I never botted once and I was fine with it. Lp was really pretty easy to come by, honestly. Every time I went to farm, for example, i would make somewhere around 15k lp for harvesting/replanting. It's true that you could just grind the shit out of the game to get lp a little faster, but you would still make decent lp gains off of simply playing the game. Putting up walls, exploring, hunting, farming, mining, building roads, every little thing built up over time to give you a pretty nice lp gain by the time you were ready to log off.
I guess it really comes down to a passive lp system vs. an active lp system. All I know is that once upon a time, myself and five of my friends would all regularly sit down with some beer and play h&h all night. Now we don't. Tis a sad life without those nights.
Edit: Oh, and thanks about the name. I'm hoping to form a Warhammer Fantasy themed Empire in Salem. Sup witch hunters.
