First Time Accused of Botting

Arenas
So I was on my alt Rogue (Dak-Arygos) playing some low level 2s (like 1700-1800 mmr) and offered to help a priest gear up. He wasn't even full PvP gear, but we were still doing alright. I was playing as Sub (did a couple as Combat but prefer Sub, and it was easier to peel for him).

Last game of the night we went against an Aff Lock/Rsham team. Match went on for a while and with dampening pretty high I managed to setup a Step/Kick on the Shaman into a Blind, and Sap out of the Blind, all while dancing on the Lock. Managed to kill the Lock and felt pretty good about the win since we were outgeared and they were on the verge of winning (deep in dampening, healer oom, etc). My partner was pretty shocked too.

As soon as we got out, I started getting some really angry messages from the Lock, accusing me of botting. I tried to assure him I didn't, but obviously there wasn't much reasoning with him.

Anyway, I took screenshots of the conversation (I think it's mostly in order) with WoW minimized to show I'm playing on a Mac (which as far as I'm aware has no bots). Sorry for all the pix (it occurred to me after closing WoW I could have just made my chat window bigger... was kind of put off/frustrated at the moment):

Make my living as a programmer and it's basically either Linux or OS X (have to have UNIX, command line, etc). Not going to buy a Windows machine just to game on (I guess I could dual boot, but the SSD on this thing is not very big to begin with).

I know that was just in jest though, so I'll give you an upvote to counter that down :p

The saying is pants on head retarded and what you said makes zero sense.

RAWR IM ANGRY, EXCUSE ME WHILE I PUT MY PANTS ON MY HEAD.

I don't doubt it. I didn't actually look at the pictures. Imgur or bust.
Don't worry about it too much I get reported for botting sometimes too, it' s mostly when you completely outplay a team like you did. Let me give you an example for me:

I was actually Qing my alt into a certain hunter that posted on this thread and I ended up tremoring every fear grounding like 4 hojs and ground 5 traps in a game. For me it was super obvious when these guys were going for CC as they would run at me to hoj or stand on top of me and trap off CD. Soon after, I got messages from every member of their team saying that I run with various bots and that I'm a cheater.

Moral of the story is that people who get dominated can't get over how badly they played and it's much easier to say "Oh that guys running a bot" then saying "I really need to work on faking interrupts" or taking into account the enemy cool downs.

With that mog I'd accuse you of WAY worse things than just botting.

That was.... impressively disturbing.
"I'm 2600 on my main"
I lol'd. But honestly I'm surprised you entertained this idiot for as long as you did.

rofl
Subtlety rogues are out there to make a difference from the real mongo rogues. I respect you for playing that spec. Don't even be bothered lol, people get angry sometimes.

I mean, I always try to test if people are kickbotting before I call them kickbot in my own head.

But some people just define any pre-kicks as kickbot :P You have my support dude! +1
