what kind of message was this ? they know they were abusing the game and breaking the tos, and so did their users. why are they acting like it was a blow to them personally? Now, I can't really blame them for doing this. they had the skills and they had a customer base so they took advantage of that. I don't like botting myself, but I get how it was a thing. but have some class, you knew what you were doing, there's no reason to pretend this was a hard fight that they lost with grace.good riddance to them. good to know, but I also wonder why it was posted on wowhead. it's almost like free advertisement for them. for all we know, they have a plan to do something else bot-related in the future. it wouldn't be overly farfetched. and now they have a larger audience that knows about this :\ odd move for a site dedicated to sharing wow information and (I assume) hoping the game keeps going, right? *shrugs*
You evidently missed the 'six year long legal dispute' in the first sentence...
just read comments on other boards.... .they open a new company in another country and release the bot under a different name. HB is dead, but the same with different name will come^^
This is great news. More available resources for actual players of the game.So long botters, you won't be missed.
It never bothered me that people bot, because frankly in any other industry, creating a product that automatically excludes a segment of the population according to disability is outright illegal (most bots were just combat rotations anyway from what I can tell). Combat rotation bots could arguably be used as a digital prosthetic and performance prop by folks with disabilities (hypothetically speaking anyway). Lawyers would be all over a business that wouldn't install a handicap accessible ramp, or that put up a sign saying that they wouldn't sell their services (or software in this case) to someone without two hands because it would "devalue" the experience that their two handed customers would have, if the one handed users were botting their way to being competitive. Can't imagine how angry these folks get when they see a human getting an augmented leg so they can walk again after losing one!I'm reasonably sure that the anti-botting crowd would flip out, if they were told they could only cook the food they bought EXACTLY IN THE PRESCRIBED FASHION FROM THE FOOD SELLER, because terms of service. It might "devalue" the public's opinion of their brand of fancy potato's if you tried making something low class, like french fries with them. lulz Imagine if the news headlines read "GMC cancelled hundreds of thousands of car lien contracts today because drivers were violating the terms of service, and using the vehicles in non authorized fashion. In some cases customers were customizing their cars with non authorized accessories, paint colors and more, including some that refused to utilize the vehicles in the prescribed fashion by cleaning them with only GMC approved vacuums and cleaning products, thereby turning the GMC vehicles into roving trashcans that devalued the brand, and irritated other GMC customers that did follow the terms of service to the letter. The most egregious terms of service violation was by people putting pro Hillary bumper stickers on the vehicles, as GMC terms of service specifically state that the ..."As I understand it, a completely legal way to basically do the same thing anyway, is genome sequencer available from curse. It's a basic combat rotation/ability macro spam that can be mapped to anything you're comfortable with using.
I will admit, I tried Honorbuddy for awhile with my first account, before I knew how serious it was against Blizzards' ToS. After my permaban I immediately uninstalled it and never looked at it again. But knowing how it worked, I wondered...if Blizzard hates Honorbuddy/botting so much, why not get rid of the click-to-move function which NO ONE uses except Honorbuddy botting profiles. It would render the program useless. Then I thought ...wait a minute, 9 times out of 10, people banned buy another copy of WoW and all the expansions and resub...so why would they get rid of it? They in essence make more money off the botters.
Welcome to the new world. Whre any wipe costs you 5-6 wq, where failing prepots is 10-15 minutes of your time... Moreover, prepare for a 3-4x prices increase or people in poor countries farming 24/7. Im so waiting for "omg why is everything so expensive" and people having to prep for raids for 2 hrs just to get the gold for the mats.Also, good luck on giving blizzard a reason to scan every inch of our pc.On the bright side, wow might become a more fair place, and the BG bots were annoying.
I understand most of you people are 12 years old so you wont understand what im about to say right now. But this news just means that we will see a return of the chinese "goldfarmers" and their sweatshops full of low wage workers(players). I dont know what is worse tbh, chinese goldfarmers or bots.
Wow ! I had no idea this was a thing. I am sure like other people have said, someone will slap a new name on it and open another shop in another spot and the same (minded) people will try it again. I am not sure why you would pay something to play a game for you, why even have it if you aren't going to play?
It´s freaking 2017. This could be stopped just by deprecating 32-bit client.
Someone told me on guild chat that there is cracked version without available online profiles.So you have to learn .xml to do it... Supported version 8.0.1Link:tiny.pl/gbt5vIt's still deleted and posted once again via people who have it
