1. Sub is sub, money smells the same if it's from botter or a good player.
2. Bots are the only thing keeping AH in check. Without them, markets would collapse because 90% ppl only have production professions and don't bother getting any gathering one, if they can just buy cheap crap from botters and their AH alts..
I've personally reported quite a few of them, but it didn't have any lengthly response (aka the bot was offline for like 2 days and then just continued where he left..)
Maybe, just maybe, if they started giving 50 euro penalties to botters, maybe they would rather stop than being caught.. but yes.. the auction would collapse the day after.. so not gonna happen.
Blizzard doesnt care about people botting,as long as the bots pay they subscribtion fee.This in explicitely clear by know.
The call of the world of money.
This is such bull.
As Blizzard has been saying like a thousand times, the loss of subs from people who leave due to botting is way higher then the amount of actual bot accounts. In other words, by letting bots stay, they would loose subs from disgruntled players, and with it money.
OP, noone can tell how long they work on a report. But do be aware that at times a person lies, and doesn't actually bot. And thats more comon then people think.
The same goes for the PvP "bots". Lots of those don't use a bot at all, but simply leech. They might stand at the Av entrance not participating, but they do not use a botting program. And leeching is still bad and punishable mind you.
Well, I don't think that's quite right. I make most of my gold from crafting, and I have the required gathering profession. While the gathering items are cheap enough I will stockpile them. If they break over a set amount and I need some. I got get it myself.12/11/2012 14:34Posted by Phaonis2. Bots are the only thing keeping AH in check.

Nah the AH wouldn't collapse. There'd just be a period of adjustment.
