Let’s face it, everyone loves playing games against bots. Those bots have just the right amount of intelligence to make you feel like a gaming god. But when the bots are disguised as humans in skill-based games, that’s just not cricket. AviaGames is facing a class-action lawsuit for using these sneaky bots, and it’s no wonder players are miffed. Who wants to lose money to a bot? It’s like losing a poker game to someone who’s wearing sunglasses indoors–you know they’re cheating, but you can’t do anything about it. AviaGames may have thought they were being clever, but now they’re facing legal trouble. It just goes to show, you can’t hide your bot buddies forever.
