100,000 User Accounts Banned for Bot Use - World of Warcraft - MMORPG.com

Blizzard is taking an aggressive stance against players using "honor bot" programs and has recently banned over 100,000 user accounts for six months for violating the Terms of Use. Community manager Bashiok took to the forums to explain Blizzard's reasons for the ban stating that a fair and equitable play experience is paramount.

Read the forum thread created by Bashiok on the World of Warcraft forum.

Check out the video below for an example of the issue in a random battleground packed with two teams of bots. (warning: explicit language). You'll love it!
