Fun game that bots are destroying.

I have never seen so many bots in an MMO.  I thought WoW had problems but the botting in WoW is tame compared to this.  How does an MMO release in 2014 without any protection at all against warping bots?  This feels like playing a F2P game.

    I Have yet to see a bot. Where are they? I heard they just banned a bunch of gold sellers, maybe this will take care of this bot issue you talk about.

    Over on the botting forums tons of people are saying they have been banned already.

    i dont think its as bad as some games but yes they say they are fixing it but w/e im not gonna resubb for my own reasons

    i liked the pvp up to the point when theres only 2 active people really playing and the rest of the team were bots running back n forth doing nothing ..the pvp is really borked..so they are not gonna get my money and imo the game is a f2p title with the recycled task / quests that are the same over n over n over n over again ..it will be interesting what their cash shop will look like in a month from now

    There are bots and cheaters in every game, get over it or get used to it, plain and simple.

    I saw my first warping bit this morning mining...it was lame I was fighting the mob to get to the node and the bot popped in and was using his mining laser simultaneously and then popped out again in under a second. At first I thought I was seeing things, but then I saw it happen over and over again

    People claiming they have yet to see a bot either do not mine/gather or have no idea what a bot is. One can simply stand at a node and see many bots warping by.

     this^ and in pvp case they run forward on autorun straight to the middle everytime and die over n over ..or jump down to run to point A to point B and do nothing ..also there is sopose to be no auto-attack in game yet they run a script hax that makes them run around auto attacking n doing nothing else..mostly see this on engineer class

    You mean the fake gold hack videos? No sadly, these bots and hacks are real and destroying the game for a lot of people.

    Regardless that I hate bots.

    What I do wonder is why people seem suprised these things happen in today's MMORPG's?

    Everyone has acces to the internet....right? nobody actually needs to be coder/hacker of some sorts, search engine's will give you the info you need. It doesn't even have to be one of those goldscam company's. Anyone can do it thanks to our wonderfull open internet.

    Cheaters have been in most online games, don't you think these same type of cheaters would find way's to use bots for activities they might not like doing themselfs and make a hugh profit ingame due to it.

    So please gamers don't act that suprised seeing these type of things happen in online games. It sucks for sure and I do hate it if those type of people ruin a game experiance for others. But I am confident that developers do their best to counter them. But as said with this easy acces to everything it will never be easy. But have patience and don't let those bots ruin your experiance that much. Report them when possible.

    The same thing happened in FFXIV:ARR and when I saw it happen at the launch of ESO, I predicted it would happen in Wildstar as well. Looks like I was right ?

     

    The "RMT industry" has grown in size and sophistication every year. It appears that there's a huge market for 3rd party "black-market" currency and items in MMO's, and that market is growing rapidly. People are quite used-to paying extra for these things in Cash Shops now, so if there's no "official" cash shop, they simply go to the illegal ones.

     

    Unfortunately, the activities of the illegal vendors have a very noticeable effect on the game play experience.

    I'm now seeing them as well , they come zipping along farm crafting nodes and zip to the next one. They move fast too.

    I have well over 60 hours played over my three characters and I have not seen a single bot yet, though I have been spammed to death for gold.  The game is far from being destroyed... annoying at worst, IMHO.

    Who's acting surprised though, I'm not really seeing that. WHile I agree with those saying it's just something you have to expect and deal with in most MMO's. That really doesn't make their existence have any less impact on certain game mechanics, like PVP matches or node farming. While I'd never say they destroy a game, they can ruin aspects of a game, like what's widely reported here for WS, PVP matches. IF that's what you play for and you see a lot of it, your experience is going to take a hit.

    I ran into a lvl 14 in Grimvault the other day that was teleporting. Had a real name as well. Also I was attacked by (insert random letter grouping here) in Grimvault. I dont think it was bot though. It was funny trying to attack a nonflagged person. Both of them Exile I am Dominion. Both at mining nodes.

    No didn't miss it, the only part of my post toward yours was the opening line, I don't think people are acting surprised. The rest was how I feel about bots and their effect on a game.

    ^this 

    I have, however, heard call-outs stating that bots are in-game while I've been log'd; I have yet to see one though.

    As a result of it's growing popularity, I'm afraid that notting with be more prevalent. The gold spamming is enough, more bot-ing will really blow. I'm sincerely hopping that Carbine can find a good fix.

    I don't know maybe I have been blessed but I have yet to see the open world bots and yes I am a major crafter, I love crafting.  Yes there were bots in pvp and I have seen and killed many of them. 

     

    As far as people calling node harvesters that move in a flash a bot, it usually isn't, it is someone using a speed hack which is IMO worse than botting.  I did have a guildie call out that they saw a speed hacker the other day, they reported it and moved on.

     

    So stop saying the world is going to end because of the botters, because guess what they are banning them left and right.  The stupid Chinese gold farmers have to spend the money they are making to buy new accounts which will get banned too.  Again they are not hurting me one bit but if they are there let them get ban to.
