I bet nothing is done.. Chib posted a review of all the trade hub spammers quite some time ago proving there was no way most were human.. Yet I bet those same names he posted are likely still spamming away.

good work.
Good job to the player "testing" the bot and reporting it as a test.
(am amazed it was not someone just saying they had but they actually had)

We need to see and force CCP to take this serously(more than they are)

Botters should be banned
There corps should be dispanded
Alliances that support botting should crumble
and Ip's should be locked.

This NEEDS to happen...to many bots.

The Offerer, This is an awesome job. If something is not done bots will destroy this game. Just like with the sanctum nerf CCP will continue to fight the artificial inflation of isk which is caused by bots. This only hurts non botters.
I really could care less what alliances funds their 0.0 wars with bots nor do I care what accounts get banned. What I care about is a fun game and bots subtract from that by making it harder for the regular non botting player fund what they want to fund.

CCP:
Instead of concentrating on stupid and nerfs and dumb features why not do something about people that are knowingly and willingly breaking rules. Should the regular paying customers take things in their own hands like the OP has done?
Feel free to add us to your payroll when we do.

Post #6 updated with 18 more characters from Waskisen solar system for 99 characters total.

Someone managed to kill one of the bots and I followed bot's pod to see what it was doing. It took a mission in Waskisen system, Corporate Police Force station. The mission was spawned in Urhinichi system (3 jumps from Waskisen). The pod went to Urhinichi, warped to mission area, stayed there for a minute and then went back to Waskisen. When it docked, I thought it would activate another ship and continue its work, but after a minute or two it undocked in a pod and again went to Urhinichi. I've spotted it this morning and as far as I know it's still doing the same thing... going to Urhinichi and back in a pod, docking and going again. Even downtime didn't stop it and it didn't switch to another ship.

Well, for all of your blustering, table formatting and fancy fonts, you haven't actually proved that these characters that you listed are bots. Only CCP can do that.


Find some new windmills to tilt at.


No, they are just a bunch of cool guys carebearing.Rolling Eyes

- Same naming method;
- Same corp creation method;
- Approximately the same dates of creation;
- Behaviour patterns;
- Agent and NPC corp standings that a human simply can not achieve during the amount of time they were active;
- A group of characters following the same patterns of 50+ characters have been reported earlier and all of them banned;
- And... they look pretty cool, don't they: http://go-dl1.eve-files.com/media/1105/2011.05.12.07.35.24.jpg



My point is simply that, ultimately, it's not the preserve of players to be investigating and confirming beyond a shadow of a doubt that someone is indeed using a bot (though of course there are always dedicated individual sleuths like yourself!) - that is CCP's job, and only they can say categorically one way or the other.

Besides, why would you want to do their job for them, without getting paid for it? LaughingSmile

I sat in a belt last night, not mining, watching a suspected bot when some other players interacted. Turned out to either not be a bot or the player came to the keyboard after the cans were popped.

The point of this is, there's a lot of player concern for this game which we enjoy. And because we enjoy it, we're willing to put in some slight effort (some mouse clicks, some typing, some investigation on the part of the OP).

My question is, what so bothers you about someone putting some effort towards protecting something they enjoy? Because that's what makes you look like you have a vested interest otherwise. Personally I think you just don't care and are in it for the lolz - you're just not butthurt enough to be involved, or you're hiding it well.

Also - to the OP: Thank you for checking these out and forwarding them to CCP. I'm sure they'll be investigating. Cheers, and thanks for your efforts.

Rather than banning bots, couldn't CCP change their security to -10.0, remove 'all' clones, so they perma die when killed, and put a reward on their heads?

CCP, you guys should really start actually taking action wihtin your own damn game, and not let it be on A '' to do'' list.
Sick and tired of waiting for bug fixes and ect. for years, only to have you guys give us new material in hope of us forgetting.

Warn a botter, does it not answer, BAN
how hard can it be?

They could come up with a Hall of Shame in Incarna. Like a Museum inside stations that you could visit to check impaled heads of botters and have a good laugh and/or inspire fear to those tempted to bot.

Nice

Glad to know I'm not alone.

+1 to The Offerer for this great find and effort. You've done good.

I was about to post something like "for the sake of being objective they may not all be bots....." ahh who am I kidding right?
It's this simple, if they're bots, thanks to your petition, CCP will find and ban them. If they aren't bots, then...uhh.... lets go blow them up for having un-original corp names Razz

bots aren't ruining the game. Eve sucks to begin with, its a **** game that consist off logging in training a skill and logging off.
who cares about bots? no-one with a life is gonna keep interested in this game for longer then 2 months, its boring as hell. and before u can do anything thats remotely interesting you need to train skills for 2 years.
**** eve.

ps: i think there should be more bots, so new players can buy a character thats doesn't require to log on and log off for 2 years before you can do anything.

Ninety-nine bots in Jita
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
As ninety-nine bots in Jita go by

Sorry that you are a moron, but someone has to be.

I only "log in, set training, log out" now because I no longer have time to play anything (finals and all). When I started playing, I spent all of my EVE time flying around, trying to get myself killed (why is it that people will hesitate to shoot at a noob in low sec...). Very fun.
Got a little boring after 2 months solo. Biomassed that character and decided to start over with my current main. Learning a new weapons system was fun too.

Met my current corp almost a year ago, and haven't been bored since.

It's been stated many times before but here it is again: CCP makes more money by having bots in the game than by banning them. It's just that simple.

Then why do they actively ban them?

And where is this proof that they make more form the botters than they do from the people who have quit because of botters?

Replace the word People with Botters. I don't think i heard this argument from anyone ELSE than botters. I'm to hungover now to look it up but it's some psychological effect of justifying action which you know that are bad.

I generally find that precise and complete descriptions combined with clarity of language and ease of reading are directly proportional to CCP response times. Current record to a concise and complete report: three minutes.

You failed to mention where or when the bot was active. "i saw a bad thing, go look for it urself" in a such a vast gameworld generating immense data traffic by the second isn't very helpful.

By the way, hope your "friend" never wants to play EVE again, since you just got all his accounts banned if this report of yours goes through...


those details have been submittet via named petition. the mail was some sort lets give it a try this way.

and yes hes been fully aware of what i'v been doing as its been a joint project of both of us


So are we to understand that you and your friend purposely got a bot and set it up botting for the purpose of complaining about the use of said bot and ccp's reaction to the information.

I wonder if that is bannable and if it were I suspect your "confession" may be all that is required to ban you.

Just wondering of course.

Only a bot user will defend possible bots to try to avoid being discovered or keep the word that theres no such thing as bots and hacking in online games.





I never defended bots, just the fact that it is really only CCP who can determine people who's been using bots and act appropriately. I just don't care as much as other people about the existence of bots.

Look, we know that they exist, not only in this game but wherever people play together and the potential for artificially inflating one's stats. To deny it would be not only pointless, but also rathe ridiculous.

Suffice to say I did receive your email and I apologize that I don't respond to every single one I get. I can't discuss specific actions related to a specific bot or botter. This makes the security inbox appear to be a black hole but we're working on some ways to rectify that.


Okay, let's say you really ban all bots [even if they don't have a RMT connetion]. Last dev-blog I remember you talked hours only about RMT. The bot discribed here had no RMT-connection. So It seems you don't care.

All CCP does is talking about RMT, not bots.

I hope you know boting without RMT ist bad for the game too.

Or, as is more likely the case, a symptom of how lazy and/or greedy some people are.

Nice representing PL there and their philosophy on botting.

I struggle with the fact that botting is so rampant that increasing numbers of players are taking up "bot hunting" as a primary career choice.
