We disabled /follow from use in battlegrounds to curb some of the most basic types of bots that use the command. We chose not to communicate it beforehand in attempts to catch as many bots unaware as possible. Removing /follow in battlegrounds is one small change we can make immediately to stop a number of bots, and those that choose to transition to more overt botting methods will have a much higher chance of being caught and banned.

Are there any anti BG botting advocates out there?  I can understand where people come from with hating on gatherbuddy, but BG buddy?  BG buddy = more people getting to try more classes at max level pvp, and more choice = happier players

Yes really happy when you join a bg with 70% of your team being bots and losing.

I've seen honor buddy top dmg and top heal a lot of random bgs while competing against human players.  Unlike 90% of human players, bots go for objectives and don't leave nodes undefended and screw around.  Honor Buddy/BG buddy users contribute more to random BGs than 90% of the actual people I see queing randoms

I don't understand why we're forced to do BGs in the first place.

The problem isn't bots, it's that people are forced to participate in an activity that they don't care about. If you removed the grind required to participate in arena (or at least let us earn the honor by playing arena), bots would vastly decrease.
Bye again! This game isn't fun when you don't know anyone else that still plays.

I think you forget the time where you had to win 10 bgs to get a single piece of gear and honor was updated only once a day. Then you were forced. Now with like 3 wins you can buy an item.

This nihilistic logic of easy gear let me play my game, is bad and hurts the game. It's easy enough to gear now it doesn't have to be completely trivial.

Again,
unlike 90% of human players, bots go for objectives and don't leave nodes undefended and screw around.  Honor Buddy/BG buddy users contribute more to random BGs than 90% of the actual people I see queing randoms, including myself. I don't que random bgs to go do the objectives.  If I'm in a random bg I'm just having a good time killing people having fun, going for objectives in a random bg isn't fun for me and other people at all.  If you want to compete in random bgs to win, I say go do Rated BGs and compete to win, randoms are just screw around time for the people I know that play this game, who wants to take that shit seriously?

a) If they contribute less they lose - if they lose they have to play again
B)"Randoms are screw around for the people I know that play this game". You were a random once (not so long ago) - and what is a random in the end? People in this site think that being good in pvp is somekind of gift that makes you a superior human being. I got news - it doesn't. If those "randoms" didn't play wow would be more derelict than hellgate london. Randoms are the soul of the game and most of the time they look up to "good players".

At the end, as a "better player" help them win and tutor them.

By "randoms" I didn't mean random people, I am in no way trying to put myself on a different level than every other person who plays this game no matter what skill level.  I meant Random bgs, and idk maybe I'm different than the majority here, but even when I started playing (and still to this day), I just like going in and getting some combat in, winning and objectives don't really make a difference to me.  And if there is something I can help someone with or someone asks for some advice I am always down to help if they think I can help them lol.  I try and make sure to never act elitist, unless randoms want to come rbg with us lol, then I turn people down quite often for obvious reasons.

Nonetheless. bging is fun - been doing it for years, I got many, many days played in bgs and I never get bored. Win or lose it matters not - grab 2-3 friends and you need no bots.
