I think sometimes it's bad, but people tend to be lazy, and farming 10k tokens is pretty boring.
Or BLoD, that took me like 2 years to get by hand, because I couldn't stand to sit in front of the game for more than half an hour doing the same task.
Unless it's runescape I won't be using bots, the game has no in-game economy so you don't ruin anything by selling an item because of demands, unlike runescape if you bot on there, you negatively effect the economy = more items flow in = prices for those items go down = they lose their value = insignificant, good example is dragon bones before the huge bot nuke.
Botting in aqw has no effect and getting items legit doesn't feel accomplishing, so botting to me is completely fine, and also you get to spend time elsewhere, inside or outsite
I was banned long time ago in AQW. Getting all stuff again was realy boring and slow, so I started using bot. It doesn't affect other players. This game doesn't have economy, so getting some coins with bot only helps you. I don't understand why people are mad at players that don't want to waste life in game.
