Just want to run something by you all,and I'd be interested in your responses. WOT and WOWP are both team games right?,now imagine if you had someone in your team who was AFK,or dicking around and not doing anything useful,would you report them?

I mean it could be that they had to leave the keyboard for an emergency,or they don't fancy getting told what to do after having put up with that all day at work,or they may just want to have a goof off...

Personally speaking,should I be required to leave the game for any reason,I usually let the team know,so as to prevent the possibility of being wrongly reported,also I can have fun and be a team player at the same time... I also very rarely report anyone unless they make it very obvious that they wish to have no part in the game through pure selfishness,why take part in a team game if you don't wish to take part in the team?

Another thing I do,is to PM them after a game to see what the problem was/is,then act upon their reply.

Again,what do you do?

I just report them. I used to give them the benefit of the doubt but I've lost for too many matches down to a tank being AFK or a bot.

Negative. Why should I let bots just ease through the grind?  I hate them.

I have seen more and more bots recently. Easy to tell as they seem to have no situational awareness, had 1 enemy bot amble past my hummel looking for me, it took him 5 patrols of the area to notice me even though i had the enemy artillery trying to hit me.

I report any bots and/or people messing around as they effect the battle massively. A couple of times have had a platoon kill each other for fun as they did not want to fight the opposite teams.
Unfortunately there are so many bots around you run out of reports quickly.

Hard to imagine that TBH, any player would see me quickly but bots tend to only focus on what is infront of them.

Report. I have my connection problems sometimes, and I might get reported for that, but I think you'll only get banned if you do it again and again and again.
