And no. I am not talking about Bots in AI Games.

I wanted to bring something to your attention that otherwise may have escaped it. I experienced multiple games, and reported them, but nothing was done to adress the issue. No one commented seriously on the forum post, and from what I have seen doing a "Search" on "IP Botting; Botting; Hacking; Cheating, Multi-Boxing", no RIOT employee has ever commented on anything regarding this issue.

Botters.

There are people out there that are actually creating legitimate bots.
At first. It started out simple enough.

Now, it has advanced to the point to where these "bots" are doing more than just moving around in spawn. These bots are now able to follow a specific individual and perform tasks. Including buying items, casting spells, and otherwise seeming like they are "Actually there and playing".

Allow me to show you a couple example of games/bots and allow for you to decide for youself.
I do not know if there is a way to methodically see what every champion does, says, and buys, but if there is. I would definitely check that data and cross-reference with other games to determine whether or not a pattern is established.

Here is game 1 :

Either they are botting, or they are multi-boxing. More than likely multiboxing.

What was happening in Game 1. Was that the nidalee was the leader of the bots. They were constantly following her around, in the exact same spot, to the exact same location. Not only that, But they all bought the exact same items, and brought the exact same summoner spells. Which is funny, because that was honestly thier downfall, thier flaw.

When the nidalee flashed. Every single one on that team, flashed from the exact same spot, to the exact same location. This rules out the "Professional Trolls" Because not even professional trolls can flash to the same location in an instant.


Here is game 2.

This is by far the most advanced league bot I've seen yet. You cant exactly tell, but it was the soraka. The soraka was constantly following the corki. It would only heal the corki, and it would only give mana to the corki. Even in a team fight. It may seem like it was just an overzealous healer. But instantly healing a corki with a rank 5 heal, on a minion strike, hardly constitutes a REAL player. no REAL player, would heal a corki, from a 12 damage minion strike, with a 20 second cooldown heal. The soraka tried to play it off in the end, but it was too late. I had already caught her hacking.

Just thought I'd bring this to RIOTS attention. This is not the first time i've seen it. And i will see it again. And I will take screenshots again. I do not have access to a video recording software or i would record it and then post a video. But there are people botting in this game, and it needs to be brought to light.

The Soraka bot, The name FockBox420, Here is his/her game information. All these games are her playing soraka.

Do you see the trend here? The soraka was botting, it was staying out of range of minions, and being able to be hit in some cases. It would just heal its teamate, and the go back so it couldnt be killed. No matter who you are, the possibility of botting is beyond that of the possibility of a troll. Either this person is a professional griefer, or is a bot. either way, this needs to be investigated.

I submitted this to the Player Support Specialists as well, and was reccomended to post it here. So I am.

I have encountered multiple bots, I havent recorded all of them, but now i know what behavior to look for. These guys are not just botting, they are selling these accounts. Which may not seem like a bad thing, but even if they sell the accounts, they still have access to it. And if the person that buys it use thier credit card information, they can easily get access to thier credit card funds.

Because the way you guys have your credit card information stored, there is nothing you need to input but a 3 digit CV code in order to buy points, and I tested it out, you can enter whatever numbers you want, as many times as you want, it does not lock you out.

So hypothetically, a person with enough patience, can enter 001, 002, 003, 004... all the way to 999, and can eventually guess thier CV code. This not only grants them access to thier card, but some banks as well.

My bank, personally. All I have to provide is the last 4 digits of the card number, and the CV code, as well as a form of identification. The last one can easily be faked. This goes beyond botting. These guys are committing crimes.

Awesome. I've been waiting for this to pop up after you ran your mouth off about reporting Corki and I that game, accusing us of multiboxing.

A simple search of my summoner profile, FalsumInOmnibus, and corki's profile, Zintaru, will show that we've been playing as a team in normals for a while. That Soraka, on the other hand, has only one played game with us.

Next time, do a little research and check your assumptions with a match history before you start firing off reports post-game, accusing innocent players who were equally disadvantaged by a botting teammate. It's a simple thing to do, yet you accused him of cheating the whole game, accused me of cheating when I defended him, and tried to get everyone to report us. Real cool of you.

That guy had nothing to do with us, and it certainly isn't multiboxing. Just botting.

Next time Falsumin. Re-read the post. Nowhere In there did I accuse you. Sure, I accused you in game. Because I have run into other games where the Bot was defending himself by typing into the other accounts.

And yes, I accused the corki, because the soraka bot was only healing him. Which made it seem like the soraka bot was his.

that , coupled with the fact that corki wasnt responding. and that you were responding for him. was very suspicious.

Ugh. Reread *my* post. All I talked about was your behavior in-game, trying to garner reports against the two of us, and your behavior immediately post-game, firing off reports. Then I finished up by clarifying for anyone who may read this that it wasn't multiboxing. It was botting.

Either way, your attitude was insulting enough in that game, that I've been actively looking for you to start this thread. I don't really care about what you have to say about it now. You were so disruptive and inflammatory in and immediately after that game that it was ridiculous.

You tried to convince everyone to report two people who were equally disadvantaged by a botter. If you convinced even a few of them, that's 3-4 reports for Zin and I, based on nothing more than your frothing accusations. Totally unacceptable.

Should have just kept this on topic. Instead of firing off your frothing responses. I admitted my accusations to the player support specialists. I shouldnt have to repeat that again.
