So I was exploring around in Insmother in my Astero, and came into a ratting-system. One guy in local posted my name, the a link with Chinese text. Out of curiosity, i pressed the link, and it was a link with my ship, and all my fittings.
I haven’t lost any ships with this fitting before, and i cloaked up immediately after jump on every gate prior, so i found it weird that he knew my fitting this fast.
I decided to investigate this further, so i sent my alt to the same system. To make sure not to be scanned, i went with an instantly warping interceptor. This way there’s no chance for anyone to get a lock and scan off when i’m at the. Even if theres a bot doing it. And what happened?
Now we have had allot of bot’s over the years, and while i hate them, and wish ccp would do more to beat them, they are still just automations of regular game mechanics.
This however is a game-changer, if someone can extract the fitting of you’r ship as soon as you enter a system, PvP is as good as dead.
It’s lucky that the bot was programmed to post this in local, instead of any other channel, so it could be detected. But if people are using this kind of software, i might aswel find another game to play.
