The word bot is something almost all MMO players have encountered, some might only know it by name, and some may encounter the actual bot daily while playing. A bot is a program controlling a character in the game, grinding for experience, money, resources and much more, it is a program playing instead of a player. This is seen as a problem by big parts of the gaming community, where players hate how they mess up the game, developers on how they scare players away and messes up their cash flow. But what solutions are there to finding bots? And is botting really something bad? Or is it just another way of playing the game?
