Realtime signature scanning for bot programs or at least detection of injections into the game (admittedly I think the first part is actually illegal).

    True. However I don't consider botting in wow to be such a big problem overall. Yes, running into a cheating scumbag is very annoying but it happens very rarely to be even a remote threat that legit players will leave the game because of bots. I mean, come on, if they are not bailing en-mass on Elder Bots and Hackers Online, they sure as hell won't bail on wow.

    about 500k People lost their accounts in the banwave in january, People using the automation software PQR and PE, my friend used the PQR bot, and didnt get banned (i copied his wow folder, and got the addon for it, the Interface part of the bot, which i had disabled got banned) so they did take it seriously, but i don't think you can expect a New banewave soon, as it was pretty genius Money making for them to release the 90 boost With the purchase of WoD a few weeks later, blizzard don't like bots but they don't like banning bot accounts either because of the obvious less Income for them, so to make a point to the community every now and then they ban People, but generally botting and those account make up for a fair amount of 100's million each year in Revenue

    I don't think this is such a big deal.

    You won't get high rating with auto interupt alone. You still have to know how to play and use your CDs and CCc at the right time, and have good comunication with teammates.

    The biggest cheating is acquire PvE Raiding gear and Legendary Cloak to dominate World PvP.

    and other people who don't cheat? I don't know how you can brush this off as something minor, I've seen it happen at the highest ratings as well and it's been gamebreaking there as well.

    It was a dream to PvP for about a week, then all the bots came back, and it has become 100x more of an issue than it did previously.

    The basic problem is that in a game as large and complex as wow you aren't going be able
    to stop people bending the rules. If you think about all the billions of permutations involving
    spells and items its just inconceivable that some tactic won't unbalance the game.
    Make your character SUPER SHINY!
