We had a problem with “Bots,” but as the WoWP population is slight, we have a bigger issue now.

What do bots do?

  1. They fodder the games for us. (I’m not unhappy about this) with the flips-side being that they feed the opponent team with intention, perhaps.
  2. They may focus-fire (the HHJ take).
  3. Spin around a worthless objective/taken objective.
  4. Suicide into terrain.

Now we have a worse ‘Bot’ situation:

The players, best and worst, direct the “Bots.”  Is this a case of better ‘Bot distributors’ winning more often?

I’ve read that the “Bot” patch was to mitigate opponent flights.   Has it?  It seems that the “Bot” patch is trying to replace “Flighting” with “RNG ‘flighting.’”

As a general non-flighter, I feel that I’m over-“Botted,” often.  That written, perhaps exploiting this new patch is the way to go if only I could quickly.

I found that there is not difference in game play after I stopped trying to use all the function keys.

I just fly normally and win, lose or draw normally.

There really has been no difference.

Yup,and when I did call for help no one came anyways.

Researched the bf109z and flew it stock with no bot help and did very well in it and even won a couple matches.

Only think not stock is the cannons. Pretty sure I one shotted a few guys tonight with it.

I quit foolin' with it when I noticed my bot 'support' liked to die in the cap zone.

it's very early in the bot flighting era        I'll bet that we'll see improvements

What I found wss it dosnt have as large of an impact on the game as I originally believed.  The 2 commands i mainly use now is f4 to cover my flight member if im in a flight,  and the f7 clear my tail.

I use "Clear my tail" and "Affirmative" mapped to my joystick. The clear my tail request has actually been successful most of the time. It, to my amazement, has produced a cleared tail. :)

I do the support request.. the only thing that sucks is when I'm in my EF 131 and something like a Yak-30 is what responds.... IT CANNOT POSSIBLY KEEP UP! YOU ARE USELESS YOU POTATO! WHY DID YOU FOLLOW ME! *coughs* Ahem.... I guess my point is they might need to work slightly on which bot responds if available. I'd rather have one slightly further away that can get to my plane -eventually- at least.
