Hi,

last night, I played nearly 40 games (tier 3, multiplayer).

Quickly, I saw that, in each game, 12 or 13 of players, in both teams, were ... BOTS.

First, I found that their names were weird, that these "players" were the same in each game (I noticed their names) and I tried, in vain, to see their stats/profiles ... none cause they don't exist.

 

Is it normal when the game indicated more than 10.000 players online ?

At the end, I was able to identify true players (2, max 3) in my team and in the other team. Bots' movements were ridiculous, especially at the end of games, when you have few alive enemies. They didn't know where to go and often, bots went round in circles. I only had to pay attention to real players, to kill them and after, it was too easy to win.

 

Balance sheet : 1 draw, 2 defeats and more than 30 victories ...

 

WHAT IS THIS MASQUERADE ?

 

Sorry for my english.

Bots or play 3vs3. What's your choice?

I don't care about waiting several minutes to play real players.

7 vs 7, 10 vs 10 is enough at night, I know there are less low tiers at this moment but 15 vs 15 with 13 bots ... did you play that ? It's not a game, it's a waste of time.

It's good for stats but bad for interest in the game.

Even if you could wait 5min, other people in queen would have left to play other games or other tiers already long time ago usually.

Hello, this is not a bug. The Bots are there so the low tiers are playable for new players. If you don't want to face bots, I would recommend playing a higher tier. :honoring:

He could also switch servers if he’s on EU after the population switches to NA.  More players=less bots too.

Thanks, and good idea but I fear my connection wouldn't be as good as I have with EU.

I tried many times without real success ... and continuous lag.

I noticed that's not a bug.

Have a good day.

I dropped to Tier 3 for an op a couple of days ago, and thought the bots had improved. 

3 bots managed to cap  and win on mines against 2 real players, and did a good job of hiding behind the buildings.

Just a side-note. Some of those bots are better than the humans you would otherwise enconter. Those early tiers are for learning the basics. If you want more difficult gameplay you have to go to tier 5 and above. Just don't be surprised if you die fast a lot then.

Remember, it's just a game!

I have three accounts and I am good enough until tier 8, then ... I think it's a different mindset which I am distant from, but I'll learn.

Hi

Half of those 40 games, I really noticed bots really went round in circles and were without interest especially to end the games, to find the last enemies and win.
Their names were weird but I also identified them as bots with their silly movements and crazy location. When you lead 13-2 and that you are the only one to try to find the last two enemies and your twelve "fellows" which repeats the same path as bots would do in a factory ... in/near your own base ... zombies !
I was wondering that when you don't see enemies for a minute or more, bots seem as disconnected.
