I really enjoyed this article and agree with the conclusion.

Clearly botting is just too easy in Guild Wars 2 and the only people it is hurting are the legit players who will quickly begin to lose interest in the game if ArenaNet does nothing to acknowledge this problem in a bigger, more aggressive way.

HAHAH i am laughing so much.. i can't stop Gw2 Black trading Market wasnt offline for 2 weeks so that guy in there lies.. i played 3 days after launch and i could acces it with no problems and i doubt there are any bots in gw2 so far..

 

and if there are they just waste time on making bots.. pretty useless to do in gw2.

The trading post was offline for two weeks with ocassional 2 to 3 hours uptime and then it used to go offline again. So nope guy is not lying. BTC was indeed offline for majority of time for 2 weeks.

 

That was 3 weeks to a month ago. -.-

It already works so I really don't understand why you people have to start with such things now allover again.

Seriously don't you have anything else to do then trying to put down this game 24/7 by trying to find anything that can be seen as negative and come in the forums posting left and right about it?

As about bots I haven't come across ANY since the end of august. I think I saw a gold seller in the chat  2 weeks ago and they already added as a additionaly point "gold selling" under the report button in your mailbox so you don't have to report such mails as scamming anymore but directly as gold sellers.

You should also keep in mind that most of these bots or gold sellers that appeared were hacked accounts from people that don't bother to use a different password and most of all not a hard one when they register somewhere.

So if someone hacks their account on one site and goes through games trying to login, they mostly get a hit by a game or another site which leads to the personal information and more.

Due to the hack on the guildwars2guru site many got affected and their accounts were used by these botters.

They seem to have cleared most of them in the meantime though so what we see or notice is barely anything anymore.

The Critical Hit Pretzel!

9/27/12 3:17:34 AM#43

This game takes far to much skill to allow bots... oh... not really. XD

 

Seriously though, I'm not all that surprised. They made things far to simple and the dodge mechanic is more of a gimmick when it comes to a lot of world events. The fact rewards aren't really 'lost' all that much with having multiples in them makes it easy to create a bot 'zerg' much like a player zerg that trivializes the content to a point that its quickly done and all the rewards are taken. The videos were a nice touch but honestly if you just play the game its pretty easy to see this all happening in game if you look at the popular spots.

I am always wary of using Black Lion Trading for fear it might gobble my cash and not give me anything for it ,as on and off you hear people complaining it does. As for bots I spend most of the time playing and watching my own combos and trying to get and play as much as I can for the time I ahve I have not been paying any attention to others. But people do not speak I notice ,I think they may be all bots cos they do not even thank me when I rez them. Ah well game is not sub based so I guess cash is limited for these type of things.

I simple referred to topic which discusses BOT problems in detail. That is what forums are for right? discussion? my OP was never about trade post and how buggy it was for couple of weeks. I was simple replying to that person who was under denial that TP never went down since launch. Also, do i need your permission before posting on forums? if it bothers you so much stop reading maybe? last time i checked this was not a fan site. Theere are some genuine issues which people like to discuss. This is not some 'GW2 sucks' post.

 

And that last line is other example of complete denial. I for instance got one or two gold seller email in last week but i have seen around 5 to 6 bots just farming out side Divinity's Reach. And even after repeatedly reporting them they are still there. You are confusing bots with gold sellers. Only bcause gold seller spam is reduced doesn't mean bots are gone.

Haha the funny part of the read was the mention of FFXI botting.It is most certainly true i was around ffxi from day 1.

Square might have been slow to react,i agree not just botting but on warp scripts that allowed players to cheat other legit players from nodes and boss claims.

Square was however the FIRST of any developer to do anything at all and they did do a lot of things to try and curb it.It was sad because as soon as Square published they had duped rmt out of billions,other games started to follow suit.It shoudln't take one developer to push others,they SHOULD all be willing to ensure a good environment for it's players.Even the players in game should not have to beg it's developer,they shoudl take an active roll in theirgame and simply look around,botters are not hard to spot.

I know one thing for sure and yes i did play Lineage,no game will ever have more bots than when Silkroad online was in it's hayday,it was like 95% bots 5% players,no exaggeration.What bothered me the most before Sqaure started to publicize it was the MANY players who simply did not understand the problem with it.

They get a double take from players,first they sell the currency,then they get it back when the players spend it lol.That way the can take the currency and sell it to them again and again.This  drives up prices on auction so that the legit players have to grind even longer,spend more or give in and also buy from rmt.

  It's not unimportant.  I remember in Swtor a few of us that had got to Ilum first, and there was a level 15 there doing nothing but opening a chest every time it opened.  Against my wishes my guild rolled on a pve server otherwise I would have one shot that imp sov in the head.  Unfortunately GW2 doesn't have players able to weed out bots,(not owpvp) my one gripe with the game.

 

/edit the real downside for me, and one major reason I quit swtor, was the same character was there 3 weeks later.  Proactive can't hurt.

Oh great attitude there!

Do you even know that the trading post were indeed available even the first days or weeks to some?

