Much has been said about botting on Tranquility. Sreegs has been running wild with his ban hammer and seems to have made a dent in the plain vanilla, commercially available, widely known by the community, botting software. It isn’t a story to tell your grandkids, but it is a good start. However, it seems the policing of the Chinese server, Serenity, is more… lax.
The Pan Galaxy Business Community Alliance is a relatively large, heavily industry-based alliance on Serenity. As far as I can tell, unlike Tranquility, space is less contested on Serenity. Null sec seems substantially less populated as well. Fountain is apparently inhabited by this carebear alliance. It is also rife with botting, based on google’s garbled translation of pages I found talking about the alliance.
Pan Galaxy was running a mining op in TEG on the Sunday. It was a massive mining op. It is quite likely that it was run entirely by bots. One of their alliance members tossed a mobile warp disruptor in line with the station. So, when the four members of the Tsukigata Coalition arrived in system, the mining bots failed to warp. The Tsukigatas arrived on grid with purifiers and bombed the mining operation.
It was a massacre. The plan went without a hitch… except, when CCP spawned in all their pods, some pods ended up in the awoxer’s bubble. Their botting program dutifully tried to warp them to station in the bubble, outing the awoxer. Still, 132 hulks dead is worth the loss of an awoxer.
