My biggest gripe -- MM. But not what you think.

I HATE getting into a Co-op game, looking at the roster, and seeing 5-7 BOTS.  Green bots suck 90% of the time.  They go out and die because they think it's their destiny.  Occasionally there will be a toaster-brained hero, but that doesn't excuse the vast majority.

It used to be rare, at low player-count times.  Now it's every other T10 battle, even in prime time.  And in T8, which supposedly is protected against the more perverted proclivities of RNGesus. 

Looka here, WG.  I will gladly spend more than 30 seconds in queue if it means I can get some actual humans to play with.  Please put that in your pipe and smoke it .. er . take it under advisement, or something.

Could be that with out the right ship, camo and premium time it’s difficult to make credits at t10.

Ya want real people? Try randoms...

But that means you get intelligent human opponents in randoms. Which is what co-op players are ultimately trying to avoid... right? They just wanna pop dumb ol' bots?

We avoid them for many reasons. I am grinding Courbet right now having reset the French line. Why on earth would I want to play a T3 and T4 BB without AA in the completely idiotic 3v3 CV environment WG has created for the low tiers? I am grinding the French DDs in Coop since I don't like playing w/o smoke. I play Tirp in coop for the secondary lulz, which I couldn't get in Tirp in a Random -- it's been pretty heavily power creeped. 

Also, i must dispute your claim that humans in Randoms are intelligent. Lots of Stoopid out there in the playerbase. "I think I will load into the match in a T8 Massachusetts with a 22% win rate averaging 20k damage, even though my most played ship is a T3 St. Louis!" Had a score of ships like that today.

It's fun to play "no main battery tirpitz" and see how much damage you can get with just secondaries, torps, and ramming :)

It's not a MM issue.  It's a people don't want to waste credits at high tiers shooting bots issues, which I don't blame them. Much more profitable in credits, xp, free xp and commander xp to shoot real players than bots.  And if you extend the wait time for co-op, it makes it less profitable to those who do play co-op at high tiers because they spend more time waiting and not in game making credits.

Yuppers… lots of BOTs in COOP at this time of morning in Tier VIII and above in Server NA... think about it.,...      early EST time as the Central and PST folks are counting ZZZ.    

I found that it starts getting a bit better after around 11AM EST.   Even in Tier V-VII which I play a lot during this time frame about 50% of the games are mostly BOTs.

With the number of games those guys play, they have to be raking in the oil.

Lots of benefits to having him in the clan:

  1. Oil
  2. Stats are likely better than most of the human players
  3. Never gets chat banned
  4. Doesn't complain
  5. No clan drama
  6. Willing to play at any time of the day

Sometimes, however, the bots just fall your way. Had this happen just yesterday in co-op. Five bots on the greens.  Inexplicably, there was not as much mutual bot murder as is the norm. The other two human players got overcome by the Red's Republique and GK, and left it to me to clean up the mess in Kremlin. Kremmy and I were up to the task:

Where's the George Peppard/A-Team "I love it when a plan comes together" meme when you need it?

There I fixed your post. 

 

In all seriousness though, as worthless as high tier co-op is you do have a reasonable point. The problem is there are like 10-20 people playing co-op past T5....just get aslans mod and change all enemy player names to BOT and play randoms...turn your chat off even you've been playing co-op for years you've got to be able to at least hit something by now, play the game with humans if you want to play with humans.

That's debatable...

Not yet.  I think he found a better clan.  Or more fitting, a Lone Wolf clan.

Unless you're running without permacamo, that's just not true. 

And as I said, it's not just T10.  I mention T10 because we used to be able to get full games and have a blast at T10.
