This 66k account will be a good test case. Clear as day botting (can pm replay if anyone wants it). Lots of prems, 260, f155, fv183, 121b etc. and unless wg pull some bizarre 'but it was only one battle' shit then it should be all gone.

Yeah, right.

I've got a clear as day I have reported twice and he's just taken 440 hit points off me in his M40/43. Best bit was he was blind fire killed by one of our SPGs (the only non-bot of the 4 in the game) who shot at their team's other SPG bot when he was lit.

I'd be happy to see this replay, yeah. :trollface:

Why is it that other games have moderators playing, and banning hackers/botters live?
Meanwhile, World of Tanks has antiquated reporting system and we (the customers) have 5 or 6 bot arty per game ........

In 10 battles yesterday I reported 15 people botting, all with clear replay evidence. One game had 4 bots and a suicide out of 6 SPGs.

So then I played some SPG and just blindfired the spots where bots go. On Glacier, two shots, two kills - I'm sure the bot programmes in question just moved on to their next game but it made me feel slightly better.

I don't think it's even a case of "Bots are ruining the game" anymore. I think it's "the bots have completely [edited] this game, server or both".

Did that on Glacier to in my SU130 the regular spot where ppl go an boom  ammo-rack and dead then get told its a bot by another player... same thing again on Province and Prok, I don't bother anymore going to support, its pointless when they (WG) allow serial suciding players to continue to play, just like the bots nothing gets done the player in question now uses the anonymizer and still drowns his tank if his team is losing I approximate that he's reported atleast 60 times for drowning and he's still playing, if Wargaming gave two shits they would abide by their own rules they use the recorded speil of "due to privacy data rules we cannot disclose the outcome of our investigation" that's just a cop out of "we did nothing"... what "privacy data" would be divulged? Why can't be, "said player XXXX was found guilty and received a two week game suspension or was perma banned for consistently breaching the game rules", I don't want their personal details.... its protect the cheaters at all cost..because the bottom line dollars their losing... so they look the other way...

First game of the day, HelloworldofT and HelloworldofT2 in the enemy team both playing SPG. Looked a bit fishy to me, considering they weren't platooning (I know that's impossible as they're both SPG anyway). 

 

I'm guessing this months ban wave of botting accounts is going to be in the thousands?

Given the gap between waves is enough for the bots to get marathon tanks and win raffles, perhaps wg should think about doing them more frequently, or, you know, doing something that actually stops them.

All 6 SPG's in this battle were bots. You know it is bad when you recognise them by their IGN because you've been in battles with them before, even reported some of them :(.

 

At the very least, 20% of the players in this battle were bots.

I've reported a number of those. Some as long ago as a fortnight.

6 very straight forward ban-able accounts handed to W.G. on a platter.

Something tells me these people with bot accounts have no skills or time but plenty of money.

Actually many of them have very purple stats on the tanks they play to unlock SPGs.
