I want to believe in CCP, but after what I saw today, it’s hard.
A guy in my corp was ratting in a system with 2 WH active, in the fking SUNDAY!
Let me explain, to people that never play the game or never rat why this is very suspicious.
Ratting is boring af, period. What happens most of the time is, we jump in with a drone boat and TRY to stay aware full time. We are humans after all, and we have needs. Add to that list GREED, we are after all greedy.
So normaly when you start ratting you are scared, you jump away every neut that comes into system, but after some time in a busy day, one must have IRON WILL to keep the jumping in and out, sometimes neuts just stay hidden in a system to make the ratter stop.
Why did I lay this context, well if you understood the picture you will figure it out that humans ratting will lose their ships now and then, PERIOD! In the long run you will lose a ship.
This guy not only have a iron will, he rats during most busy ours and NEVER lost a ratting ship!!!
Damn, I took the matter on my hand, jumped into his anomally, stayed on purpose, he opens chat, and send that foreign like phrase “Hi blah blah blah blah blah blah, please leave”. I fought myself WELL that’s a damn good krabber, and was going to reply “sry mate, let me give you the isk”. But before I was able to type a simple phrase like that he “typed” the same phrase again… I was like, wut? No matter I proceed to offer the isk back, he finished the site and warped off, no reply.
I was like, well, my bad. Tried to start a conversation 2 times, no answer., Ok anti social, then in fleet chat he appears asking me if I think he’s a bot, WEIRD?! Why not talk in private before to just throw ■■■■ in fleet chat 5 min later?
Again, if you never krabbed in null, let me draw you a picture, most of time ppl got mad just cuz you jumped in their sites and start QQ in local. I mean not everyone is equal, but the way I acted on purpose nobody would be quiet about it so easily, they either are nice and ask if you new or be rude.
So my arguments:
- Perfect ratting even in busy ours;
- No ship lost;
- No communication;
Also the guy made fun of me, “let me know what CCP replyed”. That intrigued me, after CCP presentations and anti bot team I was with the impression BOTs are veeery rare by now and afraid.
To my deception, they are OPEN SOURCE IN GITHUB!!! You can fking read the forum without one account.
They clearly state: “We are not detectable, we just read memory”.
- Their ship layouts are the same, the bot client needs passive in middle and aggressive on top;
- They read memory, unlike humans if some memory is written but not shown in UI the computer will react to it. I know this can be trick, but can be implemented here and now to ban a lot of botters for good before they adapt.
Anyway, disapointed with the response of the botter, looks like CCP is not that good @ baning botters has they announce. At least I did not found anyone crying cuz they got banned in forums.
