How is the bot situation in this game now? A few months ago it was completely unplayable as every match contained more bots than humans. And not the good kind of bots that you expect in a multiplayer game to fill out servers. No, these are community-run, malicious bots that play as sniper and instantly kill every player who enters their line-of-sight

Quoting: torkel104How is the bot situation in this game now? A few months ago it was completely unplayable as every match contained more bots than humans. And not the good kind of bots that you expect in a multiplayer game to fill out servers. No, these are community-run, malicious bots that play as sniper and instantly kill every player who enters their line-of-sight

It's not bad at all. I regularly play casual payload and only see a single bot every few games. And when they join they get almost immediately kicked. If you play during odd times like weekday mornings (USA) you'll probably see a much worse bot problem. But even then, there's always community servers which bots don't seem to join at all.
