Clan advertising in rented server

Hello,

Our clan rents a BF1 server and we would like some bot to tell people it's ours and to visit our website.
Since the last update it's possible to spectate a game and to chat with the players so:

Is it allowed to write a bot that will join the server when a player joins the server and whom's only function will be:
- Move once every 4 mins to avoid being idle
- Say some lines like 'This is a ****** server - check our website at ******'



kthnx

    lol... you are the type of person that has ruined having servers we can rent. Asking to have a bot in a server and specifics on how to keep the bot in the server is wrong. I believe it also against the EULA to have macros.

    I have run some of the top BF3/BF4 servers in the world and never had to have a "bot" advertise my clan so people join it.

    Unfortunately in BF1 there's no other way.

    I'm aware of the ban on macro's.
    But since the bot would be in spectator mode it can't really do harm..

    Wait... I have not played in spectator mode, but you can chat while your in there? That leaves things open for people to be trolls and let other people know where people are at on the map. I can see a few of these new clans abusing that having one member in spectator and calling everything out on TS / vent / discord to their team mates.

    Well to clarify, chatting in-game is possible in BF4 and BFH too from spectator. That's why we made spectator whitelisted in BF4 to keep it for admins only to track possible cheaters etc.

    There is a 10-20 second delay when watching in spectator. The delay is to not allow exactly what you typed above.

    Depends on what will be allowed and what we want...
    I think I'll write something in C(#/++) and if needed a PHP backend to remotely adjust the functionality of the bot.

    Nothing too complicated tho.

    Pretty sure you need to have an API for that and one hasn't been released to the public for BF1 yet... if ever. To the best of my Knowledge BFTracker has limited access and provides an API to the info they get. That's really all there is to the best of my knowledge.
