reddit (linked below) where TurdPile said a couple times that the evidence would be made available. We are also including such evidence here, although the user is not technically a botter (that we know of), they were still banned for malicious intent to harm our community.

Original Reddit Post: https://www.reddit.com/r/TownofSalemgame/comments/9ul2n0/being_suspected_of_committing_an_offence_on/

TurdPile’s response #1 (will have to expand): https://www.reddit.com/r/TownofSalemgame/comments/9ul2n0/being_suspected_of_committing_an_offence_on/e954alr

We hope this brings an end to this incident and those involved will be held accountable.

Thank you to you all who are a part of this community and had to endure these problems. Thanks for staying, being patient, and understanding.

Mobile Patch 3.0.15

Hey Townies!

Today we are releasing a patch that will bring the Refer-A-Friend system changes and the new referral code systems to mobile along with some bug fixes.


Mobile Changes
Refer-A-Friend System

When a premium user reaches 10 games played they will receive 5 referral codes that they can give to their friends. These codes can be redeemed by a user's friends after they create their account, login, and click the play button. Users will also get 5 extra codes at 25 games played, 50 games played, 100 games played, and 250 games played. This means that a user can get up to 25 referral codes through the life of their account. To claim these codes click the button that looks like hands shaking on the left of the screen under the Shop button. Refer-A-Friend rewards have been bumped up to 1300 Town Points per player successfully referred from 100. We are also going to reward for every successful referral past 5 with 1300 Town Points. There was previously no reward for referrals past 5.

Trial Accounts

The pop-up that says you need to make a purchase has a text field to enter in Trial codes. After a player redeems a code their account is made into a Trial account. When a player redeems a code if they have not put a user as their referrer, or has put a user that didn't give them the redeem code the user that gave them the code will be marked as their referrer. Trial accounts can play 5 games and after that they will be locked out of playing until they make a purchase.

Be Aware!

If an account is banned during the Trial phase, the account that referred them will receive a suspension. Trial accounts that are only suspended will not punish the referring account. Note that accounts are only banned over being suspended when they are botting or spamming hate speech. Once the referred accounts becomes a premium account the referral user is no longer responsible for their accounts and will not be suspended if the referrer gets banned.

Mobile Ranked

We fixed many mobile issues that were causing users to disconnect, and we feel that mobile is stable enough to re-enable Ranked for mobile users.

Bug Fixes

Fixed some spelling issues for certain mobile feedback messages.
Fixed some issues causing mobile users to disconnect,
Fixed an issue that was causing some purchases to fail on mobile.
Fixed an issue related to wills after a Janitor cleaned a player.

Changes to All Platforms

Spam Filter Improvements

Several spam filter improvements have been added since the last patch. Check out Achilles' Dev Update post for more information. As we receive feedback we will continue to make improvements to this system to improve overall game quality.

About This Game

Purchase comes with the exclusive SteamBot3000 Character Skin with unique death animation, 2,000 Town Points ($8 Value) and you will earn double Merit Points forever!

Town of Salem is a fresh innovation on the classic party games Mafia and Werewolf. It is a game of murder, accusations, deceit and mob hysteria.

How To Play

The game ranges from 7 to 15 players. These players are randomly divided into alignments - Town, Mafia, Serial Killers, Arsonists and Neutrals. If you are a Town member (the good guys) you must track down the Mafia and other villains before they kill you. The catch? You don't know who is a Town member and who is a villain.

If you are an evil role, such as a Serial Killer, you secretly murder town members in the veil of night and try to avoid getting caught.

Roles

Town of Salem has 33 unique roles ensuring a different experience each time you play.

Before a game starts, players are put into a lobby where the host can select what roles will be in the game. Players are then assigned roles at random from the list of chosen roles. Players have an in-game role card that explains their role's abilities and alignments. For an in-depth look at the abilities of each role please visit: www.blankmediagames.com/roles

Game Phases

Night

The night phase is when most roles use their abilities. For example, Serial Killers stealthily murder people, Doctors heal people who are attacked, and Sheriffs interrogate people for suspicious activity.

Day

The day phase allows the Town members to discuss who they suspect of being an evil role. Once the voting phase starts a majority vote from the town will put someone on trial.

Defense

The defense phase is when you plead your innocence to the town. Have a convincing story or find yourself facing the gallows!

Judgement

During this phase the town will vote on the fate of the defendant. Players can vote guilty, innocent or abstain. If there are more guilty votes than innocent votes the defendant is sentenced to death by hanging!

Customization

Players are able to choose their own map (town setting), character, pet, lobby icon, death animation, house and a custom name. The other players in the game will see your selections. There are currently 10 maps, 29 characters, 20 pets, 5 death animations and 20 houses to choose from.

Achievements

There are currently over 220 unique achievements in the game. Earning achievements will grant various in-game items (however the items for donation rewards are exclusive to Kickstarter).
