When we only had 6 out 7 clan members online and couldn't drop the CB match due to the missing 7th member, how we wished we have the option to just let a bot fill the position so we could roll with 6 members + 1 bot.  WG please let us use bots as fill in!

A bot would be completely ineffective against a coordinated clan team.

Have you met the coop bots?

It would result in a loss nearly every time.  Recruiting nearly any player, no matter how bad, would be a much better option.

Would prefer to get with 1 less

I used to think so too.  But a couple of years ago a group of us were in a community run tournament (Shipstorm I think) and one of our guys was running a little late so we had to start the first match with one bot (which the rules allowed).  Our DD bot, Popov, charged straight into the middle/B cap, capped it, and then ran back to us!!!!   We kept that middle cap for half the match and Popov lived for almost half the match as well, which gave us the points lead and the win.

P.S.  We wanted to use Popov again but our last guy showed up for the next match!!  :Smile_hiding:

May be you can even make :Popov a member of the clan.

Never seen a level 10 bot not suiciding. But seems :Popov is one of a kind.

If you want to play clan battles and can't find 7 players regularly, you should seek a merger with a similarly skilled clan, or recruit more active players.

Since the red team gains points, and you lose points for losing a ship, it seems you would be better off playing without a bot.  The only exception would be if you all decide to make a banzai charge with the bot in the lead.

In my opinion, the only thing a bot would do in a Clan battle would be to give the red clan something to focus their fire on for the first 30 seconds of the match.

Why use Co-Op bots? Use the Operation bots. They were tried in Co-Op & players' winrates in Co-Op dropped by 75%.

I would like to recruit :Popov:, sounds like a good clan member to have around on standby yo!  lol  

 

If you guys have played co-op or operation, you'd know how effective bots can be in juking shells, dodging torps, making last-minute maneuver like a pro, accurate aim, and they would focus fire and finish off low hp ship!  Bots are significantly more intelligent than the majority of the random scrubs you picked up out of the woodwork! Set the bots loose and let them do its thing.  :-p

From what I have seen, the bots will head toward the middle of the map, essentially looking for a ram.  If they get halfway to the other side and there are no viable targets, then they start driving around and occasionally will drive back to spawn.  Usually they have a target by then and go after it, but not always.

Regarding OP - perhaps just let teams go 1 short instead of adding a bot?

If you think about, it'd be highly exploitable, since one could create "feeder" bot clans real ones could use to pad their rise through the leagues.
