I don’t understand why players keep cultivating the word BOT at every turn. Do they even understand selfish overall what it means or is it used but because everyone else uses it ?? Then they pretend to be as smart as they can be and can be. Would be a good time to give it up and use that little small brain capacity to mimic other things as well. :amazed:

While occasionally it gets thrown around very randomly, it mainly seems to denote someone playing with the intellect of the badly programmed script.

 

If you get it a lot - without excusing anyone throwing abuse - do introspect on maybe you might be doing badly, or rather, might not be doing anything in battle.

OP, you are fairly new and most likely still learning the game, BUT...

 

If you are constantly getting called a bot, that only means that people noticed you "inability" to play like a normal human being and adapt to situation on the battlefield.

Next time someone calls you that, instead of opening a topic about it on forum, open up last few replays and observe your movement, positioning and general gameplay, or how you react to change during the match.

You will be surprised and may even learn how to "fix" it next time ;)

Yeah!... It's usually the word that comes right before it, that gets you banned... :trollface:

If BOT is the worst thing you have been called in this game then standby! Keep an eye on the in game chat and you will see players wishing you to die in real life and the old favourite "get cancer". You have to realise that there are some complete tossers that play this game and the same amount of keyboard warriors you find everywhere.

loving the inability to look at oneself here....

 

was playing yesterday and a questionable individual was raging about the team being campers on prok… they had an FV(A45) in a T9 game, me in charioteer - they even proceeded to shoot me repeatedly because I didn't spot for them... 

after the battle they saw I was top for damage and backtracked a bit with a very... badly worded "compliment"

 

that player wasn't a bot, but a lot of people called them a bot - I think you can see why?

Anyone not going with the herd (YOLO in the middle/city/valley), does not die in the first minute and who plays with some traces of brain, is called a BOT today. :(

Something went wrong and I posted unintentionally with a very short post. Hang on.

 

Forget it. I made a long post twice and it came up as a single stat. I can't be bothered a third time.

 

Bot!

I sometimes start a battle by announcing that I am a talking bot and people can ask me anything. Sometimes the joy derived from the ensuing line of conversation is the only satisfaction I gain from the unfolding combat situation.

so if you don't wanna be named bot, what will you prefer? if you don't like chat, close it, i think has also some filter...

I usually reply with an acknowledgement that I am indeed a bot, then block their chat for the rest of the battle as they are very unlikely to add anything constructive to the conversation.

Language is bastardised all the time.  On the whole, it is not a bad thing.  Language morphs and changes all the time.  However, when the meaning of words is lost, in the short term at least, that can be a bad thing.  The word literally can now be used to mean figuratively and the word hero can be used on anybody that is simply doing their job (not denigrating their commitment, ability or bravery.)  But when superlatives are used to describe the mundane or the expected, what words can you use to describe the exceptional?

 

The issue with the word bot being used as a pejorative is that people can end up talking past each other as one has to first establish what is meant by the word because it has two separate and different meanings.  To my mind, the literal and pejorative meanings of the word are consistently overused and have thus lost all meaning.  Part of the white noise of frustrated people, not understanding the flaws in their reasoning, venting in anonymity over the internet

 

Also, assuming a person has a small brain because of a limited or biased vocabulary is a flaw in reasoning (post hoc fallacy and ad hominem).

The English language has many colourful and imaginative expressions that can be used to liven up interpersonal communications to the mutual enjoyment of all parties. Sadly though, most of them number among the 'forbidden words' in the WG community....
