BG Bots : Bliz should I keep reporting?

I know you guys do not usually respond to many posts, but could you please tell me if I am wasting my time reporting Bots?

I am leveling a Shaman and trying to augment BGs for boredom - today I was in 5 BGs total with the same BOTs in every game - one time 6 of the 10 players WERE BOTS...I reported as many as I could.

I have even started to learn the AI for specific BGs. (I will Gladly post about it if you like - with screen shots)

I stopped playing and started sending /tells - trying to get the guys on the team who were HUMAN to vote AFk the bots.

It is bad at level 90 - BUT --Bot grinding levels for honor AND exp is out of hand.

Is there anything that can be done.. please? This is ruining this game 100% for me.

In game ticket? Maybe using an out of game ticket, because making a forum post will probably not accomplish much of anything. I suggest 100% making a GM ticket (for each one ;))

Then my entire game is taken up writing tickets - which up until this point have had zero effect on the BOTs.

and FYI - posting on the forums is a good way for people like you and me to voice our opinions on what we like and do not like about the game.

If we stand together we can help to make changes that will keep the bots from ruining everyones experience.

Well I've reported heavens knows how many, to no avail. I think blizz just partakes in drinking games with each complaint. Cheating? 1 shot, botting? Drink beer. Foul language? Hahahaha!

I am getting to te point where I think that maybe Blizzard has a side deal with the money bots, farmig bots, etc. they continue to ruin the games economy, experience, and overall fun. How can they do NOTHING about it - perhaps they are getting a piece of the pie? Not and accusation but lack of action just looks suspicous to me.

I gave up reporting them. Blizz could fix this but they wont.

There's no point in reporting anymore. It won't do anything. Don't even waste your time.

You guys are bringing me down with this thread. I've been pretty diligent about reporting bots. All this time i had hope that blizz was doing something about this.

But if it really takes a year for blizz to track and find a bot, then only give them a 1 hour ban

Why the hell am i still not botting?

It's painfully obvious when they're botting too. A few minutes into a bg just open up the score screen and look at all the people with 0 damage 0 healing and a normal amount of hks.

85-90 bracket is full of bots, still wearing heirlooms or level 70 PvP gear.

Keep reporting. If u do not anything, Blizzard would like to think players do not care bots in bg. I always report bots and I will keep doing it.

Passive defenses are bad design, if you really need to passively negate damage by class you're doin it wrong.


Agreed. It looks like yet another area that will turn into a case of the "haves" and "have nots" that can quickly spiral into an arms race.
