    Hoping we can get a Humans vs Bot mode in the future, that would be awesome

    it was just for selflearning AI to learn. just in this case the AI authors were using bf1 as the test bed

    You wouldn't need a CTE with thousands of "agents" playing millions of hours BEFORE release - no bugs, no glitches all worked out by AI before release.
    Also those empty servers can no longer be empty, you may initially be the only human playing against bots and as more players join they take the bots slot ...

    They must at some point cap the skill level - I am not going up against perfect aim, perfect timing BF1 death bots thats certain ...

    If AI bots are added to the main game I'm expecting hackers will eventually find a way to trick FairFight into thinking the player is an AI bot. Then future updates to FairFight results in bans on actual AI bots. Thus if the AI bots go rogue, the hackers will be the first to perish in the uprising.

    That's pretty unlikely actually, AI bots are never introduced into live multiplayer environments simply due to how unreliable they are.

    If anything, Adding bots to a game would usually involve the creation of an "offline" mode ( such as with SWBF 2's "Arcade" mode )

    You'd think they're secretly testing them in online games now, with how terrible man games turn out to be.

    BF1 is dying=C Horribly needed AI!
    Even if it will be offline and as DLC I can buy it! DICE, just add this function!

    You're over 1.25 years late to this thread.

    Nope, because "1.25 years later" was a "BF fans" who hated this idea. They said: "We don't need it", "PvE for noobz", "will be more cheaters", "it's online game! Play in campaign!" and etc. Right now they bought BV5, but people in BF1 now have 5-10 half\full servers, which mostly conquest with standard and tsar maps, because of them.
    So this IS the time, when DICE must add AI in the game. It's even OK if it will be a new DLC for real money, I already do not care, because I want to play in other maps!

    PS: And stop saying what we do not need it again! I am so tired of people who do not want support good ideas. Why not just support it to make BF games better?
