I'm pretty sure there were 10 bots in my last tier 1 game. They're not hard to spot. They all have random strings of letters and numbers for names, they average about 1 hit per game and if they survive long enough, they end up parked against a wall. Most tellingly, you can troll them relentlessly and they never react.

Put a report in and replay to boot, next time you bump into these. So you won't get banned for physics abuse yourself... Dunno, should you use physics abuse ticket or something Else? Cheating tickets usually get bot answer, but trying a few times reopening won't hurt or even take too much time.

Well, that's one of the few spots you will see actual bots. As they can get away with it for longer vs at tier 4+ etc where most spot them instantly. As in when you hide them among all the new and bad there. It's less noticeable.

 

But if they are bots or new clueless players is a different matter. So just contact support with your concern so they can check it out. Posting it here won't do much. Or as little all depending.

Stop statpadding in your Leichttractor and you don't have to be annoyed by a WoT game feature anymore.

I'm experiencing a lot of bots NOT randomly named in higher tiers too. And without a single shot. So...

Outstanding team performance. This kind of thing demands a solution. Now we have the x5 experience modifiers and I am trying to play as many battles as I can but with this kind of player base, it is like torture. I have posted a suggestion for improving the versatility of tanks through deploaybles or some extra abilities of some sort as a potential solution to the problem that often team mates seem to not have a mouse or, worse still, to not have hands.

It looks like a pretty normal screen to me.

 

And if they are bots at tier I, how do you appear to other players in your T25/2, for example? I have THREE tier IV TDs with more average damage than your T25/2 and at least eight tier V TDs.

Back in the day i was trying to get the Master Tanker ribbon and needed the Renault NC-31 to finish it. In those days the best way to meet the tank you needed was to play said tank. It took me 139 games to kill one :teethhappy:

Some years ago, someone posted a video of a tier 8 battle in Northwest where almost all players were bots, in each team. It was a very 'interesting' battle.

Sadly this seems the likely source of the bots.  I wouldn't want to point fingers but they do suddenly appear when the total eu population dips below 6700 and amazingly all disappear when it goes back above that.  Maybe its some sort of test to see if we want pve....I know I don't and tend to log off after seeing them.

 

T-116, random generated names, similar "play-style" and stats in tier III, time to log off for awhile, sorry WG but bots are not a solution to low numbers.

I mean, you're pretty terrible. even for your average tier played.

 

Maybe you deserve to be down there with the bots at tier I.

OK guys this crap is real.

Just had a battle with such bot in my team. Same pattern as OP says - random 8-string character name, parked against the wall, his tracks was moving all the time, his gun was shooting shells at rock.

One tank from my team even bumped into him because he thought he was stuck, but he just moved cluelessly, found another rock and keeps shooting at it.

I smell exp farming software.

And btw it was tier III-IV battle.

I've seen these as far as tier V.
