This is why DDs aren't fun in Co-op, WG.  The moment you're spotted the enemy team flings a wall of HE at you.  Fortunately I was in a ship that can stealth-torp...barely.

Not bad, but by all rights it could have been much better if you take a look at the team lineups - notably without ending in me dying to a posse of battleships.  Blyskawica might have decent torps, but she's a gunboat first and foremost.  Except you can't fire your guns without being focused down.

If you're curious, the reason I died was because I got greedy and fired another salvo the instant my smoke lifted.  I got detonated by the first hit.

Yep, 110,000 in my Faragut yesterday but that is being completely selfish with smoke!

 

If I smoke/spot (unselfish), or fire once then cue the great chase across the map as the AI goes DD crazy as soon as it sees me.

 

Very good training for DDs that require stealth, but for gunboat DDs ouch. Even with stealth DDs it can get a little boring with such a DD focussed AI.

 

(Although it still scares me when WG state they have plans for CoOp). :honoring:

Someone mentioned in another post that it is not specifically DD's, it is actually the weakest or lowest HP target the AI focuses on.  Informal testing this evening seems to bear that out.

Get spotted in a CV. That will prove this theory false. 

They prioritize the DD and CV classes above others.

Nope.  It's CV > DD > CA > BB, then it goes by the lowest-tier ship visible.  Basically punishing you even harder for being uptiered than Randoms.  However, if the AI is already fighting a closer target of the same class, or one that is lower on the prioritization list, then they won't switch if a lower-tier ship enters their view.

You died in a coop. By bots.  Delete this game and never play again!

To my mind, playing DD in pvE is the toughest challenge.  The bots are very good at dodging... too good really, much better than most players.
