Bots have been in Eve in some form or other for over 10 years and I have always just ignored them but now they have become a nuisance due to Alpha accounts. I used to be able to mine ice with our corp for hours on end every day but now after an hour the ice belts are gone. So we set up a sting. A ton of alphas just mining away without any fear of being shot and after the ice belts are depleted they disappear. Every day the exact same thing at the exact same time.
Low sec and hisec bots have increased as well. Killing these nulsec bots has no effect, they just seem to respawn and keep mining.
