Mockers Week #5 – Bots! |

killzone2_smallHey all. This week we have something new to play with, if things go to plan. Tomorrow morning the next Killzone patch will go online, and it includes bots! I thought we could try some human versus bots games to learn some teamwork.

So we have to do things a bit differently. One thing that won’t change is the times:

Tuesday @ 10pm EST
Wednesday @ 9pm EST
Thursday @ 10pm EST

The games I create always end up being laggy, so if someone else is online at around the times mentioned above, and there is no game, could you please create a game? Here’s what to remember:

  1. Please name it something like “Mockers VS Bots” or “Mockers + Friends”.
  2. Don’t forget to allow gamers of all levels to join, not just those of your rank.
  3. The password should be the same as always, which is mentioned in the Mockers Message of the Day within the game.
  4. Enable bots!
  5. Turn team balancing off.

Supposedly you can set up a humans vs bots game. I think this is done by turning team balancing off, and having all the human players choose a faction. (Is that right?) So everybody who joins the game should choose ISA, and hopefully the bots will all be Helghast. Anybody know how this actually works?

    Sounds a bit dull to me, bots. I haven’t even played the single player game yet ‘cos I prefer real players. Give it a try though.

    Elite bots are probably harder than human players. If you’re in their sight for more than like 2 seconds, consider yourself dead meat.


    I think it will be fun and good practice for other human competitors. I am usually always on waiting for someone to set up the Mockers match and I actually set one up on Thursday of last week so I can set it up if need be. For the players that were playing on the game I setup, was it lagging?

    I think that if you use bots it won’t count towards ranking up (maybe not an issue for you guys who are already fully ranked). I’ll plan to be there either way on Wed (although may be an hour late)

    Yeah the stats issue is kinda important to me. If you are playing with bots you aren’t earning any ribbons and I don’t have a lot of time to play as it stands right now. I’m not saying I wouldn’t but it is always nice seeing your xp increase and hoping for ribbons.


    I understand a lot of the members really want the ribbons and rank when playing. I guess we don’t have to necessarily have to play against bots. I mean if we can get enough human players (10 to 12 players) we can practice together that way. We will just have to make sure we set the teams appropriately and instead of just running around play against each other as practice. We should all have headsets so we can coordinate with each other. I think we can still reach our goal of teamwork but we will have another live person to play against. We then take the “machine” factor out of it and we can get the emotional responses that only a human player can create. If we took just a little time before everyone starts shooting we could work out a plan of action. I don’t know I’m just trying to please everyone here, but let me know what you guys think.


    That does kinda suck about not getting XP. But I’ll still play if we do bots. It will be nice to have a bit more teamwork.

    Just got back from vacation and ready to shake the rust off.

    Back when there were still bots available (I think in the first couple of days after the game came out), I created a game just for myself with only Elite bots to see how good they are.

    They are good.
