Bots farming whiptail in Uldum

This is beyond me. Myself and three other people have filed tickets on a specific person for bot farming Whiptail in Uldum, all of us received the same response, that it will be investigated. Almost a week later and the freakin' bot is still down there almost 24 hours a day picking flowers. Am I missing something here? Is Blizzard trying to tell me I'm a fool for farming my own mats, that's it's OK to use botting programs? WTF, I shouldn't have to compete with an AI to gather mats.

Of course they give a "shyt". I'm sick of people thinking Blizzard employees sit on their butts all day eating donuts and ignoring player concerns. Listen to Snipersteve- he's right. -__- If this person really is botting, they will shut them down.

No that is cops. Blizzard employees usually go for twinkies.

Yeah I understand letting them continue for a bit to find out what program they're running, just didn't think it would take that long, but whatever. Dudes worth free honor every time I run into him.

Normally to be banned from player reports, it takes multiple reports from multiple people. Then it takes anywhere from 3-5 weeks for them to investigate the account in question. They go back and check logs and monitor behavior.

For Blizz to really beat the botters, relying on player reports is just too inefficient. What they need to do is update Warden to check for more "current" offsets being used by popular botting software and then ban them when detections are made.

botting isnt an actual hack, its just a program that types movement scripts, etc. into the chatbox, it doesn't actually "load" into wow per say, which is why Warden can't pick it up unless you want them to invade your privacy and be constantly scanning everyones computer, which im pretty sure they wouldn't / can't do.

It's obvious you have no idea what you're talking about. Simple, rudimentary bots just "type" commands into WoW. But there are a handful of other bots (including the most popular one, which is what I'm sure he's using) that inject their own code into the WoW procress by hooking a call in Direct3D. These bots can also read every piece of information in the game, straight from the WoW process itself.

My friend irl runs a botting company, every bot he sells, including the mining and herbing bot, does not load into WoW otherwise it'd set off a red flag through warden, so idk about the direct 3d thing.

If you're talking say that he's a reseller of popular botting software, then he doesn't run a "botting company". Also, if you're talking about the same mining and herbing bot I am, it very much does hook itself into WoW. There's really no point in arguing about it..

Been reporting the uldum bots when i see them and yet they continue to bot 24 hours a day 7 days a week for a month and nothing is done.

Save the blizzard studies them garbage.

In a months time the average bot will pick around 15,000 stacks of whiptail and 95,000 volatile life so take your time blizzard there are only around 10 bots running around there at the same time.

Saw one hacker bot the other day in uldum he would drop down start picking a herb, get attacked and then run into the sky to get away from the mob where he would then mount up. Watched him do that every time he tried to grab something around a mob.

It's not that i blame blizzard for there being cheaters in the game but i do believe that their lack of response to the cheaters is their fault. This botting has been going on for years and i have every reason to think it continue until wow finally dies.
