Hi everyone,
I came across this player.... and my question is: Do you believe in Bots? This guys has played 16,364 battles and with an average of (lets say....) 1 shot per battle! Plus, on his stats he have Tier VIII and Tier VII battles as well....
In 6 years he hasnt learned how to do more than a shot per game?


On this last battle he was only reacting after being shot! STRANGE RIGHT? Maybe not if you believe in bots.... 

Do you believe there's bot on higher tiers and WG in not releasing this info?

Good battles guys!

Naming & shaming.

 

This is not the best way to raise this subject.

While I don't really know if or if not he's a bot cause I've seen similar bad players stat & battle vise it does seem strange cause every world of tanks stats website won't show his stats only the total ones.

Some go as far as saying he doesn't exist, either way it's a bit strange about that part. But I do agree with Spurtung just in case he's a player cause what you are doing right now is more or less stat shaming.
Edit: Seems like OP censored the name of the player, so nvm about the stat shaming then.

I do not think bot is real thing. Wargaming ban such people. Maybe he just plays for fun after work, or maybe he drink a little bit. You do good when drinking? Probable no. You think should be illegal?

If they're not using bots, they should and they did promise to do so. Sometimes really late at night, some tiers simply won't enter a match, after waiting for 5 minutes for the MM to make it happen.

Distance travelled is too high to my bot detection taste. But yeah sure I believe there are bots to be found in all tiers.

It depends, as the definition of a bot has changed vs 6-7 years ago. Then we had actual bots that did idle farm or waypoint farmed. There was at least 1 Lowe pr tier 8 game that did it. Or at least 1 Churchill III on each tier V game that did it.

 

Today? Then bots are not programmed farmers. But anyone who doesn't do what everyone else wants. As in bad players or kids that have below zero map awareness and just sit in one spot waiting for something to drive by so they can shoot it, and this have a 40% WR.  If it's that one, then yes... I see a fair bit of them. The first one, I've not seen in years.

I think some players are just terrible, but they carry on because they enjoy playing with virtual tanks and could not care less about things like efficiency, winrate, WN8 and so on.

 

Other than that, I've seen some tanks behave somewhat "robotically" in matches, so I would not be surprised if there is some bot mod or something at work, but I'm unfamiliar with this stuff.

There is also a crowd that simply goes afk every game they play. Park tank in corner, start chatting if you are lucky, go and make coffee if you are not.

obviously bot programs are definitely a thing. they have been around pretty much since the game came out... however most players that get called bots are in fact just terrible human players... bots are not as common as some players believe

I played against WG 49% WR bots on SB and, let me say, they are far better. Sometime they may be a bit tunnelvisioned, but they play actively, try to flank, and have absolutely no fear of losing their tank, so don't run and fight till the end. They earned my respect over the crowd of basecampers we get in random.
