Great games, but...
I think the bots need improvement. I've seen a lot of really negative discussions about the AI, and I have to disagree. I think it's great that the devs added bots, since it makes the battles larger and fills up servers which can have low player counts. They just need to change a few things.

1. The bots need to use trenches more when defending.
They will stand and shoot behind, or on top of a sandbag or something, making themselves massive targets. They need to actually use the trenches as cover and firing positions.

2. LMGs.
They can only HIPfire their LMGs, which is really not an effective use for them. The bots should deploy their bipods on LMGs when defending.

3. Access to more weapons.
The bots simply cannot use certain weapons, I think the devs should change this.
-MG-08/15
-MG-08/18
-Wex
-Hotchkiss
The MMGs here could work in a similar matter to the LMGs, just the bots use pistols when attacking since they cannot HIPfire.

Again, Verdun and Tannenberg are some of my favourite games, but with these changes, the matches would be a lot more fun, interesting, and realistic.

100% agree with everything said here!
Perhaps some more improvements to attacking and defending objectives. I often find that bots will miss the objective or will sit outside it while it’s being captured.
Outside of that they’re a great addition to the game!
AFAIK and as i remember The Pioneers use Wex... And MG Couldn't remember much, but i saw one of them used it. Maybe in rare occasions.

I would love to see a night and day brought in, because a feature of WW1 was night raids not just going over the top during the day. also longer artillery barrages.

Bots don’t used MMGs or flamethrowers (most likely because bots would walk into it and die).

The weather system in Tannenberg would be a great addition to Verdun.

You might not get longer artillery barrages but there’s a console command /setabilitycooldownmodifier that allows you to change the cool down period for artillery barrages. It’s only for custom matches though.

"The bots are really great, but there needs to be a significant amount of work put in to make them great!"

Ah yes these discussions always crack me up.

Nearly as funny as people suggesting the game be free to play.
i wonder how broken it would be if bots used bipods

It might be broken in a match with lots of players, but I’d imagine real players would pick that squad up pretty quickly. It would be nice for servers with 8 players in or less. That way mostly bot populated servers would feel more realistic.

Mgs are broken with real players too.
