Mike Lewis of ArenaNet recently updated the Guild Wars 2 website with news regarding the ongoing bot battle in one of the biggest MMORPG games of the decade. The game has been plagued with accounts using bot software since launch but ArenaNet are far from beaten as they announce a whopping 34,000 account bans in November alone.
Over time, we have heavily reinforced our initiatives to eliminate botting from Guild Wars 2. We have been seriously pursuing the botting issue since the launch of the game, and the results of our ongoing efforts are palpable.
In the month of November, we terminated over 34,000 accounts for operating bots in Guild Wars 2. Moreover, we have observed a serious decrease in the population of bots in the game – and so have you, our players. The number of bots reported every hour worldwide has dropped from more than 2,000 in October to a much healthier 20 as of this writing.
