Had a game last night (which we lost) where we had an allied Tirpitz on our team (Tier 6-8 game)

He lasted about 6 minutes. He ended up getting focused fired and that was that. With about 1000hp left his final desperate act was to torpedo me who was about 1.5km away from him. Please keep in mind he was facing the reds and had absolutely no reason to dump his torps behind him.. My Warspite ate 2 fish and was on the back foot for the rest of the game.

He was the lowest scorer and his name was just a whole lot of random numbers. Curious, I looked him up and after joining a couple of weeks ago had played about 60 games -mostly T1 & 3 and had clearly just got a brand new Tirpitz. 

Whilst mildly annoyed at his attempt to team kill me, I kind of want to offer to div up and help him out, but am I wasting my time? Is this bot behavior or just someone who has more money than sense?

I suspect bot user account. That is what most of bot user..would use as a name as they lack creativity.

its hard to differentiate between a bad player who up tiers beyond their skill level and a bot with a small sample size.     Probably best to monitor and if you see behaviour that makes you think its a bot then report it in this thread.

Yeah thanks will do.

I initially thought bot based on the random number name, but wasn't sure. Are there trends in the amount of games they play since joining? This one had only 60 odd games in 3 weeks. Plus do bots sail premiums?

The random number can be an indicator but maybe not in isolation.  Maybe some internet cafes use numbers for their accounts.

While running into risk of offending others, I'm yet to see people full of numbers in their ID to actually know anything about the game. They aren't bots, just clueless Asian people spending time and money on wrong things in life.
