I'm still wondering why MMO devs doesn't implement some regular expression to block players/machines from making Names with only numbers, limit numbers to 4-5 digits and names which have 3-4 consonants/vocals in a row (Afaik, its difficult to impossible to find a word like this unless it's a acronym, albeit names can get weird when people get creative ). It may be just a drop of water in the ocean, but it would cut a lot possible names from bots, the rest would reduced little by little with each ban.
This would do absolutely nothing to cut down on the number of bots. It's trivially easy to make an IGN generator that follows whatever the rules are. And on the other hand you'll be blocking some of the more "creative" legit names, as you said.
