BGs are prone to botting as well. All sorts of things to make it easier to perform at high levels. It’s not just a PvE thing. Because there ARE people who will do anything to place high in the rankings for the season.
Yeah for sure! I remember back in WoD above 2200 there was a lot of people kick botting, especially warlocks. I was more so asking for specific examples I could look out for. The more you know the eaiser it is to spot and deal with it!
So what happens in some teams we’ve gone up against will use a CC Bot that will CC you right at certain times just before you’re about to finish them off, which allows defenses and or heals to save the player. Myself, partner and those in the guild have noticed this happening more and more. (Yes there are good players out there that do get them off, I won’t discredit those folks)
I don’t wanna come off as rude or anything I’m just playing devil’s advocate!
1700 is a very low rating and I’ve been playing all season and haven’t noticed any sort of CC bot. Teams using CC to stop a kill is very common place even at lower ratings.
I’m not saying you’re not playing against some bots but it’s just hard to tell. I remember when WoD was out the easiest way to tell if you were playing against a kick botter was to use an aura mastery and cast a heal. The bot would alway kick the first 0.01 seconds of the cast regardless if aura was up or not. Dead give away.
Is there anything like this going on or is it just teams using CC when their teammates are low?
