Welcome to Korgath

So Sunday night, up late doing some level grinding, 2 mates and my self came across a priest with some rather strange playing habits. after figuring out it was a bot, we spent several hours just getting it killed.

We all opened tickets to report the player, and used the "report player for cheating" option numerous times, 2 days later the bot played priest is 89.

below is a small video of his story, after we found 2 mobs that could kill him very quickly.

Thanks Blizzard for supporting bots!

Why on earth do you care so much? Maybe you would've leveled yourself if you didn't waste time on worrying about a bot? How does this affect you? Blizzard should ban you for wasting their time imho.

How does botting effect real players....hmmm

Mainly it artificially inflates the economy. Then you have players being forced to do dgs/bgs with bots, who of course don't work with the team/group and generally bring them down. Then you have to figure all the legit farmers that are having nodes/herbs stolen from them by bots who can monitor and collect far faster and longer than a real player. Bots are responsible for a lot of sh!tty aspects of this game. For you to say it doesn't affect players is just plain ignorant. Or more likely your excuse for doing it.

lol I'm not the botter. Good guess though. I guess I understand your point. I hate when I see it in bg's but this seemed to be just a lvling bot. I don't understand why anyone would care soo much to sit there and camp a bot and then rally their friends to do the same and write up tickets for it. I don't play the AH so it doesn't really affect me I suppose. This case just seemed a little overboard.

This has gone on since the start of WoW. I'm sure if Blizz could do something about it they would. It just seems like a hard thing to eliminate. How do you suggest they take care of it smart guy?

lol hmm ok I see how this would be annoying. I didn't check the links first. I apologize, my bad. I assumed this was out on the map not in a dungeon. Assumptions get you no where. Like assuming I'm the bot lol I figured I'd get that posting on this lvl 1.

It's not hard to eliminate, after you ban few 100,000 accounts it will stop being profitable for botters to continue to exploit the game. I pvp mainly, and having a bot in a battleground is more annoying then anything i can think of in the game. why did we take time out of our night? we play and level for fun, no real rush to get to 90 so we can be bored all over again, this made our night 3 friends working together to slow down the progression of botting in the mmo we choose to play. Why do i care? Because for the last 8 years i have spent my time playing the game how it should be play by hand when i have time. when this priests bots completes its botting to 90 I'm willing to bet his first gear is pvp gear which means i'll likely have to deal with him all over again in the one portion of the game i love.

Dailies, 4000 of them since the xpac hit, being the first to get rare enchants helped along the way, selling dancing steal for 12k and spirt song for 15k helped a great deal. but i had around 90k when the xpac hit... i farm most mats i need and don't spend my gold on things i can get my self it adds up over the years.

unlike most people I'm not annoyed by your comments, I enjoy someone playing the otherside... if you had a strong argument as to why botting should be OK, you might, however unlikely changed my view on the subject... but as it stands i believe pursuant to the Terms of Service if you are botting your account should be forfeit

Why do these people exist?

But the burden of proof is on yourself. You haven't provided any strong proof that your methods are practical for preventing systematic botting. Why are you arguing that your attempts to screw over a random individual are ethically justified?
