Recently played a coop battle where one of the bots displayed a negative number in ships sunk.  Have never seen this or heard of it.  No results from a brief search. 

Just curious...... a glitch, or....?

The bots excel at TKing one another. A team kill counts as -1

If you get in their way, they will kill you, Skynet is watching....:Smile_trollface:

The bot CV's are super scary, they will make a perfect drop with the exception that there is a friendly in the way of their torps.

One another, me, islands, whatever is in their way.

Usually they just ram the enemy.

You have led a charmed WoWS life, apparently. 

Human players will also show -1 if a team kill is their first kill.  If you have one enemy kill and then team kill, you will -1 to 0, and so on.

Sometimes they just launch at nothing... (maybe they have something against whales?)

Dropped on a bot once and failed to sink it. Of course it then proceeded to sink my ally.

Seconds later, as I watched from my carrier overhead view; the bot launched torps AT NOTHING. Not even in the direction of my recently deceased ally, but just towards open water with no possible target.

(ninja’d)

Not only that, Green or Red, it doesn’t matter. I’ve seen both with negative scores.

Thanks everyone for your replies.   I guess I never paid enough attention to the Score screens to notice this before now.

I was playing COOP to blow away Snowflakes.  In one match, the Omaha on my team nearly torped, nearly pushed me out my smoke, and the rammed the New Mexico on the red team.  I had to finish the New Mex off.  I was about to question what in the world was going on, then I noticed the Omaha was a bot on my team.  That is how good they are, they make you think they are just insane players... :cap_haloween:

I did that myself while getting a snowflake on Kaga in Co-Op the other day.  I hadn't otherwise played my CVs since the rework was confirmed...

Got pink, of course, and apologized to the guy in the way.

Being confined to co-op for teamkilling is no threat to them - they are already there anyway! And nobody is going to delete their account for repeated offences once orange.

I had one launch torps from right behind me, nothing else in the vicinity,  fortunately there was enough room for the torps to pass on either side of my ship.  I was amazed when the torp warning went off, I was like there aren't any carriers in this battle, then I spotted the green bot and his white torps.  He had been sailing along just off my port side, then must have made a sudden turn and launched, he then proceeded to sail away towards the edge of the map.  Maybe they put too much Vodka in his fuel oil?

if they kill more friendlies than enemies. I've seen a player with a -2 once. Wish I still had the screenshot for that. that was hilarious, even though I was one of the ships he sunk.

Well, if enough reflected damage kills the TK'er, that's how to get a twofer real easy.

The best ones are when they launch the torps in the opposite direction to where the target is!

Wargamming wants you to have the look and feel of randoms, so occasionally the bots will tk one another.  In the next patch they will start being salty with their bot team mates. (just kidding)

I wonder what WG would do if you reported them for team killing?
