Idea to fight botting

How about that the start of a BG, during the wait, a pop up comes on screen. This pop up would have a set of simple 5 questions "what does a dog do?" with multiable choice opitions for answers. If you get one wrong, you are booted from the BG with the deserter Debuff...

Or maybe a command, like "Draw a star" and you have to make a star with your mouse.

Thoughts?

Just a simple word you have to type in is enough. I don't play wow to answer multiple questions

While im sure you are joking, the choices would be something to the effect of

Is a textile: Barks: Used to write with: Is a car part:

Something so simple and clear, any HUMAN would be able to answer it.

And if someone typos, they just get kicked?

What if someone is learning impaired? They get kicked?

Horrible idea is horrible.

Hence the multi-choice option...

The OP has a great point, but I agree with the fact that those types of questions would provide more problems than solutions.

In any case, Blizz needs to implement something to that effect. I was bg'ing the other day and it was appalling how many bots were there. It's sad how people have become so goal oriented that they pay 15 a month to have a machine play the game for them.

There's a 75% chance of just that, yeah. :P That's the point.


I'm aware. Just referencing a Game Show in an effort to spice up my comment a bit.

No? You missed #3? A lot of Japanese words are borrowed from the Chinese. That's a boring answer, though.


You could recognize the characters in the answer, as it was asking "which is orange."
