Please activate « alternative battle interface mode » in the settings. Hits dont matter, damage matters. If you dont have that on you cant tell if you are damaging ships when you hit them.

this game in contrast to reality has dictated that ships be bow on in order to damage/avoid being damaged. If you are sailing broadsid in an effort to cross the T as all sound naval doctrine dictates you will be rapidly deleted. 

These two tips should help you greatly. But if you are not happy get out now and dont spend any money or you will only regret.

Ammo selection makes a difference on how much damage you can do.  As a general rule, use HE against destroyers.  Use HE on targets that have their bows pointed to you.  Use AP on targets that are showing you their sides (many destroyers don't have effective AP against battleships).  Watch how much damage you are doing, because WHERE you hit the enemy ship also matters.  If you are in a destroyer or light cruiser and your HE is doing little damage against an enemy battleship's hull, start shooting the ship's superstructure.

Most ships have four zones that can be on fire (forward, mid-forward, mid-aft, and aft).  If you have set one fire, try to get another on a different zone.

If you are playing Co-op mode, the enemy :ships: usually focus fire on the ships closest to them.  If you are being too aggressive and rushing to the front lines, you will likely be focused by several enemy ships and will be sunk quickly.  Also use islands to protect yourself from some enemy ships, while still allowing you to fire on others.  Reducing the number of enemy ships that can hit you will help you survive longer.

The things you have described are not game problems.  You haven't learned how to play the game, yet.  There is some thought required...this isn't a ships version of Atari 2600's "Combat":

Find videos like the following and learn from them. You can also find a clan with people who have been around a while and get them to give you tips. COOP should not be that hard and looking at your stats you still win 98% of the time in coop.

 

Watch the darn video and look for more.

You've only got 125 battles, so you still have protected status.  Don't try to go up tiers too quickly, you need to spend time at each tier to learn how to shoot and maneuver your ships.  I would concentrate on learning to use ships at tiers 3 and 4 before moving up.  While you are still in protected status try a couple games of Random just to get a feel for how to play against human players with limited experience (once you hit 200 battles or if you play tier 5+ you will be assigned to the general queue and will face players with a lot of experience.)

What ships are you playing?  Battleships, cruisers and destroyers are used differently in this game.  One size does not fit all, so hard to give you advice without knowing what ships you are using.  

Bots (ai as you call them) are outstanding at avoiding torpedoes.  You need to get very close to use them (under 3 km).
