How do you spot bots in Randoms?

I have never seen this in Randoms:    :name:

I do see people accusing one another of being bots even when they are active in Chat.

One time it took me 6 or 7 minutes to load into the game.  By then it was all over for the greens. Some Einstein accused me of being a bot in a post game pm.

Stop and let that one sink in for a moment.

 

:cap_haloween:

 

So how does one identify these bots in Randoms?

:Frederick:   That is what the name would look like on the team panel.  WG standard id for their games.

Easy. The bots are the ones who are playing better than your teammates.

C'mon Blasto! The bots clearly are the ones that forge straight ahead and ram the enemy! 

The common bot in randoms are as you know them in CooP/PvE  - their name starts with a colon (:) hee hee

Now the other type of bot, the one used for grinding, if they squirt off to a corner of the map without saying anything in chat, even though folks are really ragging on them, well those are called bots too. 

Always remember tho... "These are not the droids you are looking for..."

I do believe low tier randoms can have bots...

I've only seen 1 or 2 actual bots in higher tier random, first they are generated by players not WG . Typically they either sit still and dont shoot or target anything until it is close enough ...or they drive in a straight line until they hit something then never move after.

You might consider an SSD drive.  They are very reasonably priced now, some models for less than $40 and the upgrade will put you in matches in seconds instead of minutes.

High end options are faster but for the purposes of this game, a budget option is all that is needed and you should see huge improvements.

That is new with this recent patch. Any low tier game that doesn't have a full lineup will have bots inserted.

You got to stay current with the patch notes, reading is OP. Maybe a few less troll threads for you in the future...lol.
