Is Blizzard Playing a Prank on Bot Developers?

Mar 25, 2016 12:42 am

Since maintenance day this week, quite a few sudden patches have been released by Blizzard. Is this a hidden act to give bot developers a hard time during the Battleground event in World of Warcraft?
The Battlegrounds Bonus Event is taking place this weekend which provides a 200% boost to honor gained through Battlegrounds. This event is clearly a botter's paradise, but to their great disappointment, Blizzard has been releasing so-called ninja patches in the last few days.

These patches require bot developers to constantly update their products accordingly, preventing their subscribers from botting. It might just be a coincidence, but many claim it to be an act against botters who are attempting to exploit the BG bonus event. If it is really the case then Blizzard deserves a round of applause for its creativity in battling bot developers.

After a bit of research, I looked around for some of the popular bot-developing sites and indeed they are having plenty of issues with keeping up which perhaps will result in a far more enjoyable Battleground Bonus Event weekend, that could finally end up being bot-free. If you guys got some catching up to do with PvP gear, it seems like the right time to do a few BG runs.

"The Battlegrounds Bonus Event is underway. Through the end of Monday, you’ll have a constant +200% boost to your honor gains from Battleground objectives and wins. Keep an eye out for the event-only quest “A Call to Battle”, which rewards 500 Conquest Points above your maximum when you win four Battlegrounds." - Blizzard

I am pretty sure Blizzard will keep coming up with various ideas that can efficiently counter bot developers, and these recently released ninja patches are indeed causing plenty of headaches for them.
