Ever since the game came up, Orr has been crowded with bots. Jokingly I always called the road from Pagga's Post to the Cursed Shore the "botter road"
It has never been much of an issue - I rightclicked them and reported. I must have gotten hundreds banned over the last year. Usually it takes 14 days for Anet to ban them - but not anymore.
I see the same bots day by day now. Slaying zombies in Orr 24/7 and harvesting the nodes around.
I only just bumped into someone who I thought had been banned months ago - he simply switched areas and is botting in Gendarra instead, where detection is less likely. He isn't even the only one - the eastern woods of Blazeridge Steppes are pretty popular.
So what has happened? Why does it look like Anet stopped banning for botting?
