PVP (Ranked) Bot Problem

Tashigi.3159Tashigi.3159 Member ✭✭✭

Could we put a restriction on ranked matches? This bot issue is getting out of hand. I'm getting paired with bots half of my matches.
Make it so people can only do ranked after they've reached a certain level in SPVP before they can zone in to ranked matches or make it so the reporting system actually does something for once.

  • Bot problem is getting worse and worse, STOP this now!

    PvP has a number of issues ongoing at the moment. Botting and even hacking based on videos on youtube. I think that the mode has lacked some love from Anet which is such a shame as I think the GW2 PvP has such good potential. Getting rid of bots and hackers would make the mode so much better I think as more and more people will see it as worthwhile and play PvP. In turns, this would fix the matchmaking problems that we can have and stop heavily lop-sided matches. 47 to 500. That's not an even match..

    with how things are ... i just doubt Anet are going to do anything.. they dont seem like they want nor they care about pvp..
    perhaps its time to quit gw2 or take unlimited pause untill they decide to fix pvp and get rid of the hackers/bots..
    there isnt even 1 game anymore where you wont see a bot or hacker.. there is just no point in playing anymore.. this is no longer pvp based of skills or place where you can improve and practice.. this is pure rng about the bots are on your side or enemy team and if you fight against hacker or not.. i will not be buying the upcoming expansion.. as i dont think Anet deserve my money and support anymore.. the game is simply dead

    Bot is better than average player. Get better, you wont meet them in plat (Maybe you stop meeting them even in g2-3)

    i did a very long and detailed post about the bot problem more than 2 years ago. People at first thought it was trollage. Obviously 2 years later, nothing has been done.

    then you have never been plat, here is no bots and i have never seen a hacker even if i do 500+ matches a season 🤣 i saw some teleporters in local arena, but never in ranked match. Idk how teleporting would help then win a match.

    you dont know how instantly teleporting from one node to another could help you win the game?
    I personally saw several necros TP hacking and I was suspicious of couple of thiefs but you thief you can never really tell with them.
    2-3 seasons I go I played with the same bot 3 games in a row ( plat 2 )
    And tbh its not too hard to tp hack, you can stealth as thief and tp anywhere you want and nobody can really suspect you, just run shadowportal and nobody will ever know.
    Or be OOC,as anything with stealth, stealth tp wherever the kitten you want and nobody will know.

  • 2 Mesmer bots in PvP ranked, able to teleport across the map without portal, capping points effortlessly. Please fix.

    I just played a game with 9 bots. No word of a lie I was the only one that voted for a map and the entire match was a joke.

    Yea i've uninstalled the game today because I don't want to get mad about losing games where my team has atleast 1 in them , it really got tiresome. Every 2 games atleast 1-2 bots in ranked games , they ruined my calibration aswell today, there alot of better games out there gonna play the New World Alpha till the BETA and then im moving completely there , maybe I will check back to see the expansion for this game but doubtful as by the looks of it the state of this game is pretty much dead and ignored by the devs especially WvW and PvP.

    It's been years and years and they didn't add anything new instead they let rampant bots run the game , it's funny because people got banned for receiving 25 gold yet BOTS don't seem to get banned at all.

    Played this game on and off since day 1 but even for a f2p game it's not worth it anymore. Gl with the bots lads and hf

    Why are bots so prevalent in pvp matches? The rewards.
    Why is the pvp lobbies so anemic? Lack of updates & balance

    The reward system is nice. But rewards per day could be limited. Nothing that a normal player would notice but would effect a person who is botting pvp all day.

    One could argue that you would encounter less bots if there were more people playing the game mode. Balance updates, new maps, and new game modes would go a long way. Game modes would help a ton and have them available all the time. Just a few ideas that could spice things up would be a Capture Point Push Game Mode, Payload Push Game Mode, VIP Game Mode, and King of the Hill Game Mode. Also while match making is nice in all why not have the ability to bypass it and jump straight into a game?

    Some games make all their money from pvp. Granted they are not mmo's but maybe the mmo's are doing it wrong...

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you
