A lot of people are quickly looking for a way to avoid servers running bots, though they serve as fillers until real players hop in
This guide is about bots, from how to avoid them to hosting a server (local or online) with them on, and even how you can help the community by learning and improving them through waypointing!
Very WIP guide!
A small notice to say this guide is a WIP!
It’ll be improved step by step!
What is a bot?
First things first!
A bot is a computer-controlled player, ran by the server
It will follow some instructions, by the bot mod and the waypointer who wrote precise, per-map instructions
You can easily check if a player is a bot with its ping: 0!

Finding bot-less servers
(I have to check again but i believe ET: Legacy has a filter for this)
As said in the introduction, have in mind some servers only have bots during low-activity hours, so don’t discriminate them too fast!
The only vanilla way is to use online trackers such as SplatterLadder or TrackBase to filter-out bot servers

https://et.trackbase.net/serverlist/ – [trackbase.net]
Hosting a game with bots
You want to have some offline action, or play a LAN with friends but you’re not enough? :/
Then just add bots to your game!

As of now this section will just supply links, will be improved!
