Hey all, am I and my platoon mates the only ones that are seeing a recent influx of "REAL BOTS?" mainly in tier 4 battles on ANZ server? im seeing B2's going in a line like caterpillars, clearly acting like bots..there can be as many as 4 per side, they are NOT the official wot BOTS which have the double dots beside their names..these are red players, when I check they all seem to have 1000 or so games with the same tanks, BT7 art, B2, LTr etc. its like someone is launching a concerted attach on wot.

we have all seen bots before but how can some scammer possibly be profitable buying B2's I don't get it...

You can take a bot out of its colon, but you can't take the colon out of the bot.

They are bots . It's an attempt by WG to increase numbers . WG have low opinions of the player base IQ so think will will not notice . They do that a lot .


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

could it be the ultimate seal clubber filling the que with bots to pad there stats. I don't see why WA would bother the last low tier matches I was having on ANZ would only have 10 per side sometimes and something like 5 or 6 bots meaning they only needed about 8 for a game. 

 

I have started playing the hong kong server instead of the ANZ. With the higher playing pool it is a bit better as long as the ping is okay. Grinding up the tiers for a new line was better as well. If you get a seal clubber with a 10000 games in a matilda or something and a 10 skill crew firing 100% apcr on ANZ and you only have 4 - 8 per side non-bots it makes a mockery of the experience. Especially at tier 2 or 3 where there is only 3 maps and they would no every position.

And do you have any proof of that?

Last I heard WG were in the process of banning them.

They are WG bots . Except they don't have : or the rectangle symbol next to the name . They do however play the same as the marked bots .

The sad bit is that they were many in number and blatant, yet it took a big effort just to get any movement from WG. So much for auto bot detection.

So you reiterate your point but you don't have any proof that they're WG bots.

Who's to say they're not bot farms by players, that are there to farm credits for accounts?

 

Apply some logic to this situation. Why would WG add bots to tier 4, when they already have their own marked bots? Why not higher tiers like tier 10 that actually need the numbers.

My guess is that there's some promo code with a B2 or a B2 rental, and the usual riggers from Team Battles are exploiting it.

Great. I'd love to see it. :)

Well go try tier 8 Scrims, they probably still there. Not like I've lied about this before so just take my word on it for once.

I think he's asking whether you can prove they are WG bots as opposed to player bots.

 

Tho i guess napes, if they weren't WG bots, why did it take so much effort to get anyone to do anything about it? Surely WG in all their excellent policing- ness would have been all over them without people kicking up a fuss... unless they were WG bots that is... or WG's bot detection is 'balanced 268.4 tm'.

I like the way so many of the bot drivers (leaders) have integrated into so many clans. It seems like a lot of work. Games dying anyway so some easy opposition to get lots of silver not such a bad thing though. Helps with the grinds.

Please take a screenshot of the battle results and submit a ticket to Customer Support with a replay as well if you can. WG have been banning hundreds of these accounts in the last few weeks so please keep supplying information to allow them to keep banning them.

Well from what I have seen the majority have email addresses from only two providers, so that would be a start
