I've excluded the name for [what I hope are] obvious reasons.

 

Spoiler

263 games in the past week, 35% WR (6% under the overall) TWO WN8 (... 2500% under the overall?). 

I matched this to the tanks played in the same time period:

Spoiler

Oh look, it's a bot account to grind credits. Not a single normal tank that the bot has been grinding. Let's go back 3 months just to confirm this:

Spoiler

That is 2500 games in the past 3 months played solely in premium tanks.  

Spoiler

 

So unless you meet an account like this it's most likely not a bot, just a terrible player. 

Yes I've reported it to support.

this looks like a pretty pointless bot...

 

its going to make very little per game credit or XP wise, so there'd be little point to run it?


 

surely you'd want to program it to do something useful? ie, to gain more credits and actual xp....


 

it also seems a serious waste of cash on that many premiums for what is (you think) a bot? if you were breaking rules, would you spend 2/300+ on premiums for it? seems unlikely....


 

it might be a bot, or some idiot trying to play on win 95 + dial up (and people still exist doing that) which would make it almost impossible to play though... so if that was the case, why are they? :amazed:

I don't see the point of botting. It earns so little credits / XP. And you run the risk of being blocked.

 

Maybe on Halloween event where 15 victories gave 300k credits / day it might make sense, but otherwise it's just stupid.

I don't know, you tell me... after watching "him" play I find it very hard to believe it's not a bot account.

Sometimes he plays but I'd say most of the time they just click battle hide in a bush and walk away for a cup of tea....or something stronger. Most likely runs a premium account too which will reduce the companies will to ban him. He doesn't use ammo at all in most games but runs premium tanks which will return credits as long as you don't shoot....even on a loss.

In other games we used to call them 'leeches'.....living off the efforts of others, while idling their way to T10, unlocking equipment with free XP along the way.

26 battles a day on average, does not seem that much for someone just afking/botting.  Do these bot programs go into the game for you or do you have to do that bit manually?

 

The only point I could see is if you could play so many games per day that it would compensate for playing so terribly that the credits earned would still be higher than a normal session of credit grinding.

 

But he is botting for about 3 hours a day, playing like an hour, maybe even just 40 minutes normally would earn more credits than those bots can possibly earn in 3 hours.

Do you keep silver when you re-roll? Maybe that's the plan? Accumulate 100 trillion silver and re-roll to never play tier 8 again?

You don't, but you do get to keep premium consumables, so the usual trick is to buy those half price, reroll, sell.

No you only keep gold, prem tanks and prem consumeables... so technically yes you can keep credits when you reset your account by buying a shedload of prem consumeables.

They do press the battle button, that's the whole point.

Hmmm, could be. This actually sounds like a possible explanation. Dunno if you get to keep your credits though.

Every tier 8 i play is a premium, since i sell my regular tier 8's to buy the tier 9s when grinding and never bought any back yet.

 

Does that mean im a bot?  Is my life a lie? Do i have a creator? :ohmy:

 

Find out after the break!

So this mastermind will buy consumables on discount, re-roll, sell and will keep his silver. Voila.

​On re-setting the account? Again, wow. Or selling to a 'special person' even though its not allowed......

 

At least I now understand why I don't understand! Seems like a lot of effort to go to.

 

Cheers Bravely too. Your explanation is the XVM camo version I guess!

Best thing about bots in this game is you:

 

1/ you cant transfer credits to your main account so whats the point,

2/ you cant transfer credits to your main account so you may have top tank but you have screwed up all your stats,

3/ you cant transfer credits so you can't sell them to make money,

 

Why would anyone use a bot to farm credits,

ever consider they could just be a bad player,

or possibly an account set up for a young child so they wont pester their parents for a game on theirs.

 

Only reason i can see for using a bot would be to sell a tier 10 account on ebay,

but who would buy it when they can check the stats.

and if you were doing it to sell you would just work one tech tree to get to tier 10 not all
