  1. Moin Moin! Mir ist die letzten Tage aufgefallen, das im COOP "Skipper" unterwegs sind, die folgendes Profil haben: - vor kurzem angemeldet - NUR CooP - unmöglich viele Gefechte in so kurzer Zeit - komischer Spielstil (selbst für Anfänger) So etwas geht nur mit BOTS!! In 14 Tagen mehr als 1600 Gefechte, das sind 120+ am Tag. Bei 10 Min je Gefecht macht das 20h netto Spielzeit, JEDEN Tag! Also haben wir hier jetzt auch die Botseuche. Übrigens alle aus dem gleichen Clan... ^^ Siehe beigefügte Bildschirmfotos. (Orginale sind auf Anfrage einsehbar) Bitte schaut euch eure Gefechtsberichte und Stats an. Meldet Auffälligkeiten an WG! Ich glaube niemand hier will asiatische Verhältnisse. Auf dem dortigen Server sind Geisterspiele mittlerweile normal!! Und im Übrigen bin ich der Meinung, der MM sollte (skillbasiert) überarbeitet werden!! Danke für eure Hilfe! Pepe_LePew
  2. Hallo zusammen, betrifft zwar nur Coop aber trotzdem: Der MM füllt ja Teams nach 30 Sekunden mit Bots auf wenn nicht genug reale Spieler da sind. Das führt dazu, dass ich gerade 2 mal hintereinander Matches hatte, bei denen 9 Bots auf der einen Seite dann schon mal 6 Bots im eigenen Team zu stehen hatten. (Von dem, was hier schonmal als Bot bezeichnet wird rede ich nicht). Solche Matches gehen üblicherweise total verloren weil die "eigenen Bots" immer schlechter sind (andere Tierstufe?) als die Gegnerbots. Entwder sterben sie direkt oder tauschen sich hier und da mal weg. Danach steht es - wie hier auch - 3 zu 7 für die Bots. Ich wäre dafür, die Wartezeit zu verlängern. 3 Bots zum Auffüllen sollte das Maximum sein. Mfg Tank_TEC

    Bots in WoWs

    Hallo zusammen, ist in WoWs eigentlich erlaubt die Bot-Programme einzusetzen? Bin mir (fast) sicher heute einen im Team im Zwielichtgefecht gesehen zu haben. Da lohnt es sich auch - 9mal Programm laufen zu lassen, da kommt so einiges am Schmutz automatisch zusammen. Replay habe ich, falls Interesse besteht, kann ich anhängen. Wie ich überhaupt auf die Idee komme - ich kenne die Bots aus WoT, gleicher Muster: zuerst stehen bleiben, beim Beschuss wird reagiert und danach wird eine mehr oder weniger zufällige Richtung eingeschlagen.

    Matchmaker Question

    Hi, nearly 30 battles in and leveling up to Tier 3 across Cruisers & Destroyers but not BB's yet. I play on the EU server from about 10:30 pm evenings in random battles but always get 1 player v 1 player or sometimes 2 v 2 and all the other ships are bots - is this normal?

