Yes, we ban hundreds of accounts every day for a host of reasons - botting, fraud, etc.
You haven't seen any other pattern to the bots you ban ... like a naming convention ... say like a character named "sdfgsdgdf"? How about from the same IP region? Same credit card?
Yep, we see lots of patterns, but most of those patterns are not useful for the reasons listed above. Which isn't to say we do nothing. As I mentioned previously, one of our engineers has been doing quite a bit to improve the automatic detection and flagging of BOTS. But it is an ongoing, never ending fight. Exploiters are always looking for ways to exploit, and we are always looking for ways to counter them using a number of different methods.
