WG is adding 100 points or whatever they call it to the game at the start. Do you think that will make the battles last longer?  I would like to see the battles last a little longer.  Add more bots on the red team? Maybe 1 extra ship at tier 2 and 3, 2 extra bots at tier 4 and 5 and so on?

supposedly it will extend the matches so that the mercy rule doesn't come into affect as early I believe.

It will have little impact on random "mercy" endings except for one more ship lost and in a match that isn't a "mercy ending this could actually end the matches a bit sooner as that is 100 fewer points to earn. I see this having more impact on co-op.

it was adjusted recently. IMHO, it has made a marked difference. For the better. Most end quickly now, if green has few loses, and red never gets a cap. Seen very few that end abruptly with significant points still on the board. Maybe 1 outta 10, or even 15-20. It's rare to have them end with 2, or more, red ships on the board. What you may be looking for is Operations. A scenario like Newport Defense is a non-stop pile on of red ships, with objectives and tasks. And actual teamwork, mostimes.

I see a lot of battles end with 2 red ships left.

This should work. At max, usually 3 bots left. At minimum, 2. This should get it down to 1 or none.

Finally back to the good old days.

I give this idea a two thumbs up.

Now if they can just get the bots to talk to us and say cheesy dialogue.

Here are some suggested phrases.

" Your captain oddly looks like Mr Conway"  

"Notser, is that you?"

"We will make camp behind these islands and fight like humans do in Randoms because it's funny."

"You have overextended human, we will all focus you now."

" Our Colorado will tear your boat apart."

"Please run, we like it when you run."

"DDs, keel them!"

"CVs are the Devil! We are coming for you!"

"I might have one Red eye, but I shoot Better than you human."

"Why no, we bots don't cheat, we just have all the upgrades and skills."

"Yes, I like shooting you in the butt SteelRain, all bots do."

"We have a surprise for you humans next April fool's day. "

"If you can dodge a wrench, then you can dodge AP."

"Witness my torpedo beats human!"

"Remember when I said I would sink you last human? I lied."

"We will take your waifu captains, especially Dasha."

"I smell potato."

"We only fear one player, the vampire pirate in a NY or Danae."

😏😎

Would it be awesome to hear them complain about their CV?

Oh yes, it would. Even them yelling at their DD to spot would send me to the ER from the side-splitting laughter.

And if they cry from AP bomb drops, I just might lose it. And the team will fall out of their chairs laughing.

And can you imagine, the reaction the Smolensk bot has when a BB hits it with HE? And it would be comic gold to hear a burning Hindenburg bot say, Oh, the Humanity.

Oh, I can write this stuff all day. WG would try this some day and I just might be asked to submit some lines. I will get paid of course.

Extra bots wouldn't help. It would make it worse actually.

The basic problem is, bots are very bad at scoring points. You lose points when a ship on your side dies, you gain points when you kill a ship on the other, and you get points by capping.

The only thing bots have going for them is they're good shots. They take casualties like mad, and have a tendency to drive through caps to get to the ships on the other side.

co-op battles mission states  sink all ships or capture the base and yet it finishes long before all enemy ships are sunk  or the base has been captured . that's annoying . 

also  they should stop bots ramming into eachother all the time  ,that doesn't help anyone trying to get ship exp's .

If I get a game with all bots I just put one message to all at the start, "Greetings Program".
