Strange how much people are using word BOT even they dont know what it means. And if you ask at game from players who use that word, they get angry.

 

Mostly explain is that you are bot because you dont def or you go other route than players usual do.

 

And mostly  hose who makes this comments havent play more than 5k to 8k battle and things to be so pro. First what they do when battle start is rushing against enemy and get destroyed in first minutes and then blaim team as BOT or someone in team when players stays to follow battle. 

 

I can understand situation where tank is obviously behaving like BOT, but situation where tank owner talk and move tank or def standing still and someone call´s him/her BOT is strange behavior. Is it because of frustration, or what, and by and large, wonder where have they learned to use that word? Are they even going to look at what that word means or whether it is just a fashion design when one uses it so I have to use it.

some "bots" can be hard coded to respond when their name is pinged, or their name is said in the chat, so distinguishing that would be a little harder than, "it talks, it not bot"


 

bot I find, is generally used to describe someone very bad, or playing very badly, generally used against those that are top tier, but don't use their top tier tank as someone wanting to win the game would, ie like obsessive's T95 in the above post


 

ofcourse, some people use the word as an insult towards those that are not bots, but really its just a silly word and most people don't understand what is and is not a bot

that said, the word is known through many languages, so using the word, people know what you mean, as calling them bad in your native language that's not English, would be unknown to the majority of people that don't speak that langauge

You really love starting these kinds of threads about skill and playing badly, right? :rolleyes:

Do you also collect whips and like to wear tight leather suits in your free time by any chance?

^^I thought you were some stiff Wombat Shell with no sense of humor.   ^^  Take a break, best thing or else you will go in other games angry, and yup I have seen that happening, it seems to be thrown around a lot lately.

There are some players out there that play so bad that if not for their "noob team, no support" interaction in the game chat after they suicided I would have genuine doubts there's a human being on their end.

The report category for someone who's parked on the red line and not taking part in a battle is "Inaction/Bot" so I've always taken it as meaning someone who doesn't contribute.

I understand why bad players gets called bots, they do act like it and make some very questionable decisions rather often, but anyone that have seen a proper bot can quite easily distinguish a bot from a bad player. I've also found that a lot of good players seem to get called a bot rather often, mostly since they don't follow the meta, you know top tier HT rushing the 1 line on Fishermans Bay rather than going city, a lot of players starts shouting bot when stuff like that happens, the fact that they outperform most of the team and always the ones shouting bot seems to for some reason be ignored.

Well the word "bot" fits to 90% of playerbase in WoT. Why? Because they behave dumb like bot programms would do.

And yeah depending on map / tank you are driving you can already judge if someone is experience or not if they drive specific direction.

 

I even have seen super unicums behave like bots. Like Jingles uses to say "Sudden rush of crapto the brains".

You've played 61k battles and haven't learned a thing.

 

That doesn't make you experienced, it makes you as bad as a bot.

Have you ever observed the gameplay of those players? When you see a top tier T30 camp the redline because "im td" it's increasingly hard to think that the player is a human.
