    Do you retards honestly believe that Blizzard either don't care or even support bots due to holding on to subscriptions. They obviously don't like cheaters and they have a history or banning exploiters in all of their online games. I bet none of you have any software engineering / programming experience and don't realize what a massive fucking challenge it is for Blizzard to not only detect and ban bots, but to make the game more resistant to botting. If they could do it easily, it would have been done.

    On a side note: For PVP this botting problem (and ever other problem with random BGs) could be solved by implementing random BG / personal MMR like every respectable online RTS or MOBA game already has. That way all the retarded fucks who can't play the game or bot get low MMR after a short while and everyone else can enjoy the game.

    Are you serious, i seen plenty of bots in IoC especially, they have the normal pattern they move and they move in groups... cannot be mistaken for a player. Reporting always every bot i see, hopily they get banned.

    PS: captcha would be nice

    captcha would not work, it seems nice on paper, but it would put more of a hamper on "legit" players vs the bots. sure first few games it would be loved... but doing it every time, or even randomly would only provide annoyance and people would eventually complain and ask for it to be removed.

    1 - Observe the bots to work out how they work
    2 - Make changes behind the scenes to break the bots.
    3 - Test to make sure the changes break the bots.
    4 - make the changes go live
    5 - Ban the players using the bots in a single wave.
    6 - Repeat the process all over again.


    Now all of this takes time. A LOT of time. it doesn't just happen over night.
    Years, apparently.

    To answer the OP's question: No, I do not think Blizzard currently has any interest in banning bots, nor do I think they are making any good-faith efforts in that direction. They have done so in the (distant, in game terms) past and may do so in the future, if they ever believe the bots are costing them revenue. (Should that actually happen though, it will be far, far too late.)
