    hi

    I think i like to play 4man team in stroke play because its more of stories and stuff.

    More of drama. 

    But few players TC and TL spoils and quit after first hole.  People say there is no BOT in WGT

    But balmeiro and bubba74 behaves liek Bot and quit after first hole.

    I dont like block feature but if people quit ..we need a vote feature to block them. Anyone quit after 2nd hole need to be blocked if they have done it like 20 times.

    You need to remove the names of those two players or you may find you yourself gets blocked . It’s against rules to name and shame

      Yes . Multiplayer Stroke Play with 2 , 3 , or 4 players is some of the best times one can have in WGT . Very similar to Alt Shot . But with the intent to play well and try to show some skill and complete the round . As it is ranked and everything in it counts statistically .

      As opposed to alt Shot . Where the are no stats and nothing counts .

      In the Stroke Play . 4 player . It could be a lengthy round of golf . With all 4 taking shots on each hole . There also may be a different type of player . A little more serious . ( because the round counts ) ( and I said may be a different type of player ) Some play both Stroke and Alt . Some play exclusively one or the other .

      And as you mentioned . Some XLNT conversations to be had in them .

      It is not a good idea to ever mention any player in a negative manner . Ever . Mostly because it is not your job to judge . When you don't have all the facts . Most likely what you think happened . Wasn't even close to what really happened .

      The mods have the power to slap you on the wrists for the infraction . ( or more but not likely ) . So you should be very careful .

      If you can see the same player . One you do not know . Play and quit in more than 1 round . You will be very lucky .

      If a player exits or ends a round . You or anyone have no idea why or what happened to cause it . And even more likely is that you will never see that player again .

      Without proof or facts or more data . Like a confession . I do not suggest blocking any players .

      That is my opinion on that .

      I think what was said was . That BOTS are not and do not have the ability to play the game . There is just no way .

      We have seen some interesting BOTS in these forums . But that's as advanced as they get .

    An Internet bot, web robot, robot or simply bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks (scripts) over the Internet. Typically, bots perform tasks that are simple and repetitive, much faster than a person could. The most extensive use of bots is for web crawling, in which an automated script fetches, analyzes and files information from web servers. More than half of all web traffic is generated by bots.

    Some bots communicate with users of Internet-based services, via Instant Messaging (IM), Internet Relay Chat (IRC), or other web interfaces such as Facebook Bots and Twitter Bots. These chatbots may allow people to ask questions in plain English and then formulate a response. Such bots can often handle reporting weather, zip code information, sports scores, currency or other unit conversion, etc.[citation needed] Others are used for entertainment, such as SmarterChild on AOL Instant Messenger and MSN Messenger.

    Malicious bots

    One example of the malicious use of bots is the coordination and operation of an automated attack on networked computers, such as a denial-of-service attack by a botnet. Internet bots or web bots can also be used to commit click fraud and more recently have appeared around MMORPG games, as computer game bots. Nowadays this kind of bots are also being used in video games such as PUBG. PUBG mobile bots are also related to the family of malicious bots.[citation needed] Another category is represented by Spambots, internet bots that attempt to spam large amounts of content on the Internet, usually adding advertising links. More than 94.2% of websites have experienced a bot attack.[2]

    • There are malicious bots (and botnets) of the following types:
    1. Spambots that harvest email addresses from contact or guestbook pages
    2. Downloaded programs that suck bandwidth by downloading entire websites
    3. Website scrapers that grab the content of websites and re-use it without permission on automatically generated doorway pages
    4. Registration bots which sign up a specific email address to numerous services in order to have the confirmation messages flood the email inbox and distract from important messages indicating a security breach.[12]
    5. Viruses and worms
    6. DDoS attacks
    7. Botnets, zombie computers, etc.
    8. Spambots that try to redirect people onto a malicious website, sometimes found in comment sections or forums of various websites.
    9. Viewbots create fake views[13][14]
    • Bots are also used to buy up higher-demand seats for concerts, particularly by ticket brokers who resell the tickets.[15] These bots run through the purchase process of entertainment event-ticketing sites and obtain better seats by pulling as many seats back as it can.
    • Bots are often used in Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Games to farm for resources that would otherwise take significant time or effort to obtain; this is a concern for most online in-game economies.[citation needed]
    • Bots are also used to increase views for YouTube videos.
    • Bots are used to increase traffic counts on analytics reporting to extract money from advertisers. A study by Comscore found that over half of ads shown across thousands of campaigns between May 2012 and February 2013 were not served to human users.[16]
    • in 2012, journalist Percy von Lipinski reported that he discovered millions of bots or botted or pinged views at CNN iReport. CNN iReport quietly removed millions of views from the account of so-called superstar iReporter Chris Morrow.[17] It is not known if the ad revenue received by CNN from the fake views was ever returned to the advertisers.
    • Bots may be used on internet forums to automatically post inflammatory or nonsensical posts to disrupt the forum and anger users.

    The most widely used anti-bot technique is the use of CAPTCHA, which is a form of Turing test used to distinguish between a human user and a less-sophisticated AI-powered bot, by the use of graphically-encoded human-readable text. Examples of providers include Recaptcha, and commercial companies such as Minteye, Solve Media, and NuCaptcha. Captchas, however, are not foolproof in preventing bots, as they can often be circumvented by computer character recognition, security holes, and even by outsourcing captcha solving to cheap laborers.

     

      So No . No BOTS are playing the game . Not even close .
