For the past couple of weeks I have been streaming distribution mission bots. I believe over that course of time I have got 3 fleets banned. Yesterday I got two fleets banned. Now obviously one of the fleets came back and I am currently streaming it. This time however I did things a little different.
Level 1 distribution missions are run out of Fovihi (derelik)
Level 2 missions run out of Agha (derelik)
Level 3 missions run out of Tanoo (derelik)
Level 4 missions run out of Illinfrik (Heimatar)
The station is Trust Partners Trading Post, Thukker tribe. Probably going for nomad implants.
I am currently streaming a fleet of 1 day old character running level 4 missions.
I am sure there are similar setups across the universe. However I live in the Derelik system so this is the one I care about.
Anyway it took me a whole few days of research to figure out the bot makers MO. So as a dev, how hard would it be to check these four systems once a day to see if the bot fleet returned?
Obviously they are not trying to hunt down the guy running the bots, either because they can’t or don’t have the time to. Either way the fact that the bot maker remakes the bot fleet less than a day after it getting banned means CCP can’t or won’t stop it. If it is won’t shame on them, if it is can’t then why not do as I stated above and check the system once a day? Is that literally 30 seconds of work?
I as a player have done most of the work for them. There are others who have done the same. We get it, you can’t stop the guy running the fleets, but what you CAN do is 30 seconds of work and ban the fleets when they come back. I am sure you can ban the fleets faster than the bot maker can remake them. After a while they just might give up if they never make any isk. And if a guy is running a 20 man bot fleet it is probably RMT and not just one guy trying to plex an account.
I am literally streaming them on twitch, they are not hard to find. They don’t hide what they are doing. If CCP has given up on trying to stop them could you please let us know so we can stop caring about the game? If the company running the game has stopped caring I would like to stop caring too.
