Adding Bots might save the Game
Devs,

Forge is an awesome game but hard to learn. Many stop playing because it takes time to learn the mechanics and begin enjoying the matches. One thing I've seen that works are bots mixed in with players. Bots give room for noobs to learn how to score kills and learn the flow of maps. Also it helps to level up easier and be competitive when an actual player is in the match.

This is what saved Red Orchestra 2 from dying and what has kept Section 8: Pejudice from shutting down its servers! Bots!

Forge would only benefit from servers that fill empty slots with bots and kicks bots when a player joins. Of course, this means we must have a SERVER BROWSER to choose playing with bots or just players.

Just an idea for the devs. I hope this game becomes a classic since it has a lot of potential.

Glad to hear you like Forge and I really appreciate you sharing your feedback. We're always looking to make new improvements, so it's incredibly helpful when fans let us know how they feel.

We just launched Patch 1.03 today. It doesn't include bots, but it does have many other features that have been requested very frequently. Be sure to keep a look out for our future updates!

Many players have trouble learning how to play, and while the tutorial helps, it doesn't give them an idea of how the skills and classes work in an actual multiplayer game with objectives, allies, enemies, etc.

I and many other people would have paid full price for this game at launch if it had bots, The lack of bots made me pass as I would like to have a way to enjoy the game if online dies.

Yes, this is definitely on our radar, so you can expect to see some changes to address these issues. Glad we're on the same page!

I like your idea but i don;t know how hard its for dark valve to make bots that are not hitting everything, and are still actuly doing somthing

I agree with all above regarding bots. I wanted to pick this up then I read other players feedback regarding tutorial and learning curve on this game. I'll get this as soon as I see bots vs players implemented so i can see how this game flows before jumping into pvp. @Dev ty for responding, i hope we'll see this feature soon.

We need bots! I have just got the game yesterday and there is no one in the game! (Quick Play > Random > Empty Servers..) So it looks to me that I have paid for "waiting for other players".
