How many people in this thread who are arguing that leveling only Honorbuddy users believe that blizzard has a MASSIVE team working on anything related to PvP or anything like this?
Let's be real here. What we know is they flagged well over 100,000 accounts and banned them. I don't know the method of how, and it appears most of you don't but for arguements sake lets say the number was 115k flagged accounts for possible HB use. Blizzard has like 5k employees, I'm sure most of them are jerking off watching cat videos, working on the next xpac, working on the new game they have coming out, and some doing whatever the fuck else. I imagine the team they assigned to this was probably 10-15 people, but since most of you will say I'm just wrong because I'm not blindly agreeing with you, let's say they managed to assign from all their offices and take away from the pool of working on new games, or how to squeeze more money out of WoW, Diablo, SC, HS, HOTS etc, that it's 100.
So they have 115k, flagged accounts (hell the original number of possible accounts might have been massive?), and you guys are saying they should have combed just for cheaters. So what's the average arena player play in arenas? Hundreds of games by now? Anyone with full gear has like 150 or so played and then plays more after wading through that shit. Most people I meet have 500+ games played. So let's lowball it for you and say of all arena players in that mix along with ones who don't even dabble, that the average games played come out to like 150.
So that's like 17,250,000 arena games played. Then you gotta figure out where to draw the line, who do you ban? Anyone who used even 1 time? Anyone who used for 3 games? Anyone who did it for a whole month straight without stopping? Anyone with 10%+ games played doing it? I mean if you start banning only people who used it for a whole month, a shit load will avoid the wave and then what happens "oh look 100 botters got banned across the globe because most users found the pause function and didn't use it every single game fucking blizzard... always half assed, last season they took 5 weeks to end the season to murderdeathkill all win traders and pilots and got 5 people... way to do it again blizzard."
So they gotta get em all you know. They want to make a statement, that much is obvious. So all of you wanting only kickbotters, and routine users who have used it more than once to get banned? Now those 100 people now have to comb through 17 million games looking for kick patterns across each game because oyu know, sometimes they pause their bots... which was the whole point I'm assuming. I mean shit I once played Cupid with a ret, I didn't figure out he was a botting scumlord for 20 games because he ONLY used his bot against rogues for BOP on blinds. It took me so long because he kept randomly BOPing me. Didn't even notice until I saw blind get used on my CD tracker at the same time he BOPs, debuff didn't even show up and I kicked him. So if they go comb like you want... gl, this seasons bans will take years and years.
I personally don't have an issue with HB for leveling... unless you had to pay for it (idk did you have to buy it?) because I mean that's supporting the very people who are ruining what you want fixed. I get it, I fucking hate leveling but do it because I like my account and no other reason. But how do you expect them to take out most of the botters in any other way when you already know how blizzard operates? Sure they could hire on 10k more people for this one task, but what business men would ever sign off on that? I won't brag, laugh, spit, or antagonize anyone who got hit just because you leveled with it, but at the same time I can't exactly shed any tears because this is the only way blizzard operates, and deep down we all fucking knew it.