    Huge increase in chat bans

    Over the past few weeks, it seems like there has been a massive increase in chat bans across the board. Clan mates, friends, discord members, streamers, everyone seems to be getting chat banned for almost no reason. I got people in the clan who dont even swear unless they are in private voice coms who are getting chat banned regularly. People who dont even speak in chat at all getting chat banned. People getting chat banned when they have not even been playing the game, or getting chat bans randomly when they afk in port and not played for a while or receiving them in the middle of the night. What is going on? Some new bots just going through and doing blanket bans ect? Have not seen a chat mod in port chats for years, BigBadVuk was the last chat mod i have seen, that must have been 3 years ago now.
  6. Hallo, Ich habe so eben am frühen Morgen eine weitere frustrierende Erfahrung mit WoWs gemacht. Die Random Spiele werden mit Bots aufgefüllt. Ich habe Tier 5 gespielt und die Teams wurden zumeist mit lauter Königsberg's aufgefüllt, die allesamt von Bots gesteuert wurden. Die Bots waren alle auf den 22.07.2019 als "Spieler" registriert. Sie tragen Wirrwarr aus Buchstaben und Ziffern als Name, sind aber nicht mit dem ":" vor und hinter dem Namen als Bot gekennzeichnet. Ich verstehe, dass am frühen Morgen auf dem EU Server die Spieler fehlen, aber Bots gehören nicht in ein Zufallsgefecht für erfahrene Spieler. Aber jetzt kommt das wirklich Frustrierende: Es war nicht so, dass jedes Team gleich viele Bots bekam. Es gab erhebliche unterschiede in Anzahl der Königsberg-Bots pro Team. Und in einigen Spielen taten viele Bots nichts! Sie standen nur rum oder bewegten sich mal kurz, während das Gegnerteam kaum Bots beinhaltete. Im Anhang ein Screenshot von der Teamaufstellung meines letzten Gefechtes am heutigen Morgen. Ich dachte, es macht vielleicht Spaß, diese ganzen Königberg's mit der Cesare wegzuklatschen. Teilweise waren 8 Königsberg's-Bots im Team. Seit wann werden solche Spiele mit solchen Bots in Random aufgefüllt? Was soll das? Warum sind die Teamaufstellungen teilweise so unfair? Was wird da getestet? PS an die WG-Mitarbeiter: Spieler zu haben ist euer größtes Kapital. Niemand gibt für ein Spiel Geld aus, welches keine Spieler mehr hat. Mit dem ganzen Grind-Geschichten generiert ihr zwar momentan wieder mehr Spieler, aber irgendwann kotzt dieser ewige Grind die Spieler an. Es ist einfach frustrierend. Man wird ja nicht dazu gezwungen, aber trotzdem versucht man es. Und erst spät realisiert man, wie viel Zeit man für so ein Schiff investiert hat. Und manchen fehlen nach wochenlangen Grind z.B. nur 100 Marken. Ich kann euch verstehen: Es ist unglaublich schwer die Spieler bei Laune zu halten und die Konkurrenz ist auf dem Spielemarkt extrem groß, aber die Zeit der Leute zum Spielen ihrer Spiele ist begrenzt. WoWs ist ein tolles und interessantes Spiel, aber mit diesen ewigen Grinds frustriert ihr die Leute irgendwann. Und ich befürchte, dass es sich eher zum Negativen auswirkt. Versucht die Spieler nicht ständig zu frustrieren. Auch die Sache mit den Bots ist frustrierend.
  7. WG going to do anything about them Könisberg bots starting to suck the fun out of the game last night had 8 bots on both sides wasnt very fun to play or enjoyable,them starting to suck the will to play little by little

    bot detection? what's that?

    Edited How hard is to detect that WG? Do you not have the resources to create a simple program that flags accounts for a manual review after they spam battles for two days straight? Or you just don't care? I'm seriously asking.

    bots names

    Hi! In co-op battles we meet a lot of names of the bot-captains from various countries and navies. But I feel there is Japan underrepresented. For example some noteworthy names appears missing: Examples: Admiral Togo, who led the japanese fleet in the battle of Tsushima against the russian fleet. or Vice-Admiral Mikawa, who was temporarily successful in the battle of Savo island (Guadalcanal campaign) or even Admiral Yamamoto, the strategist behind the attack on Pearl Harbour, who was honoured by WG with a collection. And there are for sure more names available.

    CO-OP: Bots Vs Torps (A theory).

