Gateway for Neverwinter is being put to rest. An announcement posted by Arc Games revealed that the decision to put an end to the application due to "aggressive botting activities" and went on to state that the work necessary to combat the bots took away from resources that could be used to create content.

Players who participated in Gateway and Sword Coast Adventures will be compensated. In the build being released next week, the developers who used Gateway will recieve a Mini apparatus of Gond companion. The companion will be deposited in the players' mailboxes at release.

Gee..botting on the web-version of their crafting system..a system that took abnormally exorbitant amounts of time to achieve anything with. I WONDER WHY THERE WERE BOTS HURRRRR.

I did lots of searching and still have no idea what gateway is and I'm no fan of neverwinter but I'm glad the top people who run neverwinter are smart enough to know when to call it quits on something.
