What do people who use them hope to gain? Exp gain must be tiny even if they are in operation 24hrs a day.

Maybe the bots are a special breed of computer AI that are actually playing WoT for fun

Bots are skynet alpha version 0.01 prototypes. The clock is ticking.

Because they don't want to play the game but don't want to pay to not play the game either? :confused:

Because some people are too impatient and lack any skill to play the game properly, but still want to achieve higher tier tanks.

Why bots exist?

Well, why did Tamagotchi exist when you could just buy a hamster?

Why do women ignore me?

Some questions are just too hard to answer.

Quite the opposite.

 

The answer to all 3 questions is one: To make life easier.

If there's a boring, repetitive, annoying task in front of them; human beings will try very hard to automate it.

X number of operations must be completed to achieve Y.  The number of operations is tedious, time-consuming, too many, all in the opinion of a person.  X can be automated eliminating chosen reason.

 

The use of bots or automation in a process alters opportunity costs.  NASA does not have a huge rooms full of people doing orbital calculations (literal computers) anymore, when an electronic computer can do the function faster, cheaper and more accurately.

Bots exist so you can explain what The Dingers are.

WHY BOTS EXIST

 

1. WG side bots exist because lack of players or game is not interesting.

2. Player side bots exist because need to do some stupid requirements/personal challenge or "soften" waste of time.

...

3. Imaginary bots exist because "some cool players" call other player player 'a bot' to feel better or 'lighten' failures they've done. 

4. Fake bots exist as playstyle for a players who have they own playstyle or dont care about stats/wn8/whatever.
