More WoW H@x0rs Banned

The World of Warcraft Community Site has word on some more bans in Blizzard's just-launched MMORPG based on the use of bots (thanks Cefu). Presumably most of the impacted users will return to their games soon to learn of their fate. Word is: "The use of bots is a violation of the World of Warcraft Terms of Use and is absolutely prohibited. Therefore, the accounts identified as having used bots have been banned."

Nothing wrong with bots or ebays.

The biggest problem with MMORPGS are pathetic Whiners [Why did he get!!.. *grief**whine*].. and most of them are American. :-)

Watching some mmorpg players play I can see how it would be hard to tell them from bots. Much of their time seems to be spent doing stuff that a small script could do just as well.

And add in the fact that people can sell this crap for actual money, and thats a good incentive for smart people to make bots.

If wow had seriously thought of their users, they would have found a way to tolerate bots and incorporate them.

This is has to be one of the most idiotic and retarded idea I have ever heard of.

Sorry to say this but, Bots on a MMORPG is genius. I mean, there's a fricken ton of tedium involved in most mmorpg games. The fact that there's auto-run even helps to cloud this issue. If autorun can help me to get from A-B, then why don't i install X to get me from A-X?

Besdies, bots could be useful, i.e. bots to produce items / crap etc.

However, I totally understand why bots are bad: unfair advantage to players who use bots, or a possible shift in the fantasy economics (massive depreciation of armor prices due to supply).

If wow had seriously thought of their users, they would have found a way to tolerate bots and incorporate them. If there's another pre-installed, easy to use option for an illegal activity, that's sufficiently comparable, people will switch and avoid the hassle.

It's better to announce them than to have a ton of people saying "wtf, you never said i couldnt' use a bot" every damn day. Most mmos don't allow bots. It just looks like Blizzard is one of the only ones enforcing their rules, unlike certain other major-francise-in-a-galaxy-far-far-away mmos.

Are they going to announce every ban they make like this? I'd quite like a filtering option for my news if this is the case.

I hope they keep announcing them. Maybe cheaters will get the message. Hacks, dupe methods, bots, Ebay sellers etc have plagued other MMO's and those companies have done little to curb the problem, and any effort they did make was rarely made public. EQ for example has had bot problems for years now, I've even seen GM's knowing full well it was a bot they were looking at (Mages/Enchanter combo camping brownies in lesser Faydark), and they did fuck all about it and just let it happen, even though it was against their own rules.
