I figured I should let everyone know about extremely disgusting behavior. I queued for casual with some friends today and encountered a heavy bot named "FROYO yomps" and with yomps' profile picture. One of the enemy medics was pocketing him (didn't catch the name) and playing with the bot was really annoying. I was curious how accurate of a profile they had. If a bot was using yomps' identity to disgust people, I figured they must use a similar profile, right?
After right-clicking the bot's name and clicking profile, yomps' actual profile showed up. I even went to RGL to double-check, and it's his profile. Here's a video I took with my NVIDIA ShadowPlay to show what I saw. One thing I forgot to do was check the bot's Steam ID in the console. Sorry that I didn't do that, I was too distracted by the whole situation. Here are a few things I noticed:
- The bot had the name "FROYO yomps", not "yomps" like the original
- TF2 isn't listed as recently played on yomps' profile
- I couldn't find yomps or anyone that seems like an unidentified bot in my recently played with list
I know that generally speaking, it's not good to bring attention to terrible actions like this as it just gives the bot creators more attention. However, this is really disgusting and I'm curious if anyone else has seen this. Here are some messages showing I'm not the only one who saw this.
