I feel as if they are behind the bots.
Rmters don’t get Perma banned because they know they are customers who pay botters and in-game cashshop, those botters could just be Amazon, artificially inflating the game everytime there is a major update/announcement. I mean, they aren’t in any rush to ban bots seeing as the same bots in party finder have been there since Argos (Fairyheihei). And funny enough every bot in party finder advertises AOEAH. They could’ve easily just banned all of those bots. Instead they probably do intentional bans on innocent players while at the same time logging off their bots to say “we did a ban wave”. Maybe they thought they could reach 1 million again but had to stop because the queues we’re affecting more players daily. I mean after the ban wave you can still see there is a straight line on the steam charts, af if people don’t log off, as if they left not all but their main bots that have been there for months now(Fairyheihei) to still keep making revenue on the “third party websites”.
And it’s just funny, I might be wrong but with everything that has happened and how they “respond” to everything it looks plausible.
