Surprisingly, CV player population vanishing from Co-op.

Yesterday we had a bit of controversy due to most co-op games featuring two player CVs, offset by two bot BBs on the red team.  (My Mushashi says "Thank YOU, WG!" by the way.)  I was advised WG reverted back to one CV per game for today.  I was really expecting to see nearly every game with a CV in it, since most had two yesterday, and maybe a que for CV players and lots of green bots in games as a result, BUT, the opposite is true. CV players are quite rare today.  Only had a CV in two of my first 10 matches, which really surprised me.  Where is everybody? 

Maybe after getting some in-game chat abuse thrown on them for not being "instant experts" on day one, CV players have retreated to the training room for a bit of tuning-up?  Or perhaps was a single day enough for them to decide this isn't working currently?  Anyway, not sure how things look in Random Battles numbers-wise, maybe all is well there.  If not, I'm curious how they are going to get their "live server balance testing" info with so few people playing them.

Abuse in  co-op..... I thought that didn;t happen. It is supposed to be a safe space for snowflakes.

For me it was called "I literally can't afford to keep training while losing this much money".  Even with all the economic signals up.

I had not considered that aspect.  Silver is tight in co-op for sure, even when you are dishing out the damage.

I have had multiple 2 CV games in Co-op today. Just had one maybe an hour ago so if this change was implemented it was just a very short time ago.

Yeah, I was kinda curious how the numbers were looking in Random.  So you think a lot of folks have moved back over there after slumming in co-op yesterday?  :Smile_hiding:

I was playing this morning and was told in chat they had reverted it to one per.   Maybe CV player numbers are up now  (CV players are all on the west coast?), or maybe they are just tweaking things dynamically depending on the cue.

I know I was spamming CV games in co-op to finish the surprise snowflakes. The T6 & T8 tech tree CVs got double coal this patch. My Saipan and Kaga got to do 1,050 coal and 210 Steel, so that was awesome.

I know a number of EU main players who have a alt account on NA, was also playing cv's on NA since we got the patch a day earlier. Now the patch is on EU as well and they went back to their main account on EU.

My personal beef with co-op is that the enemy team never has CVs. I play Co-Op to learn new mechanics so I don't suck in PVP. But what's the point of testing AA if none of the bots have planes?

Yes Co-Op is brutal on the Credits, and we have no idea if you are having to pay for each plane you lose or something either. So it’s one thing to bite the bullet and use Co-Op to collect the snowflakes for Steel, but another thing entirely to try and do a lot of training on higher tiered ships in Co-Op.

Particularly when some of the bots can prove themselves to be smarter opponents than a few of the humans in Randoms. So makes more sense to do the bulk of the training in Randoms and get paid for doing it.

I played a few CV matches just after noon central and the queue numbers for CV are definitely down but not by a lot. give it a few more days as we should be seeing more reasonable levels.

Be patient. They're working on the AI so bots can play the CV's
