[Suggestion] Add Bots to PlanetSide 2

    Add fully functional bots to PlanetSide 2 like Back 4 Blood.
    Make them able to do anything a player can do.
    Also, have this feature for PlanetSide 3 as well.

    Make them fully populate the game.
    Make them leave the game to make room for players joining.
    Have them rejoin when players leave to keep the game fully populated.

    Give them the highest battle rank.
    Have all their equipment at max rank.

    Hire / Have some really good A.I. Designers / Programmers do this.
    So it can be done in 1 Year max.
    Like the new Oshur continent.

    Would increase the lifespan of the game and replayability of the game.
    Since it wouldnt be dependent on players to keep the game populated.
    The Bots would handle that perfectly.

    Thank you.

    Good Game.

    Bots would be a powerful alternative to squad leaders and gunners.

    ...PS2 is not a PVE game...unless you're driving a tank on Hossin.

    Do not turn Planetside into a mobile game. It is also bold of you to assume that they're even continuing with Planetside 3 route, because what they envisioned is an absolute impossibility for how small the Planetside team is.

    No thanks.

    The game engine has enough to deal with without having to control and calculate AI ability and reactions.

    This would literally make me end my membership immediately. I play this game so I can play with other people.

    Could probably design em to follow other players around and act as extra small arms firepower/meatshields maybe even man unmanned turrets. All at the behest of player command. Of course the big issue here is going to be pathing.

    For wildlife it would be nice. Seeing the occasional bird or lizard fly/run away would make the world feel much grander.

    Instead of bots, I'd rather have some major updates. The amount of effort and time to create them with halfway realistic behavior would be insanse. They put additional load on the hardware, have to be maintained and get updated with every major patch. On top of that they'll probably bug out half the time, because of spaghetti overdose.
