So, what's the story with having two bots (green and red) when they can't hit anything?

What are they suppose to achieve if the bots can't decide a game, do any damage and only spot?

Just to allow you to do some AA damage?

Ok, that seems to be the explanation then.

 

All games end up the same way, everybody chasing down the red CV.

It's PR bull:etc_swear: by WG with an aim to sell the lie that CVs are not OP and easy to counter. :Smile_trollface:

If you are in low tier DDs you can get perma-spotted whole game by enemy BOT CV who will circle above you indefinitely because you can't shoot them down (no AA) and they can't hit you... it is loads of fun... :Smile_hiding:

The bots are only good at defending themselves. Permaspotting is a pest, too, but mostly they just derp around with rocket planes until they come under attack from ships within 10k... Then suddenly they start attacking with torp planes, and they're not bad with those.

Dive bombers can hit some times too. But I agree, ignore Rocket planes (except for the spotting, so knock them down quickly, ) mind the dive bombers and evade the Torpedo Bombers. 

 

What I also note is that Red Bot CVs are unerring in locating Green DDs at the start of the match and will fly straight to them with rocket planes.

Good job they can't hit jack:etc_swear:!

Thats the bots "RPF-lite" system baked into the AI, a company decision to ensure that humans can't "hide" if they started losing to the bots. So every bot knows the rough direction the have to sail/fly to reach the closest ship.

Huh?

 

In my coop battles the CV is replaced with an extra BB...:Smile_amazed:

 

Presumably because all the CV bots are already busy, there are only so many and not an endless resource.

 

I think the general problem with CV's on either side in CoOp is the fast speed of the battle, just not enough time to fly back and forth where the other ships can potentially be constantly engaged.

Not always. If you play enough games you will get them.

That is why they put them in, to lower Coop rewards!:Smile_trollface:

Before, you could have a fun quick match ending in 5-6 minutes, now you take double the time chasing the CV to the map border, without gaining anything extra. Even more fun in Italian cruisers, when you cannot even damage the CV, because the SAP keeps bouncing until he reaches the border and finally has to turn...
