The EVE player base churns out web tools and apps at a prodigious rate. It’s part of the community’s charm. One of the most niche, and most interesting, new arrivals is the EVE Bot Detector by Broadhead

The Bot Detector, on the surface, is pretty plain: a table of around forty nullsec systems, their sov holders, their security levels, and their probability of botting activity. The last number is where the magic happens: algorithmic analysis of data gleaned from EVE’s most current API system. “It is not a guarantee for botting, obviously,” Broadhead cautions, “just an indication… It can, however, be used to look for specific traits in a dataset. In this case, we’re looking for two characteristics shown in bots, persistence, and consistency. The systems listed are all showing these specific characteristics, among others, so they become candidates.”

The webtool’s creator is a bit of an enigma. His killboard is virtually empty, his corp has one member, and he’s been around for half a decade. It’s pretty clear he’s a third-string alt of someone who doesn’t want to be recognized. Fortunately, his creation speaks for itself. The Bot Detector comes with a whole lot of caveats but looks like a solid attempt at disturbing the status quo of nullsec ratting. Sadly, Broadhead notes that the Bot Detector can’t disentangle bot data from player activity in more heavily populated areas: “I collect data from all systems, but you are right, I only display null systems. There is too much interference in ls/hs from regular people to make a proper analysis.”

For nullsec, though, the results look promising. As of this writing, the Bot Detector is showing slates of 90%+ probabilities for systems in Branch, Etherium Reach, and Vale of the Silent, among others. Branch, for reference, shows up in the latest economic report as the second-highest region in New Eden for NPC bounty revenue.

So will this one tool make a dent? Maybe, but that doesn’t appear to be Broadhead’s goal. He speaks fondly of years spent ‘hunting and annoying’ bots and just wants to share his new tool with like-minded souls. Carry on, Broadhead; you’re doing Bob’s work.

    Too bad that CCP is so beholden to the RMT cartels. Sounds like a tool that CCP should be partnering on with the designer.

    Lol, thats some kind of scam. Prolly of some botter that want to piss of competition. Only one system in Geminate, and showing unrented systems as 90%. Also for few days there was systems in Venal showing as 80%. Tried to use this, went to Cobalt Edge and Tenal, and only thing i got was some chit-chat on local. I think I will continue to roam manually, without help of some shady tools.

      And no Goons/pets systems. You need to add some, mister Broadhead, to gain some credibility.

  16. “According to my research, after a in foreclosure home is available at a sale, it is common for the borrower to still have some sort ofthat remaining unpaid debt on the mortgage. There are many lenders who try and have all expenses and liens repaid by the subsequent buyer. On the other hand, depending on particular programs, laws, and state laws there may be a number of loans that are not easily sorted out through the shift of personal loans. Therefore, the obligation still falls on the consumer that has had his or her property in foreclosure process. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this blog site.”

  28. Thanks for your article. I also believe that laptop computers are becoming more and more popular right now, and now are often the only type of computer employed in a household. The reason is that at the same time that they’re becoming more and more economical, their working power keeps growing to the point where they may be as powerful as personal computers through just a few in years past.

  31. Great blog post. The things i would like to make contributions about is that computer memory needs to be purchased if your computer still cannot cope with that which you do along with it. One can add two good old ram boards of 1GB each, by way of example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should make sure the maker’s documentation for one’s PC to ensure what type of memory space is required.
