For a few weeks I was streaming distribution bots in action. Fleet after fleet was eventually banned. Started off taking 7-10 days at a time. But after about 4 fleets were banned, things changed. I would find the fleet, report it with an email, and within 24 hours the fleet would be gone.
However this changed the last fleet. I checked on dotlan before I went to sign on a few days ago and saw the bot fleet was back in action. So I jumped in my shuttle to go confirm it and they were gone… CCP got rid of them before I even reported them this last time. I even checked other locations I thought they might have moved to and nothing.
It has now been 3 days and the bots have not come back. I think the bot maker might have given up or switched to other botting activities.
So my hat is off to CCP, yes they can move slow but they will move. You may just have to prod them a little.
On a side note I see a jump in price in thukker items, the bots were farming thukker LP points.
