I like this game.
Mostly i play for an hour or two at a time in between work, family, gym etc.
It is very difficult to actually play it right now- I have to plan for an hour or so between when I log on and when I can actually play. It in effect halves (or more) the time I get to play.
Throw in the fact that server maintenance every week is smack in the middle of my main play time window (OCE player based in Sydney) it feels like the more committed I want to be the more I am being forced out.
Sorry I have no answers to the problems of bots, RMT etc but just wanted to share the frustrations of a genuine player who feels like we are slowly losing the war.
