Combat Macro are automated player characters run by Decal scripting programs that allow to engage in combat. Because of their ability to gain experience without a live player controlling them, combat macros are a controversial topic. There are two types of combat macros:
- Attended Combat Macro or ACM is a character running a combat macro program while the player is at the keyboard, ready to respond to a turbine representative. This type of combat macro is allowed.
- Unattended Combat Macro or UCM is a character running a combat macro program while the player is not at the keyboard, not able to respond to a turbine representative. This type of combat macro is forbidden. If a UCM is tested by a turbine representative and fails to prove they are attended, the player's account may be subject to a temporary ban from the game.
