I have this subjective opinion, that there was short time with lesser bots in game. Now they seems to be back online. Not sure, but there have been that kind of teams lately. Im so pissed off with them, other half of fun gone again :-(

Define bots. As in idle in base, did not load in, DC? Or don't do what you want's it to do, because it only guards cap or did not help? As those I see all day.

 

As for a real bot. You can spot a few now and then on tier 2 and 3 in gift premiums farming free xp. As there they can get away with it for longer as they are harder to spot. Been there for ages as they never really left. Tho it's still a rare sight. On tier 4+? Can't even remember the last time I saw one I suspected was a waypoint bot there. As they get spotted instantly and way faster there to get shutdown. As most see it a mile away.

 

Easiest way to spot it, is to block it's path. Then it gets confused and turns to go around you without moving the turret, and even more if the next path is blocked to. Or try to bump it if it camps a bush in base. If it does minor adjustments each time, kinda like the Tiger II in the old tutorial when you did bump that so it would move a bit. Then it's a bot. If he gets mad and turns around to shot you, it's not. And you can see one on tier 2-3 now and then, as the new players never do notice them to report it. Or you might not even notice it in the sea of bad that's there.

This is outrageous... most bots play better than Red Barons. This is slander of AI that is actually capable of being useful for the team. :trollface:

Whenever you use the term "bot" in this game, make sure to elaborate what that means in your world. It's one of those terms people really seem to have trouble with... similar to "gg".

GG 
"Good Game

1. A polite remark uttered after the end of a round, game, or other measured interval to indicate that a match was fair and enjoyable. Usually uttered collectively by the occupants of a game server. The opposite of wordBG/word 

2. A condescending remark, often uttered by somebody who does not know meaning 1, and is simply repeating what others have told them.

you are concerned that the pretend bots you see are better than you and you can't compete?..or are you concerned that you are seeing things?

Lately, I've noticed a lot of 40 win8 bobs with less than 1k games in tier 8 premiums, but bots, only a few cases that they would be actual bots.

There is indeed a large influx of accounts one could argue as 'bots', on the basis of apparent low-effort gameplay and similar naming convention. Last time it was discussed it was deemed 'naming and shaming', but it's best described as <name>_<smiley with closed eyes and open mouth>.

 

On a non-related note, here's a fancy smiley with closed eyes and open mouth:

Not surprising at all considering that new improved 3/5/7 matchmaking actively punishes players for trying to grind new lines

I saw one of this kind today, in E75. 46% win rate, 260 WN8. Obviously was top tier, cause WOT rule #1 is: always at least 1 bot in top tier heavy.

Yes, you are absolutely right and I can prove it. I have a bot farming running in my mum's basement. Currently I'm running 5000 bots on both servers at the same time. I'm not the only one who does that.

Thx for comments, i guess then, that I have just a conspiracytheoria of my own, or something similar. Actually I dont mind 51 % winrated and above bots if they play on their own level...  Im sorry if i offended any botplayers ;-)
