"Then again, if steroids in sports is illegal, isn't botting in an "e-sport" illegal?"That's the best comparison, with one small flaw: steroids in sports are illegal. Some steroids are controlled substances in some countries, so using them at all without a perscription is a crime, but most are just banned from use in sports, by the sporting body.If you're found using them you can be banned from those sports for life. But you can't be jailed, or indeed sued. Likewise Blizzard can ban anyone they want from playing for using or making Glider, but it's an inhouse thing. Seeking legal remedies is frankly, cheating the system.
