The thing I don't understand about the "the game made me do it" type of argument is: if the game is that bad, that boring...why play?Now, I had fun leveling a character up in WoW, so maybe that is part of my problem. But I have also tried Everquest 2 and, when I decided I did not like the customer support and some of the problems with gameplay, I quit. I may have been a drop in the bucket, taking my one account away, but every rainstorm has to start somewhere.If people are truly that bored with WoW, if they really think it is that broken, they should quit. I don't see the point in handing your account over to a bot rather than moving to a game where you *can* have fun.

The problem is that World of Warcraft isn't just one game. There's the solo game. There's the 5-man game. There's the PvP game, and there's the raiding game. It's perfectly possible for someone to love one of them and hate the rest. For example, I generally intensely dislike the PvP game. I love the 5-man game, I've barely played the raiding game, and I don't mind the soloing game, although it's wearing a bit thin. The problem is that, in many cases, you have to play one of the games to get to another one. For example, it's very, very hard to find non-boosted groups below level 70 on many servers these days. If I want to play the 5-man game or the raiding game, I need to spend 200 hours playing the solo game (and arguably some time playing the PvP game too). If I loved the 5-man game but hated the solo game, I could see why I'd consider botting. 200 hours is a lot of time to spend on something you don't like to get to do something you do.
