Blizzard’s World of Warcraft developers regularly ban players for cheating. This week, the popular MMORPG implemented its biggest disciplinary move yet. In one quick move, WoW developers banned 100,000 players.
Players were banned from the game for six months due to their usage of the program called Honorbuddy. Honorbuddy is a bot program that automatically performs numerous tasks in the game for the players. The bot performs simple tasks in place of the player, such as performing archaeology digs and searching for crafting materials. In addition, the bot also autopilots players through battlegrounds and dungeons. Honorbuddy allows the characters to earn rewards despite their players not controlling these characters.
With the busy and moribund life, we all are unable to do it. As per the growing demand, the makers of different apps were quite perplexed, as I feel because they weren’t able to understand that what could make people engage themselves with their smartphones more. live cricket streaming
The game is full of time-consuming tasks. For example, players need numerous ore to level up their blacksmithing skills and some Honor to buy new player-versus-player gear. The player Garrisons introduced also give players more tasks to accomplish.
Frustrated players then resort to program that allow them to make progress effortlessly. With Honorbuddy, players devote more time to other in-game activities. According to the program’s website, over 200,000 users are currently registered. With the recent ban, Blizzard suggest their capability of finding players using Honorbuddy.
“It seems like Honorbuddy was detected, we are not sure, but looking at the BAN THREADS, we think that its the most likely option [at the moment],” an Honorbuddy developer said on that service’s forums. “We are sorry for all your lost WOW Accounts, hopefully you can use them again after the 6 months ban is lifted. I have read here in the forums a bit, a lot of the accounts where 10 years old. This is a pity. We always say, do not use your valuable accounts as the risk is always there.”
The Honorbuddy developers temporarily closed their services. But the program is not willing to admit defeat yet: “We want to be offering Honorbuddy as soon as possible. Right now, we have no news for you. Please do bear with us – immediately we have news we will share it.”
