I will continue to use the bot and I don't care if it "kills" games. =P There are plenty of games that have these systems in place that have been around for years.

Yeah you mean games who "fail" and are pretty much dead.
Seriously I love how all these casuals who dislike to kill 240 mobs per day (on average) want the easy way with AFKing and say they don't "care" if the game dies, as in, no fun or any interaction anymore. Why do you even play? Do you find some satisfaction that you improve a number (soul power) by being AFK? LOL.
There's no fun in it, no interaction with other players to farm those mobs, no KS, no drama, nothing satisfactory. If all you play this game for is to get some numbers up, then I don't know what to say to you, but that's not fun and you know it. Go play some single player game and stop wasting time here and support ruining the game for us who enjoy it

With the legal botting now officially implemented, I wanted to see where everyone stood on the this issue. I was shocked to see the ratio of people in favour of it as opposed to not (approximately 4:1, from pure observation in-game).
Personally, I'm against it. If I wanted to play with bots, I'd play a single player game. Using the bot in an instance, even in GT would be unacceptable to me. I can understand that people don't have time to do Dragon Orders and wanted to bot that when they are asleep or at work or something. If you are doing that, it'd be nice if you would exercise some courtesy and go to the Nightfall area with the mobs that you need and not to Breeze Valley's Farm. I don't want to compete with bots farming soul power there 24/7. There are only 10 realms, so I do believe that the 24/7 soul power farming will be an issue. And just a warning that if I see you there while I want to do my Dragon Orders, I will move you so that you're AFKing for nothing, then continue with my Dragon Orders.
Having said that, I don't believe that there ever would have been a need for a bot if PWE had come up with a better implementation for the Vice/Virtue system - one that doesn't require grinding in order to level it up. How would they do this? I don't know - I'm not a game designer. Maybe they could have rewarded a lot more soul power for doing events and instances... Or even very small amounts in AFK training. Again, I'm not a game designer - those are just a couple of ideas. I know people will argue that this is not grinding, but I believe that staying in the same spot and killing the same mobs for hours (or however long you choose) IS grinding. It may not be hardcore grinding like some other games but it's still grinding nonetheless.
I will wait and see how much this botting affects people running instances and such before I decide whether or not I want to stay. But for now, I'll just not accept any botters into my parties. That was my opinion, how do you guys feel about this new legal botting?

Hi Hulkie (Serayah here)
Possible solutions I see:
-remove botting from instances
-put a permanent un-removable (unless you want to turn them off in your own UI) tag above a toons head if they're set to auto
-make all decisions to auto be verified by the party leader (like the invite system, so you know who's botting, but can allow it if it's consensual)
-make it only usable in certain areas (e.g. not in the prime group farm spots of the training ground)
Final current view: I like the idea of it, as it DOES make the game more approachable for the casual player, but to give everyone free reign over it is way too generous, and I think it may cause problems. I will wait to give my final verdict after a week or two, and I think we may see some tweaks to the system in that time.

No I never wanted the bot so yes I complain now, why please those who wanted bot and make the rest angry?
I don't give one **** about Dragon Orders, it is so funny I hear about dragon order this dragon order that from those people who were QQing so much of having no bot... but DO's aren't even my issue, you don't realize people will abuse the bot system and grind non stop, maybe power level alts (saw a train of 4 ppl with similar names just today) with dangerous bounties, and there will be 0 PvP or any interaction outside instances... because people will always just afk bot. Why waste your time having "fun" when you can just afk bot?
Memory Berries already killed a lot of PvP like wester/reeves, due to how much exp they give compared to normal quests, now you add a stupid bot for crybabies >.>

nah I read a good handful of the posts, including yours, and alot of people seem to be against it. "Shame on me" i guess, nayaru. I work full time and was losing interest in the game because the free time I had was spent doing DO's just to prevent falling behind everyone else in soul power. I was no longer enjoying the game. But with this new system, PWE has secured my interest. Great job PWE xD. It seems as though the only people against botting are the ones who dont have other obligations irl and dont mind being a mindless drone for 7 DO's a week + daily orders. but, Shame on me.
