I seem to be encountering a lot of green-bot-heavy matches today. I expect it in the evening when lots of people have gone to bed, but not in the mid-afternoon. 

I also seem to be encountering a lot of slackjawed nincompoops; there was one chap whose first act on Two Brothers was to turn 180 degrees and circle back to hide behind a rock in the lower right corner. It was appalling.

Yeah well Granny, bless her 100 year old demented heart, is throwing fits lately. Keeps me busy.

Dunno, high tiers seemed to be in order for me, had an 8/1 run today which is unprecedented for weekends. No more pushing my luck though :Smile_hiding:.

Lots of CV's in the co-op queue? 30 sec max wait? It's often you and a cv who's time was up....:Smile_teethhappy:.

For me it's been getting all T10 games in T8 carriers.

I care less about getting uptiered as a thing, than the fact a T8 carrier is basiaclly useless in a T10 game.

'Oh, go and spot!' someone said in chat; great. Tell a Bismark in a T10 game it's only allowed to use it's secondaries.

The increase in CVs is leading to this.

The utter idiocy I saw this morning trying to secure 300xp blocks in Naval Battles can't possibly be blamed completely on potato carrier drivers.

Real life and the game its self are kind of tiring.

I have run into the same thing recently with co-op play, loads of bots. Not sure if it is players just waiting too long in queue or if there are just fewer players playing but it does "feel" weird. I was waiting in queue with two CVs, another BB, 2 cruisers and 2 destroyers and thought everything was cool so just hung out. When the match started, it was me on a team of all bots........... Was a struggle for survival for sure and in the end, I just didn't measure up. Course I hate BBs and rarely do well in them, just grinding my Nagato a bit. In about half my games today I had bots on my team which is very unusual. I did run into some human players on.my team who must not play very often. In one match, a human player in a Tirpitz with full health tried kiting a freaking bot Cleveland and got his booty kicked as he burned almost to the waterline. Luckily our DD players got to the cruiser and.gunned him down for the poor BB player.... It was truly an epic fight for the Tin Can sailors on the human team, they were outstanding players. Still wrapping my head around a Tirpitz fleeing a Cleveland though...

This thread is about bot teams in coop.

It may have to do with the Directive tasks requiring credits. Randoms are an easier place to earn credits so that could be a reason. 

Another could be the CV heavy MM, with the Co op MM struggling to distribute all the CVs and just dumping bots in the team to lessen the load.

I hadn't thought about that, really good reasoning and probably what is going on. Heck I even pondered playing PvP for credits but figure I have 4 more days to earn them so didn't want the aggravation of carriers.

Space Battles is taking it's share of players as well.

We do have weather sweeping across parts of the US that have some severe elements.

The games, including Co-Op, are so bad with so many CVs and potatoes that it's literally unplayable for me. Time to play other games.

Played about 15 games from 1-3:30.  Tiers 5 and 6.  Had zero bots, but always a RN or KM CV (LOT of Zepps).

Had one guy in a Zep in at least 3 games (I was driving the QE).  He was pretty good, always top half.  Forgot the name, but part of WOOP clan.

He would roll in late game if the bots got close enough to get the secondaries working.

My guess is this.

For someone like me who will play PVE to complete missions, the Space Battles took PVE's place until I needed to focus on some missions that can't be done in Space Battles.

CVpocalypse is upon us. The locusts are everywhere. The plague is real.

I'm on an extended break, maybe a permanent one if this cancer epidemic doesn't subside.

To be fair, on the test server a lot of people are mucking about trying new tactics, ships, and builds without mussing their precious live-server stats.

I know I've been guilty of this during PT 8.0 when I first sampled the new carriers. The whole dumbed-down flight sim approach put me into IDGAF mode immediately.

Oh I know, the whole point of the PTS is to test the new stuff, but it can be hilarious at times lol

You know what hilarious is? It's being spotted by two bot Bismarcks in your Lexington, and instead of blapping you immediately they cruise slowly up to you, sit inches away from you for a couple of minutes doing hardly anything, and let you get in a hundred secondary battery hits before they finally finish you off.
