Hi, please improve your bot reporting tool as it is absolutly part of the problem! leave a box where people can state why they think the character is a bot! as it stands now you have a warning to not abuse the reporting system so you are basically encouranging people to just ignore the bots!
i realize there are people that think everyone is a bot but it is very hard to tell for sure! so give people the space to put some input as to why!
you get a report that says bot but no details, how are you supposed to act on that?? no wonder there are so many!
I suspect almost every coercer in fw that is just a couple days old and running small plexes to be bots, can’t be 100% though so i and ccp should just turn a blind eye?? doesn’t seem right to me!
Also, how hard is it to assign 1 staff to actually be in game, logged in, with special powers of course to check out these reports in real time?? it is really just 1 server after all, why is that not done??
Where did they say there isn’t a problem? All they did was provide information on why CCP doesn’t ask for notes: any report triggers an automated tool to start review of the player’s activities to compare to CCP metrics for indicators of botting - the report doesn’t go directly to a GM.
so your point is its working fine and theres no problem?? than why are bots everywhere?? i don’t give a ■■■■ how it works, it is insufficient and anyone with a brain in their head that actually plays the game knows it!
Nobody said it is working fine. There is simply no benefit to adding commentary to a system that cannot consume the data. It would need to be a larger overhaul of the entire bot reporting function, because literally no human sees the bot reports unless the automated tool backs up the assessment with enough flags for review.
Using alts to post bad ideas won’t help your case, btw.
These “notes” will be completely useless. It’ll be filled with useless stuff like “he didn’t respond when I convo’d him” (why do you feel entitled to a response?) and “he warped really fast back to a citadel when I entered system” (which, again, doesn’t mean anything).
Stop trying to add nonsense to this. Report them and move on.
No, we don’t need to make it a game.
No, we don’t need to give bonuses to wannabe bot hunter roleplayers.
No, we don’t need to have players add dumb reasons for why they think something is a bot.
I don’t, but your continued attempts to incorrectly categorize my position is sus. Why you so angry about it?
Why? CCP already has their Sentinel anti-bot program. Why would CCP waste more time making a tool that PLAYERS would engage with (along with all of the abuse players can cause), when they can just continue using and improving the tools that they, as developers, use? Why must the tools come to the players? (Never mind the fact that PLAYERS are not the ones actually making this tool, as you tried to imply).
There it is again. I don’t think you know what that word means but you’ve seen it on 4chan or something, so you’re just absent mindedly repeating it as if it means something.
