After tier5/6 it's not really economically sustainable to CONSTANTLY bot. The emphasis on constant because ofcourse if you combine it with a few 'real' battles in premium tanks perhaps it is.

 

The only for sure botter i encountered was a player named 'sorryafk' in his lowe. No naming and shaming with such a player name i guess :)

 

What IS an issue is AFK players, or players who only play half a battle, or in general are doing nothing during the battles. It's effectively playing on a team with 1 less player. If toptier sucks even more.

Well. They managed to cut down the use of bots quite well in the past. I remember times when you often had multiple ones per team. Even platooned. They never had a news about it or something, one day they were simply gone. Or you just had simple afk bots - until the afk punishments got introduced.

From then on I maybe noticed one every 100 matches or so, but I also didn't pay much attention anymore. But it's definitely not as bad as people like the OP claim. That's just bollocks.

Instead of banning them periodically like they currently do?

There are also bots that can create forum accounts, hence the captcha. So Dom is an very advanced one I think...

Reporting 'Bots', will enable WG to programme them better so as to make them as undetectable as possible.

That screenshot had all the names of his team cut out, if I remember correctly. No naming and shaming.

Periodically is fine, but I've seen known cheat users, ones who have exposed themselves on the forum, and ones I've seen running actual bots go unbanned through these periods

i suppose an algorithm to analyze driving paths and general patterns of how you play. When it's starting to be something like 99% the same every damn time on same maps, automated bot stamp and further investigation on that account. You can tell bots from their aiming and way they react to spotted enemies or if they are flanked (the way turret is always turned most efficiently and they do not hesitate). Some bot software are better than others (shooting obstacles in front of spotted enemies etc.) I'm not here to rant about it, just suggesting that there are ways to identify them.
1. Algorithm to analyze driving / turret management / taken paths in background.

2. Message / new popup type of thing to confirm if player is in fact a player and not software. (this could also be random between fights. Simple calculation on picture or captcha etc.) Or heck, place an place changing ignition key on random battle, so that you can enter que if you click it (no hot key for it, so bots cannot be configured to bypass it so easy).

3. bot or not -decision & stamp and further investigation --> ban only when confirmed bot.

Sure people would be annoyed by some random captcha before a match (only for random match and like 1 in 10 etc). Then again it would root out a lot of unsupervised bot software thus improving game experience.

problem I've found at this current time is that the game seems to have become very extreme. 

 

You either have horrible losing streaks or decent good days. Often during games you have to carry stupid hard and even that is not enough. I'm not good enough to do that in the first place and certainly not good enough to do it every game. 

I've had games recently where I've done 4k damage with 4 kills at tier 9 and it still wasn't enough to win the game. No one else on my team got anywhere near that. I felt I needed to do more when that game ended. It's just very brutal at the moment and coming back makes it even more difficult.

The word Bot in game is getting used as much as poverty in the UK. 1 bad game and never mind your stats your a bot, pathetic.

Bots would actually be better. Some of the things you see being done are so mind-blowingly stupid you just know there's an actual person behind the keyboard.

 

Funny story to this one. A friend of mine stopped playing, around 2016, because of this.

He created a 2nd account and payed some bucks for a bot and a well known aim mod.

 

He let him run over some days and accumulates ~ 5000 games fast. According to which tanks the bot used, it got a Wn8 around 1000 to 1300.

After seeing this, he was really shocked. Seeing that a bot with an aim mod is better than 50-60% of the playerbase.

 

He even reported this account to the support to see what happen and to raise the awareness, that even such "good" stats can be achieved by a bot.

I think he made 3 tickets. In every one the support stated, that this player isnt a bot. After seeing such "support" and knowing that most players are worse than bots, he quitted.

He doesnt want to play a PvP game were bots could improve the gameplay.

But you heard that story from a friend of your friends cousin, right? Because it sounds like a fairytale, especially the part about the support judging a case like that instead of giving a bot answer...
