Is it possible in any easy way to ban all players that are bot/passive?

i had a match in my e-25 and got 4 kills and had a really good feeling about getting top gun, but then a KV-1S and a KV1 began to cap.
I typed in the chat "no cap" and "kill all", but they didn't answer and was still going for the cap and then i found a BP wich had full health and i rammed into his but and he was almost dead and the match was finished.
Later i got a match with my panther 2 on el-haluf where me and 3 other guys where the only people not bots all was camping and i typed "stop camping" but they didn't do s**t and then i realized that they were f**k**g BOTS, so now i really wanna get them out of the game.

If I can win a match by capping I will win a match by capping. I'm not going to risk a sure victory because someone wants to risk throwing it away in order to hunt down the last players on their side.

It's happened to often that someone shouts "no cap and kill all" and then everybody got killed because their last two players turned out to be quite good and the person shouting "no cap" turned out to be an utter n00b. No thank you, I'd rather win my matches if possible.

But other than that, bots should die :/

If they're alive they can shoot back. A sure win is a sure win. I'm not going to risk losing that to bloodthirsty killfreaks such as yourself.

Most players seem to be bots in the battles i have played, problem with banning them all is there would be a massive amount of loss in the player count...

instruction for removing bots:

hit ESC > beck to garage/
then hit ESC again > exit game/

try - it should work for you.

Depends on how good the bot is.

Some bots from a server perspective might look like really really bad players, danger here is some real players might be really really bad players.

If you put a line on some stats and mark everyone under it bots you might risk banning real people.

If you put the line too high you might not ban all the bots.

A bot after all uses the very same input, the computer can't tell if it's a command pushed by a hand or the computer simply said a key was pushed.

I'm not really familiar how advanced the bots are but if they are capable of detecting on screen differences of color for example to target enemy tanks they might even get shots fired upon.

If you think of the classical  bots that simply exit the game I am sure they already have safety features against those. Still we have no idea when these features kick in and as bots can basically create near infinite amount of accounts it's simply to see bots who just started still not kicking off any flags of the server detect system.

This is all speculation of course but I don't think it's quite possible to magically kill off all bots. The old viruses vs detection fight, detection is always one step behind as they have to first see what they have to detect.

-1 hp/sec of inactivity from start & no xp or credits at the end..
No damage, no spotting, no xp or credits, simple.
If tank rushes to enemy for false eff on spotting, no xp or credits.

I would also make it so people pay 5x comp on team damage as I am quite fed up with people shooting my TOG at the start of matches.

If you type commands and the other players don't respond...it may be because English isn't their first language ? Lots of Eastern Europeans on here who were never part of the Glorious British Empire and have never learned the Queen's English. Alternatively, it may be because they object to taking commands from other players who make themselves self appointed Generals ?

God Save the Queen !

I think that it would be easier to "intercept" data sent by server to client to render action on the monitor than to scan the rendered frames seeking red dots  :tongue: .

Also I'm pretty damn sure that creating (unless ofc it is already created) a bot that would be superior to some of the players, is not exactly the hardest of tasks  :sceptic: .

people pay enough for doing teamdamage, but the ones who get shot should get more credits. a friend had to pay ca. 35 000 credits and the one he shot only got ca. 5000

BOTs are one of the greatest paying customers of WG. 
Think they will throw all that money away?
