They don't ban because wargaming cares more about the $ the guy spends on premium than they do about having a good game.

because the player, who is well known, who goes by the opposite of Slimey-blue+yellow-1-1 who is the worlds most obvious bot, who got account reset 2 weeks ago after bottong fir 30K games, and in that time now has 6K games again. 

 

I never actually thought the green was a bot the first time I faced off against him in a battle. When I first met him in battle, he behaved a lot more like a certain infamous sir... Seemingly unsure of where to shoot even when the enemy is right in front of him. I would have thought a bot would at least aim at the enemy; have some kind of aim-lock or aim-bot it uses.

 

But the battle count certainly proves otherwise... Unless I found him on one of the off-battles where the actual owner played? I don't know really.

I could be looking at the wrong one (been a while since I've looked up his name), but it seems he may have been reset again.

 

My fail, I looked up the wrong name.

So wait. The ONLY punishment for botting is an account wipe.

 

What gets wiped? Everything that isn't a premium tank? They lose all tech tree tanks, credits and free xp? This is the first I have heard of this.

I'm assuming he does actually play some, based on that Ace O-Ni play.

I wouldn't be surprised if WG populated the servers with bots of their own making to supliment the queue.

They will never remove premium tanks, account time or gold because a player is botting.

The punishment for botting is an account wipe.

Which leaves the premium tanks/time and any gold the account might have.

As you can see it's a vicious cycle that continues until that player decides to stop.


 

 

I know what they do to punish them, I was merely commenting on the favoritism WG has towards bots instead of giving them bans.

WG has no incentive to remove botters.  They generally buy prem tanks or spend some money on the game.  They pad server numbers.  They are generally not trolling for team damage.   The ONLY incentive any mmo has to eliminate botters is the integrity and quality of the gameplay.  So, WG has no incentive.

WG knows player is primarily a "BOT"

Uses that player and drops him always on the handicapped team that for them it's "time to lose one".

Works to the rigging mechanism of rng, accuracy, MM etc...

I call them "Paid Shill Bots"

13 losses straight two nights ago with AFK or bot, sometimes more than 1 on my team 75 percent of the games. 13..pffft

People who believe the game is rigged are one of the reasons I take a week long hiatus now and then.  They're almost as annoying as bad map rotation and more annoying than bots.

I would love to get a hold of that account.   Just think of all the rigging theories that could be put to rest with that account

Bot accounts have to be paid for. More accounts=more cash. The bot issue will never be seriously dealt with , same will illegal mods. If you own the company you are not going to end 25%+ of your cash flow just to enforce a rule that really does nothing to increase your cash flow.
