Bots Scam EXPOSED

Ok

I will call it like i see it and i ill do that all day every day!

So i have been running through a lot of Bot games recently, mostly due to time available to play and it being quiet time and not wanting to wait for 5 mins for pvp.  

 

However i started to note a pattern.   Im good at noticing patterns =.=

 

Most recent game 2 humans rest my team +6 :Bots.

One Friendly bot comes into my smoke shoots out my main gun and then almost manages to push me into oncoming enemy torps, if it wasnt for some artful dodging i'd having been in port 100%

Then later on in same match, on my way to teh last bot and , approximately in the middle of the map, suddenly a friendly bot seemingly launches off random torps my side of the map...

WHERE THERE IS NO ENEMY AT ALL or EVEN CLOSE OR WITHIN RANGE

THE LAST ENEMY BEING BOW ON TO THAT so called Friendly bot, WHICH TRIED TO TORP ME!

DELIBERATELY

JUST BEFORE GAME ENDS! 

 WHAT was that for WG HUH! some scam to incur extra service Fee>?> it all adds up right %

 

So about now some might be thinking, Its bots, its a one of thing who cares.. BUT NOPE

Theres more.  But lets counter the first part.  "Its only bots" "Who cares". 

You should care because a scam there can just as easily work its way into pvp.   

It also exposes the greed and mindset behind the company and lack of respect for its player base.

Oh heres free stuff now shut up about the morally and business corrupt type practices, tactics and changes we make under ToS

Its bots "who cares"  Its not the fact that it is bots, its the fact that This company is trying to screw players over to every last tiny % and this type of thing only reinforces that thinking. 

 

Further more given that business mindset (never forget premium ammo in WoT) this friendly bots torping, could easily evolve into a seemingly real player name who is even in a clan in real game play .. and more accidental torps etc.. and You will never know!   

It has happened before where a developer has made a scam clan(s), to take on the leading clans (the higher % of money spenders) to encourage the upper Tier of spenders to spend even more.

 

Now the second part

Its a one off

NO IT IS NOT

I would not go on such a rant if it hadnt happened multiple times

Including get this

Playing on "Two Brothers" map

A :Friendly Bot cruiser is at the entrance to the enemies cap but as it turns it fires torps, all the way back down that channel between the 2 brothers to try and torp me sitting a few Km out the other side in our cap starting position..

 

There was 0 ships of any sort between those two islands in that channel, only a clear line of sight between me and the :Friendly bot.   

Nothing on the opposite side of that Friendly Bot so WG dont try to say the bot F  bugged and it fired torps on right angle but wrong side... =.=

other than that it appeared to have been your typical well timed bot torp spread but with no enemy or friendly bot target in line of sight or range.. only human player.

 

This in turn meant, the friendly :Bot deliberately sent torps down towards a Human player all the way down the channel between 2 brothers with no enemy on my side of the map or passing between us (was enemy close? not even 15km away!)  and with me being the only ship in range and in line of sight at all.  It successfully managed to torp me with one of a double spread =.=.

THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER INSTANCES OF THIS ALL Occurring recently.

 

At first it was bots torping bots, and occasional hitting humans.

But now its seems there has been an deliberate assassination issued by these so called Friendly bots and as of this recent patch.

Deliberately targeting friendlies humans, typically at the mid to late game status (not time actual time the games progression).

Perhaps the scam of bots mostly hitting bots for sometime was to get humans acclimatized to that happening.  

 

"Moreover" in PVP, bearing in mind that i rarely get incoming torpedo alerts anymore... =.=  I am very vigilant of torps as a side affect of that which continues into bots game play... 

So I noticed this trend and now this patch certainly the deliberate targeting of other Human players by Friendly bots in mid to late game play.

At first thinking weird WTF did that bot send torps to the side of the map that only has friendlies on it..  That only has a 100%  chance of hitting friendlies..  

Why

cos every last bit of damage done cost you more and increase grind that tiny % more... 

The thing about % and many many games, it all stacks... 

 

This is a clear and present SCAM

 

Disgusting WG!

Maybe the bots are programmed to emulate stupid real people in PvP, who randomly launches torps at you without looking first.....

At least it keeps you from being complacent. ..

