Statement Regarding Recent Bot Usage

KLONDIKE, CPAC Headquarters – After a while of not being very relevant in the community, bots are now coming back to interfere with our events. In the past, massive bot raids haven’t lasted for long, and this situation won’t be any different. We have found a way to effectively rid us of bot outbreaks in the past, and I doubt this situation will be any different.

Just over a year ago, a post was written by Flipmoo which outlined how to report these bot sightings so that the program used to manufacture these bots can be patched and eradicated. This information pertains to this situation as well.

North America – (888) 861-4111
Monday through Friday, 8am-6pm, Saturday, 8am-4pm, Sunday, 10am-6pm (PST)
United Kingdom – 0-800-085-7638
Monday through Sunday, 10am-6pm (GMT)
Australia – 1800 237 406
Monday through Friday, 10am-6pm (EST) (Sydney, New South Wales)
New Zealand – 0800 451 604
Monday through Friday, 12pm-8pm (NZDT)
All other countries – 250-861-5111 (NOTE: Long distance charges may apply.)

Monday through Friday, 8am-6pm, Saturday, 8am-4pm, Sunday, 10am-6pm (North American Pacific Standard Time)
Remember–if you call then over 6pm on the weekend you may have to leave a message.

Be sure to state these three points in your phone call.

  1. Notify them of the server in which the bot raids occurred on, and tell them you were throwing a party.
  2. If the bots had any characteristics, inform them.
  3. Do not give them the bots names unless they ask you for it.
  4. If you know the program name, stating that in your phone call may help them patch it quicker.

An example case is quoted below. The bot program was patched within 2 days of the call.

Witness – Orange 

Club Penguin Official – Green

Hello, my CP name is ****** and I was on the server Breeze and me and my friends were having a green penguin party and then some bots showed up.

Oh? We never heard anything like this!?

Yeah, They were in some type of formation with a lead penguin.

So you and your friends were having a party and then bots show up in some kind of formation on the server Breeze right?

Yes.

Like I said we never heard anything like this before I’m sorry that they ruined your party, we will review this situation and fix anything we need to. Have a good day!

You too. Bye!

Simple conversation, major effect. An organization know as the Black Lime Raids were disabled in the past due to this phone call.

Another strategy is to contact Club Penguin Support. Their email is support@clubpenguin.com. If you don’t feel comfortable calling support, which is the more recommended option, emailing them would work as well.

These botters, who hide under anonymous names, are most likely members of this community. While armies may like to blame others for this situation, this isn’t something where you can just point fingers. These kids enjoy messing with us, as immature and sad as that is. This is a situation that the entire army community should be wary of.

And also, for any army out there with people involved in this group, if you are found guilty of botting, CPAC will no longer include you and your army in anything sponsored by us. We do not endorse botting in any shape or form in even the slightest capacity. This is a fair warning.

  1. first

  2. “As sad and immature as that is”
    Oh the irony. As if CP armies aren’t sad and immature themself haha.

  3. Although it’s already stated in the post, I’d like to point out that you could just send an e-mail stating the server where you have seen the bot, around what time, and maybe attach a few screenshots into the e-mail. Also, if you have an idea of what the bot program may be, include that in the e-mail as well. Club Penguin probably already knows about these programs, but it wouldn’t hurt to make sure they do.

  4. “And also, for any army out there with people involved in this group, if you are found guilty of botting, CPAC will no longer include you and your army in anything sponsored by us. We do not endorse botting in any shape or form in even the slightest capacity. This is a fair warning.”

  5. Everyone does realize that Camelogical is at every bot attack. (Except for the one the stay did)

  6. Good post and thanks for the information.

  7. my sister saw Camelogical and his bots a few days ago on Blizzard and Sleet, so he isn’t just going after cp armies

    just sayin’

  8. Lyon is one of the people who bot, js. He even pc’d me and told me he was going to do it xD

  9. You use caps. You’re so great that I can’t even understand.

  10. Yeah people still used the bots for their events to make the army go big. #Respect

  11. No one in the community are using the bots. It’s by a group called Camelogical.

  12. You respect people who use bots for events?

    Wow..

  13. “And also, for any army out there with people involved in this group, if you are found guilty of botting, CPAC will no longer include you and your army in anything sponsored by us. We do not endorse botting in any shape or form in even the slightest capacity. This is a fair warning”

    There have been many instances where there has been solid proof of botting or multilogging, but CPAC have done nothing.
    I will be hoping some serious action is taken this time.

  14. Most often, the proof isn’t damning enough. With an offense like this, the proof has to be extremely, EXTREMELY legitimate, and in most cases it’s not definitive enough to correctly accuse someone.

  15. Jon, your statement says “I hope cpac will do something about it” CPAC is a news site.

  16. Incorrect.

  17. sorry l don’t know what l’m saying

  18. Sox, there is no place called the Army Police Station either.

  19. I am aware of that. That is why the council should return.

  20. Waterkid is mod on the chat with bot hackers Insanity. http://prntscr.com/5iqdho

  21. smells like an elaborate ruse

  22. But autotypers are pretty much bots…
