Humans sunk. Bots battle on alone.

Why hasn't this been fixed yet? It's been reported many times!
Co-Op battle. All humans are sunk, but ahead on points. We have a bot BB & CV. They have one bot BB. The battle went on for several minutes until our bots were sunk, & we lost! 
Does that make sense to anyone?

Either just esc out and take the draw, (game will end immediately,) or wait it out.

Not always a loss, the Green bot(s) sometimes win. Frustrating to watch at times because ALL the bots sometimes do stupid things or act afraid of each other, but certainly not a guaranteed loss.

Sorry, but if we earned a win, then I think we should get the win. JUST HOW FREAKIN' HARD WOULD IT BE TO CODE THAT?  It's been going on for months.

Coop follows the same rules as random battles. Random battles don’t just end when none of the win conditions have been met and ships are remaining on each team, so why should Coop battles end early?

You don’t earn a win by playing a good 3/4 of a match before dying.

But you hadn't quite earned it yet. Being ahead on points and ships is a good place to start, but if you haven't left your bot ships in a position/condition where they can definitely beat the last red bot, you can't claim the win.

Gotta remember, red bots are generally better than green bots and there is always RNG. Typically the bot CV (green or red) is useless.

You don't earn a win until either the reds hit zero point, your team scores 1000 points or captures the enemy base (in standard mode,) or you sink all the enemy bots.  Until one of these conditions is met the battle goes on.  If all of the humans go back to port the game ends in a draw.

Didn't realize this resulted in a draw. Thought the bots kept fighting until the end unobserved.

They will if you don't hit escape.

So WoW thinks that a bot vs bot battle is a great idea? I hope that they buy a lot of merchandise in the armory!

I wonder if the same thing happens in Random when the MM gives us bots to even up both sides. That's a freakin' disaster in Clan Naval Battles when you're playing for BXP & a loss means you get the score cut in half.  Damage is fair. Ribbons are fun.  BXP doesn't make anyone happy. (End of Rant!)

I'm curious what your reaction would be the first time Red is up on caps, the green bots are in a position to handle what's left, you've had a monster game as the only human and gone down taking three with you... and then because Red is up on points you insta-lose anyway.

Exiting to port results in a draw.  Did you see where I said, "That's a freakin' disaster in Clan Naval Battles when you're playing for BXP & a loss means you get the score cut in half.  Damage is fair. Ribbons are fun.  BXP doesn't make anyone happy."

As for buglips question, I don't mind  a loss under those conditions.  I just wish they'd fix some of the stupid things in the game.
