Tier X game, half humans-half bots all in Tier X planes.

 

I'm flying IL-40P, first life of that match. Attacking the airport in the middle. More than half HP gone. Someone is attacking me hard from behind, I'm almost dead but I want to destroy the softened control tower with my last bomb while I still have 30-40 HP left.

 

Now this all happens in one second:

 

I've dropped the bomb, got killed, my bomb destroys the control tower... and I've lost all control to select my spawn point or to control my aircraft! I've become a bot. Could only watch my plane respawning at a starting point, flying to a stupid direction, firing rockets that miss, shooting at a fighter - behaving like a simple bot plane. It lasted during that life. When "me" (my bot controlled plane) got killed I could again choose a spawn point and again take control of my plane.

 

WTF? Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Yes, I mentioned the same in a bug topic.

Some said when got killed and you sit behind an other plane just press enter and you get back your own. It works so far.

Just another fine bug.

LOL. You should change your in game name to zen_monk_bot 

 

It happened to me maybe once to start to having 3rd men perspective. Same thing happened to phontomen in one of his youtube videos. 

 

I mean ti would be nice if your plane became bot if your game crushes or in similar occurrence.

Yes, I remember the first time that happened to me too. My best was becoming an AA turret though!

First step to replace all human players by bots, so not pay to win — just pay to watch :trollface::teethhappy:

How does one know if a player is human or a cleverly coded bot to begin with?

Maybe we're all bots and what we consider to be the bots are actually human players that are all horrible at the game?

I‘m a bot coded to not only fly virtual planes now and then, but to post in this forum occasionally. As my programmer was an apprentice from germany, you may notice strange speech and grammar failure sometimes.

I think, therefore I am....just another taxable drone.
