We need more bots! How can I help?

Postby BanMeILeft » Thu Nov 26, 2009 11:15 am

WW games have been filling very, very fast and it is quickly growing in popularity. Right now the average wait to find a WW game in the game list is 3 or 4 minutes. This is especially true during the day, but even at night it fills up fast due to its popularity on other realms.

There is individual hosting, but that only covers one realm, which severely limits things- if you host at 2 am on US East, you won't get even three people, but if you join a bot game, it fills up in under a minute. We need more bots!

What can I do to help out?

I hate how you can't really host games without a bot these days. ;(

I can host, but it is much harder to get enough people for a game without a bot which can host on all 4 realms at once. =(

My bot is going to be severely limited from now on, since it is the indirect cause of my computer dying.

The problem is while my bot is running my PC won't shut off, and my parents freak out and pull the power cord, which fries the hard drive and gives me boot up problems.

So unless I can fix that, I won't be able to autohost on my bot very much at all.
