So this is now a thing. Does anyone believe that this has not already been tested on us unknowingly? Also at all tiers. Explains so much.

It's been a thing for a while. Tier 1 to 3 originally. Now changed to tier 1 to 4.

 

They never exactly tried to hide it.

Game is so good and technically polish that even bots wanted to play it now.:bajan:

Question is if bots wanted to use premium tank how they can purchase it?

Are they all named after stars and stuff?  I think I heard that they were.  It's my fault that we have them.  I use my free xp to skip those battle tiers.  I wonder how BZB feels about this change to potentially 100% of his matches.

Look at it from a positive view: They are working out the bugs now for when they have to add them to tiers 5-9.

Personally, I think server merging would alleviate the need for bots during low population times.  Not everyone understands(or is willing) to switch servers when you start getting 3 min queue times and 7v7 games back to back to back.  Like.... maybe keep bots on standby for the baby tiers.... but they can stay at a lower incidence.

However, despite the poor level of play you may witness.... there’s been no live secret testing of bots at any tier. Lol

Or even an option to automatically log into the most populated server, just like now where one can automatically log into the server with the strongest signal strength.

Bots are part of the dying of this game. If you have a healthy population, there's no need for bots. The lower populations drop, the higher tiers you'll see bots at.

Cross platform play is about all that can stop it for a while.

Good players cap when something goes wrong,

Bad players cap when something goes right.

I'm fortunate that I have internet that's good enough to allow me to play on either server lag free. That's not true for most other players however.

Low tiers have always had low population counts, and honestly I think that adding bots to tier II and III games would have been a good idea years ago. I'm not as supportive of tier IV bots, but it's still not a bad idea considering that I've always felt that tier III and IV are bottom tier far too often.

It's sad to see what has become of the game. Most people are just playing out their remaining gold. Seems like it'll die out completely within a year.

Just a reminder that people have been saying that the game is dying/dead for well over five years now.

Some of those years had an alarming decline in player numbers.

 

It's evened out now but only time will tell if they can actually hold onto players. Without crossplay I doubt Xbox has alot of vitality left.


MOEs so I can pretend like they matter

At this point I feel that a large percentage of the current players will still be playing the game for quite some time unless WG start actively making the game worse (like if they added Arty Stun Mechanics, for example). It would certainly be nice to see crossplay added, though.

It should stay stagnant for a while. However without growth decline is inevitable. The worse our balance gets the more new players we won't be able to keep so the only solution is to get the players we have on both systems currently to get matched together.

For god sake ....

Try to think (at least once in your lifetime) outside the box!

Remember we had a discussion about bots a few months back. You said there are no bots and cannot imagine ever will ... (similiar like that) and need a proof.

Bang - a few week later WG confirmed it ....

 

Only up to tier 3, now we are already at 4 ...

Well, five years ago this game wouldn't need bots ... The population was never below 15k. Maybe you should rethink your point of view ...
