I'm currently grinding through the Swedish DD's to get the three crowns camo. I have two questions that need clarification.

1. Why does the Bot CV's when they're in game focus on one particular DD to ignore all others? I've seen this and when it happens every other bot within firing range focuses down on the single DD.

2. Why does Bots fire across the map in many cases on a target that isn't even firing at them when there are others around them pounding away on them?

I'm failing to understand the logic other than it's just the way the programing has been written. Kinda takes the joy out of playing a DD when this happens.

1: Because that’s how their programming works. You have to vanish from their notice to get them to change, and even that doesn’t always work.

2: Because stupid programmed ‘priority’ target programming that emphasizes a low hp ship, usually a DD, or a premium ship, or a human player; running away and on the other side of the map; instead of something with lots of health, 5k away, and punching the bot in the face.

So; because WG’s ‘programming.’

The bots will focus the first ship they spot which most of the time is a DD but I have had them focus my Texas with hilarious results.

They are programmed to eliminate the weakest, closest ship first (in that order), then move on to the next one.

Same reason as above, they are programmed to focus that one ship until it's dead.

The game hates DDs; get used to it.
