Do you have proof they’re a bot?

It’s what I noticing their pattern of playing. It doesn’t make sense that they would consistently start their turn within 30 seconds of their turn initiating. As an admin can you review the entire game log? I’m sure you’ll see a pattern in the time stamps for this player.

Not sure if I did this right, but here is one example. I attempted to upload a few screenshots of the log.

I think it’s more of a situation where he’ll use a program to take his turn at times. Reviewing this game log and others with him playing, I noticed that he’ll finish some turns in under 30 seconds. Those turns included deploying on several territories, assaulting multiple territories, and multiple reinforcements. It’s very suspicious.

Maybe he got Whambot to sit for him.

Taking turns right away isnt weird - but it gets increasingly quick as his games progress it appears. He starts out taking a few hours and then it becomes like 1 minute later. Will say, the speed with which turns are taken combined with very little time to map out the turn looks quite difficult to do.

If he saw red was playing, he could've just been waiting and thinking about his turns.
I've done that countless of time. Nothing weird with the speed here imho.

And what would be the purpose of having a bot taking his turns ? No-sense. If it was a freestyle game maybe, but not the case.

Some good points have been made. Maybe he was using a sitter bot at one point, but now isn’t because he has taken over 12 hours to take his current turn. It was just very fishy to have two turns in a row that initiated within 30 seconds and terminated within 60 seconds.

I agree with the comments for this report. For this Sequential game, it doesn't make sense that you would use a 'bot script' to make your turn as soon as it is available as it's not even in Freestyle setting.
