Do you report AFK Bots?

Yes, maybe Bungie actually does something

No, I don't think it matters either way

Eh, if I feel like it

Picture says it all, 964 matches botted and counting, on just one account. And bots now come in premades. I truly believe that as of now, there are no consequences to botting. If there were consequences, bot wouldn't be as rampant as it is today. Unless people are getting free or cheap Destiny 2 keys somewhere. Since it's radio silence from Bungie, I'm curious what do the Guardians think about this. I personally report every bot I come across hoping for the best. EDIT: There's a poll attached, help me get this post to remain on the first page at least. Thank you!

  • Bungie literally doesn’t do anything about it anyway. I’ve matched with the same AFK farmers SEASONS apart. The same people, and no not months, entire seasons. Bungie cares about AFK just as much as they care about account recoveries. Not at all.

  • I report them, not that I think Bungie actually does anything.

      • I'm on the help forums a lot, and these posts elsewhere always make me laugh. There are many cases every single day of people posting complaining that they have been banned and "wanting to know what they did." Bans have been handed out for many reasons. Just because the person you look at has not been banned for it, does not mean Bungie is not banning for it. It's foolish to think that way.

        • The only time that I don't report them is when I find them in Rumble. In any other matchmade activity, I report them.

          • Report them. With enough reports Bungie investigates that player but it takes more than one or two reports to flag them. There have been already 2 people I have seen complaining on the #Help forum due to being banned for using bots to avoid the afk system in gambit and the crucible.

              I always report but Bungie doesnt perma-ban them. So they will always come back.

              • This is the type of thing that should be addressed in any state of the game discussion- I suppose there's still time.
