Ok - I don't think that WG's latest efforts to tweak the bots have had quite the result that they had hoped.

I just had a match where I was being hammered by enemy ships. Not a problem ... Salem Zombie Heal to the rescue.

When I finally sunk the ship that I was shooting at I looked around to see that I was taking a lot of incoming fire from a bot Buffalo, the rest of the bots who'd been pounding me having died.

The hysterical part of it was that the bot Buffalo was all but surrounded by 3 ships: An Iowa, a Hindenberg and a Buffalo all of which were pouring fire into the bot. The last thing that the bot did before it was sunk? It shot OVER the Buffalo that was killing it at my Salem which had never even aimed at it.

That might have made sense if I was near death, but I wasn't.

WG ... Perhaps you need to tweak target selection on the bots, just a little bit.  That having been said, I do appreciate that you guys are trying and I thank you for the effort.

Yeah, 'moronic at times,' is about the kindest thing I can say regarding the Bot's priority targeting decision tree...

Bots make questionable targeting choices at times. In Aegis, I avoid engaging the convoy escorts at too close a range in a BB.

There can be two visible DDs right in front of their faces topping them to bits,  they don't care. They'd rather burn me down instead, no matter how many fires it takes.

I ran Warspite (great heal) with every skill, signal,  whathaveyou against fires and it was not enough.

I noticed that too. The bots are not dealing with immediate threats. That's why the human DD can run rampant because the bot CC is not shooting at the DD but instead the human CC and BB. Once the human DD kills the bot DD, then it has no problem torping the bot CC and BB that follow the DD. Stupid AI.

Just as fun is watching them simply never shoot because they keep switching between targets before they can finish training their guns :Smile_veryhappy:
