Many weekend warriors are just bots.

Does WG truly do anything about botting? Does anyone have any evidence of WG banning bots? It seems to me all these bad players we see, especially over the weekend, are bots.

Like I asked, does anyone have anything about WG banning bots or cracking down on them? maybe forum posts or updates or whatever?

Why would someone who could run bots 24/7 only run them on the weekends?

 

Not just weekend warriors, I clarified that in my post. The reason why it's bad over the weekend is because WG runs weekend events a lot. Thinking about it, the weekends where WG does not run events are weekends where my WR and WTR don't tank.

Who wants to be the one to tell him he's about to go down for posting the stats and calling someone a bot? Certainly I shan't. And honestly - when was the last time you used shan't?

If you think there is violation of the ToU, submit your evidence to Wargaming via a support ticket.

Do I need replays for evidence or can I just report players?

Ideally yes. They'll most likely just ignore you otherwise.

Sadly Bots like the ones Wargaming uses in Co Op can be more intelligent acting than some human players. :(

I used shan't yesterday... ...It has to be used sparingly, tho, or it gets played.

 

Ghost Swordsman has a point--they are better players than some. ...and I love them for their attitude.

 

They're like the Cylons in the old Battlestar Galactica. ...how could you not sympathize with a bot, and understand everything s/he goes through?

Yeah, I visited the support page. I got replays enabled now.

Not when they play DDs.

Try sending a little something something their way and they may try to live up to your standards. :tea_cap:

Relax,

sit down,

have some popcorn,

and when you're done,

you can turn the popcorn box upside down,

empty the unpopped kernels out,

and put it on top of your head.

It's lined with aluminum foil,

and will keep the alien, radioactive, mutant, mind-controller waves from Mars from controlling your brain.

and remember,

only UMI brand popcorn comes in an alien, radioactive, mutant, mind-controller waves from Mars that control your brain ray defeating aluminum foil lined box.

don't be caught wandering aimlessly about without one!

In the past, there were two bot epidemics.

 

One was the bot USN BBs with crazy game counts compared to the date the account was made

The other was the bot CVs that sent all their planes to the middle and attacked the nearest BB when it was spotted.

 

 

And yes, they were both dealt with.

 

The funny thing is, some of these bots, as bad as their programming was, were able to pull in >52% WR over a large number of games. The vast majority were in the 30% - 40% range, but even they were better than quite a lot of weekend players.

And yet after 3K+ games - I can't guarantee that I have ever played against a bot in random battles.

Does WG have any evidence of botting, like support tickets with replays? Or do people not bother, figuring other people will do it, and just complain on the forums?
