I got kicked from an endgame LS for refusing to use a add on claim bot aka i refused to cheat and respected other players.
OH we should just program bots to grind our characters while were at work!
Why don't we all just get brain surgery and become mindless zombies?
Enough said about bots?
Touching on this, it comes down to the players behind them being the issue, and thats something i stress about alot of issues with many games out there
focusing on 14, we can look at the current market situation
Lets look at the situation with everyone putting their retainers only in the abttlecraft ward. Was that a player issue or something thats SEs fault. Well of course, with a search function, the players who do it, its their fault.
When it comes to UI addons, its the same thing
If SE doesnt allow them, its SEs fault for the game not being UI friendly
If SE does allow them, and players abuse them, its SEs fault for allowing them to be used at all and causing the situation
everything we look at in MMOs comes down to that same universal truth, its ALWAYS the companies fault and no one else is ever expected to take responsibility for variables that can not be controled
for the record, i HATE being forced to use UI tools, warcraft especialy ****** me off with it because to be in a major guild you were required to use them, period, and if you didnt, you werent allowed to raid.
In 11, the only guilds that "required" them were guilds that had no quams about cheating(in 11 thats exactly what it was, cheating, since it was against the rules)
and as for warcraft and this thought about the mods doing what players easily did anyway, i call major BS to that. Bossmods being the prime example. It made everything easymode. You no longer had to pay attention to the way the mob acted so that you klnow what it was doing, the mod did that for you and everyone else. And that took most of the chhalenge out of everything.
