Yes, the subject has been brought up multiple times and it’s not that interesting. Yet, bots are still an unrelenting plague on this beloved game.
Tonight, I decided to try a Challenge Abyssal Dungeon (via solo-queue) for the first with over 100 gear-score above what was required. Immediately, a random group-mate noticed we had a B-L-A-T-A-N-T-L-Y obvious “bot” in the group because the inept moron botter had a random, nonsensical name that was longer than 10 characters with no guild and no title wearing the same gear they all wear. That group-mate then went on to say at the start that we’d wipe on the last boss because said botter’s programming wasn’t good enough.
Sure enough, we wiped and left.
