Do CCP ban IP address for botting or just individual accounts?

Bannin IP is nonsense. the majority of the internet population in world does not have a fixed IP.

That would be an extremely dumb movement.

No, he ask if they ban every account that is logged in from the same IP at that time. And not if they Blacklist a single IP forever.

AFAIK they try to ban every account. Not sure though. Also if you don't RMT you get a 30 day ban the first time, no?

Hi.

Out of curiosity, if you get caught botting, is it only the botting account (assuming no RMT) that gets banned?
Or is it all of the accounts that you own/your IP?

Just to clarify, I have never used bots or macros in EVE Online, and I probably never will unless almost everyone does it and it is required to stay competitive (which hopefully never happens).


CCP ban the player.

Nice disclaimer.
That's not going to stop them checking up on you now.


HAHA

If I was serious about botting I wouldn't have made the thread ^^

And I agree, it would be really terrible for the game if this was the case. I might quit playing too.

Noticed you have no likes. Here, have your very first like! yay!

I'm likely wrong, but I seem to remember it being mentioned awhile back that CCP build a system ID out of not-easily replaced hardware ID codes, and they issue bans and such using that.

Along with that, every MMOG type game I know bans the person, not the character/account. Be that as it may for actual enforcement, but...

I can tell you only how I'd do it. I don't know how CCP does it.

Some IPs that are proven to present a constant threat should be banned. If a violation is coming from the same IP multiple times, it means either that it's a proxy or a static IP of a bot owner.

You can't simply ban an IP the first time it makes a violation, because many players have dynamic IPs at their home.

My IP, for example, varies frequently and I must almost always type my character name when I log in to the forums. This is because my ISP is the biggest ISP in my country (practically a monopoly) and my IP and GeoLocation varies significantly. Sometimes my GeoLocation shows that I'm in the totally opposite part of the country (NOT a good thing when I have to test some GeoLocation functionality as a web developer Straight).

As for "using macros when almost everyone does it" part: I'd rather leave the game if that happens. What's the point of playing if you have to cheat in order to play?

We ban all accounts owned by the same individual. How we identify that exact is a bit of some complicated science I won't go into. But it in-cooperates a number of factors. IP address is a part of that. But ultimately it's at the discretion of the individual GM to asses the best course of action, and they have this data available to them to make the call.

But we don't ban IP addresses outright per say. And we don't ban individual accounts only, unless the GM thinks its appropriate in the specific case.

Do you guys sit there all dressed up in wizard outfits and knight armour around a table of computers at a list of found botters, And say "WE CAST YOU OUT BE GONE FROM OUR LANDS FOUL BEAST"!!!

Nah, just as in "The noob comic" they wear white bedsheets and simply torch the players. (it's a fun series btw)

Expect all of them to get banned. CCP can trace multiple accounts even without the IP. All they need to do is look at your transaction records.

They're vikings. They hold up their swords and scream in honor of Thor. The more bots they ban, the more pleased the God of Thunder becomes and the more likely they join him in Valhalla.

Banning anything based on IP these days is pretty stupid unfortunatly due to increasing number of ISPs using stuff like carrier grade NAT and even without that in place my ISP often uses "transparent" proxy systems that in some cases will result in some services seeing dozens of people as being on the same IP. Not to mention stuff like halls of residence and so on. Annoys me a lot when people still base stuff around IPs when banning or blocking accounts or services even though unfortunatly there is often little else to go on.

You can ban them sure you can close there account sure. But a ip adress can be change a mac adress can not. But you plug a new device and the mac adress is change and 1 Phone call to your provider and your ip is change to. So there is no use to ban players for that however you can delay them and thats it.
