Since the Blackout is over the bots come back in hundreds, and while its somehow enjoying to hunt them and having a arms race with them when they change their pattern, i think they are normally just annoying as f*ck since the chance catch them is near null without some effort and huge time investment in a normal roaming gang right now.
Also please don’t get me wrong, this solution is by far not the best, but it would be a low effort solution and would at least help until ccp has some better recognition tool / process to get rid of them.
So what i would like to change right now is two things:
First, don’t let Bots generate ISK, either by freezing their wallet as soon as they are marked as bot, or through some flag which sets always the bounty to zero when they killed something. Freezing the wallet has the advantage that the bot can’t access it, but it looks like he is generating something. Setting the bounty to zero is somewhat easy detectable and they will at some point setup some ESI checks to replace these as soon as it happens.
But right now a banned bot will directly create a new Char and send him out, which needs again to be reported etc…, while this Solution at least delays the ISK flown until it is recognized by the operator.
Second, and this would probably require a little bit (more) development effort, i would like to let these marked bots spawn tackle NPC in the anomalies they go in. I think there is or was at least always some trigger which let spawn additional rats in WHs if you use specific ships, so something similar could be used here. Make it like every wave has a chance of whatever percent to spawn two-three of point frigs and that should do the job.
This would help to make at least a bit content out of them, and lowers the frustation of burning through 20 systems with only instant dock ishtars/myrms whatever.
Bonus would be if the npc points would count as hic scram to these marked players, but i guess that would led into some headache for some developers.
Think that was it basically, now you can tell me whats wrong with the suggestions.
