Those numbers are crazy. 2k bot reports per hours down to 20 now. Nice.

I've certainly felt this as the trading post prices went up, doubled since the last month.

It hasn't. The server i'm on is not full and there are people in all zones and my guild has 50-70 active members at the same time.

Sixty dollars per box right?  That's over two million bucks worth of accounts.

Wow, thats alot of illegal gold buyers to keep that market up like that. Alot of hacked accounts would be included in there though, so the sellers arent all buying those boxs.

Botters dont use their own accounts. They hack an account then use it to bot.

So, when the people who had their accounts hacked find out and get unbanned they will get thier accounts back for free. The botters will move on and hack someone elses account and the cycle will continue.
