Howdy all!  I played WOWP when it first came out and gave up on it.  Now, I'm giving it another try and so far I'm liking it.  However, I do have some questions, like is their an easy way to tell the difference between BOTS and Humans in the midst of battle?

How can you see exactly what ground targets and air targets you destroyed?  I want to know did I just shoot down BOTS or did I shoot down some humans?

I've read through a lot of these threads and I didn't see any answers to these questions.

I have learned a lot reading through these threads, thanks to everyone that takes the time to answer and share their knowledge!

I use this mod, from Krautjaeger, for spotting bots, it puts an asterisk (*) in front of bot names in battle and in battle results.

To install, unzip the contents in to your World of Warplanes install folder's ...\res_mods\

Your battle results will not tell you whether you killed bots or humans nor what kinds of ground targets you destroyed, you should try and get a video capture of your battles and then you can check them later for those kinds of details.

Welcome Back!:great:

Agree with the mod posted above,and in most cases you can notice this like symbols added or use of upper and lower case fonts in the same Call sign.  Or just a K.I.S.S. way, kill or run from everything red  then knock out the white bots just kidding but it do work sometimes when used  every now and again

The BOT names are national. A German plane will have a German name. Japanese plane a Japanese name. If you look at the teams before/during the battle, you can easily pick out human players. Only took me 30-50 battles to be able to discern between a human and BOT. Most battles only seem to have 1-2 humans. But sometimes I see 6 per team.

The BOTs love to fight you head on and try to ram you. Rather annoying. When chasing BOTs, they seem to evade you exactly the same way every time.

The sure fire way to know who is a bot is before the match, bring up the list of all players. Right click on every players name. If a menu comes up so you can friend or report the person, then they are a human. If the menu doesn't appear, it's a bot. You can of course use the names to narrow down the options so you don't have to click every name. Bot names always start with a capital letter and never have more than one capital letter or non-letter characters in their name. And, of course, their names tend to reflect the nationality of the plane they're flying. There are a few players out there who purposely pick names that are similar to bot names and that's when right clicking the names comes in handy. I try to memorize how many humans are in a match on each side and what aircraft they're flying. This makes the humans easier to spot in battle.

Planes representing Totallyawesomenessland are flown by pilots with names that begin with the word "clod."
