On Bunker #2 server admins (lvl 12+?) can change amount of bots for one map but bots are going to default when the map is over.

For example if I set maxbots to 10 (5v5 teams), they reset to 6 (3v3 teams) when map changes. I just want to see your opinion about the best amount of bots with this poll. This poll does NOT have any effect for B2 settings. However if this poll gives something other result than 3v3 teams, I hope B2 high admins, who can change B2 settings permanently, will do something (except if the result is no bots OR bigger than bigger 5v5 teams (we got already B10 which has lots of bots)).

I think how it is now ( 6 bots max ) Is fine it gets annoying when theres too many bots cause when your fighting vs real players the bots just get in the way with blocking and shootin me in the back :)

I go for 6 bots (3vs3) if people want a botwar then can give high admin that.
If people will more bots then check b10 (10vs10). :icon_wink: :icon_wink:

I miss those all hours I spent in B5 killing bots which has been one of my favorite server in Bunker. :resent:

Personally I hate playing ET on servers with less smaller than 4v4 teams.. It just feels so empty. :fish:

I would have to say that 6 bots (3 vs 3) is fine.
However, changing it to 4 bots (2 vs 2) would be better because if people start to join in, the teams will be more fair comparing tot 6 bots.
When bots are limited to 4, teams will always be fair: the worst situation is 2 humans vs. 1 human + bot
When bots are limited to 6, teams will be most likely unfair: the worst situation is 3 humans vs. 1 human + 2 bots
We all know that bots are useless most of the time :happy:

However in both situations, teams will end up unbalanced eventually
When 4 bots: 3 humans vs. 1 human
When 6 bots: 4 humans vs. 1 human + bot
This is possible because when a human joins a team, a bot dissapears.
I'm not sure if this has been prevented but I know this was the case in the past :blink:


Anywho, I voted 6 bots because when the time arrives for possible screw-up in teams (explained above) the server is most likely filled with players that care for even teams ( there is also a higher chance for even teams).
Including more bots is not recommended.
B2 is not a bot server but only uses bots to keep players busy when server slowly fills up ;)

My only issue with bots is that they eliminate certain tactics of the game. You have to be relentless, because you might be up against a bot that's going to "lock on" to you in 2 seconds. I'd rather play to the level of the competition when in a small game, and use more interesting tactics that might only work on a human.

my issue is that everyone stops to play as a team or for object and starts to spam artys and stuff. also bots are only to low (only dangerous in large numbers) or to strong.. ( not on b2 so far).

Just a FYI bots seem to be off on b2 at the moment (we had 10/team then next map they reverted to 6 as normal, then next map no bots)

The bots are very unrealistic.

Way to accurate, unaware till you shoot at them then you're dead, just impossible to play against. Less may be the answer... ?
You don't really have a chance with them they do a 360 then hit you with a head shot before you know whats going on.
The bots using mortar are pretty bad too, dropping mortar on or at the door of spawn. Always calling for ammo. please shut them up. :D
Not to mention the teambleeding, I'm in a gunfight trying to stay undercover and my team-bots come up behind me and shoot me?? lol
I was messing around with botdiff but I didn't notice any difference? Seams like they start out very weak/camp unaware then they turn into superbots!
Very unrealistic to play against so I vote less for sure or at least till there is a better bot available.

Great feedback :)
Will try to adjust them. Thought about disabling friendlyfire when bots are on.. When the bots are aiming like bots do - they do not teambleed - but when you try to make them more human .. there aim is sometimes completely off...

Also the plan is to have bot counts adjusted per map..

I can't remember the name of the map but the bots don't work on at least two maps.
They spawn in drop ammo and health paks then just sit there, I'll work on getting the map names for you.
