I believe that bots are common in the game and are a problem, I was wondering if fellow players also believe this to be the case,

I really haven't encountered bots that basically threw the game, personally. Though removing bots would be fine.

Do you mean like actual bots? Or just bad players?

Bot tanks, tanks that are being controlled by a program, not a player.

They are a problem yes, but very rare. In the four years and twentysomething thousand battles I've played I've encountered maybe a couple dozen of bots, so I'd say in about, maybe 1% of all my games played there has been an actual bot. Most of the times players you think are bots are just actual players, and yes, people can be really, really bad at this game.

Strange because I think I have seen quite a few recently, especially t34-85 bots, the new free premium that was gained by completing some daily missions. When I see certain types of behaviour in a tank, it sets alarm bells ringing, behaviour that I wouldn't associate with  poor play, such sitting in the corner of the map, not even facing out towards the rest of the map. Refusing to fire, but still tracking the target tank. After I've been dispatched from a game and I'm clicking through the other members of my team to see how they are progressing, that is when I notice them.

Oh, trust me, those are actual players.

Bots all act the same as in following normal players and just autoaiming everything when it gets spotted, meaning they shoot at objects when an enemy is hiding etc.

Bots are very rare, and nearly always it's just a player, how and why they act or play like that, I guess nobody will ever know.

I don't think they are very rare. And I've been a bad player, and I've seen a lot of bad play to notice the difference. A bad player reacts differently to a bot. A bad player reacts naturally, a bot reacts unnaturally.

You might think that, but they are rare. If you think you have a bot in one of your matches you can always post a replay, it's the easiest way to tell.

But all I can say now is that nearly always it's just a really bad player. And you don't have to he a bad player yourself to notice the difference, I know the difference between bots and bad players myself as well. Most of the times they are very similar, but it nearly always does end up being a player. But sometimes there are those occasions that it actually is a bot, although like I said, they are rare.

You can think whatever you want, like, I won't stop you from doing that, it's just that your thoughts are wrong though.

Like, opinions are opinions, I can't really change those.

Well we will have to agree to disagree, I think bots are common in the game at the moment.

Think what you want, but know that it is not true.

But yeah, opinions are things that can't be changed. Anyways, It's getting rather late so I'm going to sleep now. I will actually be playing the game again in 9.20 so if you want, we can maybe platoon a bit when that patch hits. That way you'll at least have one bot less on your team each match ;)

One of the most constructive arguing ever:facepalm:

OP, you are a flat-earth believer too? Because you are similarly stubborn...

Give us some replays if you say that you encounter bots so frequently.

And no, i don't think bots are a problem now.

Played in a battle last night. We had an IS7 as top tier that I thought was a bot but 'it' started raging in chat so in this instance no it wasn't a bot, shame really as a bot would have played better.
