The more sophisticated bots are actually pretty helpful, I've had bots pocket heal me and get top heals. More bots less qq, I just hate the leeched bots who avoid afk kicks rather then help. The difference is hundreds hours of code, but the honor farm has to go up when the bot collects more hks for healing or at least wacking some thing.
Maybe my perception skills need improvement because I never really notice bots yet everyone says they're a huge problem (which is true) as of now. However I have seen many posts of people experiencing similar things so maybe I need to pay attention more in Bg's lol..

Im confused which bot these guys are using, mines isnt the sharpest tool in the bunch but it doesnt camp a single base.
Honestly it CAN get worser than this state. Belivie it or not.
OP spells at Ashran? Based on faction population? Yes, WODs gonna be the most awesome expansion ever! Propably gonna hit under 4 million sub mark.
Anyway, let me explain how your analogy works out, since he said he reported 200 botters (you even quoted that):
The burglar is robbing a house, and he sees her in the act of robbing that house. He calls the police, tells them the exact name of the burglar, the time they robbed and the place they robbed. Also assume that the police can instantly teleport to the place if they want. And then, the next day, he sees the burglar again, robbing another house. And the next day again. And again. And again. And this happens with 199 other burglars too. The last burglar he saw was high-fiving a cop as they ran out of the house. That is the correct analogy.
But of course you have to understand, after all Blizzard are preparing a big strike to take out the entire botting program!1 When? Well, that could take a while, maybe a few months, or maybe a year, who knows. Maybe the botter even retires from botting by the time they want to do anything.
If word came out that GMs are proactively hunting for botters, then botting would be rather scary - but apparently enough people do get away with it, otherwise there wouldn't be too many.

Any person with a brain knows, that all it requires to take a base from bots, is to lure them away from the base by engaging and then running away. Then someone can stealth in and cap.
End of the day bots still ruing BG's.
This morning I (horde) was playing Eye with one other player, and 13 bots mainly camping BE before camping DR. FUN. Not.
How come it's so hard to eradicate this?
