Best way to confirm the story is true. Attack the messenger.

You really think that CCP will do anything about this, i highly doubt it

Honestly the only way this gets much clearer is with a signed affidavit.

They need to get out the super sized ban hammer and start slamming it down.
Any spelling, grammatical and punctuation errors are because frankly, I don't care!!

TEST doesn't harbor botters. Read the whole article.

Crying about bad apples isn't going to save your space from the inevitable nerf it deserves.

sure it will when the players asking for the nerf are full of sh%t cheating using bots to buy plex pay for all the subs for alts and mains

This can't be... it's Eve where everybody is an honest and legit player... CCP would never allow...

I am convinced CCP is going to do oh so much about this. After all it's major 0.0 alliances involved. They would never let them get away with stuff like that.

Coming up next on EN24: The secret TEST conspiracy to put arsenic in your children's soft drinks.

Also a shocking expose on how The Mittani is in fact personally responsible for 9/11
Post on the Eve-o forums with a Goonswarm Federation character that drinking bleach is bad for you, and 20 forum warriors will hospitalise themselves trying to prove you wrong.

If CCP doesn't just straight up do something about this, they are a ****** game company. We already wait years for bugfixes. We already have to be ignored when we collectively agree on what needs to be expanded on. If they keep putting their players through this, this game will eventually turn into another Diablo 2.
If someone craps in your sandbox:
1. Light it on fire
2. Grab your shovel
3. Throw it back at them.

I remember you. You're that scrub who got hazed out of the other EVE forum where all the big kids hang out.

This infatuation you have with us is pretty fuckin' creepy.

I don't know ... usually if something is true, there's 15 to 20 pages of goons posting about how bad the OP is at life within the first 5 minutes.
With the increase in shiptoasting, the Report timer needs to be shortened.

Well it's more of a slap on the head of HBC this time. I'm sure they're arming and fueling the armada of forum alts to launch from the Bot Star as I write these lines to make the big bad thread go away.

Also, I like how Horus keeps repeating "Use me". Lol

i don't think there's a goon-tribe postal defense pact in place yet


no way that an alliance led by a guy who claims every 0.0 alliance in eve has a "sleeper PL corp" inside them could be led around by botters though. no way

I wouldn't even be able to come to a conclusion since the article is about a group of people who are not affiliated with my group of people.

It sounded interesting however so I have it a click. And after spending 10 minutes analyzing everything there was nothing presented but rumor and speculation. Coming from an apparently disgruntled ex-member.

Here we go, the usual counters to defect attention:

~ personally attack the messenger and those that agree
~ mock it as a conspiracy with the required mention of 9/11
~ tell people to READ the article, it clearly says something else

Lol pure comedy and so predictable

has anyone blamed semi-AFK mining on this botting behavior yet?

arrgghh, asking g-d posters to read what the article says, CLASSIC PSYOPS

We action against botters and RMTers based on actual empirical evidence provided to us by the EVE servers. We do not ban based on blogs posted on the internet, nor will we discuss individual actions whether to confirm or deny their existence as per long standing policy.

I can tell you that we've been working on botting and RMT for some time now and our numbers have shown things trending down steeply. Given that we're the only people who could possibly have access to this data anyone stating otherwise is merely speculating. No amount of articles published on the internet by third parties is going to change that, nor will it stop the conspiracy crowd from pushing turbo on their already overactive speculation machines.

If there's anything here to look into it'll be looked into. In the meantime we've been working on a blog to be published within the next few weeks with some fun new information.

story seems pretty legit
horus' ole gang of botters working their way into some non-discriminating mass recruitment alliance like TRIBE - normal
horus getting into some r-tarded ebeef with corp/alliance mates and burning them with an EN24 expose - seen it
Montolio trying to bilk horus out of his botted e-gold - a celebrated nullsec tradition of ******* over horus

We'll take that as a promise.

Thanks.
