Well,I personally think is a great idea from brink to include AI bots in it.It will help kill boredom whenever they is less ppl in the game and also help equalise the unfairness in team balance from outnumber.Whenever a player come in,he will auto replace the AI bot so this idea is great while not feeling boring whenever u get into a server where there is no ppl or less ppl in the server.

If it's anything like ETQW, the servers with bots will not be ranked servers (Splash Damage also did ETQW) But, I don't think you will have a problem finding servers with players on them, unless the game is a complete dud.

Well ranked servers is removed in Brink, ranked servers totally destroyed custom content for etqw.

As for bots, I bet most servers would turn this option off I guess.

the game is 6v6..your telling me you can't fill that up? and 6v6 is boring enough...the maps are probably extremely small or either too big

It's 8on8, not 6on6.

Exactly. Where are people getting this 6vs6 idea?

I dunno. For a launch day party, with SD "in 'da house" we are hosting a huge server, maybe 20v20 or more. I'll spill more info later. It's gonna be a huge party!!!!!! Yeah, we do know a few SD guys. This is gonna be great.

Sorry, to correct. It's only 8v8 per server, BUT, we may have 3 or 4 servers for this party!

Balance in numbers sounds well and good, but a team of 8 humans vs 1 human and 7 AI controlled bots isn't very balanced at all.

All it means to me is that if my team has a bot for a medic, I might as well not bother waiting to be resurrected because, chances are, the AI will be about as intelligence as a box of rocks.

Case and point: Left 4 Dead.
