And so this thread slinks off to the bowels of necro land untouched by WG hands.  We are left but to speculate about the meaning of bot herding and collusion as it pertains to this game.  It's not the first time I've seen them ignore a question and I always wonder why?  Is it because they don't know themselves?  Is it so illogical that they don't want to try to justify it? 

 

Something as basic to the game as reports and violations should be crystal clear to everyone.  It's not.

i have often wondered just what an employee at weegee does his/her whole shift.

anyone want to speculate on what a typical day at the office is for a wargaming employee?

 

its hard for me to believe that they would just ignore this respectful request for clarifacation.


Chillax!! Have A Little Fun!! :great:

I think the term maybe for hackers who use the network for sinister means.

Ahhh... that is helpful. I think the immediate assumption is someone found a way to manipulate the in-game bots.

 

However, this explanation makes more sense. Many of us have seen users logging in on multiple accounts to manipulate the game outcome. In this respect, bot-herding means logging in on multiple machines (physical or virtual) simultaneously.

 

Thanks for the clarification.
