A while back, the scene was so similar to now and so many people were crying Ls out of their eyes. Back then the heart-breaking Yeezy Boost Zebra was the reason behind all the pain. Now, sneakerheads all around the world are still in shock because of how things went during the Yeezy Boost Semi Frozen Yellow release. Rightfully earning the title of the most limited V2 ever, the Semi Frozen Yellow left us all drowning in tears, sweat, and broken Sneaker Bots.
That situation generated a series of questions. Who on earth Copped? Who the Heck got Yeezus’ Blessings and is resting with the Yebras right beside him? But most importantly, How did they do it, when almost no bot worked?
Yes, they were exclusive and yes, the competition was crazy high, but is that what brought so many Ls on the bots team? Or is it some new trick Adidas pulled to help people cop manually and left sneaker bots waiting in a fake waiting room?
Sneaker Bots Performance
Now after the fight is over, and the fog has cleared the big question is, how did sneaker bots do this time?
Well, generally speaking not good. Not as nearly as good as they should have. But then again the Yeezy Boost Beluga 2.0 is coming out next week, and we all need some reliable reviews to help us on our next bot shopping spree.
It’s usually a good Supreme Bot. HeatedSneaks do very well on almost all Supreme releases. However, on the Yeezy front, they’re still not the experts. But that doesn’t mean they don’t occasionally succeed at copping on Yeezy releases. In fact, it seems that they’ve gotten somewhat better at this. Landing in first place on the Semi Frozen Yellow release, HeatedSneaks did a great job this time.
Something worth mentioning is the fact that many of the shoutouts posted on HeatedSneaks’ twitter account are susceptible to falsification. Many Social Media experts and Designers believe that some of the Shoutouts are either scammed or photoshopped. We do not adopt any of these claims, but for the sake of objectivity, we had to clarify that.
The Mac-only Bot. To be honest we’re impressed by the fact that AIOMacBot landed in the top 3 this release. What’s quite interesting is that many of this bot’s users managed to cop two or more pairs, some of them even got away with the really good sizes. You can check it all on twitter. So apparently these guys worked hard and deserved a landing in second place on the Semi Frozen Yellow release.
Having ruled the sneaker copping game for so long, these guys are known for their bot’s copping power and their reliable customer support team. However, it seems that something wasn’t going on too well with them on this release. But with all the adversaries they faced during that last release, they managed to get back in the game eventually. Some of their users will enjoy a very merry Christmas wearing the Semi Frozen Yellow.
What’s really funny was one user’s story on how he copped not one but 2 pairs of the Semi Frozen Yellow. He actually had to leave to work and left the bot running only to find that 2 pairs were checked out and became his.
Based on the number of shoutouts they got on Twitter, Dashe Bot ranks 4th in the Semi Frozen Yellow race. With many users copping multiple pairs it’s safe to say that the Dashe Bot team is improving, and only time will tell how far up the ranking they will go. Having users who managed to cop several pairs when other sneaker bots couldn’t even cross the splash page is a huge achievement.
YCop Bot & SplashForce
Both Bots didn’t do well this time. Not to blame the bots or anything, but it was a tricky release. Having only a handful of Shoutouts, YCopBot and SplashForce have to double or even triple their efforts to get back in the race.
Dropping Out of the Race BNB
There was one sneaker bot that had a presence in the sneaker game before and was absent on the last release. BetterNikeBot dropped out of the race before even completing the first lap. Once Being a big contender in the sneaker industry BNB seems to have let all its history got to waste. Which is a big mistake, because once you’re out of the race there’s no coming back.
NikeSlayer, NikeShoeBot, and SuperCopBot didn’t even show up to the competition, so we can say they’re all disqualified now. It is Ok to try your best and not score in the end than to not try at all. Afterall the effort counts just as much as the shoutouts.
What Happened on Adidas?
Adidas’ war on the bots seems to have gone to the next level. What did Adidas really do? We still can’t answer that particular question, but what we know is that Captcha Services weren’t performing all too well that day. Word behind the scenes is that Ticketing Bots were draining out Captcha Services. Taylor Swift’s Concert tickets released at the same time as the Yebra and Captcha services had to work double shifts. So it was really more of a battle between Sneakerheads and Swift’s fans.
Regardless of how well every bot did individually, the whole release was jinxed on Adidas. However, it seems that all bots, at least those that tried, did equally as well on YeezySupply. As well as they could do considering the enormously low stock level of the Semi Frozen Yellow.
Copping sneakers is as much about luck, as it is about the bot itself. So it’s fair to say that the top 3 sneaker bots are the ones to keep an eye on during the next releases.The real test is coming next Saturday, November 25th. The Beluga 2.0 will have a high stock level and should be easy to cop, so it’s not until then that we can rank a bot #1.
