Hey, what if those players dieing in game automatically take over a live BOT.  

 

Good

More game time for players

End game - BOTS will now cap, and respond to chat suggestions (sometimes ;-))

Reduces the BOT/Automated feel of the game

New Players get "second chance" in game

 

BAD

Stat Padders will have to work a little harder at lower tiers

occasionally, player may YOLO hoping to get a better tank (Bot Tank) but thats pretty noob

A bot take over in the upper tiers would be good.

Nah. Usually when I die, it is at the start and usually because my team is crap and doomed to fail anyway, so why would I spend more time with them.

Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again

All this encourages is dying early and getting a second chance.

 

It's a no from me.

Don't even get me started about the bots....

 

Seriously the Russians are losing players because of their incompetence so their idea is as bots to the game?

 

If you are so drunk and useless just sell the game. Pass it on to someone who knows how to run a game. Maybe stick to designing nuclear bunkers?

I think its a good idea.  How many times at the end of the game your team has just a few bots left and the enemy has maybe one 'red' player and you know with a sinking feeling you will lose...

I have a better idea

 

Why not let bots take over players if the game detects the player is AFK

Well a saw a tier 4 bot tonight get the max damage of both teams and it was on the losing team. 16 shots 13 direct hits with 6 pens (m8a1 75 mm derp gun I think). >1000 damage. It even seemed to intelligently use rock and bush cover at the end to boot. 

 

Who should replace who. Terminator is coming.

Indeed, the :______" names you will notice, but the secondary names are  the names like bryant_invader, or gibberish names. Usually doing the same thing or running into buildings. Himmelsdorf they even ram you, on your own team.

I think I noticed that more types of tanks are being used (not just type 95 and a couple of others). I suppose these means that some effort is being made to programme them better which of course would be good. They are funny in a way normally being totally inadequate but then sometimes playing like a pro. Its humorous in a way when you get overwhelmed despite being backed up and then when you look around you see the back up was all bots. Note to self make your you take a look at your back-up and ensure it is human control.

Love the bots, feel like a unicorn playing against them and makes gameplay so much better. Wish bots where in all tiers!!
