AI Bot Warfare: (Mildly) Sabotage Bots by Talking to Them

Recommended Posts

Clipboard01.jpg
 

Everyone’s least favorite part of WoW, the bots, got some upgrades! Luckily for us, those same upgrades leave them open to a new (and pretty funny) way to mess with them - talking!

As spotted and explained by PreparationBorn2195, some bots have integrated ChatGPT and are using it to respond to other players' messages, so as to appear more human. Now let's see how you can make them less profitable!

First off, AI has come a long way, so it’s not quite trivial to be sure you’re talking to a bot using it. Luckily, there are a few ways you can identify ChatGPT: refusing to say certain words like „Bot“ or „ChatGPT“, not being aware what game version they’re playing, and the fact that they possess vast knowledge of obscure subjects. Once you determine you are in fact speaking to a GPT-powered bot, how can we use this to our advantage? Well, GPT implementation is cheap, but it still cost some money.  The more responses the bots have to make, the more it costs them, as generating responses after a certain amount isn’t free.

But it’s not all good news. You could get reported if you message them too much, and the cost you incur on them isn’t exactly high either. For now it seems that AI is more of a help than a hindrance for botters.


And so while we were busy worrying about AI taking over the world and destroying humanity, we were too blind to see the real threat - really weird replies for bots in World of Warcraft. Have you had any encounters with some AI-supported bots? Will you have some chatty fun with them if you encounter them?

Nope. Terrible advice. If you upset bots and they target you and mass report, you're screwed.

Given this is the only thing you've commented on, I'm going to assume you're a botter who doesn't want people to screw with them. If not, then my bad but I don't see why you'd make an account just to comment about not following this advice.

I mean I can see they might if they got mass reported after messing with bots. It's an incredibly frustrating thing to have happen and I'd guess it sticks with you enough to want to speak out. Or what you said 😄

Actually Spoonfingers is 100% correct. WoW runs on 100% automated suspensions. If you annoy a botter, they can instantly have you suspended by mass reporting you with their bot farm. You can appeal blizzard, ask for chat logs, ask for proof, and blizzard will send you 100% automated messages denying your appeal, not providing proof and simply linking you the entire terms of service, that you didn't even break! I got an LFG silence for a week (unable to use LFG tool, unable to talk in public channels, unable to even be in my friends group if they need to list for a 5th player for a key). Was a very annoying week. My crime: I killed 9 bots that swooped on a herb in war mode with a big frost DK setup.

Sounds like botter rhetoric to me.

I'll fight the war and take my chances.

      Blizzard has added a completely new category to the Great Vault in the War Within. Find out more about the updated requirements!
      While we can't bring up the UI on the Alpha, based on datamining, we were able to figure out that the PvP row has been completely removed and replaced with a World row, as indicated by the new global strings for Build 54675.
      GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_INCOMPLETE - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.|n|nThe item level of your reward will be based on your highest run this week.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_FIRST - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a second Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 GREAT_VAULT_REWARDS_WORLD_COMPLETED_SECOND - Complete %1$d more |4delve:delves; or |4world activity:world activities; this week to unlock a third Great Vault reward. World activities count as Tier 0.1 WEEKLY_REWARDS_THRESHOLD_WORLD - Complete %d |4Delve:Delves; or |4World Activity:World Activities; GREAT_VAULT_WORLD_TIER - Tier %s WEEKLY_REWARDS_ITEM_LEVEL_WORLD - Item Level %1$d - (Tier %2$d) WEEKLY_REWARDS_COMPLETE_WORLD - Complete a Tier %1$d delve or higher to increase this reward's item level. New World Category
      As you can see, you can complete delves or other world activities to unlock items in the new World row, which is cool for players who do not want to do Mythic+ or Raids.
      To unlock items in the new row, you must complete 3/6/12 delves or world activities. World activities count as Tier 0, as you can see in the global string.
      To increase the reward's item level, you must complete Delves at a higher tier. We have 9 tiers in total with the last two being only for bragging rights (awarding cosmetics).
      Great Vault Requirements in the War Within
      Here are the updated requirements for the weekly chest in the War Within.
      Raids
      Defeat 2/4/6 raid bosses to unlock slots 1-3. Dungeons
      Complete 1/4/8 Heroic, Mythic, or Timewalking dungeons to unlock slots 1-3. World
      Complete 3/6/12 Delves or world activities to unlock slots 1-3.

      Let's check out the unique and rare mounts available from the vendor in MoP Remix.
      MoP Remix introduces 29 new mounts for your collection. However, there are some additional very rare mounts from raids and world bosses with a drop chance of around 1%. The best part is that you can buy them from vendors once you have enough Bronze. Just keep in mind that these items have a minimum level requirement and are quite expensive.
      Reins of the Astral Cloud Serpent (1% drop from Elegon in Mogu'shan Vaults)

      Reins of the Cobalt Primordial Direhorn (1% drop from world boss Oondasta)

      Reins of the Slate Primordian Direhorn (Low chance to drop from the Zandalari Warbringer Rare Elite in Townlong Steppes)

      Reins of the Amber Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Reins of the Jade Primordial Direhorn (Zandalari Warbringer)

      Spawn of Horridon (1% drop from Horridon in Throne of Thunder)

      Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent (1% drop chance from Sha of Anger)

      The limited time Remix event just got a lot less deadly, as Blizzard fix another bug. Certain high level boss abilities were doing double damage, but a hotfix has cleared that all up! 
      Remix (Source)
      With a hotfix that we applied a few minutes ago, we’ve fixed a bug that was causing some high-level boss abilities to unintentionally do double damage to players.
      For players who have been inside an instance since before the hotfix went out, there will be no change until you leave and start a new instance.
      Thank you for your reports and feedback!

      Players without the Dragonflight expansion have been having trouble after reaching level 60in the MoP Remix event. Their characters would become locked, as levels 60 and up were part of the Dragonflight expansion, so there was quite a bit of confusion since the event wasn't supposed to require the latest expansion. 
      Luckily Blizzard have now clarified that this was a bug, and have since resolved it! 
      Remix (Source)
      We believe that this issue has been fixed with an update that we deployed with realm restarts earlier this morning.
