OT - this is a horrible season.. filled with bads relying on instant cc, over-powered damage classes and retarded comps. playing over 2k is a nightmare unless you're playing with R1's or running god comp.
just get through it and hope it gets better next season ^^.
You can't compare an MMO with an FPS or a game such as LoL, and also, neither of the games you mentioned are "newer games."
People just bot in random BGs because they know it's a waste of time just to get to the next tier of Arena.
If people could AFK bot through randoms to get to LFR i'm sure they would do that too, then again they might just make a long series of dailies to combat that.
This is why I don't sub for the first tier, whatever is the easiest way to get gear, is the most exploited. People can AFK for gear with bots? PVP it is! Therefore no money for blizzard, they need to figure out if they want to ban bots or have players play.
Besides I still believe that Blizzard is doing a lot to prevent botting, but it's a fight that's hard for them to get an upperhand in. It's like IT security, developers need to fix every possible possibility at exploiting or hacking, the hackers only need to find one hole.
In this case the moment they find out how they can disrupt a certain bot and start the banhammer, then the next iteration of the bot is coming and it all starts over...
Try to see it as the struggle it is, instead of something that can simply be fixed. There is no way they can, unless it will become very intrusive and make BG's unplayable for the real players.
Only reason for random BGs is for afkers and bots. Think about it, they could easily make an entry arena system with a gear ilvl limit that took accord of your gear in all your storage areas.
But they choose to have a free for all where any bot and afker can sign up, so they obviously want people to bot and afk, they don't do much to discourage it. You can go into any BG at off hours and find 5-10 bots no problem within 2-3 queues. They can't seem to do this? Yeah right..
When someone is on auto follow for 20 minutes in a row, chances are they are a bot. If someone has 0 0 0 0 0 stats all across at the end of a round, chances are they are a bot. But they have to "investigate" riiiight. Of course. Have to investigate why someone has been playing for 4 hours and has accomplished nothing in a BG. Then give them a 3 hour afterwards. They only gained about 48(45) hours of free PVP for a 3 hour penalty, why wouldnt people bot?
Besides, your made up statistics are rubbish, it's hard to find a player on armory with less than 1k honorable kills, that means that vast majority of player base is joining random BGs from time to time.
Cross realm PvP? What's that? It makes you wonder if you're talking about world PvP and then I'd laugh again.
RBGs don't have "terrifying" class balance. The RBG class balance is the best it has ever been. Arenas are not broken.
There have always been bots in random BGs. Things are no worse. If anything, they are better than the nightmare days of TBC AV farming.
What do I think of PvP? Same as always. What do I think of your post? Severely uninformed and hilariously ignorant.
You no longer play the game, yet you feel you're allowed to make a post stating that PvP has collapsed...
You are not your role. You are not how much gold you have on your account.
You are not the mount you ride. You are not the contents of your bank.
You are not your epic purples. You are not a special and unique snowflake.
You are the all-grinding, all-farming crap of Azeroth.
From the #1 Cata review on Amazon.com: "Blizzard's greatest misstep was blaming players instead of admitting their mistakes. They've convinced half of the population that the other half are unskilled whiners, causing a permanent rift in the community."Blizzard's blame game in action: Deleting 6,100+ of Kevyne's posts and threads from the WoW forums.
I don't understand why people always think the game is going to balanced when an expansion is released, it never is....But they are doing a number of class changed come next patch to balance it more out, like they usually do (besides like last expansion where mages avoided change)
2- agree to a point, my only problem is high levels camping the entrance/exit of zones, I haven't leveled anyone in mop but I have heard of the douche bags doing this. (I also hate the battle.net friends being able to cross server cause of them being able to cause shit, then drop group and you can't do anything to them)
3- RBGs, I personally haven't really done these but sadly I don't hear of too many team doing them in my server but do hear they are nice.
4- random BGs aren't as filled with bots as you think, I maybe see 1 or at most 2 bots in a match, know what you do? report them (maybe threaten them if they are at the pc ) and move on, its super annoying ya but blizzard can't be watching everything themselves they need people to point out others breaking the ToS.
So far I have encountered more bots then I have over 3000 BG's just during a few weeks in MoP
