I know about bots and they play for the people when the person is away / asleep but the past few weeks i did a lot of public bountys, and theres a bunch of people with leech bots - i did not even knew this exist ? Like in 2 different games, both guys where paragon 3850 "ish" somewhere around there, they join a public bounty and then the bot do nothing except keeping their characters active - for example the one guy teleported to hell rift lvl 1 - wait a while then gets teleported to town, wait a while and repeat cycle.
With auto play bots, at least the bot do something...this is messed up, the leech bot takes up 1 of the 4 slots, and do nothing. Luckilly theres vote kick but now you have to baby sit your public games, to make sure people are actually helping.
auto bots is difficult to see - cant really say they are non responsive to messages because i have seen people that just dont do in game chat - if you want to speak to them its team speak or nothing - but the leech bots are easy to see if you keep a look out for them
- or just stand in town, like someone said you just have to have you stash open
- or like the first time i saw it - the leechbot teleported him to act 4 hellrift lvl 1, his a paragon lvl 3850 so he should/could be in hellrift level 2 in a few seconds unless he get side tracked by a goblin or pack - but he never went passed hellrift lvl 1 he was there 10 mins - he just went back to town and back to hellrift every minute or so, i noticed it too late to vote kick him.
it just sucks because these guys get 100s/1000s of bounty mats for doing nothing and thats how they get their primals.
