Are bots not banned anymore?

Why doesn’t Blizzard Ban Bots anymore?

Thousands of them going in and out of Botanica Dungeon.

hundreds on Island of Thunder.

If people don’t report them, they don’t get banned.


As long as there are mindsets like this, then bots will flourish.

Reporting these bots works, and if they’re not taken down immediately, that’s because Blizzard is working on breaking them completely. They absolutely get banned, though.


there are soooo many all the time. I shouldn’t have to sit there and click each one and write a sentence. And reporting the ones coming in and out of Botanica is impossible.

They do, all the time. It’s an ongoing effort. Please report what you can.


didn’t you just post this?

Report and move on. Let Blizzard do their thing. They don’t work on YOUR timetable, but they do take action.


You don’t exterminate vermin by killing them one at a time, you follow them for a while, figure out what makes them tick, and wipe thousands at once.


By now cant they see the same route of a character taken over and over again?

Ya they deleted my last post.

after 14 years they still cant figure out how to see Bots taking the same path over and over again.

And you know this how?


We’ve fought them for years, we’ll continue to fight them. As long as people give these criminals cash for gold, items, runs, etc., - they’ll never disappear, they have a vested interest in returning, much like cockroaches.

I appreciate the different tone in this post over your last, thank you.


That’s not how it works and shows a lack of understanding on your part. They study the programming so they can break it. Also, a lot of people who gather develop routes that some think could make them bots. Should be ban them too?


because they’re doing the same thing day after day…

you’d only know that if you were watching them doing it day after day. Some could mistake you for a bot

Because you made false claims and also brought up the recent suspensions for exploiting. Read the forum Code of Conduct.

They do ban bots. Usually in waves that also break the bot functionality. Bot makers make new bots and the cycle starts all over again.

It is never going to end as long as people can use them for an advantage. Some people just love to cheat.


Again, How do you know Blizzard is not aware of it?

Why wouldn’t you have a GM watching these key areas see the Same “exact” route taking every time. whisper they guy… no response and then hit the delete button on his account?

That does not necessarily prove it is a bot program, normal players could easily take the same route. There is more to looking for a bot program then watching.


Anyone can tell if someone is a bot or not… a human cant do the same exact route every time. Human error with turning. only a program can.

Do realize how inefficient that is? GM checkpoints don’t work, they tried that on Moon Guard, and it failed spectacularly.


You don’t know some farmers…hell, I do that too when I zone out to farm for herbs.
