New Ranked mode increased botting?

Today in Ranked I had the privilege of having the same bot Yammy two matches in a row, even though I let time go by so i wouldnt encounter him. I play on both NA and EU and I've noticed lots of bots in matches.

 

I think the irrevocable ranks are driving an uptick in botting since it is much easier to fail upward. 

And no, don't tell me to report them. WG will do nothing. Waste of time. I've done it many times, only to encounter the same AFKers and botters again and again.

It happens.. ive seen them too. Its really phun once you have 3 of them. And then you notice, the enemys had 1 too aaand you almost still won... sigh

 

Nothing really to be done about it. Unless WG decides at some point to introduce a limit of games you can play per day. Should be obvious, that someone with 100 games per day and close to 0 damage is botting :/

I reported the same bot twice in a week and WG were not in the slightest bit interested. I sent in replays and his stats, in which he had accumulated 4800 random battles even though the account was only 40 days old. It was very clearly a bot, border humping with guns pointed off the map all game.

 

Reply was along the lines of ‘You do not need to report bots or AFK players, so stop bothering us and let our 10/10 auto systems catch him’.
 

I asked what the point of a specific section in the support tickets is for labelled ‘bots/afk’ if we are not supposed to report these people, and their answer was basically :cap_yes: *ticket closed*.

I had one team tonight where the highest win rate player after me had 46% overall WR with the lowest at 38%@ 5k battles for an average of the rest of the team at 44,7% win rate, very hard to work with that kind of low skill team.
It is not about stat shaming but when you have Ranked full of ultra bad players and bots it defeats the purpose of competitive gameplay.
Hence my most recent topic.

If there are so many bad players it should be easier for all the nonbads.

If they were evenly distributed between teams, sure. But we all know that's not how it works :cap_book:

sadly thats not how it works  good players can carry their team if his team stays alive and have at least SOME form of stallin the enemy team.

 

if 1 side gets steamrolled or his own side his team dies theres nothing a good player can do
