Hey guys,

Today, a group of us tracked down and ganked some botters. We only got two, and there where only 4 of us. But I'm hoping this will be the start of player justice in eve.

I'm sure you're all asking, how do we know it was a bot account? Well, there are several tells. I don't wanna give away all my secrets, I know bot users read this thread and I don't want to give them a tip of my tactics.

If you're truly fed up, and want to make a difference, contact me. If you can help gank, fund, scout, or watch. Please do. I'm not asking for a full time commitment, I'm asking everyone who reads this to do a little. If a thousand people do a little, it will = alot.

I also received more donations for this today. The people (again) have asked to remain anonymous, so you know who you are. I speak for everyone when I say "Thank you!"

Don't let this be the only time we as the players fight the hoard of the bot infestation.

Look, other gaming companies have delt with BOTS swiftly. This company has nothing but excuses, draw your own conclusions, nothing complicated about it.


there is NO other gaming company that has been able to remove bots. instead they simply put spyware on you're comp and continue to fail at stopping botting and RMT... WoW is the best example here.

botting scripts are a lot like computer viruses - invent an antivirus and a new version of the virus is made.


somehow I think putting hidden spyware on personal computers is illegal, particularly under EU law: if ccp is doing something like this covertly, then I hope their lawyers are well rested

So all these pages, all these threads, and you're ganking in hisec? Hasn't it been established that the rmt'ers are in null?

Goram has more bots that you can shack a stick at. If you can send any ISK to support my efforts there that would be appreciated.

ETA on blog SoonTM. Same schedule as the original blog that was promised after fanfest. Could be wrong, but I don't expect CCP will be too forthcoming or transparent with information. Just business as usual for them, I guess.

I hope the live dev blog will be supplemented by an actual dev blog post, and that the audio of the live dev blog will be made available for download at a later time.

I also hope the content of the live dev blog addresses many things that have been asked in this topic numerous times.

The war is over, you lost. Move on and start worrying about something important.

Same thing we've been saying to the Goverment for years about the war on drugs. You can't stop it, you can't control it. Get over it and spend your money somewhere else.

The war will not be over until we say so. If you think that the war is over, you are sadly mistaken.

Anyways, in regards to nullsec bots, those are handled a bit differently since the rules of empire space don't apply there. Usually, a nice little afk cloaker is enough to hinder the operations of the system they are in. Thus causing the ratting bots to hide behind cloaks in safe spots (which means less income) or delaying the operations of mining bots as they safe up in a POS. If you can kill the nullsec bots, even better.

The problem with nullsec is that it's closely monitored by the power blocks through their intel channels. If a ganking fleet is spotted on the entrance gate, the local alliance will be alerted and then we will have to engage a whole fleet of Drakes or Abaddons just to get to the bots. This is why it's more effective to simply send in a single cloakie because every alliance is not gonna waste their time and resources sending in an entire fleet chasing a measly cloak ship in the middle of nullsec space.

If you're truly fed up, and want to make a difference, contact me. If you can help gank, fund, scout, or watch. Please do. I'm not asking for a full time commitment, I'm asking everyone who reads this to do a little. If a thousand people do a little, it will = alot.

I also received more donations for this today. The people (again) have asked to remain anonymous, so you know who you are. I speak for everyone when I say "Thank you!"

It isnt just RMT either, the fact that you cant beat the botting nation in a fair fight becasue they produce enough minerals to build 2 to 3 supercaps a day kind of makes the whole 0.0 situation a completely pointless and boll***s affair.

Why bother with 0.0 when you really cant win by playing fair?

Easy way to remove 90% of the bots:

1. Ban half the DRF
2. Ban the other half

Job done

There may be some collateral damage but they all benefit in some way from it, so what the hell.

It is sad that this is still such a major issue. Botter's are ruining the economy. Players that play by the rules I guess mean nothing to CCP.
