Blizzard Againts World of Warcraft Bots

By: Muna wa Wanjiru

For World of Warcraft gamers there is nothing more they dislike than a new gamer who uses such things as cheats and cheat codes to progress quickly through the game. Another one is these sources of annoyance and something which is banned from the World of Warcraft game site is a player who uses a World of Warcraft bot.

For those of you who are unaware of it, a game bot is an automated service or software that will emulate human behavior. By using a World of Warcraft bot, players will be able to go through the levels - or rather the more boring parts of the game - more quickly.

This means that a new player using a World of Warcraft bot will be able to level up faster, which means that they will be able to reach level 60 faster. This sort of cheating because in essence that it what using a World of Warcraft bot is, is not unnaturally frowned upon by the people at Blizzard.

In fact, not so far back in the distant past of November 15 of 2006, Blizzard banned more ten thousand gamers from World of Warcraft for using a World of Warcraft bot to take them through the leveling and the grinding processes of the game.

Not that this has necessarily made too much of a difference for the World of Warcraft bot users. Now they just try not to be caught in the act of botting. However using a World of Warcraft bot is against the Terms of Service which you agreed to when you signed on for the game.

This includes third party automating services, third party power leveling services as well as the use of hacks, data mining and cheats. If you look carefully you will see that using a bot comes under the third party automating service.

You will also find that you cannot in all good conscience share or use your account with others, nor can you trade your accounts. You can share your account your account with a minor if you are their parent or guardian but other than that it is prohibited, and is also mentioned in the World of Warcraft Terms of Service.

The problem with that, is that many people don't bother to read the Terms of Service but will just click on the agree button to get the game ball rolling.

Or if you do read it, you only read the beginning few paragraphs and skip, or skim through the rest, which could explain how you might miss the reference to not using a World of Warcraft bot or a third party automating service!

All in all, the best thing that you could do would be to skip the World of Warcraft bot to help get you through the levels and actually learn to play the game for yourself. After all, that's what you got the game for in the first place, isn't it?
