I just had a quick look at what the new bots in the 1.2 common test are like. Are they better than the Leviathan bots? You bet. For one they don't seem to follow set paths, and they make at least some effort to not get hit, which incidentally already makes them better than 33% of players you'll encounter. They still play like a sub-48%er though. I assume WG will improve the A.I. in time, and if they do it would be a good idea to have a range of A.I difficulties so they don't all play like 56%ers. I'm not sure that the current difficulty would get dull that fast though, as the speed at which random shitters succumb to bots would provide some variety on its own. A major downside I can see would be stat padders on one team focusing on real players on the other team.

 

I was able to get into a tier V game almost immediately with 5 other players, but tier I MM took over 3 mins and I still didn't get a match. Really couldn't find 5 other players? Maybe at the lowest tiers where no one wants to play (bar a few), the minimum number of players could be reduced? I see this may be implemented in the Aus cluster, which is sensible, but even HK could do with that at tiers I-III as it's really hard to get a game at those tiers.

 

Anyway, I played the T-34S for the first time ever in this game.

 

Edit:

Oh yes, and once again I saw a player without a region tag. What's that all about?

Arguably better than some actual players.

I'd imagine WG will MM the better bots with or against a higher skill level players.

Different bots for different skills.

Do they know how to aim for cupolas and weakspots?

 

If yes, :(

Removal of xvm and player names on the enemy team until after the battle would make identifying the bots pretty hard, whilst also improving overall gameplay.

I like it. Now that there isn't inter team chat you can't say g'day to anyone anyway.

WG will look at the replay and say such bots don't exist

 

Even if the tank is a bot

Well kinda sucks we won't be getting them on the live server for a while, but its nice that they are finally doing something for the lower tiers. I've not been able to grind my M15/42 because virtually no one plays at that tier.

Does the arty bot suicide if it's the last one left?

My Aussie morning blues will soon be over! I'm a morning person, so I feel most like playing in the morning. You can understand how disappointed I was when I switched my account from the NA server to Asia several years ago, with hardly anyone playing in the mornings! This introduction of bots (for tiers 1 to 5) will enable me to get back to playing at my favourite time of day. Also, if I play some battles in the morning I'm much more likely to play in the afternoon or evening as well. Without my morning frolic I usually don't feel like playing, so I really haven't played much in the last couple of years. These bots will change that! I expect that I'll play the low tiers in the mornings and the high tiers in the evening. Perfect! Bring on the bots!