    Apparently there have been recent changes to the way Bots react to torps in Co-Op mode. They seem to slip past your torps like leaves on the wind. However, I play Co-op mode for the first battle of every session (I take the Southern Dragon out for a spin to see if my Internet connection is going to let me play or just teleport me round the map for 5 mind before DCing) and I think I've noticed something. They only dodge the torps aimed at them. Like most half decent players, whenever possible I launch multipurpose torps that have a chance of hitting more than one ship. Recently it seems to be that the ship I have targeted changes course, but my secondary target just blunders into them. So my suggestion is that people target their chosen ship as usual but before launching torps switch target with the X key and then launch the torps at the original target. I'll be trying this out myself over the next week or so, but I'd be interested to hear if it works out for others as well.
  12. Bonjour, Avez-vous remarquez une recrudescence des bots ou afk (à 0 points d'XP en fin de partie ou moins de 50 disons) ? Peut-être que je n'étais pas attentif avant ? J'en ai eu à chaque partie hier (13) (dans mon équipe ou dans l'équipe adverse peu importe). Question subsidiaire, quel est l'intérêt de lancer un bot qui prends 0 XP à fin ? Bonnes nav' PS : bien sûr il m'est arrivé d'être AFK (jeu qui crash, freebox qui fait une pause café...)
  13. Hallo Leute, mal ne subjektive Frage über die total subjektive Empfindung… Kommt es mir nur vor, oder wurde was an der KI (Bots) von den Gegnern in den Szenarien und Co-Op Gefechten etwas verändert? Gefühlsmäßig spielen die jetzt besser, als 2/3 der Spieler in Random… Die Treffen immer(fast), weichen brav allen Torps aus, und zünden dich mit der ersten Salve an. Also heute 6x „Die letzte Grenze“ gespielt, 0 wins. Sagt mir, das ich Paranoia habe. Greetzzz...
  14. Some time ago I was watching youtube when I got a video ad specifically aimed at offering me "boosting" in WoWs. It was very professionally made with a voice over offering their services in perfect English. It was clearly a high production value advertisement. I was surprised. Somebody clearly had a sizable marketing budget aimed at offering "power leveling" or "boosting", whichever you decide to call it. It's just fancy words for "botting". Then I got curious, so I did a quick google and found no less than seven different "boosting" sites on the first page of my search results. Apparently, botting in WoWs is big business. It started to dawn on me that not every terrible player you see out there are wearing their pants as a hat. Not all of them are "glue-eaters" as some streamer likes to call them. Those guys on your team that die needlessly within the first 5 minutes of the match are likely to be bots. Those guys that never talk or care about team play could very likely indeed be bots. The thing is that these botting services require that you use a premium account. So, Wargaming gets their money from this - which is smart, because that makes them less likely to care and deal with the problem. I guess the "logic" behind WGs apathy is that they shouldn't spend money on fighting something that earns them money. With this many different services offering botting for money, it's clear that botting is rampant on this game - and that's not counting the possible numbers of privately run bots. Frankly, it has been terrible playing lately. The quality of matches seems to have dropped into the toilet. I have noticed streamers mentioning this too. Thoughts? Ideas? I'm looking forward to hearing them, as well as the inevitable influx of "this is fine, you are wrong, WG never makes mistakes" posts.
  15. So lately i have to feeling there are non human players in match. I'm not here to brag any stats or something but 3 games in a row top scorer with half team under 300-400 xp. You can see ships with no camo idle @ spawn that start moving after receiving 1 hit. Totally 1 sided games where 1 team ( mine or the other ) doesn't lose a single ship. Can WG just put a block on high tier ships having many games but very low PR / XP / damage / frags / or whatever u think is indicator of botting?
  16. Hi all, Apparently the "new" v0.7.0 "Training Room" will not have operational BOTs (moving/firing)! IMHO this is a big shame because current "unofficial" implementation of "Training Room" has it all... Leo "Apollo11"
  17. Cuanto más juego, más lo creo. WG usa bots para rellenar las partidas y cuando alcanzas una buena racha, WG te pone en una partida llena de bots para que sea más difícil ganar. Vosotros pensáis lo mismo¿? Que no nos engañen, hay bots en las partidas, cualquiera que haya jugado al menos unas miles de partidas se ha dado cuenta alguna vez de que hay algún barco de su equipo que no puede ser otra cosa que un bot. SOLO HAY QUE JUGAR unas miles de partidas y te das cuenta. HAY BOTs, No es un cuento. REALMENTE HAY BOTs. Que WG lo permita, o sean incluso suyos es otra cosa. Pero haberlos, los hay!. Un abrazo a tod@s.

    Why even bother?

