Whats been going on, I wake up this morning and I have orders actually filled, Noticed there's been a **** load less 0.1 iskin. Is it a holiday or have the bots been silenced?

If the latter we should make it a holiday

You missed your pricepoint, you could probably have bought all that stuff cheaper ;-)

There was a bot slaughter, but from what I heard it affected mostly 0.0 ratting bots. Would be pretty nice if they finally swept up some of the Jita market bots that are on 24/7.

There were at least three people 1isking one of my often quiet goods in Jita today. Maybe they just moved on?

Something must be up, usually I'm pushing **** uphill just to make a bit of isk and today Its just fallen in my lap with bugger all effort. Have had some 0.1 isking but not that every obvious 5 minutes bull **** that I'm now used to.

Maybe just lucked out, or someone knows something i don't. I'll see how things are tomorrow when I'm
Probably broke lol

I noticed similar, normally a couple hours after I logoff for the night my orders grid to a halt but it was noticeable last night that I had a slow but pretty constant stream of both buy and sells.

If they really have banhammered a few market bots I'll be a happy little trader.

Bots often break after patches is one of the reasons I heard. No idea if it's true or not :)

Hey fellow traders

I've noticed the same, orders not sniped for hours, across all types of items.
Where they have been sniped I'm seeing less frequent updates, more consistent with someone
checking their orders every half hour or so. I am not seeing whole stacks of orders moving
every 5 minutes they way I'm used to.
But there isn't enough data to go on yet to determine if this is a fluke or something else.

If it's true that CCP has finally taken action against market bots after all this time, then we're seeing just
how staggering their impact on us human traders has been.

I hope that CCP realize how big a problem bots are - and if this is actually what Jita is like without them -
then I hope that people will never allow it to go back.

I can't see any change in Rens so far. Maybe they aren't actually bots there or something.

But I'm definitely keeping my fingers crossed on this one for sure. Smile

Don't get too excited, bots will be back and if ppl catch wind of Jita being more trader friendly again, human competition will pick up considerably. I've already stepped up my trading activities there since I found out. Many more will follow, nullifying a large portion of the banned bots.

That is entirely acceptable.

To echo KrakizBad, that is indeed entirely acceptible and I have absolutely no problem with playing the market
against other players. People make mistakes when .01 isking, bots don't :-)

That is good news, nice job CCP Twisted 1k -2k bots is a prettty large number when you think even a single market botter with a decent sized xxbn+ wallet can cause havok on many, many items for regular players.

Don't forget the other trade hubs. I see trade pickup in the limited markets I'm involved in. Also nice prices on minerals and ice these days. Might have to light up some roids in celebration.
