    It'd be priceless if they got banned for botting.

    Next they'll start rolling lv1 orcs and shouting about gold for sale in the middle of Orgrimmar.. Oh no, wait, that's the Chinese army..

    Lol, I would love to see the US Army add a command that does this into the AI.

    But the real question is, how do you know who is AI? How do you know who isn't AI? How do you know you're not the only human in the game? How do you know you yourself isn't an AI? How? HOW???

    I think he really just couldn't be bothered levelling to 70 himself before Wrath of the Lich King comes out. And then there's all those achievements :p
    would love to see some more info on this sort of thing

    Why WoW? Why not CoD4 or something? It is not going to be able to interact in WoW unless it knows how to talk to immature gamers who say things like "nub" and "lulz".

    I think even Planetside would be a better platform for this. They are only picking WoW for a headline rather than practicality.

    I think its a stupid idea. One its not meant to interact with video game characters controled by humans using a keyboard and mouse, for people act retarded in wow like when everyone stands around naked while dancing. Honestly you have humans in an unnatural environment testing whether it appears human or not... damn my country's military is retarded. I think its going to be a Army recruitment bot saying things like "Gee you know whats better then playing wow playing wow for the US army". Stupid idiots.

    It strikes me as a slight cheat to the Turin test. In wow your not expecting a bot to act remotely human so your not looking for it if your taking part in a Turin test your likely to be on guard and attempting to trip it up.