    Seriously, why do I even bother.... I usually do not rant at games, but this is just too much. Last couple of days I am being constantly either bottom tiered or matched with bots. I used to not believe that bots existed in WoWs, but this game opened my eyes. No matter what I wrote in the chat or pinged on the map - my team just went full bot and ignored everything. They sailed some predefined invisible line ignoring ALL game objectives. Why do I even bother wining? Why do I care about my stats? Its pointless, because I have no influence on them. It is all in my teams hands. You say carry harder? Sorry, but there is a limit and carrying 10 players is impossible. In this game I was playing with my buddy and I was denying B to the enemy while he tried C. I got pinned down by Atlanta and Belfast combining radar but I managed to kill the Shiratsuyu. My team ALL went all A and even if I removed the Shira (their biggest threat) they still refused to help me out on B. All they would need to do is push into B and kill the Atlanta and Belfast. Instead they went sailing the Caribbean even tho that Morten was spotting the enemy team and fighting them - ALONE ! I died within first couple of minutes of the game and I ended up in top 4 players. That is just sad. And frankly this is happening way more often than I can manage. I am constantly thrown into 100% "throw away" games where I can have little or no influence at all. And this is supposed to be fun? Arent I playing games in order to have FUN? To be honest I am close to abandoning the game completely. Dont get me wrong ... I love the game. Love it. I love watching vids, love hanging in the forums and with my fellow scrubs. It is the only game I play. But this? I rather go watch Project Runway with my wife.

    Bots in Random Battle ??

    I managed to install WoWs via steam and created a new account. Nothing special so far. But unlocking the random battles and starting them, i noticed that there are bots in there. In both teams. Every team is also limited to ten members, on more, no less. Wait time for matchmaking is most of the time less than 30 seconds. Did i miss something? Random Battles are normaly suppossed to have flexible team size and only human members. Is this only for the steam client? Can someone confirm this behavoir for ships of tier V or higher? Thanks in advance.
  20. - You are in Operation Aegis, sailing closer and closer to an enemy battleship, taking advantage of the fact that its captain is busy shooting at one of your hapless allies, and finally, you are in range - you launch your torpedoes. - Almost immediately, the battleship changes course, in a direction that ensures that it will not be hit with a single one of those torpedoes. It is almost as if the AI captain knew the exact moment when those torpedoes hit the water. Considering he was busy training his guns on another ship, in a completely different direction from you, that was no mean feat. Does this sound familiar? I should probably say, at this point, that I realize at least some of the difficulties that programmers are beset with. Designing an AI (or should it be VI?) captain that is capable of presenting a balanced challenge to human players, must be a very difficult task. How should you deal with, for instance, the threat that a well placed torpedo spread represents? If the AI captain never changes course until it actually spots incoming torpedoes as per normal spotting mechanics, AI battleships would be nothing but food for the Torpedo God. If the AI automatically registers any incoming torpedoes as soon as they are launched, the problem becomes the opposite - only those spreads that are undodgeable from the start, will have any chance of striking home. I obviously can't say for certain, but I have lately been having the impression that some variant of the latter of the two abovementioned AI builds is represented in the current Operations - enemy AI captains will instantly know when torpedoes are incoming, and take steps to avoid them. Only, sometimes they don't. I had a game in my Perth about a week ago, where I decided to try and trick an enemy AI König captain. I launched only one of my torpedoes, and waited to gauge the reaction. The enemy battleship didn't react in the slightest, but sailed straight on. This prompted me to launch the rest of my torpedoes, and they all struck home, one after the other, sending the König to the bottom. I have been trying to figure out what made that torpedo launch different from all the rest. Why didn't the AI captain take evasive action this time? There might of course be any number of possible explanations, but one thing that struck me afterwards was, that I had probably launched all of those torpedoes from within my smoke cover. If so, this might imply that the AI program is simulating the fact that you can, if you have sharp eyes (and a good screen resolution), actually see the little splashes when launched torpedoes break the water after going over the side of the ship. But this is obviously impossible if a smoke screen is in the way. In other words, the AI programmer is doing her best to be fair to us: The AI captain will indeed know when torpedoes are being launched at it - but only if this information would also have been available to a sharp-eyed human player with his wits about him! I don't know if I am on the right track, here. I might not even be close. But I thought this would be a good subject for a discussion, and so here are my two cents' worth to begin with.* So, any thoughts on this? * I haven't even started speculating about whether AI captain skills include the common torpedo evasion tactic of randomly altering course ands speed. How you would try to gauge that, is beyond me.

