My little "15 minute warm-up" I usually do, this morning was this little sketch of my character...Which some might guess if they've seen the Warcraft news... I got the 6 month ban. xD It's a huge thing for WoW right now to have so many bans.
The irony is, in the last two months when they caught everyone for botting, all I did was use the bot a couple times to mill large stacks of herbs for me so I didn't have to sit there pressing the freaking button 50 thousand times! Haha (Which now they announced they were fixing with the ability to mass mill so...) I kind of never thought in a million years someone would think, "That dude was milling for 10 minutes straight. He must be a BOT". Makes me wish I'd done more with it to at least farm some of the achievements or something so that I could feel like I got something for my punishment.
Ah well, not much of a loss for me. I haven't been raiding due to time issues, so it's like a forced vacation from the game.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of the bans are for people like me that barely even used it. Honestly, I'd never thought to actually use the BOT for much, cause I didn't want to risk it being noticeable. But, since they caught everyone by scanning their computers to see if you used the program, they actually have no idea who used it for what. It's just a, "Did you touch the program? Banned." Which is probably why it's only 6 months. There's no way to know and it would be stupid of them to perma-ban that many people who barely even did anything. If I hold anything against them (or call them genius for from a business standpoint) it's that they waited to hand this out until awhile after the WoW tokens had been released. I mean, if any people farmed on their BOT at all, they probably already bought game time, cause they could afford it. So now Blizz has all that money even if those people can't play. I know I already have game time through next year, even if mine has nothing to do with the BOT. I'm just an Auction House stock market player and love my TradeSkillMaster. Buy low, sell high!
I actually first tried my BOT back in the day to solve the problem of lack of time, yet commitment to my guild on a dead realm that they couldn't even come close to finding a healers that could do my numbers. I used it to heal trash in raids between bosses, so I could draw in the other window. It couldn't heal worth a flip. It used mana like crap and never knew when to pre-HOT...so...it was good for trash basically. (And even then I knew certain packs I had to help) But that's what I needed. Extra time to work. And as for DPS and the bot, well...I could out DPS the bot by like 30% or more. (Maybe just because I was good at DOT snapshotting?) It beat my dps on my alt DK, but...I just chalked it up to being a shitty DK.
