Just stumbled upon this replay on YT. The guy just farmed enemy team but this is besides the point...

Both teams are filled with strangely named players (usually 8 to 10 random characters) moving aimlessly, hugging the walls, or flipping themselves against the rubble.

Are these bots officially put by WG, or just exp farming accounts to be sold over ebay?

I'm seeing players named like this (and acting like this) a lot lately.

They're registered accounts with public stats which is a pretty good indicator for not being Wargaming-made. A Wargaming bot wouldn't have an actual account, it wouldn't need one to be in the game, they can just be server-generated (and going by what I hear from the other games, tend to have better names with noticable markers that they're bots). Also, Wargaming's bots are better.

Looks like he played against computer generated passwords.

With player names like that WG must already be aware.

Or not, and that's the reason this is just bs.

He doesn't know and you don't neither, people in this game like to claim a lot of bs without having any kind of evidence.

 

I don't believe wg use bots in rb but i don't believe bs claim like these neither. He and you don't know crapabout it and should stfu

Interesting.

Player has 46% wr and 385 overall wn8. 

Was he just lucky, or did someone else play on his account?

So, when WG show how they implement bots and how they work on some WoT servers (like their Latin servers) with low populations and in other titles run by WG......it's all bs?

WG has used bots before. In training (tutorial), in low tier battles (noob protection) and in events like Homefront or Halloween.

None of those bots have a profile or stats you can see. 

 

WG's bots are much better than the "bots" people claim are bots.

 

That's pretty solid evidence that those guys aren't WG's bots.

 

The only thing that can't be proved is that WG can have the bots on server side, but that's totally irrelevant and probably true.

 

Edit: Forgot about the actual bots WG has tested in SEA.

You ever played the recent Homefront mode, or last year's Halloween mode? You don't honestly think the bot tanks Wargaming made first need to register accounts and choose a name before they can appear in battles?

 

Funny thing though, if nobody knows and "should stfu", how could anyone answer OP's question? Or is it simply that I and other people who are in agreement "should stfu" so this thread is only for the whiners who believe Wargaming is out there ruining their lives with maniacal laughter?

 

Oh speaking of our utter lack of possible knowledge on the subject of what Wargaming bots are supposed to look like as opposed to player-registered accounts under bot control:

Yes we do.

 

WG has been quite open about implementing bots for the low population servers, they are easy to spot, they do not have randomly generated names, they have a regular name with a colon at each end, and they have no statistics page.  And they play quite well.

 

These may be exp farming bots but really, who cares unless you are enough of a mug to buy an account off ebay.

Then i apologize for my ignorance.

As for accounts, registering new accounts for wg it's just a matter of executing a simple sql script wich is easier than altering the code to handle players without stats in rb, Hence my initial doubts on the claims.

Last night i watched a replay on YT as well, of Mauschen, the guy was spamming full gold at others, and enemy team players were just lining up to die?... I mean, they were tracking, and missing a looot on such a big fatty tank.

I never meet such enemy team, as avrage? Good players for both sides.

But i really wish to meet such teams. :)

I think bots would react faster. Honestly.
