I would like there to be an option in which you can toggle to disable all trading between bots and players, this is an option to prevent bot abuse as well as colluding.
What does this mean?
In the game setup settings lobby, they are asking for the ability to disable trading entirely.
When play 1vs 1 trading is a waste of time.
Is this during the game or while creating the game?
While creating the game would be great
I think this would help in player vs bot game where bot keep requesting things, over and over again.
Lets be honest: bots are a really nice functionality to have and based on good algorithms but they are very very bad in trading. One should have the option to (for example in some advanced settings options when creating a game) disable trades with them.
"Add an option to disable trades with an eventual bot in case a player leaves earlier" (suggested by PotatoRiot on 2020-03-15), including upvotes (2) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
Situation: It is very frustrating when someone is winning just because the bot (read person who left mostly in the middle of the game) accepts his trading propositions all the time, even some propositions that mostly no one would accept.
Solution: To prevent this kind of situation there could be added the feature during the room creation where you can e.g. check the box if you don't want the trades with bots.

Bot trades typically ruin the game because bots are usually willing to trade all of the time, which makes the game less fun. Having an option of disabling bot trades will make the game better.

It would be great to have the option to set no bot trading at set up for all games. This would prevent disputes during the game when players disconnect. In cases where players have agreed to not trade with bots, this option would save time and avoid misclicks.
Many times players prefer to not trade with bots, if an online player gets disconnected and is replaced by a computer. Suggestions are made in the chat box but they can be missed and can throw off gameplay. Accidentally trading with bots when an agreement is made can cause tension. Same goes for people who decide against the no bot trade rule. My suggestion is this:
Offer a "No Bot Trade" check box in the Game Mode setup screen to make the rules clear for players. If the NBT box is selected t

I would like a "no bot trades" option during game set-up, but with more controls than just all-or-none. I want the option to disable all bot trades, or just the ones with other bots, or just the ones with humans. I would also like a point limit, like if a human has 3+ points (or whatever threshold is chosen at setup), they can't trade with bots anymore. Once a bot is disabled or disqualified by the set conditions, they shouldn't waste game time by proposing trades.
