Like how do you get 0?? Like how?! These are the guys that end up on my team like every round and not even kidding you. If I had a nickel for every solo game where half my team is gone in the first couple mins of the game id be rich.

patch has to have broken something...     how can you shoot down 6 planes and do 0 damage to them? wiki states plane damage counts towards exp earned....

I don't think that you get credit for your AI if you do nothing else.

I doubt he even loaded, but probably the planes flew over.

They usually go pink next game. 

I sure don't want to try to duplicate the issue just to see how much XP you get for getting 6 planes.

Afk, keyboard face, un potato ex viven, MIA,etc all have one thing in common. They usually go pink next game.

I wouldn't worry about it OP.

Not sure what OP is complaining about, this was far worse:

The Wooster was in the match but only managed 8 XP before he died.  The Midway never moved or sent a plane up and the french DD was a yolo at start of match.

Hmm... that is good to know, the cv was pink at match start too.. i didn't know that was a result of being afk in the previous match.  I figured he was just being a &^%&^%

     Not true. To prove it, run a Mikasa on autopilot throught the center of a Coop match without firing the main guns.  I guarantee the AI secondaries will rack up XP on the bots.

If the CV attacks DDs only, then they are being a /)%¢\<. CV players are an odd lot these days. 🐉😎😏💮

perhaps a difference between ship damage vs plane damage in this case to stop someone farming planes/exp in afk ships?

If I recall, WG had some issues deciding how XP was going to be awarded for plane kills.  I thought I read somewhere that for a while, none was awarded.  I could be wrong, but maybe that's still the case?

But then you are actually moving, and the game registers you as having actually done something.

Team damage subtracts XP.  Not much, but if it's only planes then maybe enough.

Could be, but yesterday I had an AFK Missouri in game (started pink, died pink, stayed pink) that two bots got close to (in that bots sails up to you and then backs away kind of thing).  The secondaries had to fire, and seeing as one was a Pensacola (Yes, we had a fail division too) I would have thought he would have gotten some damage.

I guess he could have had MFCS (this was all via the minimap on my part).
