Bots in CG

AuthorBots in CG
I know it must be suggested for like gazillion times, but i'd like to point it out again

I DONT want to play against bots. Im interested in PvP, bots are not PvP. If i wanted to play against bots, i will play hunt or events.

There should be an option to check, "dont join if team not found" like currently there's option for dont join mixed if duel is not found.

Tbh, its very frustrating to join at the very 1st min, in the end player pool is 70-80, but you still end up playing against bots.
I dont play CG to farm points.. so if someone want to do that, I think having those checking system will resolve it, rather than completely removing bots.

But i do believe, players should have option for selection.

Problem is, similar to the idea about blacklisting.

Either it will lead to people not being able to play (which is the reason they brought bots in the first place) or it will lead to prioritising those who don't want bots to play against other players and so those that accept playing with bots will get it more often
Definitely +1

Bots have ruined CG and made it like the other 1000 generic point farming guilds. Many times I do not enlist because there are few players in the pool and the chances of facing bots is higher.

I suggested it before actually. You can see what the counter-arguments were:

Yeah this sucks.
I stopped playing CG outside of 18:00 - 24:00 since bots are high chance outside that range.
Least I would like them to add is, give preference to players who joins first.
It is random, i know because almost 90% of times im the first or within first 3 players to join CG.
And while i get bots, i have seen other players of same CL who got real matches. Today itself it has happened 3 times, and anyways i see it regularly.
So least I'd request to atleast remove this absurd randomness.

Random bad teammate is acceptable, but this randomness on getting match, its not acceptable.
However i believe that joining early means lesser chance of facing bots.. that im not denying.
But what i want is, instead of probability, make it sure event atleast.
So that atleast if im early bird, i get to play real pvp.
I believe group battles already exist for those who want to play only PvP. Bot fights are quick. Adding this option only complicates and disrupts the matchmaking mechanism even more than it is now.

Ain't no fun to play against bots in CG

How come every time people compare GB with CG!! You cant restrict AP, You cant ask them to use a potion, you know your enemy factions before the battle. So just stop asking people to join GB if they dont want bots

Why not do it otherway?! Just send the people who want to play against bots in PvP format to Sunny City. You can fight against bots of your levels there. And make CG exclusively PvP. Would you play those battles? :)
for Botmun:

If they gave cg points yeah! no waiting for each half hour and enlisting for 10 mins. Can give it an auto and get quick easy cg points. Would probably kill of the pvp side of cg for all but the hard core players xD
This is purely absurd..
now 3 times in a row, joined in 1st min, got bots.. everytime 50-60 players enlisted.

If this keeps happening, i dont think i will be able to retain my interest. And if CG is out of the picture, this game is over for me.

Lol
I dont even want to comment on this.
No GOOD player plays GB. If someone plays, he isnt good. ALL offense intended xD

Create a clan only GB
You can also go into Mixed CG.

you know your enemy factions before the battle
Create a random GB within the clan
You can also go into Mixed CG.

Just send the people who want to play against bots in PvP format to Sunny City
Get those battles start giving CG points and I can guarantee 90% of so called CG-only "PvP" players would never miss a chance to play those battles. CG Points provide nice stats :) I have seen clans start practice wars to get additional 3 CG points.

My concern here is that if people are given this option, it would lead to players who select this option fighting only real humans. However the other ones, who want to play a PvP with humans but are fine with a bot match also, face only bots as majority of people would be selecting non-bot battles.
With that exp and fsp ratio, i will still not play.
I will try obviously. But won't play continously. Lots of reason, min AP is unbalanced.. factions like DE and shooter elves own this, wizards are the worst, knights and FD with slow units, probably wont even get turn. This will turn into CE, DE CG farm fest.

Rather just bring old CG format.. kick me instead if team is not found. Or give me option to not participate.
for merlin36:
Exactly what I am trying to say. It doesn't makes sense to ask PvP aspirants to move to group battles to avoid bots. As there are no CG points in group battles on usual days.

Commander's Guild was meant for PvP. That's what 'About the Game' forum states as well. It doesn't makes sense to give away points from the guild to fight with bots.

I believe group battles already exist for those who want to play only PvP.
So asking players who wish PvP to move to group battle sounds absurd.

You cannot guarantee anything, nor does it mean a lot to have your guarantee. No offense but you do not know what sort of motivation individual players have for playing. I can tell you that some of the guys who started playing this game with me are pretty much over this continuous number grinding, and have only stuck with the game for battling other players. PvP requires you to have those stats so you are able to enjoy the battles; it's where the stats come to have a meaning yeah but part of it is also strategy. I like that CG gives some stats, it's a nice balancer to those PvE lovers who are endlessly able to grind AG and WG to get ahead, but using a PVP guild for the purpose of collecting stats instead of enjoying the experience just defies all logic.

I would prefer not to play CG at all, but it is somewhat of a necessity if I want crucial parameters that will help me do well in events. The main problem with CG is that battles are long and require focus, and I'm not willing to expend that kind of effort sometimes.

The side effect of being able to play more bots while earning CG points seems like a bonus to me.
Yeah I guess the gb argument has a lot more sense than otherwise when you are looking at your specific arguments.

Are you playing as you say to play against Real players not bots, or to get Cg points? If all you care about is testing yourself against other real players, that's what gb clans are for.

Thats my general problem with the game as it is recently, we used to play gbs all the time with our friends back in the early days, but now everyone cares so much about character development :(
