Bot IFF still trash

Was playing Coop in a DD. I had smoked up and was in reverse. A bot cruiser T-bones, pushes me parallel to it, and then launches torpedoes right into me. I had no time to respond. Got chunked by two. There wasn't even any red bots along that vector. Its not the first time this has happened. Is it possible to give bots an AI overhaul to check torps when a friendly is in their path?

The bots have always been blind to friendly ships between them and the enemy.

Pay attention to where the friendly bots are, and don't get between your friendly bots and the enemy.  Simple as that.

Pretty much this, they have never been able to fix that blind spot they have.

"Been able to" or "tried"?  I don't really know.

What I think happens is if a bot is looking at a red ship before you came between them and the red ship is they forget that green ships exist but not all the time.

You know why this doesn't often happen the other way around?  Bots don't turn broadside and come to full stop right in the path of oncoming players.

Should an ally destroy or damage your vehicle, the Team Kill tracking system will register the incident.

Considering the TK status of the offender’s account, the appropriate measures will be taken. At a times, this also means that the offender will not turn Pink (TK threshold not reached).

However, we would like to remind you that all allied damage is registered.

The machines are just practicing before they rise up to destroy humanity.

I would be okay with it if that was the only time it happened.  But, I have seen friendly bots squirt torps in directions with NO enemy ships, no ships of any type or color in the area.  And, I have had them launch torps seemingly aimed at me when there were no red ships on that side of the map at all (I'll frequently put green bots between me and the red bots, so they become the closest target for the reds).

Bottom line...you can't trust a green bot with torps.

No this is different. I've been noticing a huge increase in friendly torpedo hits on my ships in COOP. It's happening since the last update.

They are firing directly into me from close range.

I think this is confirmation bias and that you are just experiencing a streak. They have always done this, they literally do not see friendly ships.

That is a bug that I think they are having trouble recreating but it isn't as common as firing through friendlies.

If there were no enemy bots in the vector why did you need to drop smoke? Seems odd that a DD is dropping smoke in co-op with no enemies nearby.

I've seen bots dump torps toward the map edge where there WERE no enemy ships so being behind them is sometimes just as dangerous.

I've seen that too. Unload a rack to starboard, then to port. I assume they are just being 'balanced'!
