Greetings Commanders,

Some of you have expressed concerns over suspicions of bot usage in Elite Dangerous. Frontier is committed to offering the best gaming experience to all of our players and we actively monitor and act on any developments that might unbalance the Elite Dangerous Universe, or offer any unfair advantage to some players.

We take any form of cheating or hacking in Elite Dangerous seriously. This includes the use of bots and third party software, which directly infringe on our Terms of Use that every player agrees to before accessing the game.

Our investigation teams constantly monitor and will ban any players found to be cheating in game - the use of bots is no exception. We take care to ensure that the tools and methods used to detect the use of bots remain discreet in order to prevent malicious users finding ways to avoid them.

We are extremely grateful to players who have voiced their concerns over the use of bots in game, and encourage them to keep reporting any and all infractions they are aware of to our Customer Service team. Frontier wants to reassure everyone that we are committed to addressing these types of issue now and in the future.

If you believe you have encountered a player using bot or cheating software please reach out to our Support Team who will take the information and investigate. As always, please avoid attempting to name and shame any suspects on the forum as this can hinder the investigation process and lead to innocent players being harassed.
