Guess: Which side are bots, which are potatoes, or, are neither bots? Choose wisely :cap_wander:.

Originally, I was going to pick potatoes, since capping really isn't that important in co-op.

But, the BBs chasing the DD, seems bottish.   And it looks like a 8v8 game.

Will choose bots, although I've seen potato matches that are similar.

Reds are the bots.

Correct. :cap_like:

Reds are bots. But I've seen so many potatoes do that it's one of the reasons I posted this. I wish I had gotten the shot earlier because originally it was a full on lemming train to A with my team scattered around capping.

 

I've been in and out of co-op today because of all the personal missions and whatnot so I figured other people are too also making it less obvious but I didn't think to count the ships so that is a definite clue that one would have to be bots (unless it was from early/late).

BB chasing a DD isn’t a potato move it’s a survival move in a attempt to by time until a cruiser can assist assuming they are spamming “help me!” 

Now two BBs chasing a DD those be potatoes.

I have YET to see a BB chase a DD and live to tell about how it is not a potato move...
While I agree about the cruiser part.... WAITING for a cruiser to show up is like expecting teamwork in Random PVP battle...

You're kidding, right?  Many Bismark drivers would disagree and have the DD scalps to prive it.  And the Lyon with 16 rifles can shake up a lone DD easy.

that is to say you are chasing a.DD that is shooting his guns at you so as to be detected at 10KM or less to USE said secondaries....(BISMARCK) or guns of the Lyon....
THAT would be a potato move by the DD...not a BB... but no   chasing a DD with a BB alone is definitely a potato move, SRY... it is a bad thing to do, IF the DD knows anything about being a DD and torping the crap out of a BB silly enough to chase him all alone without cruiser or DD escort... so yeah, I am not kidding

As long as the DD thinks the BB will delete him and keeps zig zagging him he will have to defensive popping Smoke. Waiting for torpedoes to reload becuase one or two torpedoes will not sink a BB. The DD needs the right line up for the perfect shot. If the BB keeps his bow pointed toward him and keeps WASDing that perfect shot is never going to happen and now the DD is worrying if a cruiser, an aircraft, or both are coming and may just break the attack. If a BB runs it will be sunk as the DD has the speed and concealment advantage and can set up a shot pretty much at his leisure.

Yet the human teams in coop without fail always seem to have a least one so called human DD that puts more importance in running from cap to cap than helping the team, now does that make them a BOT or a potato?

that makes them/him  SMART... because when a DD shoots and is spotted by bots... it is ALL HANDS ON DECK for those Bots and they will chase the DD even if another ship is less than half the distance away and running on 3HP///LOL... if the DD is quiet and sneaky  he will cap and cap and cap... and never get a scratch on him...

I was thinking that having team mates that are AFK would at times be more useful than some I see...

That is what is supposed to do the bots rarely cap that is a way to secure a Coop win as the bots are to busy chasing. to cap.

Neither one of you answered the question:  Does that make him a BOT or a potato?

Securing a co-op win through 'capping' is not smart, it is the cowards way out, not to mention selfish and cheats everyone else on the human team out of damage points and xp. Totally eliminating capping from co-op battles and making every one of them a fight to the death would be a better way of doing things. If you play co-op, I'm sure you have heard others say, don't cap, kill.

Yes, there is that occasional rare exception when the human team is down in numbers and someone getting in a far cap will draw the BOTS back out and you might have to use it to win. then yes, otherwise I would say, no.

I do believe I said potato. Illegal bots tends to cap as it is an easy thing to program to get results.
