Now you guys seriously need to crack down on the bots and afk'ers. Been playing to get my 20k today... There's at the very least one in every single game, usually multiples.

You guys have let this get seriously out of control. You guys need to get tough. Banning them doesn't do any good. They just start another account, I get it. You need to hit them where it hurts. Negative XP, negative credits. Keep them bankrupt for as long as they bot.

Bots can be addressed (for the most part), but real life happens so AFK players will always exist from time to time. 

 

And most players you think are bots are simply bad players, not actually bots. What happens when the system you outline affects you? Say you get killed early on and it somehow meets the requirements? What requirements would detect a bot? 

 

Negative exp is bad, 0 exp is at least alright/reasonable as false positives will exist.

Nice, so when my game crashes at the start up screen every few dozen games since their last update I get punished for it? (Never once had a game crash prior to last update)

How about reports from players in combination with statistics of the player in the match? 14 people report someone who has 0 shots fired and 0.00 km traveled they get the full repair cost of their vehicle on top of making 0 xp and 0 credits income.

I thought something like this was already implemented? At least if they made it a repetitive issue punishment that went into the negative for them it would be self policing. Only so many AFKs until your bankrupt and can't enter a game with an unrepaired tank.

So what...i went afk. Pizza man at the door or have to poop. Loose power. Life happens. The real issue is the terrible connection with the game lately

This is why I laugh when people want to add PvE. We already have semi-advanced AI why would you want more?

I don't follow your point. Sure, life happens, what does that have to do with not rewarding people for going AFK? Why would it be a big deal to give players who are AFK 0 xp & credits for a battle?

People make out bots to be as big a deal as all chat position revealing.  Saying you see 1 or more per game is ridiculous.  Knock it off already.

If you go from being comfortable enough to hit the battle button and make a 7 minute commitment to rushing off to the bathroom, then you need to see a doctor.

If the 6 heavies verses 1 heavy or the 10 tds verses 8 mediums..... goes away then I am happy. 

Bots well some people disconnect and some bots are just bad players.... high ping etc.  

 

Yes some are bot programs but I have a feeling there are more system lag players and bad players that are just quite in match that account for a lot of the bots,

First, you'll never get all 14 players to report.  But that still doesn't address the real reason why most people go AFK.  Their client crashed, their PC crashed, their ISP crashed, or a host of other issues.  I had a game hang due to huge lag spikes because my girlfriend started streaming a movie in the next room.  You want to penalize me because she was watching anime and had no idea she was killing my client?

Just breathe, it's a game, and it's the internet.  There are a million ways to lag yourself out.  AFK happens.

As for Bots, I think they are wayyyyyyyyy less frequent than anyone thinks.  I can't think of a single good reason why I'd even want to put a bot in games.  They don't make money, they don't earn experience (at least not more than a pittance) and they're certainly not something you can sell....

 

I think the people who complain about Bots and AFK's are the same people who whine about bad MM and think WG is out to get them.....

​Three games today. 

Two afkers.  67% of games.  0.067% of players. 

I liked how the numbers worked out with that.
