That is even more surprising considering Ncsoft  and Anet had good experince with botting in GW1.

Even now in GW1, you can see one or 2 bots. Same with Rift. So, no technology is ever 100% bot proof.

Currently i am playing GW2 so i am concerned with GW2. You can name other 20 MMOS with bot problems but i could care less. If other X MMO had bots doesn't make the problem in GW2 any less relevant.

They should have added bots' to their list of  'nuisances ol old MMOS being  rid by GW2' in manifesto video. 

Can you imagine the fun you'll have in a sandbox game when hackers and asshats can effect everything you do ?

At least in a sandbox, they will be KOS'd and looted the moment they show up. 

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

It would be worse in a sandbox as it would effect the economy dramatically. There really isn't much of an economy in GW2 so I am not sure how much it matters.....

lol geez ...I think you are missing the point " We don't seem to be able to kill the hackers " if they were bot trains perhaps but I wouldn't even count on that

I've seen less bots around so hats off to ANet for that.

I had fun messing with them though as they tend to 'find target -> kill' so I'd pull some mobs and let them kill it.

Felt like a necromancer class (OH SNAP!)

 To me that is a bad thing, [mod edit]

 

Reasons being...

 

1) Buying gold to buy commander and put that annoying icon on the map and also be a retard in WvW.

2) GW2 has very little endgame as it is, these people buy gold buy full exotics, commander and then realize...now what?

3) Gold buying de-values Anets gem shop losing them money.

[mod edit]

More things will be coming - A.Net has already said more content is coming out.

 

[mod edit]

 

ALL GAMES HAVE BOTS.

[mod edit]

 [mod edit]

 

I'm glad they are putting out content but what does that have to do with my post?

 

Also yes, all games have bots, but not to this extent and GW2 also has a severe hacking problem. Teleports, flying and no-clipping for running through walls/buildings. This causes many problems in WvW.

Id try and see what you guys are talking about, but it looks like half of each of your posts is missing.

 

No heavy handed moderation here :)

For reason number 3, you'd think Arenet would be all over banning the bots, since they cut into their profits. I don't think they really know how to handle it, honestly. When it comes to a buy to play game like GW2 I don't care who buys gold, Arenanet has a cash shop so I could care less if someone else is making money. I've never played a buy to play game where there wasn't massive botting. With subscription games I see it a lot less. With GW2 though I don't know why anyone would need gold, heck there's nothing to buy at level 80 really, it's quite boring.

Banning bots wouldn't really cut into their profits.  They aren't loosing a sub, and they've already received payment for the purchase of the game.  The only thing that can be "argued" is that they lose out on potential cash shop purchases...  from bots.

I'm so glad the botters setled on Bearangers as their chosen farmer class. In the early days I used to see many more Scepter/Torch Guardians doing it than any other class. I don't feel like I have to explain myself anymore when I'm playing on my 80 Guardian.

Bots run in packs usually 4-5+ but as few as 2. I logged back in last evening (the upcoming mid-Nov content has me at least interested). In the human 1-17 zone since last night I have noted/seen more than 25 individual accounts that are botting. a couple of hours ago I moved on to the 15-25 (Kessex Hill) zones and immediate ran into 2 different groups of 5+

ANet may be banning them but they are coming back in like weeds. It's all well and good to say 'keep reporting them' but after a while (I've been reporting them since week 1) you stop bothering to 'help' in any way, even if it is as simple as filing a report. Why bother, you have to ask. 2 months in and it still isn't under control.

Actually it was rather amusing. Talking about bots is one of the few hot button topics in map chats that 'generally' cause more than 1 or 2 people to come out of the woodwork and chat in General.

Wanna know how to troll bots? Drop a Mad Kings table down, or witch cauldron and they get stuck there since they have auto loot macro running.

Can't wait to see this in EQnext and ArcheAge and WuShu. Notably is EQNext has forced pvp like most sandboxes do. Whoa what a storm of complaint threads we'll see then!

Oh and just for FYI's sake to those concerned, WoW still has gold farmers and bots and it's 7 years old. :) they are less noticable now then right before the launch of Cata when they added teleporting code that the farmers and bots were exploiting in order to fly everywhere without a mount but they are still there. It's a genre wide problem and Anet is working on it be patient.

Ahh another one of those...'X' game  has this problem so somehow it is ok if GW2 has it too. Funny how "x" game is only brought in question when fans want to hide legitimate issues plaguing GW2. otherwise any comparisons with 'x' game are forbidden.

Convenient ehh? and wasn"t GW2 meant to solve all the problems plaguing older MMOS and bring paradigm shift in genre?? guess they forgot to add botting to their manifesto.

Where are you getting you info about EQ next being forced PVP? care to share link with rest of us?

If one's a mesmer, one could put down a portal entre near to them and have the exit near something nasty - might have to get lucky with the timing and their movement, however.

Wanna know how to troll bots? Drop a Mad Kings table down, or witch cauldron and they get stuck there since they have auto loot macro running.

Is there any non-halloween way to troll them?

If one's a mesmer, one could put down a portal entre near to them and have the exit near something nasty - might have to get lucky with the timing and their movement, however.

They might never notice, because after death they ress at the teleportation stone belonging to their route.

 

But then i might really try this, as it will be amusing to see what happens.

 

So far i made reporting bots my duty, they mostly seem to belong to goldformers as they have really bad names like drss AND FGGGT
