When we were young we all knew that in the future, "robots" and "computers" would do all our work for us while we pranced around in spandex overalls. Well, the future is here and apart from the spandex overalls and the prancing we were mostly right. But as it turns out...we are still required to do some things on our own. Like mining. And running missions.

CCP Sreegs just wrote a blog about what happens to those who don't do those things on their own.

Check out the blog right here and if you have any questions, Sreegs and gang will be here to address them.

BUT WAIT, THERE IS EVEN MORE! From now on, and this current wave is included, characters who receive a warning such as this will have the characters locked to the account. This means that once you've received a warning for botting your character transfer privileges have been revoked in perpetuity. This is to prevent people trying to circumvent the rules by recycling accounts. Yes we know people pointed out this could happen last time around and if you'll remember we said "We'll keep an eye on it and if it becomes a problem we'll deal with it". Here is us dealing with it. We'll probably have to come up with some form of timing solution for the future, but as it stands today it's forever. If you care about your dudes don't to bad things.


THNX A LOT Big smileBig smileBig smileBig smileBig smile


and,

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE MAKE THAT PERMANENT!!!!!

If you put it on timer botters will make a little more accs and when time pass out sell the old one that was locked and buy new one for reserve. And you will have that bad circle of recycling chars started again, only circles will be a little bigger (more chars in the same circle).
You see that we were right last time and you didn't listen, listen us this time and keep locked chars permanently locked to that account.

Nice to see. Smile

Keep up the good work Smile

I like the character lock to accounts, too. That should provoke some tears.
#13 Posted: 2012.03.01 17:35
Awesome, friggin awesome.
#14 Posted: 2012.03.01 17:36
Yes! YES!

I can already taste the tears when "I'll just trade characters on the- wait- why can't I transfer?" occurs.
Botter tears, best tears.

What I mean is that a fraction of people actually get a second warning and the amount of people in all time who have ever hit a third was something ridiculous like 3%.


Meaning 1st time perma banning is hurting the people who learned their lesson and still want to play =P

I agree with this .. botting and rmt kills eve ... and i wager that a lot of players have left because of these things .. keep up the good work ccp
#18 Posted: 2012.03.01 17:37
You say that the recidivism rate for the third strike is as low as 3%, but what percentage of the accounts related to one or two strikes actually remain subbed? These people are spoiled beyond the rules of Eve and the warning system probably forces them to quit altogether.

It's getting quite disturbing how no dev seems to respond to your posts on this point.
They're *really* obvious... why are they not banned?

That is a LOSE-LOSE scenario.

Because although illegal we still use the stuff they bot, and ccp still gets accounts payment. Turning them into legal players is a WIN-WIN.
