Savvy players use bots which run in the background to automate actions in the World of Warcraft. This is called botting. Video farms display the story of orcs and humans clashing for dominance in the Warcraft universe. For those unfamiliar with WoW, it is a multiplayer online role-playing game.
The first of this series in Warcraft is:
Orcs & Humans.
This multiplayer allows 2 players to battle one another over 20 custom maps. Fierce combat is supported for cross-platform in the IBM-PC and Macintosh versions to determine who is supreme overlord. With such a vast array players use bots to handle tasks such as getting hold of resources or mobs. Bots relate to performance optimization, searching rare mobs, advancing mesh system, intelligent pathfinding, chat monitoring and so on. While using bots is against the terms of service, it has been allowed in the warcraft universe.
However, the creator of the series, Blizzard recently have laid down the law by issuing over 100,000 six-months bans to those found cheating with bots. The hardest hit has been some of the better known bots. Here is a list.
The Honorbuddy bot:
It is a paid service which has the most stable and reliable pathfinding function.
It is one of the most efficient, if not the most efficient bot out there using proxies between accounts.
It is good but missing features. It is also another paid option for the heroic players of the game.
Here are some tips:
Using bots will not get anyone in trouble unless they are being obnoxious by annoying others. Unfortunately using whole armies of bots for 24hrs every day will increase chances of getting banned. However, having up to date software and occasional use of bots ensure that one will never be found out. Who said cheating in games is not legal everywhere in the world? Let the orcs v. humans settle the fate of the world.
