Nike Cracking Down On RSVP Bots Again?
It looks like some people are getting some stern warnings from Nike as a reply for the #RSVP system in trying to get sneakers. In the note below it reads:
“____ ____ , due to suspicious activity tied to your name, we want to remind you that using automated services result in RSVP banishment.”
Now we know Nike has supposedly cracked down on bots in the past, but we also have seen the MASSIVE success of some of these companies saying they have secured over 6,000 pairs of sneakers through using there services. Its honestly crazy insane that so many people are so willing to give a third party extra money to secure a pair, but these same people complain when the prices go up $10 for a retro.
If nike is serious this time, hopefully we can see many names being associated with these lightning fast RSVP services being banned. I have heard rumors that there will be a new system in 2014, no word on when however, but hopefully it will improve upon the system making it something that a program cannot complete. I for one, thought this was a step in the right directly from the previous RSVP system, but it was simply not enough for these programmers. I have my faith in Nike, trying to make the processes better over time. Its an evolving sneaker culture and at the end of the day I want to feel good because I got a pair of sneakers, not because i got a RSVP that I paid someone extra money for them.
