Ran the only guy in losec local thru zkill, interestingly one of his last losses was to an Autosythian lancer, while barge mining a losec belt. Shot a mail just for hell of it, local chat would have broke my single player immersion zen, he answered he had no idea why it attacked.
Combined with my both hunting and avoiding the diamond rats in both hisec/losec, and all lore, storyline stuff aside, I came up with the theory that groundwork is being laid to eventually handle even complex botting activity in a very creative manner. With active npc pvp.
Ive witnessed both autosythians and diamond gangs engage in fairly complex behavior which could easily develop into complex situations only an active player could respond to.
If true, way better than popup captchas?
