Have they fixed the problem where the bots appear as players in the gametype stats.
Right now I'm checking the GSPY stats and ut2004 has reached a very good spot in number of players (place nr 8, above UT2003) in only 2 days of release but I'd like to know how accurate these numbers are.

I dunno if gamespy uses some of the built in polling functions, but as it is it's reporting current players as Total Players - Number of Bots. So... yes, maybe?

hmm ... there's only +/- 200 different botnames by default.
Unless Gamespy verifies the IP of all the names listed there's no way counting bots would do much to the statistics ...

Perhaps it should also start counting all the aimbots for CS as well ? ;)
