Ahahahahahahaha.Owned, in the face.Wonderful news, I hope the tears are flowing lavishly.
@Wishblade, are you ignorant or just stupid? Of course they'll pay money to cheat. Less $$ = more $$$.
As someone that had a 7-years account hacked and lost several itens even after account restitution and several tickets due botters, I am very pleased to hear something like that.
It's about time .. this damn addon should have been banned a long time ago.
Now if only they could get rid of the "sales ads" for in game acheesements, gear, etc that I see plaguing every custom "LFG" listing...honestly, that has more of an impact on MY personal gameplay than seeing a 1 botter every 6-12 months; but thats just me.
Not sure why this is news, it's only presenting them a free podium. Anyhow, on to the next banwave.
Making a mistake. Missed opportunity. No one is playing anymore. People still want to play. Solution - let us group with BOTS! Let them out of jail and hire them. "It's about time," - Space Marine
As fun as it is to know they're finally throwing in the towel, I have to agree with some of the other commenters in here... Why is this on Wowhead? A cheating service got halted. Great, but this won't be relevant to most people playing the game fairly, so the only people that would concern this are... The botters? Why bother posting an article for them? (I'm fairly sure that wasn't the intent, but it seems a bit silly.)
Are we supposed to feel some kinda remorse? I mean, I certainly don't. Glad to see em go. Hopefully the lazy neckbeards behind this wonderful product for bads who can't "git gud" will now have far more time to go play in traffic.
Wowhead posting the announcement from the company (which including saying which services will continue to be available for sale) and giving this news seems a lot like a tacit endorsement on Wowhead's part of what they were doing IMO.
Press S to spit on grave
and in keeping with the theme of things no one cares about...i think i'm coming down with a cold, ham and cheese sandwiches taste better when fried, and my dog's just crapped on the carpet.stay tuned to CNN for further information.
You won't be missed! :D
I wondered, too, why wowhead was posting about this. Then I realized that it has to do with the game we all love to play, therefore making it important enough to mention. It's only a temporary win for Blizzard (a big one!), and I'm left wondering just how long it will take these guys to start another company like it. And I'm sure they weren't the only company out there selling these things.Good riddance for now though!
Taking the 'spying' angle on their response is just silly. If things like HonorBuddy didn't exist, they wouldn't have to scan as part of an anti-cheat method. The whole reason scans and tools like this exist is because of the prevalence of players cheating for gain in online games.
