But not in game. Just another example of WG laziness.

 

Here I was happy that the general chat was moderated more often but no. WG simply made a dummy account and scripted it to rebuke users who do not speak English in main and autoban lewd behaviour.

 

How I know it's a bot?

 

  • Repetitive sentences
  • Replies faster a person is able to read/type

 

That wasn't enough so I used what little Polish (y'know, the "K" and "P" words) I knew which got my alt account muted. (not complaining about that, btw. That is supposed to happen)

 

My complaint is... really, WG? That's the best you could do? What happened to the sentient beings that actually kept the place nice and clean?

What makes you think the bot isn't Sentient? Perhaps it gained moderator access after being created by Elon Musk? But in seriousness Humans are likely having a life, something the majority of WoT players don't have, and cannot spend every waking moment in Garage chat.

They should have a bot which chat bans anyone who types in general chat, it's all the channel exists for anyway.

Then again I feel sorry for the bot.  If anything is going to turn them against humans it's having to monitor the general chat channel. :ohmy:

I only open general chat to feel better about myself.

That chat is just full of some super insightful minds.

General chat?  Is that still in the game?  I remember looking at it some 7/8 years ago and thinking that it is this games equivalent of Mos Eisley.

You know, moderators have automated message options they can post according to what they're doing. Think of it as copypasting. I've seen moderators on Twitch do the same, actual people, using these automated message replies.

​If I was moderating General chat, I would get nuts after 2 days telling everyone to use English. That I would beg for a twitch board with chat option buttons vs typing it 24 531 times a day. So I can see why they use it.

Mot every reply will be typed. Back when I modded private servers you just right clicked the player name and selected the required response.

Yeah I've been running autoinsult version 2.2 for a while now and it's far better at comebacks that the wg bots.

It also has multilingual patch coming soon.

Sentient, not Sentinel.

Even if a bot is sentient, would it ever qualify for being sapient as well?

I mean... most animals are considered to be sentient...

Probably not, unless it was semi-organic with the best of both worlds.
