Normally I do not make such topics but I just had a really weird game:

It's not just that basically the whole team is tomatoes. I mean that is kinda normal for WOT. What made me kinda suspicious is those 2 ST-1 on top.

 

 

I edited the first parts of their names out because of forum rules but those were very similar as well. I left the _70 and _74 of their names. And check out the amounts of games played. I'm fairly certain that both are fairly new bots that started "playing" around the same time. And given how they were named, it's also likely that they were created by the same guy and that he probably has at least around 70 bots running. The _74 at the end of the name points to that conclusion. It's how a lazy person would go about naming a batch of bots.

 

Oh, and both of course had the stock turret with the tier 7 IS gun to maximize their usefulness. That we still won this game with THAT team and those 2 bots on top just shows what a balanced map Mines is^^

 

And before someone asks, they also weren't in a platoon. I'm not sure what the mathematical probability is for that to happen randomly, but it's probably quiet low.

If not seeing problems would make them go away, I would probably have cut out my eye balls a long time ago and would live a life without any problems now^^

No, WG fills your team with bots when it wants them to win.

Congratulations. You have found an account farmer. (As if this isnt something that  happens in every single MMO ever)

 

Give them 2-3k games and they'll be getting sold on ebay....

Were they afk? Did they react to messages? Did you send the replay to support?

Where and when did they state "no more bots?

 Wargaming fills your team with bots when they want you to lose?

 

You discover that just now? I was telling people that for quite some time but they always say I'm making things up and WG keeps saying there are no rigged battles. While in the last few days I saw my biggest share of rigged battles where one of the teams was rigged to lose. For instance, last night - me and my friend both with Strv S1 (naturally we get to fight against tier 10 bc that's the premium MM for premium vehicles) and surprise - we're the only 2 yellow players in the team, the rest of us are red bots with wn8 below 200. Tier 10's with wn8 100-160 wn8 - that deserves the biggest facepalm you can make! Naturally we lose despite me and my friend's efforts. Next battle was quite the opposite - we were rigged to win. Our team had only yellow and green players while the enemy team had only one green player and the rest were all orange. Checking their stats on Tab, I noticed one "orange" bot with 103 thousand battles whose wn8 was about 640 (ROFL).

For as long as there are skillless noobs who shoot with gold ammo, they will be rigged to win and everyone else will suck it. That's why I suggested in one of my latest topics to make gold ammo gold again and to make it 10 times more expensive. Thus we'll see wallet warriors much more rarely than we see them now.

yes it is rigged :)

 

We can just assume that and go on with our lives or we can debate the topic for 2-3 years and never reach a conclusion. But how else can WG sell this fantasy to young people? Also there not many things related to WG that are not rigged when you think about it!

 

That is my conclusion at least and i am kinda of at peace with that as it is at the end of the day a mediocre game at best.

Because you are making things up.
