just wanna asking because lately  i found lot of bot players in T7-T9 battles. i have report many of them in forums but i feels they numbers just decress a bit. all WG do is just wait for players come and report them, just a passive job. WG never told what will happen to those bot that has been verified no list of name that has been banned or something. our reports is really working? or just keep reports for not thing. why WG don't try to go out and hunt them some time might be better than wait for reports.

Well the thing is; the in-game report system never does any meaningful punishment to the suspects other than to decrease the suspects' karma points (which is a meaningless feature in the game).

The real way to send a report here:

i has report them here. in-game report is just a fun stuff when you want to make some one angry.
and i want to know that our reports is working or not if WG banned those bot then where the baning list? if not why we need to keep report them for?
more way to report might be good if it really work out.

Yes this game is full of them. Doubt anything has been done. Can tell by the names and numbers used and then in-game.

You will never get any confirmation from support over any action taken from reports of bots as I understand it.

Privacy laws and all that crap. Well at least that's the excuse offered. I suspect the system is deliberately awkward and opaque as WG don't really want mass bot reports - it would hurt numbers. And a properly policed system would require WG to employ more people looking into reports.

WG does investigates bot reports, it takes a long time to confirm if a player is a bot, or just really bad - it has to be done correctly for legal reasons.

Yeah, 100+ games per day over multiple consecutive 24hr time periods, done by "people" , showing next to no damage per game, getting t10 in 3 days, is completely 100% doable, by totally dedicated "players"....

We must be sure they are allowed to use their rights according to the law, & treat them fairly & give them the benefit of doubt, in case "they" feel impuned.....

Well, I'm no detective but the following examples are there in plain sight in the hall of fame.  1200 games in a 7 day period that is 4 games every single hour of the day for that time with a WR of 40%.  

Directives and Hall of fames are just made for bots and they are as blatant as the nose on my face.

I suggest that the Hall of fame points be a fraction of your overall base XP score, like 10/20%. I would be committing suicide with that proposal, but at least it rewards the performers and is much fairer.

Thanks for updating. Wish WG can catch them all. Kudos for that.

In the chinese forum, they update in a thread how many was banned in certain days / weeks.

@Ordrazz and @RalphTheTheatreCat there was a thread in Japan forum that players be limited to 30 - 50 games a day. Bots don't rest. It is a very extreme implementation but, mmmmm....:Smile_unsure:

Personally, I want to torture the violator before they get banned.

 

As much as possible don't post the pattern in the forum, they might read it and edit their script. Post it in the said forum:

https://asia.wargaming.net/support/en/products/wows/help/20017/20018/20019/

 

I also noticed that the pattern has changed recently, to fool the admins that they are legit players playing poorly. Keep a look out.

They are also getting bold, as they are also playing in high tiers lately.

I'm sure the same happened in the English forums but it just died off.  One thing players look for is transparency and providing figures gives the community something tangible to help allay their concerns.  For many years in every WG game its just an afterthought and the community is just left with, "Yes.  We are doing something".

This server is full of bots or farming accounts unfortunately.

Sometimes you can tell by just by looking at their names. They are either just numbers or gibberish letters, ie something that a normal, properly functioning person would not name themselves.

They did something:

Openly guillotined a few individual,

Does not report a large number of individuals because bots have human rights, and they think bots will unite then have a go at their lawsuit.

Some of those individuals above keep reviving as new lives and start it all over again.

P.S. It sounds like certain government in a specific era

I am all for the name and shame. This one rare occasion, I support that cesspit that is reddit.

More than happy to chat ban the shiznit out of you for dropping the "F" bomb. It's like they dont think 10 year old kids dont know these words and might be offended lol.

Mind you, here we are still waiting for a port UI that works like its 2019 not 1953 so I wouldnt hold your breath waiting for results.

You DO realize that it technically counts as a violation, right? Not to sound soft or anything but try to limit or omit your use of profanity (or at least do it in such a way that people would be too busy laughing about it to care) in chat.

 

And what are these U.I issues you talk about? I've rarely if ever had issues with the U.I (and a good click-away-and-reload solves what I do get). Its a little slow at times but I blame the internet for that.

When you see a Battleship or Cruiser hog the edge of the map or stuck in an island all game and hes not shooting at the closest enemy at 10km but instead at the ones that are 15-20km away.

Of course it is, just saying its dumb since kids in primary swear like troopers anyway so who are they worried about offending? Also im pretty sure you click an "18+" thing when installing the game yes? 

 

U.I? Like where the UI stalls and takes forever to do something. Cant select "battle" because its having a tantrum. Super slow while selecting signals, modules, consumables etc. Stalls while trying to browse your ships.

The fact it makes my GTX1080 work harder in port than it does playing the actual game.

Its a well known issue.
