    So they can bypass the chore of earning the gear and instead focus on having a level playing field once they have obtained it, of course with bots filling spots in a Bg it is never a equal playing field so most of these people are simply using bots for the gear needed to advance into rated bg's and arena's.

    Essentially they do it because it is the easiest path from Point A to the desired destination of point B

    I knew a dude back in cata he used to sell lvl 85 toons with full honor gear, and he obviously wasnt lvling those toons or farming the gear, he was selling them for like $150-$200 so pretty easy money. I know thats not why a lot of ppl bot but i know that guy did it to sell the toons and he was making some decent money out of it, enough to pay his bills.

    It's got nothing to do with other players at all. You're an exception. Most people don't like the gear grind, or the disadvantage that comes with being undergeared, so they bypass it. I don't bot, but I get it. Sometimes by the time I have the gear I'm burnt out and don't even really enjoy the benefits of being fully geared. I've always been tempted to bot, at least for the first season of each expansion, but I don't because with my luck, I'd be one of the few to get caught and banned.

    I can understand gear grinding. But what I don't understand is how you can enjoy that gear grind when it entails you getting your ass kicked constantly and effectively bringing the team down because you're undergeared. You're no better than a geared bot in all honesty.

    P.S. YAY 6k POSTS! God...I've been on this site for 4 years now...

    Also daily quests could be very compelling reason to bot. I hate dailies, and I never did them until now because you have to raid.

    Dont try and argue that, every guild I've apped too asked if I was doing dailies to spend vp.

    I'd still rather take a badly geared player who goes to kill efc than a well geared bot who will run around aimlessly.

    First I think you need to define bot.
    At level 70 I ran 4 windows of WoW open afking in BG's while watching something else on the pc going back and occasionally making my characters jump.
    I have not done anything like this since, but I have definitely given up in BG's and went AFK or did something that had little or no consequence to the outcome of the game. This is not botting. There wasn't and still aren't penalties associated with this behavior, therefore it is perfectly alright to do. Everyone has their own ways of justifying it or not justifying it, but if there's no penalties expect it to be done.

    If you're wondering why arena masters and other people with high level pvp titles do it, then you clearly lack some major understanding of what honor is, what you spend it on, and how titles are acquired.
    I earned arena master 3 years ago, what possible reason could I have for wanting honor now? <----- That is how you make that question look

    It's got everything to do with other players. It's destroyed a large part of the game for the rest of the player base. 3rd party programs killed diablo 2. I sure hope they don't kill wow bgs.

    Those guilds are pretty bad and ill informed then. Any guild who is anyone now can gear a heroic geared player without touching dailies. You'll want 3k valor for the patch, but you don't need to do dailies and if they are struggling to where they need you to do dailies, they have issues with the current members.

    No matter why they are doing it, there is so many of them in random BGs that it completely ruined that aspect of game for me.
