This is a discussion as to why botting isn't worth getting into for most casual sneaker heads. Towards the end of the video, I share some tips and tricks on how to cop sneakers for retail without the use of a bot. This isn't a video intended to discourage aspiring resellers and botters, but it's important for me to help people understand the expectations when diving into this hobby. However, for people who have a serious passion for sneakers and enjoy the thrill of drops, then botting might be a good choice- and can be lucrative for those who are focused and persistent. My recommendation to anyone looking to get into botting is to first join a cook group so that you have a team to help walk you through and expedite the complicated learning process.

    H0L1DAY1H0L1DAY1Vor 29 Tage
    • my point is. if you're after a pair of shoes and you really want to get them 'at all costs'. the cost of buying it for resale would be cheaper than trying to buy a bot to buy it for 'retail'. but obviously if you can't afford it, or if you don't wanna pay for that price then just dont buy it

    • @BOTTER BOY NOVA barkleys were non hype and those flew before their release date,same with the grifs sold a whole dam month before release by certain stores,even plain ass white ups i gotta grab as soon as they are availsble or i will miss it.plus my size 14 isnt carried by most stores too.

  • I shouldn't have to pay resale or buy a bot or a slot to hit a personal pair of kicks.

    playboikacyplayboikacyVor Monat
  • Personally, I have friends who bot but I am manual except with an autofill extension. The amount they spend on setting up, time-wise, and then money for the bot's and then proxies, I could never invest this much money. The way they sound after they don't hit as well, with hours of investment pains to hear. While I set up for 10 minutes, maybe 20 if I want to open a ton of sites, and my L is quick and painless. One shoe pays for my extension and its a lot simpler. I don't think botting is worth it unless you have the capital/money already.

  • This video is very true I never listened when most of botting is trial and error I’ve been going manual for 2 years and been botting for almost 6 months now I thought getting or renting a top tier bot was the best bot I was wrong the best option is nsb or a beta bot to learn on botting and everything that comes with it🙏

  • I’ve been botting since last may. On the unc 1s I bought over 1k in proxies and got me me only a couple. But I was still able to grab over 30 pairs. I did get 32 mochas and 26 yeezy breds. Botting is a full time job. You have to keep up with everything hunting down good proxies learning anything that’s changed in bot protection. It’s not easy. I still do it. So many people botting now you have to be on top of it. Hey nova I have a shop here in Minnesota called kkgkickz on ig. If your ever selling in bulk please let me know but I’ll try to reach out to you.

  • Sooooooooo then why do you bot then?

    Luis HernandezLuis HernandezVor Monat
  • Ar the end of the day Manual users will continue to be destroyed by botters when it comes to footsites unless they switch their bot protection to something that actually eliminates bots and help the manual users it will continue to happen. Only way you hit on footsites is if you have a thousands/millions FLX points and it’s a Reservation

    • @BOTTER BOY NOVA yes

      Maje PMaje PVor Monat
    • footsites is horrible for manual. and they wanna disguise it as "oh we making antibot changes to stop botters". all it did is stop manual. 🤦‍♂️

  • Bro you BOT... why would we listen to you?

    Kris HillKris HillVor Monat
    • @Kris Hill I understand the frustration kris. no matter which way you put it, copping sneakers isn't easy. But I've also seen many people throwing away thousands of dollars trying to bot to STILL end up not copping anything, so that's one of the main reasons why I make this video.

    • @BOTTER BOY NOVA Explained that way I can respect your stance. Again it just odd for a person who Bots to tell others to go manual. You see for those of us who actually do go manual and take L... after L... after L... it kind of robs you the wrong way being told to keep going manual when it doesn’t appear to be working. You did make a point about competing with much more experienced Bottets. So it feel like a lose lose situation for a person who simple wants to put does on his/her feet.

      Kris HillKris HillVor Monat
    • @Kris Hill I barely go manual (because why would I when I have bots).. but manual is definitely not dead. Some recent manual success: Ep 99 Jordan 1 UNC, Ep 98 (foam runner), Ep 89 (Notre Dunk), Ep 88 TWO bodega dunk, ep 81 Turdunken. People that want to bot is welcome to try, but I don't want to see people just getting burned and think it's as easy as I portray in my videos. In fact, I actually make more $$$ if I bring new botters into the scene because they will most likely use the sponsors that I'm working with (which are excellent, reputable companies by the ways). So why would I sabotage my own ability to make more money? To make sure that I don't mislead my viewers so they understand what they're getting into. As I said, anyone can get into botting- but it's important to understand the risks involved.

    • No I don’t think you understand what I’m saying... you allow us to witness you Ls and Ws but we rarely see you hit manually. Hell most ppl who don’t bot wish they did that’s how hard it is to hit manually... I feel this was deception to clear others out the botting space to allow more W’s for you and your counterparts.
