all the supposed cv bots whom i saw reported so far (polynoe, lysianassa, autonoe, halimede [spelled as alimede]) had names of one of the 50 nereids, the children of nereus, minor greek sea goddesses or nymphs

 

so just check if the name of your cv is in the list here and if it is, it's likely a bot

gosh, i have sympathy to that bot maker, serious

Huh.  I'd noticed Cymodoce being incompetent before this CV-bot brouhaha brewed up, but I didn't at the time know that a CV-bot had started showing up.  And it's one of the Nereids off that list, too.

 

I'll have to remember to cross-check with that list when I suspect something - since my classical Greek mythology knowledge is at the "generally useless" level.

Huh I just checked the name of someone I suspected to be a bot today and it was on the list :hmm:

 

A very...unexpected way of naming them

The are also bot-ting other classes of ships as well.

 

They all have a lot of Konigsberg battles (~286 as I just checked). Mass producing accounts to sell?

Ditto.  I'll play the game now and then, but I'm mostly done and CV bots are a huge reason why.

3 games in a row with these wastes of space tonight in Lexingtons.  Pretty much kills any desire to play at high tiers, especially when the other side gets an actual human.  Think WG will actually do crapabout this or will they treat it like the old 14 bots teams in WoT and deny it up and down even in the face of video evidence?

t10 soon, bot midway anybody :3

 

Hope not. How the hell current economy will allow that?

With that low WR, I assume that they barely survive playing T7.

 

Unless they buy silver ofc, but that's kinda defeat the purpose of botting.


Anybody trying to enter a battle when low on silvers? Did it bring you flat to zero or negative value if you lose, or disallowed before you entering a battle?

Somebody must be desperately trying to grind up accounts to sell.   Amusing.

average exp per game is 2 digits or less

 

You can't discount the power of brute force.

 

All it needs is just one fluke with ridiculously derp "players".

Brilliant... God, I wish we could just TK these.guys without penalty... Though is suppose we can stop spam them with bot reports

Awfully cocky... Makes me think of a supervillain, tbh. Just with the style of naming, it almost feels... Narcissistic.

What with naming them after Greek godlings and all.

At least it makes them easy to identify XD

Some of them have a high average damage since nuking a BB gives you 30-40k plus some exp and credits. But yes the other guy I suspected being a bot 3 days ago had also many games at the Königsberg.
