Raptor Rescue & Raptors Propensity for...

...getting hung up\stuck on islands.  Can this be fixed already.  I was in with a near perfect team.  Every Japanese Ship was sunk with 4.5 minutes left in the match.  I'm thinking WOO!  All wrapped up -- all stars victory.  Nope.  The Ranger\Raptor AI driven CV was stuck on an island.  All missions completed -- save the primary mission of the Raptor's AI being able to drive without piling into an island.  

This happens.  And not just infrequently.  Can this be fixed already -- or is this another "suck it up" whiner.  You don't like our game, go play something else (which I intend on doing for the rest of the evening after this goofy result).

The single biggest problem with Raptor Rescue is that players forget it’s called, wait for it...“Raptor Rescue”, not “Hunt CVs to the exclusion of keeping Raptor alive” :cap_happy:

Which island ? it should be fix but it you notice it on a island tell and team mate to ram it and get it moving again. It shouldn't happen you can tell very early that's it went crazy

If it helps you, the bots get stuck on islands mostly because someone runs along their path and collision avoidance throws them against an island or if they are focused and try to dodge.

Easiest way to prevent that is not operating near the bots and drawing aggro to you, not using them as meat shields.

If they do get stuck, you can try pushing them out.

That mission needs a tug boat consumable, tug the Raptor when it gets stuck.

This means they'll pull Narai again to 'fix' some issue.

Narai appears to be fine on PTS, so maybe it's back with the next patch drop.  (Next week, I think.)

Of course it will, after Ranked is over and you don't need to urgently grind tier 7 ships to unlock some tier 8 for the season.

Point was, they've pulled Narai more than once to fix some 'issue' that results in probably losing a star.  Going from a 5 star win to a 4 star win.  That was so egregious they needed to pull it.  Yet RR has been bugged since day one where you can go from a 5 star win to a loss (due to programming of the bot) and it's not been touched.  I've had games in RR like the OP mentioned.  A group of randoms who communicated in chat and coordinated.  Focused the high risk targets and swept the board clear.  Only to watch Raptor (without having been rammed) make a hard starboard turn into an island where it remains until the game ends.  So a sure 5 star win turns into a loss.  But Narai gets pulled to be 'fixed'.
