Ok seriously lets get real here other than the bots that WG introduced to the game a wee whiles back I get the need for padding the player base .. but recently I have restarted playing again and dam,ned if there aren't teir 8 and 9 bots as well its just that they aren't WG one. Look at this link [Content removed] try and tell me that there aren't people out there wasting everyone elses time grinding silver and selling accounts ..

Yeah sorry for the link (feel free to have it edited out but trying to show what's out there with a simple google search) .. not hard to find the link .. just google it and it is the only explanation for tanks behaving like they do and clumping together .. almost like there is a nest of computers botting together. It is simply terrible, I would rather have the bots that WG use than these useless things ..

Wowsers now I know why it was so freaking dangerous to be spotted when stalking a bot herd.

It's a sad state of affairs when you realise that the bots are better than a fair number of humans who either are incapable or are the sort who would actively grief their teams.

You should probably edit out your link before you get banned.

I expect that WG does put some effort into it despite it seeming not. But its a never-ending battle with the bot makers trying to stay one step ahead. 

As if the game was not expensive enough to play. Never seen the point of bots.

 

Do people run these bots on particular servers at specific times. I don't see much evidence of it on HK server during the afternoon (am I blind or is it just the odd person using them). Is it limited to certain tiers normally. If you played tier 8 or higher and kept getting farmed without getting much damage back you won't make many credits and will probably loose them. 

Of course you get some tanks hanging way back or AFK but neither is obvious 100% guaranteed bots. Some players just hang way back because they are timid / poor and some people just go AFK or have computer issues (its happens to all of us at some point). Some players only have 42 or 43 % winrates but its not always obvious a bot they just look like poor players. If they are using bots it is not doing them much good. The stats are ruined and the EXP / credits gained must be low.  

The closest I saw to mass bots was a few weeks back on assault on ghost town 4 tanks (not platooned) held way back near the arty well out of firing range. The rest of us did really well but were eventually overrun. Then inexplicably the 4 tanks came forward and carried with good play. It was so weird if they were bots they suddenly became really good. I am more inclined to think some people were signing up together and just playing around.

Tier 6-7 games today there were 3 SPG in every game, they would mostly clump together like bots. So whenever I died early in the battle I would spectate the SPG's. They would all turn in perfect synchrony, often at a random spot on the map (no tanks spotted anywhere near where they were aimed, even when enemy were capping on one occasion).

 

Must say, It's cool if you are playing SPG and a clump of bot enemy SPG are spotted........3 for 1 deal!!!

well awhile ago i point this out but, nobody cares, plus WG got no program atm to detect the bots (new bot system) unless been reported by players which also end up in long term observation which 50% wont get ban since players use them time to time not always so, observation will failed


In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.

 

more than 400 new vehicles are still planned for World of Tanks

Can I ask whats going on here? I just played a tier 8 game and there seemed like only 3 people on the team were actual players. The whole rest of the team literally followed 1 tank. Like all in the same square followed 1 tank. I am gobsmacked. This makes the game unplayable.

WG has done this calculation - is the amount of money lost by players getting annoyed with bots then leaving > the amount of money lost by banning bots; if not, then take only superficial action against bots. WG has plenty of smart people working for them, however their intelligence is slanted towards optimising the amount of money the company makes, not necessarily optimising the gaming experience for players. They know all about the bots, could take automated and serious action against them, but choose not to because it would lose them money.

I rarely play the anz server preferring the extra numbers on the HK server. 

On the 2nd game I had on the anz server today pretty much as described. First time I had seen it as well and the last time I will play on the ANZ server. Maybe 5 bots. And i presume a similar number on the other team. 

 

As much as people describe why people do this I don't get it. Its such a waste of effort. Whoever buys these accounts are going to have the most awful stats. I almost presume the people buying them a re-rolls who have been banned from there other accounts for cheating. Surely a new player would not bother putting the money into it.
