Just had a sub battle (in a DD). Had some lag problems and got sunk because of it. Lots of bots in the game, including one of our DDs. Being sunk I had time to watch our bot  Farragut bearing down on a sub and suddenly stop at 1K from the sub.. I assume to avoid a collision. Just sat there while the sub sank it with bow on torps. 

WG might want to revise the bot programming.

Yeah, chaos theory programming. Lots of simple things, with percentage chances, to get things to react in computer games.

Funniest example of an ‘oops’ I ever heard of was when they were doing the battle scenes in LotR.

Orc and human armies bashing away at each other, nice and pretty in the test battle; (Helm’s Deep, or Minas Tirith,) when the programmers realized a few squads were missing.

After looking around, they realized the squads had locked into the tiny percentage ‘retreat’ choice, and run off into the corners of the battlefield.

Wait till they start shooting you. Your OWN bot team mates. I’ve gotten accustomed to it. Make a depth charge run *bam* usually a single shell or two from a nearby frenemy bot. I guess that’s their way of saying good job.

Who cares about bots.

Well, if I have to depend on them to win because most of my  team is bots, I tend to care. Especially in the sub mode where you need your bot DDs to deal with subs.
