This is really both a technical and in-game problem. I was wondering how seriously Blizzard take this bot problem?
I ask this because yesterday I reported a player for cheating (and named 4 others) that were obviously just killing bats in Revendreth constantly in a quest area so no-one could do the quest, and not only do I find that nothing has been done about them, but they are STILL there a day later doing it!
Not only that, but when my partner checked the WoW Armory to find details on these players (and guilds attached to at least one of them), they only existed on WoW Classic! How can there be players in the game that don’t actually exist? I don’t know about anyone else, but if people can have characters in the game that don’t exist (according to the armory), how safe are our characters in the game from being hacked, even if we have authenticators?
