I feel like I'm being teamed together with a bunch of stupid bots. My WR was about 50/50 and now all of a sudden I'm losing game after game. Is the game rigged so you can't move up past 50% unless you're on a team? I may not be the greatest player, but I feel I'm a little better than average. If this continues, It sucks the fun out of playing. I don't expect to win every game but...

My man. You need to know how to manipulate dem bots  They're just AI with very repetitive patterns. Learn to abuse that and profit! I'm sure someone will expand more in detail about this.

the best was to use them is find where the biggest pack is going and free them from the first base or at least that what i do when i am by my self in a match it seem to help

I don't think it would bother me so much if both teams were evenly matched with the same level of bots. However, when you're teamed with... let's just say, less experienced bots and your win rate drops over a thousand percent, I get a little peeved. It affects my record! The bots don't have a W/L record but we humans do.

Why are you even asking this pointless question..... The real question we should all be asking is; If a robot makes love to human is it considered bestiality from the robots point of view?

You have only played 178battles lol, Also bots are hella easy, I can always solo cap a zone, as long as it has enough bots to kill. What plane are you fighting? Are you effecting the game enough? You should have 3x the points of your bot team mates.

Also, if you live in a third world country like Russia your internets likely suck to bad to play games online.

 

 

FYI, I have over 65% win rate currently, I very very rarely play in team. I can confirm the game is not rigged in this way.

I'm not complaining about whether or not I can kill bots. My point is, even if I capture a sector by myself, when I go to another sector the bots lose the sector I was just in. The game seems to depend on whether the bots on my team are as good as the bots on the other team. I just don't want my W/L ratio dependent on bots. I really enjoy the game.  And I do believe I am affecting the game. I usually end up in first place with about an average of 16 kills per game.

At the tiers you're flying, the bots are quite easily dealt with. Once you hit tier 4, things will get even hairier, believe me. 

 

The best you can do is learn to predict how the bots will move and head them off: at tiers 1 and 2, its really as simply as flying into the path of an oncoming bot swarm and machine-gunning them down as they try to get past you.

 

Also, learn  your cap priorities: some caps are more valuable than others and are easier (or harder) to flip in the plane you're flying. Learning that will give you a much needed understanding of your target priorities as you move up the tiers. 

 

You'll see a lot of people complain that the game is rigged but in my experience, its usually just down to bad luck - an unholy combination of an unlucky map spawn, horrible bot spawn and a few choice bot fumbles (the GA crashing into a radio antenna in the middle of a Missile or Command Base cap is always golden) will leave you gnashing your teeth in rage but it really doesn't matter what your win rate is. Bot spawn is always luck of the draw and sometimes you plain can't win for losing.

 

The best pattern I can describe is one day all my bots in all my games couldn't pour pee out of a boot with instructions under the heel and the next day, they leave me in the dirt and win a string of games without my input at all. It happens. To be honest, they probably aren't any worse (and sometimes a lot better) than playing with other humans.

Oh, and just so you know I understand what you're talking about...

This was a crushing defeat; 800 to 400

At least bots are actually mindless; human beings have the capacity to actually be intelligent, yet are mostly completely moronic.

 

And the playerbase of WoWP is worse than most groups of humans.

Rule for WoWP, never trust your bots to do theur job. Also, there are some AI changes coming with the next patch, so we'll have to see if Potap can finally use his IL-2 to some effect


Edited by LMG, 18 August 2018 - 05:12 PM.

This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Thanks for the input guys. I guess I'm still a rookie at this. I thought more humans actually played the game.

I play WOWships and the bots are in a different category altogether.

Thanks again.

Most people play tiers 4 - 6. 1 to 2 tends to be the province of sealclubbers and stat padders. 3 too to be honest. 7 gets players sometimes. 8 is a hell where hope goes to die and 9 and 10 are mostly the same few players over n over n over