Except if you are THAT full of yourself  thinking that only because it wasn't for you it wasn't for anyone.

To answer your question: No, you don't need "my permission" to post here nor did I ever said so.

There are also OTHER types of topics one can create but some people here tend to only jump in here and start negative threads 24/7 with straw arguments most of the time which is tiring in the meantime.

Most of all since we had all these types of topics constantly here and discussed the SAME things over and over and over again each and everyday.

So if you want to offend only because you don't like to be corrected and acting all up saying others are in denial only because they didn't came across ANY bots for weeks anymore I can't assure you that  you are not the only person on this planet you know.

If you saw a bot somewhere then it's fine with me, I however didn't and the gold emails have nothing to do with it either.

I just mentioned gold spammers and the mail because it was the only form of a hacked account I came across recently and I already mentioned in my post that most of the bots AND gold spammers came through it.

Also mentioned it as one of the solutions that were added recently (selecting Gold Seller while reporting through mail) only because someone in this very topic said that "nothing has been done" which isn't true.

Thanks for "letting me know" that gold spammers are not bots but I already knew the difference.

Maybe the next time you read a reply you should consider that not the whole reply is directed to you?

Just for your info aswell:

Queensdale is outside of divinitys reach, I was there for hours yesterday and completed the area as also did a dungeon run after. So even I run through the whole area there were no bots around at all.

It might be the case that you have some on your server, I can't tell, overgeneralizing the whole situation because of that doesn't justify the whole thing cause there are definately more than one servers in game though.

Today alone I got three gold seller letters for one character. Not sure how bad that makes the problem as for botters well economy will definitely be an issue as real money is involved in the buying of gems. They need to address this problem as real money is involved and honestly will not be surprised they get into some legal problems if they do not as it affects real money people get upset and sue.

Just as a info since I assume because of your wording that you don't know that yet, when you receive a email, you will see it with any of your characters you login cause the email is account based when it comes to items that you sent or received or player emails. :)

Only emails from hearts, dungeons or exploration seems to be character based so far.

Oh, also the article doesn't clearly define "botting" as opposed to "multiboxers".

 

I've come across quite a few multiboxers who got their first account after launch to 80 in a couple days and wanted the challenge of multiboxing 5 toons at once. These are LEGAL accounts, but the automated chumpkins are the ones that need banning.

No and they never banned tens of thousands of bots in GW1 either, maybe had a 0 extra to the end even. But please, keep shitting on things you know nothing about.

I do know about it. Maybe they weren't banning them as fast as you would like but they did.

 

You know nothing about it and are just a hater. Your purile answer shows that.

 

Rift still has them when they can get in. GW2 is the next game they focused on and when the next big one comes out they will move on.

 

As I said, if people didn't buy the gold, they wouldn't be there in the first place

You are the one to talk ehh?

Do you even know that the trading post were indeed available even the first days or weeks to some?

And i did mention that TP was on for couple of hours a day and it used to go down again. it happened for a week or so and then it went down for good for another week. But if you are going to say it was continuously avilable to some for weeks while others had zero access to TP,  then you are just bull sh** me and i am not buying it.

Except if you are THAT full of yourself  thinking that only because it wasn't for you it wasn't for anyone.

No it has nothing to do with me being full of myself especially when Anet was annoucing it on twitter and facebook and even on official forums regularly about  TP being unavilable. This was something that was universal with ocassional one to two hours of uptime a day.

To answer your question: No, you don't need "my permission" to post here nor did I ever said so.

Good we made that clear.

There are also OTHER types of topics one can create but some people here tend to only jump in here and start negative threads 24/7 with straw arguments most of the time which is tiring in the meantime.

Topic was about 'botting' till you and the other genteleman tried to derial it into something it wasn't.

Most of all since we had all these types of topics constantly here and discussed the SAME things over and over and over again each and everyday.

It is very easy to ignore the topic you don't like and focus on somethign you like? i don't think anyone forced you to read this?

So if you want to offend only because you don't like to be corrected and acting all up saying others are in denial only because they didn't came across ANY bots for weeks anymore I can't assure you that  you are not the only person on this planet you know.

I have no problem if you didn't come across any bots, but in situtaions like this you look at the majority and not the experince of minority. Just like how people claim GW2 has no bugs and one just needs to have a look at BUG SECTION to see the whole picture. Fans like you will always deny everything. No surprise there.  But reality is that BOTTING is a serious issue. And i care because i like this game.

If you saw a bot somewhere then it's fine with me, I however didn't and the gold emails have nothing to do with it either.

That is exactly what i was trying to say.

I just mentioned gold spammers and the mail because it was the only form of a hacked account I came across recently and I already mentioned in my post that most of the bots AND gold spammers came through it.

Also mentioned it as one of the solutions that were added recently (selecting Gold Seller while reporting through mail) only because someone in this very topic said that "nothing has been done" which isn't true.

Thanks for "letting me know" that gold spammers are not bots but I already knew the difference.

Maybe the next time you read a reply you should consider that not the whole reply is directed to you?