Nah dude just morons.

I had a guy verbally abuse me and accuse me of attacking the dds on my team because I kept giving them fighter cover.  This genius with a 41%wr after 2k games then went on to try torp me. 

I actually wish it was bots.

Well, to be frank, you not provide any evidence that prove the dude who playing is  a BOTS. For all your whining, i just see one problem : where is your evidence ? If no evidence, it just your words against mine and we already felt like you just salty toward WG side and make WG as a blame. Sure they are a company, sure they make some questionable judgement in the last few patches and the whole CV re-work. But it turned out decent because as Yuro said : "rework the playerbase" is why WG aim for that.

Without sufficient evidence, i think this thread is just to abuse the devs and community alike.

( Also if you so good, why hidden your stats buddy ? )

Yeah, sure. Sure it is.

 

So bored you made a thread with zero evidence whatsoever? While Co-op bots have always been stupid (but dodge torpedoes like gods)?

If you have so little credit that dying in Co-op angers you, may as well play Random.

Well, his word seem so salty i thought he whining Pvp but coop eh ??!!!

...What did I just (attempt) to read?

I’m afraid I’m in the “It’s bots in co op, who cares” camp.

The answer to dealing with bots in co op is to play harder.

The part I find most interesting is the idea that because WG puts idiot bots into co op (a mode that WG only consider to be ‘practice and testing’ despite numerous players wanting more) that they for some reason put idiot bots that make a team lose into random because they want you to spend more money or something.

Thats ridiculous. WG does not need to go to such lengths to get money. They make stuff like the research centre and OP premiums. Much easier way for them to make money.

1. They can train in Training room which they can customize their brain out if all they want is testing.

2. WG could have easily "upgrade" any Operation to be for any tier bracket so people can teamplay better. Co-op is more or less "how many damage and/or kills can I rack up within 10 minutes" kind of race. I only use Co-op as last resort for completing missions.

3. OP premiums? Nah, they will remove Hull A from certain tech tree ships and make downtiered clones using those 3D models.

 

WG have never been focusing on Co-op. Even Scenario mode got more changes over the years. In the most recent QnA, Sub_Oct stated that they are focusing on PvP, so no new Operation in a while, not even re-adding old ones - Ultimate Frontier, Hermes and Cherry Blossom. (Allow German ships in the latter two gashdarnit)

I would beg to differ. About half the time, they are less stupid than hoonams. But yes, they dodge torpedoes like gods.

Ie, mode that needs absolutely no work whatsoever. PvP is simple. take 24 players and chuck them into the sea. No need to program AI.

They do need to work on teamworking and rewarding teamplayers better tho.

Teamworking in Co-op? What's the point?

Bots were called Machine/Computer players earlier in computer game design (before internet based game).  They are programmed to interact with Human players in the game. They do not really need AI but reactive to certain events.

In fact, It was very expensive to make Bots/Computer players to interact properly with human.  Over half of the game development budget was spent on making this thing work.

Multiplayer game actually save money for the game company for avoiding or reducing this development cost

oh goody - a thread about how bad the BOTS are at playing..........

congratulations, you now know the BOTS in this game are bloody useless, they are suppose to be. the whole Coop is there so you can blow off steam when randoms are getting you down, or so you can practice whit your ships before heading into battle against 23 other players. 

Still having trouble trying to figure out what the OP was going on about, every player knows BOTS will shoot at you - they get bored when there is no enemy

My point exactly. OP thinks its some conspiracy in co-op, when truth is, its simply that WG don't care about co-op.

I may have been too subtle in my critique, when I said "interesting" I was being polite, what I meant was "(Edited) hilarious."

I hope they focus on new operations eventually. Considering there are lots of players who are more interested in the ships themselves than the PvP aspect, it would make a lot of sense. And would also be a way to include more content without adding more ships and classes and messing up the meta again.

Yep. The reason why there are so many PvP centric games in the market. Why waste money developing AI or good writing and story when you can just create some Battle Royale or Arena shooter?

And for people like me who are willing to buy ships purely for use in Operations, it is another reason to open our wallets.

Point? What point? Is there any point to begin with? Maybe people missed the point because there is no point at all.
