I'm sure lot of you encounter this bot already.  I have played with  this bot with  a handful of times since the three days someone alerted me to him. This bot just yolos in.  

How do I go about reporting him?

first screenshot was taken on the 17th, 2nd just now 

524 random battles 3 days apart.

They can't ban him, this is who the Puerto Rico dockyard was made for.

Do they have premium ships?

Yes, he primarily bots in Georgia 2k and Pommern 1.9k

Agir, Mainz, Kidd,  Kirov, Charleston, and Tachibana 

 

I don't know why he doesn't bot in co-op, less attention and annoy less players.

My opinion (and from what I know other players as well), though denied by WG, is that not much action is taken against players who spend money. 

There's a specific botter that used to even post here. It's been 4 years and I still see him ruining battles with any of his premiums.

Morning captain,

 

WG would suggest you use the Player Support, top right of the website, and report someone who you are suspecting "botting"; to CS with attach replay/s.

I saw him on his georgia charging in as usual during the pirate bounty event. His secondaries actually killed a real yugumo player who also was yoloing trying to get the bounty....

36%...good lord..even at my worst gameplay i was getting a 44% WR >.>

36%.  Let that sink in.  That's the opposite of a 64% unicum. 

OTOH, there are differently abled people playing WoWs too.  If it can be shown that he's not actually a bot, he deserves to play just as much as the rest of us potatoes.

i mean yea, if hes an actual player then let him play, but uh..if they cant prove his not real its a problem.

OTOH, i know they ignore bots. Theres an entire clan of em in COOP thats been running rampant for months. Theyve been reported, and replays have been sent to wg from various players. Still around.

This probably does not need to be said, but nonetheless let's do some math:

3 days equals 72 hours or 4,320 minutes divided by 524 battles equals an average battle time of 8.24 minutes.

So we have someone who is continuously running through battles every 8 minutes or so for three days straight......if not a bot then this is pretty dedicated playership...

This botter is WG's ideal customer:  He plays constantly and never complains about anything.

Note that is with no breaks for sleeping, eating, etc.  In other words, no chance that’s a real person.

"We recommend you to use in-game system of complements and complains. Click with right mouse button on player's nickname and then select a "Complain" point. Choose a "Plays poorly" out of provided options. We are constantly checking complaints that come from battles. This means that we will check much faster if the suspicious player is using bot programs and will take action if the violation is confirmed." 

 

I also get in contact with proper person who is in charge and ask for instruction/s.

Please use the correct step of reporting a player who you think "botting". So guys, lets get together, do the right things together and see how thing going to be.

How long does it take for to review people who have been reported? Its been about 3 months since i first noticed the players im talkin about and nothing. Some have sent in replays, some have even posted about them on the forums.

They are almost always pink(from being "afk" or the team damage they do.) they only move when an enemy moves into their main batteries firing range, at which point they only sling HE and they sail in a straight line, and theres a clan of them.

its obnoxious, and due to obvious bots still being played despite reports it makes me seriously doubt wgs banning of bots.

I do not want to get into trouble for even asking this (perhaps) ignorant question, but in the generalist of concepts how does one of these bot programs work, is it some executable script file or something like that or is it more complicated? (Apologies in advance if this a forum violation. I do not want to try to write one just interested in the concept.) Thanks....

Folks,

At the end of the day, if you see someone playing like in a way that is not consistent with normal game play, submit a ticket with a replay.

The problem is that players seem too think that reporting bot players is like reporting shoplifters in San Francisco. Nothing ever actually happens. Obviously if a whole clan has been reported for months and is still at it, there is a perception that the reporting process is futile.

I cannot share details, but I will tell you, botting is NOT as big an issue as some think on the NA server.

I haven't seen/suspected it very often in my years of play but I have seen it. Never made an official report, 

Of course currently I'm playing mostly coop so one more green bot is usually a good thing and I probably wouldn't even notice. At least now that they have that 2/7 issue fixed.
