NA server is rampaged by bots, even in high-tier battles. Not "bot-like" humans, but bots.

Almost every battle I can observe one bot on my side, not to mention what is going on on red. They simply sail along 9th or 10th line and enjoy the scenery on map edge. Sometimes they may fire a salvo or two, but nah, not really.

I just wonder, how soooooon will WG deal with this?

Edge huggers are human, bots don't sit at the back are farm XP.

I've also seen the bots that sail forward to a certain spot and then stop as if they are AFK.  Then as soon as a shell hits they come to life and start moving/firing.

For along time I use to see this pink Tirpitz in coop always using a bot program.

His guns would just fire at the water and when he hit a island that is were he would stay.

Ha ha, that's a good one. Let me add that they will stop and go dead even in front of the red team. No guns moving around or any movement. Then when they get hit they start moving and firing at random enemy ships. It's very bizarre to see but I have seen it enough to wonder if it's a bot program.

Well that’s what happens when you have PC games that are more easily hacked or modded is players can pull such stunts. Sadly the code is just not as secure as some other things that could be used. Of course if you used something other than PC code you would not be able to mod the game with custom Camo not offered by Wargaming in game lol.

I remember when WarGaming posted stats last year or the year before and praised someone with some crazy amount of games for the year. It was basically physically impossible for them to have done it and simply get sleep.

 

Bots are pretty bad in the game and drag it down. War Gaming doesn't really care though. Even on a QA they just claimed certain players where just super bad.

Now Lert tell them the truth, you stop for little while periodically to sample the catnip...

Played just over 6K games and don't know that I have ever seen a 'bot'.  I think far more are not bots but a mass assumption just like AFKs that actually didn't connect or got dropped, or the game crashed etc...  No way for WG to know if a ship is a bot with any guarantee.

Lol that's probably somebody alt-tabbed, and hearing the noise of the hits, then switching back...:Smile_veryhappy:

Bots arent present in every battle. But there are plenty of bots and AFKers.

Reporting them is pointless, WG will not do anything. I keep a list and if many are on the server, i dont play high tier randoms. Its the only solution given that WG likes AFKers and botters, they cause collapses and ships back in queue faster.

Those are battleships, but it is easy to confuse them.

I swear there was one in ranked.  I think the person turned it on and forgot to switch to random.  The team called BC.  He sailed straight line into A cap as a cruiser.  Would not respond to anyone.  Maybe if the "mods" were options in the game for everyone, there could be an anti-cheat system that could pick up on this.  Does allowing mods, make it more difficult to have anti-cheat?
