Raging Against Bots

Raging Against Bots - EVE Online -

A new EVE Online blog has popped up on the official site giving a few details about the campaign to stop and eliminate 'real money transaction' bots. The 'raging' RMT campaign has been ongoing for the past year with good results. The dev post goes on to talk about how the team is also concerned about bots that are still present which may or may not ever sell goods for real world cash.

We appreciate the reports you guys keep sending us about suspected bots and so on and would like to use this opportunity to thank you for that and encourage you to keep those reports coming. Also, use of the "Report ISK spammer" feature has been very helpful in the battle against RMT - also something we'd like to commend you guys for.

We have by no means stamped out the whole of RMT in EVE Online. This is an ongoing struggle and the results depend on what we do - but they are also dictated by the conduct of you, the players.

ISK is sold because people buy it. Players do business with the RMT element and that is why accounts are hacked, asteroid belts are sucked up by bots and it is why we find ourselves in our current situation.
