Noticed an increase in bot-like behavior

The last few days on Harbinger has been pretty bad for bot-like behavior. Been getting domination matches where fighters would do one of the following:

- beelines to a node and stop, do nothing even when another ship stops next to it and blows it up.
- beelines to a node, then just fly circles
- beelines to a node, attacks turrets by stopping at max range and opening fire.

The toons that do this are usually lowbie toons.

This is just not on, it ruins the fun for everyone...

If they're a bot, surely they're an easy target (not trying to avoid being hit like most players do).

Still better than most Imperial pilots.

Doesn't mean we want them in the game...

Submit a report ticket.

What is this 'report ticket' you speak of?

As for the bot-like behavior, it could be prototyping for flying bombers out to control points so they can do nothing but spam mines.

Thought it was BS till today. In a deathmatch against the other faction, there were two pub strike fighters that were odd. One would fly at the edge of the map, well away from battle and then hide next to an asteroid. The other went and just parked inside a mass of girders in a structure of some kind.

Both responded when ya took their shields out, but seemed oblivious otherwise. They weren't even targeting anyone.

First time I've seen that. Thanks for the points, I guess. lol

I almost reported a player for similar behavior: idly flying around with no apparent purpose. Called them out in ops chat too.

Afterward I received a tell explaining that he was a noob and trying to learn how to fly.

I offered to provide tips instead.