    Bot Naming and Shaming

    I've seen it multiple times now, where people basicly move forwards and backwards whilst doing nothing but shoot at random targets. I am getting sick and tired of these things, cause if they are actual humans, then i would feel sorry for their kids. I know naming and shaming is not a good way, however i believe it is the only way to produce a good healthy gaming community. Yes, people might suck at their games, yes people might not understand certain aspects, however those people show more life then bots. Therefore, i believe this naming and shaming is not so bad after all, especially not if you show proof of gameplay. Edited. This post has been edited by the moderation team due to ''Naming and Shaming''
  22. It is not an exaggeration when I say that in every single game in PvP there is at least 2 on each team there is either AFK or botting the entire game. I know some suffer from bad connections or are using potato computers but none of those can be used as a valid excuse for being AFK for most of the battle. If being AFK is caused by incompatible mods then that is not a valid excuse either for testing mods is done in PvE in order not to become AFK in PvP battles. Then we have the true bots which can be clearly differentiated from the AFK'ers/late loaders, not that it makes any difference as they all are ruining the game for the community as a whole. It doesn't make any difference if a player is bottinh, AFK or justy loads late due to low performance PCs as they are all equally bad for the game and the game experience and I give all of them reports for botting just to make Wargaming aware that there are serious game issues with AFK'ers, botters and late loaders and that they are hurting their product. Is it really too much ask for you, Wargaming, to act on those issues of players that are either deliberately botting or are AFK for most if not all of the game either deliberately or due to other reasons?
  23. Looking at wows-numbers page I found these suspicious characters: [edited] [edited] [edited] Are they WG employed bots to populate the games? Or what?
  24. Technically they're not bots (although they try to do the same "effortless XP grab" bots do) but then they're not playing poorly either as they're not playing at all. I think we need a separate afk report category.
  25. So liebe Community, ihr kennt mich ja eigentlich als Seriösen Spieler ( hoffe ich ) ich bin mir aber gerade nicht Sicher ob ich meinen Augen trauen konnte. Ich möchte es euch ( und vielleicht WG ) aber ins Bewustsein rufen und mache deswegen diesen Threat anstatt es nur an WG zu reporten, da mir diese Art Bot vollkommen unbekannt scheint ( normalerweise sind sie ja einfach zu erkennen anhand dessen das sie rumstehen und dann plötzlich aufwachen sobald was gespottet wird ) Gerade 2 Taiho Gefechte gemacht, und gegen nen Träger ( Essex ) gespielt der Jäger Deck hatte. Aufgrund der späten Urzeit 2x gegen ihn ( es ) gespielt. zwei Sachen sind mir aufgefallen wie der Bot geschrieben war: 1 Jäger am Anfang zu Mitte der Karte geschickt, oder aber wenn sie abgeschossen waren und neue aufgestiegen sind und zwar alle 3 ( also 21 Flugzeuge ) 2 sobald ein squad von mir gespottet war oder ich mich in die nähe des Squads bewegt habe, verfolgten die Flugzeuge ( alle 3 ) dieses Squad bis sie es vernichtet hatten. Da meine Flugzeuge ein bisschen schneller sind als Essex Flieger ( habe 5% Speed Modul ) hab ich diesen Blob einmal über die komplette Karte gezogen und dann gestrafed. Da mir das so Dumm vorkam hab ich beim 2. mal drauf geachtet, selbes Ergebnis. Im 2. Gefecht War es genau das selbe. Ziel des Borprogramms war es übrigens am Ende über dem Träger zu fliegen / es hat sich ergeben weil die Flieger meine TBs bis zum Landen verfolgt haben. Ich habe die 2 Replays, werde ( weil ich jetzt zu müde bin ) das ganze Aufnehmen, wenn sie jemand vorab haben will dann schicke ich sie ihm gerne. Naming /Shaming ist ja verboten deswegen lade ich sie nicht hier hoch. PM an mich. ( Bzw mir wäre es natürlich lieber die Replays hier hochzuladen, kann mir da jemand "Rechtssicherheit" geben ? ) Nach eurer Meinung zu Bots brauch ich ja denke ich mal nicht Fragen, aber eventuell könnt ihr meine Erfahrung bestätigen. Ich bin einfach Schockiert , gerade weil CV Bots die durchaus was "machen" ( Autoattacks mit den DBs hab ich vergessen und nen paar Fliegerkills ) dem Normalem Spieler ja garnicht auffallen ( können ). Sobald sich dann jemand das Replay angesehen hat könnt ihr ja eure Meinung schreiben ob ich mit meiner Vermutung richtig liege. PS: Sollte ich jetzt zu viele Anfragen bekommen, dann schick ich den Link an ausgewählte Leute, nehmt mir das bitte nicht übel.
