I wish I did not have to wine like this…
Yet, these are my little observations:
While reading a few posts and comments on some non-Blizz forums, it appears as if botters have already adapted their scripts. In fact, they have done so a long time ago. You all probably know this already.
Here is what I think that botters are up to:
- Use of cellphone as a hotspot for 8 or more game creating bots (depends on on how many hotspots the botters have access to) to create 8 diff games which they simply wait in or quickly leave to get into queue for the creation of more games.
- They may be staggering the game creations so that their main crunch teams can enter them right after they have finished their main game on their main ip address.
So, these queues may have an effect on the tiny and not very tech-savvy bot community. Yet, these do not have any effect on the seasoned botters. These queues have a huge effect on the legit community. But, the main core of botters are effortlessly adapting.
Just to be transparent, I am not affected by whatever way people play games so long as my family, my friends, and I can create private games to have fun in. And, I know that Blizzard’s mods and techies are doing what they can within the scope of an older legacy game.
But these queues and disabled ingame chatting are having a huge effect on nonbotters. I hope that there is a compromise. It is a fun game when it is playable.
