My opinion is no. Playing with bots creates a whole different game play dynamic.
This afternoon (8-7-12) I was playing on B2 and as usual, there were a lot of bots and more real people were on offense. The number of peeps did change throughout the day. I've been on that server when all of the real players will either go offense or defense and play against the bots... or even have a bot war. My personal view is to go offense because it's harder to win against a bunch of bots who are defending.
During play, |>B<|Defender wanted to even up the sides with real people. The offense was "stacked" and he mentioned it was unfair for the defense. I find it almost impossible to win against bots and humans (even numbers) if you're on the offense. The defense is very tough. It's hard enough winning with all people on the offense. My suggestion to him was to join the offense and go against the bots... or to eliminate the bots and then even up the teams. At some point... the bots were sent home... and the teams were evened up.
Defender has his own point of view on this and I invite him and everyone else to jump in and give us your thoughts.
