    Just one of the few reasons ranked isnt worth much to play since it's got 0 support in the game.

    I get matched with them every day. So many wasted games.

    Yeah with the wintrading starting around season 5 / 6 I quit ranked games after season 7. I do my 10 games every now n them I'm amazed at how may games have a 4v5 or bot.

    Ranked isn't worth play and hasn't been for a long long time.

    Played a couple of games today. Where the bots were not adjusted for renewed coliseum and got stuck just trying to walk through a wall (I guess before the change, you could just walk there, but not anymore)

    Now my 1st love in this game & GW1 as been pvp, im not a BOT, before any one says :-D
    This is my take on it....
    This season alone iv played1413 match's over 2 accounts
    Total of 6107 ranked matches over all
    so iv seen a real change in the amount of these BOTS, i think this is even bigger then Anet are willing to admit... or are they in control ?
    Most teams seem to have 2 or 3 bots n that's seems to be the deciding factor in the out come of the match,
    You might all so have one real player in charge of the bots, A Handler if you like, there job is to stop any activity that might not make the game go there way,
    So the team with the most bots win = Most Profit
    The handlers Direct or RAGE @ real players, Sadly any one that doesn't know better, to obvious kill zones, that the bots will be programed to go to, so to tie up the game or just keep farming points from one point,
    Iv have probable been reported Hundreds of times, or at least threatened by these people for just not doing what they want to throw the match, to which i say PLS DO, I HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE, Anet can check my Data, i don't cheat, how about U ?.....
    & if the fight still isn't going there way they simply log out on one side or the other
    I have become pretty good @ spotting this activate, And play accordingly, i love trolling the throwers n bots, high lighting them for all to see
    I apologies to any one that's encountered me in game & just thinks I'm rude, i am not, just passionate about my pvp
    I will try to help any one that asks, but if it looks like a bot n walks like a bot, Expected to get called such :-D
    I'm a whale biologist :-D
    Any one from GW1 who knows how to pull there enemy, and block them like the good old Bot riddled Jade Query days should do well in pvp now, its all about pulling them off point n keeping them busy, And ignoring the moron Handlers raging @ U :-D
    THINK for YOURSELVES
    Hope this tactic helps yall next season
    Most of all HF
    Tomo

    Same Bots now as then WHY ?

    ( ...) and that free accounts could probably deposit gold or send gold to the main accounts.

    I think that's why it takes Anet so long to ban those bots and their "owners", they are probably waiting for them to send the Gold/Items so they can track the owners account and ban their main.

    However if that's the thing I find it difficult to believe that Anet wouldn't have access to the IP addresses with which the accounts were made.

    IP adress for cable and adsl are not static so if you ban an IP you risk to deny to play to a normal player . This is the reason why ban is on user i think

    Isn't there a way to ban people based on the unique ID from a piece of hardware within the machine?

    I could spin up a new virtual machine in minutes with a unique MAC address.

    They could ban you for your unique Hardware ID and that will guarantee you will need to play in another computer. Blizzard does that and probably you have heard already how effective their bans are.
    The problem is not that easy to separate bots from humans nowadays, the scripts has become so complex than just watching you can't be 100% sure that account is not a bot.

    The most accurate way is to analyze your RAM in search of the programs which run those bots but we know what the community thinks about that. So you will have to deal with the bots or a program which analyze your RAM while playing with the game.

    Either way, how can we be sure those bots are not from Anet itself to avoid the collapse of PvP because lack of population? They wouldn't be the firsts to do it Fortnite is being doing it for years (with another objective in mind for sure but the results are the same).

    The bots I’ve seen are easy to spot and never go to jump spots.

    We can take the tinfoil hats off - these are not ANet bots to keep pvp seemingly alive. If a bot is playing 3,000 games, just think about the economics of it for a player.

    you assume they are putting that money into the economy, if they are run by Anet that wouldn't happen?

    They do run a certain amount of bots for the obvious reasons (lower que times, higher player numbers, etc etc) so....obviously they wont ban themselfs.
    As far as the players bots goes they buy their ban immunity because the bot program is not free, it has a good income and guess who is taking a slice of that sales pie :)

    maybe the bots are run by anet so the pvp queues are not too long ? :p

    PvP is dead maybe?
    Also maybe to get people with high wins to lose, and people with high losses to win?

    I haven't seen any "I lost 12 games in a row" threads lately.

    Bronze league means you're worse than a bot. Bots have been occupying mid-silver for over a year.

    As I said, they are not so easy to fight. They just lose in games where they run solo in mid against 3 or 4 ennemies.

    Just lost a game vs 2 bots.

    Thing is,
    They designed for
    1 guy DPS
    1 guy CC

    They hope your team stacks and gets CC'ed while other bot DPS

    Thats how I lost.
    I wasn't first to die too, my team... One guy just can't sustain, he drops like a pancake. Can't win 2v3 fights.
    When bots TARGET.
    Then their goal is for you to get CC'ed and other guy DPS coordination.

    Split them up. I told him that.
    Just survive and kite.
    Nope, he ate the CC, he flopped like a pancake and died.

    its highly unlikely to lose this much, kitten even in plat 2 if I was afk 12 games in a row I bet I would win 1 and maybe even 2 of them.
    people are really kitten bad at this game, and somehow tossed to games they dont belong.
    bots are tragically bad at this game and they are better then average player
    if players are stuck with bots at 1000-1100 rank, all it means that the bots are as good as them at the game. Im sorry but thats the hash truth.
