Inb4 they actually hire someone who does arena in the game he helps developing, instead of someone who apparently spends his free time screenshotting "epic ashran battles".

How is ashran bad if there's big epic battles?

you know you reached the lowest of lows when the people who made the bots tell you its immoral to use the bot the way you're using it

Tldr is that it'll autoclose itself when you enter arena. Get fucked the few of you who didn't get banned, but used the bot in arena :]

Good stuff, maybe fakecasting will actually do shit versus all those turbos without their autopilot. Reading through that topic has been an absolute joy though - "amg, fuk u bossland, only noobs complained about botting arena", ROFL. Well, get fucked.

He rode the wave of goodness that was created by Kalgan and was the first one to slowly ruin the game. Don't ever forget he is the one that gave dispel to every healer and removed it from sp/ret, handed out self heals like cookies and started the road towards complete homogenization we are on right now.
this is factually wrong

most people refer to WotLK as the best expansion

WotLK is also the expansion that had the best sub numbers/statistics

Ghostcrawler was the lead systems designer for that expansion

wave of goodness created by Kalgan and Tigole was shit like mace stun and a meta that implied that each class will have only 1 viable arena spec (never actually happened and several classes were more or less unplayable in arena), pvp trinket that removed only 3 types of effects (until later in tbc), only 2 classes with 50% mortal strike debuffs (making them mandatory to have for a viable comp, outside of vipersting/manadrain "run you dry" setups that people figured out way later), 2v2s that lasted 4+ hours being an accepted part of the game, and various other amazing perks. i mean, PvE (both solo and raid stuff) had just as many examples of utterly terrible design

people really forget how actually SHIT vanilla and TBC were gameplay-wise. don't get me wrong, my best times in this game were mostly in TBC, but that doesn't mean the designs were actually good. it was a different time. this doesn't mean that Kalgan or Tigole are bad game designers either - someone had to do the mistakes to learn from.

also you have to understand what 'lead systems design' actually implies. for example, wow has pretty decent core gameplay, what sucks are mostly the systems - e.g. 4 difficulties of the exact same instance being a pretty fucking shit idea. or there being no team charters, which in turn allows you to just log on whatever class/alt you have and just instantly queue your fotm setup at no penalty whatsoever, which results in everybody just playing fotm shit exclusively. or s10 having good gameplay but being completely ruined by the matchmaking/ladder system around it - this is a legit mistake you could credit to GC. but he did design a lot of good shit too.

its kind of idiotic to praise WotLK as the best thing ever and then go hate on the dude that was heavily involved in making it what it was. he's also the only dev to interact this closely with the community, and he's the REASON there's so many blue posts daily and devs just casually talking to us on twitter - he's the one who set this example. it must suck to give so much to a community only to receive a hate bandwagon in response. no wonder he left.

If he still worked for blizzard im pretty sure warriors would have gotten killing spree & red buff the first season of WoD instead of rogues :)

You're wrong.

Getting rid of nerds who cheat makes the game better for those who don't cheat. Kinda simple.

Clearly seems to not matter to you, judging by how much you have clearly not been spam posting in this thread ;)

People in this thread are fucking hilarious. When you get as much data as they do here(since they banned thousands of people) you do not trudge through this manually(trust me i'm a DBA, if u dont find a good way to do it u dont do it at all) to check if the bot was used for this or that.

Most likely they found a way to detect this with warden. They let it pass for like a month or something, making sure they get a lot of people that's botting and bam they ban everyone. They don't check people to see what they used the bot for, they just saw via warden someone was using a bot/third party program which they have identified as bad and they banned you. That's it. If they got a false positive that person will appeal and they will review that case individually.

And who the fuck are u Regent to say if this is bad for them or not? lol you don't think a multi billion dollar company have people evaluating the effect of losing "9 million dollars of revenue" as you state over banning a couple of thousand bots? Hell Blizzard have in the past many times taken the moral high ground over money in certain cases(less so today but... hell maybe they said fuck the money and instead fuck the cheaters)

Stop being fucking salty. You used a bot, you got banned. Shit happens. Buy a new account or get over yourself. You haven't got the faintest idea of how this would work technically or from a business perspective.

If you can't be bothered to level, you need to move on from this game. Blizzard is doing the community a favor banning any and all bots.

lets be honest who hasnt botted a few levels overnight? the game is shit enough without having to level chars. all the kickbotters get reported so why not just ban the reported people instead of the innocent people
you have an incredibly amusing definition of innocent :)
