For some mysterious reason of its own, the Ranger decided to run into this island. The devs didn't equip it with a reverse gear, so it continues to crush the accelerator and piled into the island. Finally we two BBs arrived to push it off the island...

...into the next island. Once again, it can't reverse or turn, just crushes the accelerator. 

Probably need to change that programming there....

I was in that match and it's the second time in three days we've  lost a match because of this crap. The red bots sure don't have a missing reverse gear.

Does it do this when the evac point is located at the north?

Didn't realize that the new Raptor can have a different escape route.

I believe Raptor has four escape routes now.  I've only seen three.  SW, W, NW

Why were you all trying to mate with the CV at the same time?

The Ryujo was behind the next island, not part of the Raptor rescue within Raptor Rescue at the time.

The Dallas was too small to shove the Ranger off that island. So we had to bring up the BBs, but then we couldn't slow enough to prevent it from hitting the other island and grounding again. At that point I just gave up. I can beat any number of red bot cruisers (next game had 14 citadels and 219K damage in Fuso) but I can't beat this.

Stupid to lose like this. I'm rather tired of it, frankly.

Weren't you in the match the other night when I tried to slow the Raptor so we could get the southern Red CV and it ended up sailing into an island and we found out then it had a Derp captain who didn't know ships could reverse...? :P

I see it. Thanks for your feedback. I'll transfer this information to developers. 
UPD: Please make ticket to support with these screenshots and some description attached. 
It's definitely a bug that was not detected during Public test.

You should find a DD mate that will run in circles just past the spawn point.

I was in this game as well. It was pretty funny to come back to find this after killing the 4 incoming cruisers from the east with my Fushun (with a little help on the tier 8, but did most of it all myself with an offensive smoke). You can see me in the background in the second screenshot.

I think Pointy Haired Jedi had a YouTube of this Op where the same thing happened.  

After the update it almost seems like Raptor goes out of its way to throw the game.

 

ETA: I think @Lord_Zath mentioned that he saw this happen in PTS.

Funny you should mention this because I just released a video two days ago showing a Raptor fail:

Fast forward if you want to the 12 minute mark.

BTW, this can happen easily enough in-game...  just bump Raptor into an island.  Done.  Same goes for the French operation where you can bump Ruan into an island.  I think it's happening more often in Raptor Rescue because there's no longer one path Raptor will take, meaning the chances of it turning into an ally are higher.  Add in the fact that people like to stay really close to Raptor...

We had one of the other bots get stuck on an island once in Hermes, not Ruan, in one game. In a way that was helpful as it was one of the battleships and couldn't die. The programmers really do need to add in an option for bots to reverse. How many do you have running with you? There are some nights where my group split into 2 divisions and we are getting new people every now and then. We could have both groups join up sometime if we're all on.
