A while back I asked about opting out of maps ( I hate one of them )   and it was because i didn't like using expensive camo and signals on rounds that last 3 minutes or are set up where you MAY get one kill tops.  Well One of the guys said " Bots key on signals"    I now know it is  true.  I played pretty sparse , with just perma camos and low grade signal or two. Played ALL evening getting 1 to 3 kills a round.. on fire having a great time.  Was feeling good so i put a PREMIUM signal up to help me finish this task and I lasted LESS THAN 60 SECONDS!  Ok so I think that was a fluke..try again.. CRAP it's epicenter ( the one I hate ) I get all of 650 damage ( all night MINIMUM of 70 to 100K  )  I look up two DDs have me sandwiched in a 16 torp [edited]!!  so I try ONE MORE TIME.  I really suit up and take my CL out.  I go right...gonna set up a nice crossfire, I come around the corner SIX SHIPS WAITING POOF gone in a hail of fire smoke no good..couldn't run , every hit was massive damage.. crap, even the SEAGULLS took a bite out of my [edited]..  Now I didn't in ANY way change the way I play but went back in with nothing and guess what.. GREAT ROUND.    I will never use cash for those again... I thought the people who told me that were kidding.  they weren't.

Ain't no tin foil hat.

I've had exactly the same thing happen to me. It's so obvious.

You really need to start hiding your coding better WG. (Or hey, how's this for a thought... DON'T RUN THIS CHEAT CRAP ON BOTS. People really like to have a level playing field and not get handicapped for running 'bonus' items YOU yourselves put in the game.)

Keep on wearing the tinfoil hat.

there are very few here but I notice you are one of the only really childish trolls that seem to always be here.  isn't the game keeping your attention?   Seriously , what do people like you get out of it?  Nevermind...we know.  So nice to have the Ignore option...CHECK

This sounds like confirmation bias to me.. Being a position to get mauled by 6 bots sounds more like lack of awareness and fatal errors in how you handled the ship coming out from behind cover. Im no fan of the way WG does things most of the time but this sounds like a conspiracy youve convinced yourselves of more than anything.

My CB ships, like Gearing go fully kitted out, even in coop....

(I really love the attention)

I haven't played Coop in a while. But from my experience in Randoms. Whenever I use special signals with Type 59, or Frosty Fir Tree, I get an awesome MM (sarcasm) with good players on their side and we get few. Could be tin foil or whatever, but it just so happens at an alarming frequency. I am more afraid of the Hydra signal than Ouroboros.

Which ever T8+ that I am grinding that I think will benefit from a few of my hundreds of signals and have no trouble with being focused that wasn't my own fault. :Smile_sceptic: Maybe if you encouraged the bots? :Smile_teethhappy:

Otherwise...

I run full specials in co-op often, it has never changed a thing: I mow down the bots while the bots mow down my teams. Signals make zero difference on whether the bots key on you. The bots are set to key on DDs first, then they'll switch to the lowest hp ship and even ignore a DD to do it.

I use all 5 economic flags in each coop game I play until I collect all three crates and complete both daily missions. I then remove the flag until the next day.

In over 4,000 coop games I have noticed no change in bot behavior whether I use signals or not.

I honestly wonder whats in the AIs rations sometimes... ive seen all 8 ships go down the crack in two brothers... ive seen all 8 go to A1 after a lone tirpitz... if its signals doing it, id be fascinated to see some hard data to back it up... maybe @Lert has a month of free time with nothing better to do?

This explains why I thought I saw my boss eating a cricket. Either that or it was a really bizarre dream. Pretty sure I saw Cersei Lannister's head on a dragon come to think of it.

You are complaining about co-op?  Be a man, dress your ship up, select randoms, and try hard.  Really?  Co-op?  Your using premium signals in co-op?  Since your throwing $ out the window to begin with, why do you mind?

Pray tell what is this premium signal you used? Because I don't think your story holds together.

If you are dying within 2 minutes, that is you going YOLO and/or still needing to learn how to play. Any signals you have (and how you acquired them) is irrelevant.

Ummm??? This is a new one to me and I have 12.5K+ Co-op games. :Smile_amazed:

I run camo's (either one time use or perma) every game and flags most games (T7+ tech tree get flags every time - I don't always use them on premiums). I have never felt because I run signals I was focused more by the bots. Only time I can say that really does happen is when you play a DD. Bots are obsessed with DD's and will go for them like a dog goes for a bone.  

Actually have had countless games where I will go to a cap alone or with another ship and only have 1 or 2 bots show up to fight. Have had countless times where I am ignored by the bots even when right in the middle of them.

I don't put anything past WG but this one even stretches my limits of believing a conspiracy theory on them.

Attitudes like this are why so many play Co-op over PVP.

Playing PVP doesn't make you a man or a better customer for WG.

Why do YOU mind where other's play or choose to use their resources?

Based on my experience I disagree.

I have over 2,600 coop games & getting the same results.

I actually have seen it said the color of your socks has a much larger impact on your game play. Nekked feet is just standard, randomness, so go with nekked feet for the most even shot at RNG. 

You want some solid advantages against the bots? Get a pair of these socks..

Getting targeted by 3/4 of the bots means you have made a poor choice or two.

I am speaking from experience.

On a good day you can sink 4 or more bots too. Came close to 6 kills shells beat my torpedoes to the target.

That could have been me.  But what I said was, "I look for signals and I go after those whales."  And I was referring to Randoms.
