    Being called a bot.

    I am pretty sure that I am not the only one who has got a whisper such as "enjoy your ban bot!" while farming some ores, herbs and even doing archeology!!! (lol?)

    Is not like I care, one report is not going to get me banned when I'm not doing such things. But that kind of makes me think the next.

    If people really report someone just because he arrived first to a node/herb/etc or just because they don't like the way you move faster than they do, Game Masters might have millions of reports every single day.
    If I personally had to attend so many reports where just 1 out of 100 are true, I simply wouldn't take my job any serious at all. Then think about all those freaking bots in BG's... there's no way we'll get ride of them as long as people keep wasting GM's time reporting players just because they can.


    I just wanted to share my thoughts and know your opinion, this kind of affect us all.

    I whisper them back and tell them to enjoy their ban too. That usually gets them to acknowledge that I am not a bot... but a jerk

    I think the appropriate response is, "101100101010010".

    Haha. I was called a BG bot the other day in WSG because a warrior (presumably trying to do exactly what he did) was hanging out along the side of the map, charged me, dismounted me, and drew me into an extended battle (I'm a healer). Wasn't even 30 seconds in, and I was making my way steadily toward the flag room on foot, when some guy claimed I was botting in mid and everyone should report me.

    Which doesn't work at all.

    I mean, surely if he is retarded enough to whisper a bot, then I'm pretty sure that he is retarded enough to think the bot will actually reply too.

    Depends on the tools the GMs have to detect true or false. If it's obvious they're at the keyboard, like chatting in gchat periodically, then it'd be pretty quick to narrow down the false accusations. The players who are quietly drifting from spot to spot can be sniffed out with a quick random GM whisper.

    Yeah. I imagine them talking to the monitor is some thick, hillbilly accent: "Hey Carl. Found me another bot outchere farmin' ores in Pandaria. I'm gonna report that sum'bitch. But before I do, I'm gonna talk to him". I respond letting him know I am not a bot. 10 seconds later: "Carl! You ain't gonna believe this but that crazy bot sum'bitch talked back to me. I gotta hurry up and report 'em".

    *falls over laughing*

    When I was unemployed I was usually on until stupidly late times, this meant I farmed late at night when no one was around so I could have more materials. Got called a bot a few times :> Funny thing was whilst doing it at late times I actually found a few bots myself and reported them. I never seen them again so I assume they got banned :>

    Glad it hasn't just happened to me, last few days I've had several whispers, an hour ago most recent, saying I've been reported for being a fishing bot and hacking the game.
    Apparently being able to walk on water is hacking, nothing to do with fact I was using anglers raft.....
    And yes I've fished alot on the daily pools, but only so I could trade then into grocery bundles to buy the bell
    I have never and would never use a bot, just wish folks would get their facts straight before accusing people of doing so

    I also report them. But mostly in BG's. Outdoors It's not that easy to spot them unless you actually keep your eyes on them for a while and , tbh, I have other things to do with my time and my eyes!

    Yeah fishing became some kind of walking into GM Isle yelling " BAN ME PLZ I'M HORNY 4 BANZZ!" You could be fishing and after 5 minutes you'd get like 4 whispers like "lol u bot". It made me stop fishing. Maybe it's just in full pop servers that we have way too many people.. but hell, it starts to get annoying.


    Also playing the AH, you get called "ah bot" after 1 hour, it's like.. really??
