Friendly bot torpedoes

Just had a game where a friendly bot nearly torpedoed me because there was an enemy to the side. I'm not saying I moved in front of their torpedo launch. I'm saying I was to the bot's right by 3k. The enemy was to my right by 5k. And the bot launched torpedoes even though I was in the direct line of fire. I've been sunk by friendly bot torps before. Might be something the devs and programmers want to look into.

Happens often They don't see you when they are intent on torping someone behind you.

Should this be fixed? Absolutely.
Will it? Doubt it any time soon.

Note: there isn't such a thing as "friendly torpedoes".

If the DD has torps on both sides and the one side facing the red ship is out he will fire the other side.

Dude, I'm sorry to say but this operator error, IMO.

Never get between a friendly torpedo-armed bot and the enemy.  NEVER!

Note, I say operator error because this is one failing of friendly bots that everyone should know exists and is one that's totally avoidable.

I would say the bots accurately replicate behavior of some random matches.

Now a real 200 IQ play would be, placing your ship in such a way  that enemy bots torpedo each other, while trying to torpedo your ship.
