Now, players may encounter bot-operated aircraft carriers in Co-op battles even if no ships of this type are captained by real players. A bot-operated aircraft carrier is also added if there is an aircraft carrier captained by a player.


So Co-Op CV games - where you don't have a CV on your side.

They’ll either be completely worthless, or OP bots hacks because of ‘programming necessary to make the bots competitive.’

IOW; perfect weapon drops, perfect AA dodging, perfect F key spam, AP citadels, fires, and floodings galore.

Not exactly looking forward to their return.

The achievements are currently inactive; that may be what you heard/mean.

No, I heard it does not reward (ie; XP/Credits type rewards) as well shooting them down as it once did.

They did 2 very good thing: removed those CV from competitive (for now at least) and unnerfed yoyo. This is very big and very positive. On the other hand they nerfing Daring and Chung Mu... well, I guess they have to nerf something after all.

As Blackbeard said: "If I don't kill a man every now and then, they forget who I am."

More than you get currently as you will be able to shoot planes down and damage the CV.

A bot CV with infinite planes that strikes the same person again and again, with BOT precision... what could go wrong.

Bot CVs always liked to pick 1 ship till it was dead and they had a thing for slow BBs.

Or destroyers...

...but real players seem to as well, so I guess that’s good?

I only pray they do that to my ships, I'd like to get all the aircraft kills instead of anyone else getting any.

 

I have tons of AA ships, AA Cruisers, AA Destroyers, AA Battleships that I have never removed their AA Spec from.

I

AM

READY

 

You know what's even better?  Engine Boosting Georgia to sail right up with the Destroyers.  I'm positive the Bot CV will go after me, and my AA will profit as a result :cap_rambo:

Maybe not, but at least we will get to feast on the carrier at the end.

Good AA guns need exercise.  It'll be fun!

The reward is padding the ribbon bar and watching planes' smokey trails splash into the water.

  The old bot CV's also had a thing for US CA's and CL's, lol.   You could make a rather pretty penny simply by blowing ridiculous numbers of planes out of the sky!

  In a match full of Meh AA BB's and DD's, my AA spec BUFFALO is the ship you're going to obsess over?   Okayyy.   He did no damage to me; I nearly stripped him of planes.  Even better, his cruiser buddies spent the match showing me thier broadsides, lol.   That was an epic game!

  To be honest, given WG's history with over tuned bots  (or completely useless ones)  I'm not looking forward to the return of CV's.  In particular since they gutted the AA capability of a lot of my favorite ships.

  I'm expecting they'll either be laughably bad- or they'll be God-like OP- with not much in between.   If it's the latter, I do believe I may just retire.   BB's are nearly obsolete in most matches as it is...  (With CA's not far behind)

I doubt it.  The current AA system isn't good like the previous one, but it does punish severely straight line flying.  Bots make a straight line to attack in all things they do.  I am not worried one bit and I am eager for their arrival.

 

The AI can't even sail Destroyers, Cruisers, etc. properly and just sail them right to us until they're dead.

Destroyers don't stay concealed and Stealth Torp.

Cruisers don't Kite.

Battleships that specialize in ranged combat YOLO rush us until they're dead.

Let me know once the bots in this game do sophisticated movements.  Because right now they all suck and I even see tons of them get themselves stuck in the middle of channels or between islands.

So I highly doubt these bot planes know how to weave, etc. like Carrier players will try.  I doubt they will "Slingshot."

 

I am not worried about aircraft at all.

Last night in RANDOMS, I had 31 planes fly to their deaths in my Baltimore's AA. I guess the carrier player (T8) got careless, or dropped a fighter CAP where he should not have. We lost, but I feasted on planes and so did the Cleveland who just beat me out for top spot.

Bot CVs are not going to be that good.

The only thing the bots do well is cheat - they miraculously dodge torpedoes, launch them after they have exploded, and angle in spooky tune to your ammo choices. But that's all they've got, because otherwise they're dumb as a box of hammers.

I wouldn't be surprised to find out that adding CV's back to co-op is step 1 towards adding CVs/aircraft back into the operations that are currently sidelined.  Put them in co-op, see what happens.  Make changes, see what happens.

One can only hope!  I miss Dynamo, Ultimate Frontier and Cherry Blossom.

Not looking forward to this. Co-op is one of the last bastions of hope for this game. I think others are correct in assuming the bots will either be stupidly OP or just useless. WG really is the no fun police this year. I don't like CVs, I don't want to play in a game with them, I refuse to accept them into my gaming experience. They're pure cancer and that's it.
