Would it be possible to add a category for reporting Bots. I believe it should be much quicker and easier to get these accounts flagged for action by WOWs.

While in theory I agree that this would be nice, I have also seen a fair amount of regular players whose actions would lead you to believe they're bots until you see them respond in chat.  It would probably lead to abuse and a fair amount of people who aren't actually bots getting reported, and WG would have to spend the time wading through who is legit and who isn't.

Bot used to be a report option, but Im guessing it was incorrect most of the time because of how many players play just like a bot

Send in support tickets with the replay so the evidence is there for investigation. An in battle click report does nothing since it provides no evidence.

It would be nice is ever game had a instance number or some sort of ID that could be referenced, it is on their servers after all but I start making sure I do replays on all the games I guess.

I have never seen that. 

Maybe you should send a replay to support.

With some of what I've seen in chat I'm not sure that is valid proof.

I've always been curious why WG needs us to provide replays.  I used to play EVE, and CCP would investigate the game logs for things like this.  I'm not sure if WG logs player activity to that level or not though.

Viking,

I have seen games like you are stating.  It was more likely that the player hit W a few times and then had to AFK for what ever reason.  Even the Bot CVs in COOP launch planes.  I can be wrong, but have seen players go AFK and just keep steaming in the direction they were when they went AFK all the time.
