    A friend of mine reported another friend of mine for botting

    Now he's mad at me because I no longer want to be his friend. I don't even cheat but why would I want a snitch as a friend? Has anybody ever gone through a similar situation in WoW before?

    Well, nobody likes a snitch. But come on, it's a game, stupid thing to get mad over.

    So you're ok with condoning Botting? That's not exactly a good idea. The whole Snitch mentality is why it keeps happening.

    Exactly

    OP You sound like you came on here to get people to agree with you to say "I agree, I wouldn't want that snitch as a friend either" He's making WoW better by getting rid of bots. FU for stopping him.

    Botters deserve to be reported, friends or not.

    You sided with the botter over the guy who reported botting? Nice priorities you have. I reported my best friend for botting, and even took a screen shot of the report and sent it to him. We both had a good laugh.

    This basically. Just because he's your friend doesn't mean that botting is okay or that you should turn a blind eye on it.

    Big thanks to Shyama for the sig <3

    I never because my friends always lye for me, because i do that fir them too. (only in a death situation I would tell the truth) Hell one of my buddy byes gold in WoW and blizzard said that promote hackers, do i care? hell no, go ahead and buy gold, bot, I don't care

    Yeah it is a game. Why would you care if a friend was cheating in a video game? If any one i knew was botting i would say 'Fill your boots'.
    I'm a Forsaken. I kill firstborns while their mamas watch. I turn cities into salt. I even, when I feel like it, rip the souls from little girls, and from now till kingdom come, the only thing you can count on in your existence is never understanding why.

    You gotta remember, like the people up top said (translated) "WoW is life, your in game friends are better that your RL friends, I stab my RL friend to death if that means Blizzard gave me a loot in WoW"

    I definitely would report him, too.
    Cheating is cheating, which I absolutely despise. Friend or not...doesn't really matter. They know about the possible consequences and need to be ready to bear them.

    That said, botting says a lot about one's general attitude.

    Snitches are bad when when they snitch for personal gain. What your friend does is not for personal gain but for the betterment of whole game. A totally selfless thing I would say. I myelf am too lazy to report anyone.
    Funny thing is you are okay with a cheater as a friend but you don't like a snitch. The only reason I can think of is you would cheat given the opportunity as well.

    Be glad you found out your friend was a douchebag,

    He turned in a botter? Good for him. Botters have made random bgs almost unplayable. I say good for your friend. As for calling him a "snitch," it isn't like you thugs are robbing banks. But then being hardcore isn't easy is it?

    Seeing that the last two weeks, I get 4-6 bot rogues (they all even feature a distinctive "mark": an i with a double point in all their names) every other random BG, and they straight out ruin PvP for my leveling char (you CANNOT win a BG with 30-50% of your team being automated suicide machines, no matter how good the other player are (hint: they usually aren't)), I am all for reporting those fuckers into oblivion. Period.

    Now if you condoned reporting such a PvP bot, then fuck you. But even if it was "just" a fishing bot, it still is perfectly good to report. I just don't see any way for you to look good here, OP.

    It's that kind of attitude that allows the shit to continue. My friend wouldn't cheat and if they did I would report it myself. I have reported guild members for botting in the past and will continue to do so. The fact that people like yourself don't say anything and allow friends to do it are why they are still around in general.
