    If you hit Tab it'll show you 'BOT' where their ping should be.

    So if they have a number for their ping/latency, then that means they're not a bot. I still have a sneaky suspicion that the server I'm on has bots because of how bad some of the players are, and I'm not even that good (I usually average a 1:1 kill/death ratio). There were a few occasions when I killed them and they didn't even notice me :lol:


    btw the server I'm talking about, has a capacity of around 60 players with about 45 playing when I was on it, thought they could only have a max of 32 players

    I think I've had a similar experience before. By the time you realise, you feel like an idiot.

    what, you found out in the end that you were playing against bots?

    If the BOTs are connected from another server they will have a ping. It's not impossible.

    The way to tell is if they have generic names like Jack, Jason etc.. :P

    Hit tab, usually says BOT under latency column.

    However, some servers try and disguise that. Although, it becomes obvious: they have weird names like "YankyDoodle" :rofl:.
