So I just had a weird game in the late hours...

7 Konigsberg/Nurnberg between the two teams, all of them with identical format names (7 random letters + 1 number), all of them with no camo, all acting exactly the same way. I had 2 Konigsberg alongside at the start, they both peeled out in unison, sailed together to the right flank and shot at the nearest targets until they got killed (with good accuracy it must be said). Honestly they didn't seem so unlike a player, if there had only been 1 you'd never notice but 7 all doing exactly the same thing...

 

If you look up stats for these "players" they all seem to have played only german cruisers and are simply grinding straight up the Hindenburg line with 0 distractions and roughly the same battle count.

 

I am 99% sure these are bots, and not the "bot as an insult" kind of bot.

Hello.

 

I had a Nürnberg just now in a match when playing Saipan.

It was an east europe sounding name. I approached it bow to stern with divebombers but the Nürnberg didn't try to dodge or reacted to them at all.

My first drop did 12k damage. So i turned for another drop and still no reaction. The fire i set with the first drop was quickly repaired. After the second drop the Nürnberg was dead.

I thought that maybe that player was very new and probably didn't even understand what killed him.

But a bot explaination makes more sense i believe.

To be fair as nobody seems to be admitting that there is a scam going on with the recruitment referral scheme it seems right to highlight it.

Dear Mr. Bot, 

 

you should be banned for BOTting. 

 

Kind regards

Me

This has been happening for a few days now.

 

lots and lots of bot konigbergs (why that ship i dont know) seem to have crawled out of the woodworks recently.

 

Notes, they dont dodge shells really, they slow down and speed up when fired at, rarely broadside (always angled to what ship they are targetting is shooting a them) always pushing and never use torpedoes.

 

dont switch ammo type either just HE only.

 

i saw one get two kills though against actual players so that speaks volumes about this playerbase i guess lol.

I just played 2 battles at Tier 5 and there were 4 of these bots with random names and German cruisers in both of the battles. I hope WG will be able to deal with that soon as it makes it quite a lot less fun to grind ships at that Tier.

I think some people want to benefit from recruitment station rewards and creat such accounts. Don't know how they function but this is bad.
