Bank robbers got more money than me, don't see me grabbing a shotty and heading to the First National.
Because the risk of spending the rest of your life in prison with trained agents hunting you down is definitely comparable to getting free stuff from a computer game with a miniscule chance of one $10 account being banned. Woeful example. There's next to no risk from botting, lots of reward.
I will NEVER do it, on principle. I'm the guy you see who reports their friends for botting, who rages people down in BGs in WoW for not kicking bots etc. I HATE bots, but that doesn't change the fact that the risk/reward ratio is skewed MASSIVELY in favor of botting. Hence the epidemic. It's not rocket science.
It's @#$%ing greed. By the players.
I play Diablo for fun, and I have quite a bit of fun doing so. I cannot see what is so fun about using a god damn robot to harvest drops for you while you sleep.
This isn't just greed, there's an EPIDEMIC of players feeling inadequate in the face of others, complete strangers, whom have more toys than they do.
This garbage with the bots, people feeling inclined to use them "cuz they got 'em why can't I" just goes to further what many of us have been saying about so many here for so long.
Young, self-entitled "gimmie gimmie gimmie" instant satisfaction generation of little robot using losers.
