Just about every game i play, there is at least 1 bot in my team. At the moment there are hordes of t34-85 bots in the game. Is WG actually doing anything about this problem? Surely they should be banning and  removing accounts on the EU server. Something needs to be done, it is ruining many close games.

It would seem not, it is so blatantly obvious that the game is infested with bots, yet the only news i've heard about WG reacting to the problem was on the Russian server. Are we 2nd class citizens on the EU servers WG?  WG, which server / community  contributes the most financially WG?

Same here. 1-3 bots just stay at base every match. This is pathetic.

In one battle tonight we faced a team that looked like it was mostly made up of bots. We lost that battle...:hiding:

It would seem to have quite a bit bigger player base, but I bet financially there probably isn't as big a difference between the Russian and EU servers

Sure you can bet that, but you'll lose the bet.

Probably my gambling results are not the best. But I still think WG needs to do something about this, it's pretty bad in randoms.

post a replay of the bots you are taking about. And I mean a replay from you, not some random youtube-vid.

Ok it's a figment of my imagination that Tanks drive into a corner at the beginnng of a game and sit there the whole game, sometimes not even facing the rest of the map.

Depends on what your version of a "bot" is. As the definition of a bot today vs in 2012 is rather different. As today is basically anyone that is a worse player then yourself. Or does zero damage. Even if he is a better player then you, and he was ammo racked in the first 30 seconds... he is a bot. 

 

In any case. If everyone had their way with bot removal. I suspect 80% of the player base would be gone tomorrow.

Do you think that bots are a problem in the game? Do you think they are a common occurrence?

I'm not sure that you can.... Since you think it's such a big problem, I might have missed some info on how they behave.
