    You can still make a small fortune working the AH in a matter of days (let the bots farm). Frankly aside from a few ruined battlegrounds where is botting hurting anyone? Endgame is unaffected (arena, raiding).

    Opinions?
    for me, getting a 25% bot BG sucks. i care because i pay them and their lax policy meant to boost quarterly conference call morale is hurting me

    It's a more serious issue in battlegrounds than "just a few games". Even if you ignore the bots farming, or ruining BGs. Most bots are probably stolen accounts, there's the serious issue.

    The fact that it's only getting worse as time goes on, proves Blizzard need to get a better handle on it. People are losing faith, hence why there are so many topics on it all the time. It directly inpacts peoples enjoyment of the game, that shouldn't be too hard to grasp.

    It is a huge problem that they have become sophisticated enough to do random 5s and BGs ruining the experience for the legit players. You try doing 5s with bots that do 1/10 dps of even a average player.


    And no, "lol 5 mans" and "lol bgs" is not really a good enough answer, it has a bad impact on the game and everyone. Whereas before them selling gold really did not have that much of a impact. Gold has never had that much value in WoW, in Classic a Rogue or Warrior could get the Krol Blade faster or some other epic that was weaker than almost every other raid weapon. So the problem has never been about gold or economics ingame
    BAD bots are a nuisance, especially in bg and 5 mans. i dont know many different bots and i can only judge from my own experience. in my experience the bot joins the 5man, says hello, does not pull below a set mana treshhold, only rolls on role and class specific loot, rezzes, waits for the group to be in the room before he pulls and says goodbye. overall the bot is certainly among the nicest and fairest players you will ever encounter.
    does he hold aggro? oh hell yeah. does he do damage? certainly and he is quite good at it. does he deactivate pet taunt as dps in grps? very much so. is he on par with high level raiding players? god no.

    dont stop botting, just ffs get better bots and routines already.

    But the better bots cost money, a friend of mine bought one (Cant remember where or what), and it costs him about 5-6$/month. He only use it for lvling, and lol. That bot never dies even how many he pulls. Just AOEs them down, heal him self if he's under 50% hp, kill all mobs loots and sell all grey items when the bag is full and mail the green/blue/purple items to a bank char. It's amazing to look at him going to be honest!

    And then there is those free bots (I assume), that only keeps you from going AFK in BGs...

    Botters are scum that ruin this game, they made random BGs, part of game I enjoyed greatly, unplayable. They also made gathering professions useless for legit players, it's not worth my time to dismount and mine that node because ore is so cheap.
