      talk about a hypocrite...who are you to tell people how they should bot? Your botting is better than ours? Actually my "Bot" is normally at the top in dmg and HK's and plays the objective better than most players because the it is setup correctly. Quit your whining or stop botting all together then whine at least.

      /signed Disable BGBuddy until it is considerably more improved. I feel as if this is forcing Blizzard to aim its scopes directly at HB.

      leetdemon: stop accuse be with this kind of manipulating replies. I just said, that doesn't make any sense to run any unattended bot in "challenging" areas (bgs, dungeons), where are other REAL players. and please stop stupid arguing about dmg done. you know, is botting and botting..
      Snazzyjdawg: yeah, you got it. thanks for support.

      It's crazy how a few years ago when people were botting everyone was so afraid to bot around other actual players... People would only bot on low pop realms, they'd use plugins that would stealth/dc their toon if another player was within x yards... I just find it fascinating how people just don't give a shit anymore... if you BGBuddy you might as well make your toons name IAMABOTLOLZ.

      Yea and even in Arena you can tell who is using who's CC I never ever botted in bg's due to the size of how many people are botting it like you said over the last few years its like 80% are now botters in bgs, I am also starting to see more dungeon botters who also dont give a shit. Might aswell make HB free and see what % of wow players will bot haha.

      Context is everything lol. Those hundreds of threads he is referring to are not here, they are on the official wow forums complaining about bots.

      You aint doing **** if you are using bg buddy as a botbase.

      No one cares or talks about playing by hand here. You cant setup bg buddy so at least read the topic before replying.

      This has to stop, bg botting is out of controll. I've always played bg's legit, anything other is to risky. I see you pathing the same way, why would you even risk your account for some honnor? I've botted safe for the time I've used this bot, you bg bot should do the same. This is the only time I've ever felt the need to post or speak out. Please stop, you will be the end off us all.

      I'm one of those nooblet botters.
      I've played WoW since BC and loved to do battlegrounds until around mid Cata, and I'd do them a-lot, it's mostly all i'd do in WoW. I can't say I stopped doing BG's in Cata because of the bots. But I can say that I today won't do BG's in MoP because of them, unless it's RBG's. Boting isn't meant to ruin fun for players, at least not in a way which is blatantly obvious; which it is today. A year ago, the last time I was playing the game.. since I needed honor, I'd joined the masses, since battlegrounds had become a joke. Good for business.. maybe. Potentially very bad though, heh, yeah...

      And with all of the talk on these forums regarding: Don't do this, don't do that.. that'll get you banned, bot smart etc. The irony.

      And to anyone who doesn't want to approach this thread reasonably. Maybe here's some food for thought.

      -The reason why players are pissed off at bots in PvP is primarily because they're in those zones to face other players, ik.. it's that simple, but maybe you've over looked this fact? It's not primarily because the bot AI sucks, or that it's better than the average player, IT-IS-BECAUSE,,,, THEY-ARE-NOT,,,, THERE-TO-PVE! They -EXPECT- to face players, and when they DON'T; WoW is a social game.

      If you keep getting hurt by a double edged sword, the best solution is to put it down. BGBuddy isn't as bad as going all out grinding or farming, but it does have it's obvious issues. There are many who can get a good harmony between routine and hand-picked battlegrounds to get it to play acceptably, like myself. Botting in battlegrounds is never going to be very great, as it's obviously not human looking. You can get it to be "passable" but that's still going to take a very complex botbase which handles all of the different scenarios in each respective BG. Intelligent movement, in itself, is going to be an insane hurdle.

      1. How should it decide to move around, especially considering other bots?
      2. Should it keep role in mind, or not? If there's a healer bot should it try to be where the other healers aren't or are? Does it glue itself to a tank or go offensive?
      3. Should it be proactive in achieving battleground mechanics? If so where's the line?
      Answering one of those wrong can make you look incredibly stupid and ruin lots of games. The current BGBuddy can be either a gift to the opposing faction or a curse to yours, but it doesn't "need to be stopped". They obviously know it sucks, but I the developers are always busy, especially with WoD. Perhaps you can make your own bot and reap in the community donations? Or make it private and enjoy your own personal battleground farmer. The bot surely gives you the tools to do it.

      i guess you dont get it. YOu dont advertise private bot base bc its against the rules. you dont advertise them so they stay private.

      Problem with the big private BG botbase, it still uses HB Mesh navigation, so while it may perform objectives better than BGBUDDY, it will still run a bot train going from A to B because there is no way to set custom routes with HB like you could back in the day with Pirox.

      Unless of course you aren't using it and are using something else?

      however there are ways to modify start position and objective positions for both BGBUDDY and BGBOT in order to get out of the bot train...it just takes a bit of intelligence to do it.

      How about you learn to read, since the only thing that realy applies here, is just that. This thread is about bg buddy, nothing else.

      And u want to learn me how to bot. I got banned once in my 3 years of botting. And funny thing is, this was because of bg buddy bg botting!

      This 100 %

      Cant agree, but hey opninions differ. This botbase needs to be stopped, when all know it sucks so hard and this is one of the reasons if not the biggest one
      blizzard is targetting the bot, shut it down.

      Taking this out, or chaning it, does not change the fact that you will be running same paths and in trains again right after. Not at the start, but in de end... you look like a tool again.

      I joined bg's and followed the masse, i get wispers allr and in chat also, namecalling and asking to report.

      I always answer, since im on tyrael. But it shows how easy its been spotted nowadays and a report is just 2 clicks and a note.

      In the end, if you want to bot bg, do it. I dont give 2 cents. I just care since the pvp community is moaning like a bitch and something is going to happen.

      Why not take the threat away ( if any exists ) and let it cool down. Then in the end, if bg buddy could receive some love, if any, restart it ?

      What if, this warden chance is about bots in bg instead of duping or what not, and the hammer strikes upon thousands soon. Is that worth it?

      Sure, all are responsable for their account but if you keep a non functioning botbase open while u know it sucks monkey balls, i think you got some responsability as well.

      The title of the thread is this Battleground bots out of control, should something be done and again you obviously dont know how to use your brain to make your bgbuddy differ from everyone elses because you can.....if you are going to different objectives based off the bots triggers you wont be near anyone else using the bot. geezus.
      • pro tip Change around the coords of the hotspots ie make lumbermill into farm etc...

      who said anything about tyrael? There are many other bg bots out there including 2-3 more botbases for HB alone.

      Im out of this convo, you are clearly stupid.

      There is only 1 automated bgbot and that is bg buddy. Talking about the rest does not make any sense here.

      Its a topic about the automated bots... man.. if i only had a hammer.....

      Bg farmer, from millz is completely different and has nothing to do with the bot trains. as long as its priced and not for the masse.
