I just achieved the goal that was the reason I started playing WOWS. I unlocked and bought the Yamato. Yes she does not disappoint. Only my second T10 apart from the Grozovoi. Kicking around in co-op just to get a feel for her and get comfortable playing her in all situations.

 

Just now in co-op. Had a Henry IV launch torps straight at me, easily 90+ degrees away from the launch path needed to hit Montana, the only surving enemy. Close range so nothing I can do, I take all 3 on the nose and flood. I get a 40k shot off against Montana but I'm already low HP, damage control is 17 secs away and despite healing, the flooding wins and I die. Henry stay broadside and gets deleted by Montana's next shot and we lose. :Smile_amazed:

Maybe the bots are programmed to be aggressive kill stealers. I dunno. :Smile-_tongue: Seriously though why have the game mode if it so broken? This isn't the 1st or even the 150th time I have seen this nonsense or something else completely absurd related to bot A.I. Just the first that it has directly cost me a game.

Also there are reports of the current operation Hermes being bugged as the Rouan French BB you are escorting has a tendency to run aground and cannot grasp reversing and correcting its course. You lose the operation every time this happens. I personally have had it happen once already in only 5 play throughs.

WG any chance of improving bot A.I for the extremely popular co-op and operations mode? Maybe before the next dozen overpriced premium ships come out. Not to mention the huge game performance FPS drop and screen freezes with the current 072 patch. Getting people to buy prem ships etc... and play the game is obviously way more important than the game actually working properly. :Smile_facepalm:

So what your saying is that WG should change/fix bot AI so you don't lose Co-op games.....

Perhaps in Hermes someone coded the wrong response for the wrong ship types?

 

I say this because while the bb may run aground to avoid allies the cruisers won't give way to anything. They are constantly forcing either a ram or evasive maneuvers (in a bb). Have lost a couple of scenarios due to their hindrance.

Funny post mate. Made me laugh. :Smile_teethhappy: I think you missed the point of my post so I fixed it for you.

Honestly though as someone who plays lots of co-op I'm sure you have had this happen to you or seen it in battle. Sometimes you can evade the torps sometimes you can't. I couldn't care less if I win or lose a battle in a computer game. I just want to have a better playing experience for all who use the co-op and operations mode.

This bug didn't exist way back, it has been introduced recently. This is a well know issue on the forums and you tube, plus I read somewhere before Christmas that WG were aware of this torp bug, yet still nothing has been done to fix it.

I have seen a wayward torp launch in one game, but I haven’t seen one since. I did lodge a ticket/replay for that. 

I guess maybe lodge a bug report for it as well. If they get enough of them, I’m sure WG will take notice of it and fix it....

I did post it in the bug report section so we will see what the reply is.
