I'm hoping the current fix for bots is just temporary while they develope a more robust system. The bots just switched tactics and are now just farming ore and trees with multiple characters rotating in and out. When you go into WvW and see 40+ bots running the same loop you have some real problems.
I have faith those of us who like to farm will get that back soon.
On another note, the new system that keeps players from speed farming instances is great. It promotes team play and pushes the players to clear entire instances for the best possible awards and gear. Eccentially they took the feeling of grinding out of the endgame and made it actually challenging and exciting.
