For the past two days that is all that it has been is huge swarms of 41-45% turbo loss inducing bots in this mode and would like a detailed explanation as to exactly why there has to be so many of these bots on.

Because the player base has collapsed?

Recon mode is painfully disgusting to play.  My guess is that WG has to put them in to make matches.  Queues are poop....rewards suck, no one knows their thumb from their rectum, wholly junk experience.  They can put the maps in or not, I'm not going to suffer through 150 matches to give you feedback in that garbage mode.  To those that love it, congorats.

Those bots need to learn the new maps too. Otherwise, they'll be at an even more disadvantage when the new maps get released.

You need 50 matches in 6 days so there's that.

Pretty much lol, amazing to think that half of this "player base" doesn't know which end of the tank to shoot from never mind failing up to the tiers they are now. I really do miss the game play that was the norm a couple of years ago.

A better question to ask is why would you play this game seriously at this point in its life on the NA server?

You have less than 800 battles in 6 years you don't have a clue about the crap you are spewing.

If you don't like playing with/against the games majority player base then quit.

Battle count isn’t a skill metric unfortunately

I agree!

 

Each iteration has three new, large maps, each one with a variety of play options. Recon maps are obviously fresher and more interesting than a large majority of the current inventory of maps that we collectively complain about and criticize.

 

Not to mention pretty neat graphics and get to earn freebie stuff and BP points, too.

Well, other than what should be expected from players paying on new maps I've noticed no difference at all. If anything it's been surprisingly good compared to randoms. You do realize a lot of these 'bots' may be exploring the new maps looking for strong spots only to find out the spot they went to isn't one of them?

^^This was the whole point of the mode wasn't it?

Hey if it ruffles your banana holder don't play it. There are no rules in WoT that anyone has to play at whatever standard you think they should. If its real AI players WG put in that's another issue.
