I could literally spend my entire online time in EVE, flying around and reporting bots.
Ratting bots of all kinds, mining bots, mission bots, courier bots, contract bots, market bots, intel bots, alpha bots.
Hotspots are Nullsec and Highsec.
So, why should I do it? What do I get in exchange for this, apart from exactly nothing? Not even information about steps that may have been taken, not to mention a bounty for making this game better.
Should it be my job as a player to keep even the most obvious bots out of the game? Those, who spend the entire month, 20/7 botting missions or mining fleets or ratting? Why is that my job? Why can’t a simple automation detection do it? And if it is my job: why do I have to spend my in-game time clicking “report bot” without any transparency, any compensation or any other involvement?
Furthermore, who can give me proper guarantees that even if “report bot” eventually leads to a ban, the thing will be properly followed through, including removal of all assets, SP and perma-ban of any account involved? Why exactly can’t these things be made transparent to players?
Also, why would I report bots, if I know that the damage done by them to other players, will not be recompensated? For instance, a poor new player eagerly running his or her missions - competing for LP prices (or whatever it is missions give you) against bots. If I should report these bots, I want that the money they made going to the new player and not waiting for them, when the bots come back after their temporary ban.
In short: why would I report bots?
Rather than: accepting that this is Bots Online and decide if I want to compete against Bots.
