well, sad to see. i understand the need to show your followers something or make a video about a specific thing. like crafting / rerolling legendaries. which takes mats. many mats. but the followers also want real gameplay outside those videos on the side. a few hours of rifting or grifting. one or two glorious moments where the streamer achieves something incredible. i think they have a lot of pressure.
is that the problem and the motivation to bot? are the expectations too high for a streamer so that they have to use something like bots when they cannot play? is blizzard the problem with too ridiculous requirements to reroll or craft something? or did they increase the requirements early due to botting without realising that the players botted?
i, too, have no mats at the moment. i really have to farm them, but that sucks. and i am not talking about death's breath / forgotten souls, i have enough of them surprisingly. i miss white / blue / yellow mats. every stack of them is <100. i'd really like to use a bot to farm that stacks to 5.000 and be done with that. but then again: that is lame. i don't have those high expectations from other players. i play mostly for myself and public and i have no interest in storming the ladder. but you can now put most of the top ranked players under general suspicion when you check their playtime. that is going to hurt the competition.
now, what shall be done? lower the requirements and therefore taking away the incentive to bot? then you should also lower the chance of success if you don't want an inflation of mats. effectively detect bots better? can't be done. there are always loopholes. blizzard should try to change the gameplay required to craft stuff / achieve paragon ranks by somehow altering the game. tough one.
