KickBot, or as the name appears in-game [DE]KickBot and the alternate name DE_KickBot, is a Digital Extremes asset bot designed to monitor in-game chat and temporarily auto-kicks or suspends players who violate the chat rules. If the reason for being kicked is in a different language, [DE]KickBot will respond in that language.
Known reasons for a kick include:
- Spamming (repeatedly posting the same message or a long string of the same character).
- Heavy profanity.
- Posting trade and recruiting requests in other chat tabs (such as typing "WTB" or "WTS" in the Region or Recruiting chat tab).
- Custom Keywords programmed to Auto Kick/Suspend.
- Excessive use of Capital letters in a sentence (Ex: THIS IS AN EXAMPLE).
Well known for various kick-spree moments that players purposely perpetuate as a joke, [DE]KickBot is also capable of automatically responding to certain words or phrases:
|You say...||KickBot responds...|
|"Should I potato"||"Potato all the things."|
|"Should I forma"||"Forma all the things."|
|"Whip it"||"Whip it good."|
|"What is love?"||"Baby don't hurt me."|
|"Don't hurt me"||"No more."|
|"Never gonna give you up"||"Never gonna let you down."|
|"Never gonna run around"||"and desert you."|
|"Hey kickbot you down with opp"||"Yeah, you know me."|
|"I'm going to bed."||"Sleep is for casuals."|
If a player posts the question "Where do I find orokin ciphers?" in chat, [DE]KickBot will post a series of lines one after the other in a private message, forming a poem which is as follows:
- If it's Mirage you seek, you may obtain by Quest.
- To her powers of illusion, we can attest.
- Within a vault, the requirements lie,
- as part of a dark and corrupted infested sky.
Scripted responses from [DE]KickBot have a cooldown so that they are only triggered every so often.
- Some of the scripted text may or may not still be functional when typed in chat, as [DE]Kickbot has become unavailable in certain Region Servers, and replaced with [DE]Crewman as the primary Chat Bot.
KickBot has a multiple alternative nickname depending on the region it's in, such as [DE]HoofBot or [DE]SassBot. [DE]KickBot is currently unavailable on some servers such as Oceanic.
