Question:
How hard is WG on getting rid of bots? I was sure that illegal mods include bot programs, yet even today, I keep seeing genuine bots (just now it a tier 7 match). It was literally a tank, not moving, sitting in base, turret turning wherever it saw an enemy tank, fluently, firing, turning towards anything else it had LOS etc. You know, the bot 101.
Does sending replay to WG do anything to "botters"? I have the replay but don't know if having a bot program is a big deal enough for  WG to take action other than responding "please use the ingame report system" (although politely worded).

Is this bannable?

When in doubt send the replay !

 

Not sure it will do something ... but it can't hurt !

Were we in the same game?
I just took my new T29 out for a first game. El Halluf, KV-2 just sat in base the entire game, turret kept turning towards spotted vehicles, but didn't even move or return fire when fired upon.
Game ended in a draw.

Me, on the other hand, waiting for official bots to be added to the game so there's no timing out when trying to join lower tier matches.

You know, the ones announced months ago that would have names between **, what happened to that?

7 years ago we had bots. Was at least one Lowe pr team in a tier 8 game that used an idle bot that shot anything that got close until the idle counter system was added, or used a waypoint system to "patrol" a section.

 

Today we have passive campers that wait for damage in the nearest bush from their spawn. And should WG still ban them if no programs are used and they are just... bad?  I can see that working well for WG.

It's the certainty of these claims that astonish me.  Worst evidence in a criminal investigation? Eye witness testimony.

 

I would be concerned that I was long dead before a bot and attempting to learn from that fact.  Based upon comments about watching turrets move, I assume watching after being dead.

Thread closed for being nonconstructive
