Hi all,

i always wondered if the bots have a respawn delay.

If i get shot, the respawn for me as a human player depends on if it is the first time during battle and if my team holds an airfield.

Getting shot for the first time in battle and my team holds an airfield, brings me back in a few seconds. Getting shot for the 2nd time there is a delay for about 20 seconds if i remember right, and the longest delay i experienced is around 45 seconds after the 3rd shot. 

Do Bots have the same delay?

As i have the impression they respawn faster... but thats maybe just me? How do you experience this? 

Or is there even an official feedback from eekeeboo?

 

Cheers and good hunt, 0berhessen

They do seem to respawn quicker but I suspect it's down to perception ie when you wait to respawn it feels like times dragging because you're sat doing nothing essentially, whereas before you see the bot you shot down reappear your time is filled with engaging other targets and appears to go quicker.

No, they havent same delay, they respawn below 10 sec. Just kill a bot and if you are lucky to be near respawn, you see him again after a few seconds. Today in a game i was stalked by a flight. They killed me 5 times. My last delay was 46 sec. I kill GA bots several times in a battle, they are back within 10 sec. Cheef hasnt any idea of such circumstances. He hasnt the time to watch. Only GA-pilots have time to watch other planes, cause of bomb delay.

Contrary to my first impression i second Mördergrube.

During the Attrition Contest last weekend i was able to check and i found out that Bots have an immediate respawn.

Absolutely no delay.

I was in a one against one with another human player and all i did was shooting down the two Bot Bombers that kept trying to conquer the rocket base which i owned. Fortunately my opponent wasn´t clever enough to conquer the other areas. So i was able to win this just by shooting down those ever again approaching bombers.

The only delay the bots had was the time they needed to fly from their spawn point over to the rocket base.

How do I recognize the bots

If your right click on each name in battle (press tab) any thing that comes up with an option is a player, if there is no option then that is a bot. 

 

Generally speaking bot names will have no numbers, have generic national names and always start with a capital letter. You'll begin to recognise them after a while.

I've noticed that there is barely any delay when enemy bots spawn from original spawn point. Not sure if there is a delay if the spawn from an airfield (or if they even do spawn from airfields)

 

I was shooting down the same bot over and over thinking that I would be removing it for longer and longer periods but it just kept coming back.

 

Bot AI also has some very strange behavior. Some of the AI is clearly utterly useless and can't even keep the aiming reticule on a target flying straight and level whereas very few other AI is very very good. 

 

ADA AI is deadly relative to player bot AI.

I think ADA also have big variety in performance from time to time just like the rest of bots.

In general I consider it a turkey shoot even alone against 6 ADA, but on some occasions its not. (In these, usually HF snipe me from insane angles and distance)

It is most evident with bot GA and bombers as they seem to attack the same target over and over ... I frequently shoot down the same GA/bomber several times ; you kill him over a base, fly off to another field and run into the same bot again on his way to his designated target. And it doesn't look like they have to wait almost a minute.
