I just did Battle for Gilnes, 10 v 10 bg.
we had 2 people who were afk and one who was a bot that mounted and ran forward.

I reported all 3 along with another two people in the bg and they were never removed. They never entered combat they stayed inside the ship where you enter the battleground.

Blizzard needs to make something to counteract this.

Id like a blue post on here please because you cant win 7 v 10.

We’re in the process of stepping up our detection and tracking to log and action players that are botting, or habitually AFKing in the Battlegrounds. We’ll be taking aggressive action and removing earned items, Honor Points, and ultimately suspending or even banning accounts of those that are found to be botting or habitually AFKing. It’s a sophisticated level of monitoring we’re undertaking. No one actively playing in the Battlegrounds normally should be concerned that they’ll be actioned.
