Today I waited 1:35 for the battle to start and expected the opposition team to be populated with bots only. To my surprise there appeared to be a human on the other team called "Boris", the rest all had an asterisk in front of the name since I use the "Who's the AI bots" mod: http://forum.worldof...os-the-ai-bots/

 

During gameplay, I noticed Boris flew much like a very aggressive bot with a penchant for ramming and an unnatural physical attraction to my aircraft. After the game I tried to look at his stats or send a message but these functions were not available, same as the bots. Out of curiosity, I looked Boris up in the Hall of Fame. He had no aircraft and had flown no battles, not even in version 1.9 of the game.

 

Since Boris is a very Russian name, I can only assume that this is in fact a bot made to appear like a human player. Has anyone else noticed anything similar, perhaps with a different handle?

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Its news to me. But ill keep an eye out.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is very hit or miss. Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

" Since Boris is a very Russian name, I can only assume that this is in fact a bot made to appear like a human player "

There was a Bot the other day flying in a P-38, that zeroed in on my bomber 3 times in a row.

 Every time that I respawned,:hiding: he was waiting to attack. :playing:

All 3 times ( while heading to the plant ) he alone shot me out of the sky.

Was surprise to see that he only had min. damage after shooting me down for the 3 time.:amazed:

It wasn't boris nor was he on top of the chart, (somewhere in middle ) but it did seem he was set up on attacking bombers only.

But do be careful,how you word that WoWP  is putting out fake players,:P they have handed out warning and suspensions on accounts for less.:ohmy:

I worry most about the 'unnatural physical attraction' part.

 Since Boris is a very Russian name

 Its also the name of the very British [edited]who just suspended UK Parliament to ram through Brexit.

Perhaps having a boorish brutal ramming bot with the name is WG way of commenting on that ?
C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

It was probably a bot that for some reason did not register on the Who's the AI Bot? mod.  I think I have seen this before, but cannot verify it, just when I read the OP's post, it was not surprising.

I stick with the old-fashioned surefire way of right-clicking everyone on the roster...



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Ok, you guys are getting weird. 

 

Ewwwww Ewwwww Ewwwwwwwww!! :ohmy:

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

Yes, I wanted to use words to that effect but didn't want it edited.

 

Anyway, I saw another bot last night that did not register as a bot, this time by the name of "Henryk".

An interesting thing I noticed is that Boris was flying an Avia BK-534 and Henryk was flying a PZL-P-38 Wilk, both Euro Premium Aircraft.

The profiles are searchable in the database with no battles and no aircraft, both created in 2011.

The question is then, why don't they register as bots when it seems clear that they are?

Maybe Boris and Henryk are secret Press accounts?

That is a good question.  Maybe they are "gifted" bots.
