i completely disagree with your analysis of pvp botting, your conclusion if flawed. simply because in the smaller BGs, havinh 1 person on your team not playing can change the balance of the whole game. so just becuase this player isnt gaining pvp skill, they are still costing the rest of us honor and tokens. which i find out weighs them not gaining skill.

I agree, it is really frustrating. I wish Blizzard would add some kind of penalty other than the honor and mark debuff when someone is reported AFK. I would suggest something where if a toon has been reported in 2 or 3 consecutive battlegrounds, then they get a debuff that prevents them from queuing for a day or so.

It really doesnt matter because if someone is just there to get honor, they will do it. When I wanted my welface epics I sat in bgs and stealthed while everyone else fought gaining me honor on top of my bonus honor. And I dont even know if I had a negative impact on the bg result. I was always about 70/30 on the win side because our faction generally performs well on my server. Had my full season one epics in 3 days. The point is that whether your a bot or not you still get the same results. If there is someone there camping primals for 18 hours or whatever are you still mad as long as its actually someone sitting there? One time I bought every primal air that was on the AH and listed them all for 20g higher. And they sold. Because people will pay to have their materials immediately. You don't need to bot to exploit the economy. Botting has little effect on game play or the economy. I have never been effected by a botter and I'm glad that they are in game to provide me with materials. Blizzard should say that they will ban you for botting but never actually do anything about it. That way everyone can still cry about how awful it is, but others can bot away and not have to worry about having their accounts stolen so gold sellers can use them for profit, like explained in a recent wowinsider article.

I agree with Zumwalah and disagree with you. Just one or two players botting out on the greens in Arathi Basin makes a HUGE difference to the outcome of the game. In fact, of all BG's. Yes, they PERSONALLY don't get any PvP skills, but in the meantime those of us working hard to win suffer as a result.