Just for your info aswell:

Queensdale is outside of divinitys reach, I was there for hours yesterday and completed the area as also did a dungeon run after. So even I run through the whole area there were no bots around at all.

It might be the case that you have some on your server, I can't tell, overgeneralizing the whole situation because of that doesn't justify the whole thing cause there are definately more than one servers in game though.

And over simplification and just denying that you didn't see bots outside Divinity(s reach so it must be not a serious problem is also not a justification. And i am aware that this situtaion differs from server to server. Or could you be kind enough to show me where i generalised and said all servers will have same experince with bots?

Thanks for derailing my topic though. How hard it is for you people not to read and just move on? you people try to down play everything that is troublesome with GW2 whether it is bugs or bots. And it is getting tiresome. If you can't handle crticism of GW2.... that is your problem not mine. This is not some 'GW2 sucks or fail' topic that you are getting all riled up.

 

OP wasn't even mine, i simply linked to the original post on official forums because i believe it is a good read on current botting problem.

I really enjoyed this article and agree with the conclusion.

Clearly botting is just too easy in Guild Wars 2 and the only people it is hurting are the legit players who will quickly begin to lose interest in the game if ArenaNet does nothing to acknowledge this problem in a bigger, more aggressive way.

They dont care. Just quit. Dont accept mediocre service. If you walked into a car dealership and asked them to test drive a car you were interested in and they tell you "No, either buy it or dont" are you going to buy a car from them?

So why would you play a game that has bots over running it? Dont play.

The people have more power in this industry than they know. Play a different game. Give a different company your money from now on and never go back to a company that gave you shit service to begin with. If more gamers played like this and accepted nothing but the best, it would happen. Shit game companies would be placed out of business never to return.

Dont accept it, just quit. Your lack of presence kills a company.

Um... Arenanet actually said the TP was down for EVERYONE when it happened, it wasn't available to certain people, what BS.

Yes it was down and they acknowledged it. How come people are lying about that now ? Sure does not give them any credibility just mad fanboism.

Oh great attitude there!

You are the one to talk ehh?

Do you even know that the trading post were indeed available even the first days or weeks to some?

And i did mention that TP was on for couple of hours a day and it used to go down again. it happened for a week or so and then it went down for good for another week. But if you are going to say it was continuously avilable to some for weeks while others had zero access to TP,  then you are just bull sh** me and i am not buying it.

OP wasn't even mine, i simply linked to the original post on official forums because i believe it is a good read on current botting problem.

You are the one to talk ehh?

- Yes, I'm the one to talk because you started it by being immediately offended only because I had a different opinion and because I said that its not entirely true that the "game" (yes you didn't say your server, you said the game) is filled with bots.

And i did mention that TP was on for couple of hours a day and it used to go down again. it happened for a week or so and then it went down for good for another week. But if you are going to say it was continuously avilable to some for weeks while others had zero access to TP,  then you are just bull sh** me and i am not buying it.

- Did I say anywhere that it was on the whole week?

the TP was indeed online in between but not everyone had access, I know it because I was wondering myself when I all of sudden had access and when I asked others in LA, they told me they didn't.

At a later point ANet indeed said that they are making it available to some for testing purposes for a few hours daily before they will be bringing it up again. So at times I had access some of the others didn't and when I didn't, they had access.

After that they started bringing it up for everyone for a few hours and taking it back down again.

Topic was about 'botting' till you and the other genteleman tried to derial it into something it wasn't.

- I also talked about botting and nothing else so why say I derailed the thread?

Wanna play the blame game now or what?

It is very easy to ignore the topic you don't like and focus on somethign you like? i don't think anyone forced you to read this?

- I posted in other topics aswell and since you were offended by my question before asking if you needed my permission, I could go ahead and ask you the same question now after what you just wrote?

I have no problem if you didn't come across any bots, but in situtaions like this you look at the majority and not the experince of minority. Just like how people claim GW2 has no bugs and one just needs to have a look at BUG SECTION to see the whole picture. Fans like you will always deny everything. No surprise there.  But reality is that BOTTING is a serious issue. And i care because i like this game.

- Aha!  With other words me and others that didn't came across bots for the last few weeks are not worthy enough to share their experience with the game on their server cause our opinion is  "minor" while you and your opinion are "major"?

I guess that's why what I say is immediately surpressed by you saying I'm in denial and "oversimplify" things right?

Probably because your exaggeration wouldn't be as valid then anymore?

And over simplification and just denying that you didn't see bots outside Divinity(s reach so it must be not a serious problem is also not a justification.

- Good job on trying to turn my own words in my mouth while turning everything else the way it suited you so you can prove your point cause I'm such a "bad person" that denies and derails everything. Laughable to say the least.

Or did you miss that I had wrote the following: It might be the case that you have some on your server, I can't tell,

It's not oversimplification when one says I was at that place on my server and it was bots free so it might be your server as also that it's not the same on every server. It's the truth.

 

If you wanna exaggerate further then go ahead and do as if half of the servers population are bots like a other guy already did.

 That's some pretty hefty advice. Quit at the first sign of a problem. Do you play many games? [mod edit]
