I thought that bot prevailing in the game is only exclusive in Chinese server? But in Na as well, it's frequent you encounter  bot teammates, that run to the edge of the map at the beginning of the game.  Well I am not afraid to throw this guy this ID out: Vxxxxxxxd. Running to the edge and leech his teammates the whole game, and any1 interests can check his stats. If WG don't give a damn about the flooding bots in the game. Then let this thread be a blacklist for posting those using 3rd party software farming credits and exp. I am sure I am not the only person vexed by these bots.

ValveisGod is not a bot. Everyone has played with him many times. 

Remove your post, OP.

Might want to edit your post OP as you have broken forum rules by naming and shaming and all you will accomplish is getting yourself banned.

And FWIW botting does not involve running the map edge. That's a real human trait LOL. Any bots running a real person's ship I have seen (seen a few) just go straight out of spawn and never alter course. They don't even target enemy ships - just shoot the guns as soon as they reload.

Well this guy plays like 500 matches in a row of the same ship and hold distance at the map border with guns locked to a point in the map for the entire game over all of those games. Very fishy behaviour, I know I have reported him many times because he doesn't even play when he's in battle.

I won't comment on his playstyle, but I've had  conversations with him in battle. Ergo, he is not botting.

OK I edit his id, but i met this guy twice, and he is not the only bot/ player with bot like playing style I met in this game.

Will wargaming come up with the same option Overwatch implemented for not queueing up with 2 selected player in the same team. limted twice a day? They just ruin the game.

That would be an interesting idea, but our playerbase is probably too small.

What they need to do is make multiple servers accessible from a single account. Then the playerbase would be big enough for things like that.

A couple reasons why this might happen.  1)  Has a mission that says "play a battle" and has decided to load into one and go make some pancakes.  2) Has MM and has decided the match is a total loss before it even started and decided to go make pancakes.

@DrunkenKraken Yes that's a Bot no matter what any Formosan Termite says! Report it for cheating Rigging/Throwing the battle every time in a support ticket!

Eh even if I am sure that this guy i met in game is a bot, I would not use such word regardless his/her nationality. All I care is how can I fill a ticket against these bots. Would WG even care about their server is filled with those real bot termites and they don't give damn crap about that.

He is poking fun at me. I live on the island of Taiwan, whose alternate name is Formosa. :)

In this forum I have seen players calling for skill based MM claim they "commit suicide" or don't try to win if they feel they are teamed with potatoes. While I play for fun 1st & foremost, I do play to win every match.

It’s hard to prove he is a bot. He might have bad internet or he might just play while doing stuff with his family so he is only half paying attention. That’s the fun with Multiplayer games you never know what you are going to get.

@DrunkenKraken if you don't report such things in support tickets then nothing will ever be done! The automated system and the in game poor sport, AFK, Foul chat are rather useless! Support tickets flooding in attract attention! Use them!

Okay well I have encountered this particular player twice in two days both times in a Salem doing what is described above. Does not respond to any chat. Only other thing I can think of is its a wee child whose  momma or poppa give him the game to putter aound on while they go bonking...

99.9% of Bot shout outs are not bots just like 99% of the AFK shout outs are really late loaders.  No real way for WG to absolutely know if they are bots.  About the only thing they can do is what they implemented for AFK and that has constant complaints.

I have played with this fool, not a bot but does not participate. This person just loads into the game and just sits somewhere and does just enough to not be AFK. Sometimes they are a difference between a win and a loss. In the case of a loss this person is wasting others time and is a very chitty thing to do.

Sounds like the guy is a griefer not a bot. I seen a player who does something similar who even posts on the forum and insults in chat.

Give every match a chance... But at some point you gotta say "this isn't fun for me anymore and I'm gonna call it quits."

It is the hypocrisy , screaming for better team play than "committing suicide" because you do not like the team you're on. Those you do such things intentionally become the poorest of team players.
