Why You Can't Win a Nike Draw
Here it is! The day you've been waiting for. It's 9:30 AM on a saturday and your next addiction drops at 10 AM EST by your favorite brand Nike. Eminem said "your palms are sweaty" but it's literally your whole body and your ass. You have already envisioned how they will look on your feet, how they can be sold for double or how they will make a great present. Ten AM hits and its an instant sell out. You didn't even get to click the ATC button [Add to Cart]. Thanks Nike, You have officially ruin my saturday!
If you're reading this it's too late. You have most likely fell into the trap of thinking you can cop an exclusive and have already been denied. We all have, and frankly, I think it's why we keep on coming back.
Bot Automation or just Bots is a computer script that Nike, Adidas, TicketMaster and other online companies have been battling since the beginning of e-commerce. They take most of the limited sneakers, fashionable items, and get the front row tickets to your favorite shows. They always seem to be one step ahead because they are. Here's the kicker, when Nike incorporates a new system or a change on their website the developers begin to update their bots. Some developers even begin to create new scripts and new bots. It is a never ending cycle that can only end with pulling stock and selling in-store only items. Otherwise, the bots will always win.
How Bots attack Nike Draw
The Nike draw worked great until it was cracked. Now there are numerous companies with state of the art bots who can win the draws, cop the stock, and reserve the sneakers. But how?
Bots, in collaboration with verified accounts, run as many as 100,000 entries in one instance. I'm serious, I saw a man run 98,000 accounts for the Wotherspoon Air Max 1/97. Ninety-Eight Thousand *Add expletive of your choice* Accounts! I like Math so let's do some theoretical math.
Let's say it was you versus Mr. Ninety-Eight Thousand. It's your one, maybe two accounts versus Ninety-Eight Thousand. This would give you less than a "you aint got a shot in hell" chance of getting the sneakers. But wait, there's more. There are thousands of people trying with thousands of accounts. All this means is that your chance just went from "you aint got a shot in hell" to "No". Make Sense?
I always support Nike because I've loved their athletic clothing and sneakers for years. I also support them for trying to fight the bots. They tried to incorporate verified accounts into the draw. The theory was, you're only allowed to enter into a draw with one account. That account has to be verified both online and through text message. The problem, which actually is very recent, is there are now programs that mass produce Nike verified accounts. Of course there are.
What can you do?
We all have failed a number of times and we all have gotten lucky. Some more than others. You can bot up [buy a bot], buy some accounts, and join the masses. The best part about it is you don't have to feel bad about botting because it has become the everyday norm.
