again not saying you are lying but i'd hope if you are seeing a mass of bots all over the zone you are doing more than just /report.. i'd be getting video and posting it to show on official forums.. I'm in queensdale now on Rall yet ot run into a bot this is third time doing this zone since launch

I'm also on Rall and I've been helping my friend level, he's level 32 or so now, and just last night we were in the Fields of Ruin (I believe) where the skritt cave is there was a whole ton of Rangers with bears all spread out in little groups.    And that's where I logged for the night,...just checked right now, they're still all there.   Teleporting around and having a good old merry time.  

I've also seen a ton in all the Orr zones.  I've seen plenty scattered around in the low level zones, nowhere near the amount of players, but lately when I am messing around in the lower zones it does seem like there are a lot just because I'm more likley to see (or maybe just remember) a "group of bots" than I am a "group of players" somewhere.

Just took this a moment ago on Tarnished Coast.  3 bots (overlapping each other).

There are so many bots in the beginning human area on Yak's Bend.  It's really discouraging when most people I ran into were exactly that, teleporting about with names like "xytsnsh.d."  I've been playing this game since launch and it's become quite disheartening.

For every 1 real player I ran into last night, I encountered 3-5 bots.  So not sure what this server is for other than them.

 

^ Load o crock.

 

Next to that i visited all those places where people claimed that there were 20 bots 24/7 teleporting and with names like that etc  , i did not find a thing myself. I did see people doing the even but nothing out of the ordinary since when they finished it they moved on , they also had regular names and didnt teleport. I mentioned this on the gw2 forums and aparently i was there on the wrong time. I dunno how i could be there on the wrong time tho considering "24/7" and all.

 

But lets asume there are 20 bots on these popular bot events. that makes about 2 groups per map for these tops no lets make them 3 per map then, how would those possibly be reposponsible for giving the servers their "high" or "full" status anyway,

 

they couldn't.

This was just a few minutes ago, Gendarran Fields on Piken Square. The whole zone is sprinkled with them. Running around I had reported several and then that train hit me...

And I posted in https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/game/gw2/On-Botting-and-What-We-re-Doing-About-It

 

6 bots. What happened to 1 in 3 for every human player or groups of 20 spread out all over the game and responsible for the high population?  Talking like that is as bad as the people denying that there are no bots at all and this ia the best you can come up with after your claim of 1 in 3 is human and the rest bots, six ...really ?.

 

Seriously , i can take a pic of 6 bots in any popular mmo right now so what was all the drama about then?.

I saw a few in Orr areas just after release, but didn't see a single one lately. As I said in a previous post, bots don't get very old, they barely get past level 30-40ish.

I'm strictly anti-bot, and I'm reporting them all when I see them, and yeah, the game as a problem with them (just like most if not all MMORPGs which have some success), but we must not exagerate either.

Just look the post histories, man... some people are simply more busy bashing games, often with imaginary over-exagerated problems, instead of playing a game they would enjoy.

Realy ? Bots in a mmo ? w...t...h....
ive never seen one of those bots in a mmo....
what is this phenomenon ?


Seriously any mmo has bots look at WoW battlegrounds you can count each game between 1 or 10 bots per side.
Aion has Blots of bots
any mmo has bots...

great thing in GW2 is you can double team with bots and make your kills easier if you farm stuff.
I do it all the time so whats the real problem ?

Its not like they kill steal mobs and you cant loot lolz -_-


And MoP is out servers in GW2 are still FULL / High.
Whats this obsession for GW2 ?

Game is rocking hardcore and nearing 3 million sales :)

Keep crying tough its hilarious to see these bashers and haters :D

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Aparently according to him 2 pictures of the same 6 bots is proof that the servers are overun with bots and that there is no real population.

 

A ridiculous stretch of the imagination but hey.

I definately agree, with all of that.  As I said I think it's just people remembering seeing that group of bots more than anything else.  First time I did the Tequatl (spelling...) there was a huge group of bots back by the little building where risen krait I believe would keep popping up for that event.   So much teleporting going on around me I thought it was lag at first and everyone was rubberbanding.   

But, yeah, as I said nowhere near the amount of bots as can be led to believe.   But when you stumble across groups of them in a zone when you haven't came across many groups of players in a while it can seem like they're out of control.

You are denying there are bots?  Granted, I've only seen that group of 3 this morning.  I think Tarnished Coast has less of them.

But sticking your head in the ground, calling anyone a "troll" who points out problems with your game, thus ignoring the problems, is a horrible way to go about.

big difference between saying bots are around and saying game is overrun by bots and that is what the majority of the population is.. or saying every other person you see is a bot

I'm not one of those people...  I'm also on the game right now.  There are bots, groups of them, that will be in spots for days on end, I have seen that.  It is nowhere near the size that it is made out to be though.   But I've seen a decent amount of "bot groups" since I've been playing at a fair share of events.   To be fair to, I've just recently switched over to Rall with friends and have not seen as many.   But as I posted above, and showed Aerowyn there was a group in the skritt caves last night and still there this morning.  

But, report and carry on.

There is about 2 or 3 events that take place there, but one requires turning in the ebon vanguard helmets and I don't think they do that...   

Not really sure what they're farming there for really...

Look at this one, haha, the trolls and haters are getting really desperate. 

The only desperate one is OP since  there is no new server. As many have already said Anet won't add just one server due to W v W without adding two more servers. 

Op trolled us all. Good job!

Someone above was accusing me of an agenda.  Not sure who it was.

Anyways, Yak's Bend last evening was absolutely infested in the Human starting area.  Tarnished Coast seems much better, but seeing bots in any game is very discouraging.  It may have seemed like an exxageration on my part, but it was really bad over at Yak's last night.

 

Edit: and, by the way, I report every one I see.  So I am doing my part.

probably just gold farmers and they picked that area because its sort of secluded away and spawn rate seems pretty fast.. just a guess
