Again today im torped by friendly bot in Co-op, once again it wasn't because I ran in front, he was way to the rear while a couple of us were engaging an enemy. Ok I can accept the odd stupid bot issue. What annoys me is that when I have to pay over 40k for damage and the bot/game mechanic pays me 18k ..  I went from full health to maybe 200 hp .. the maths don't add up here. The economy is not working ...

They are not bots on your team, the bots are only on the enemy team (although I have not played high tier co-op so I havn't seen them use bots on friendly team to fill in the numbers)

As for the economy you get on average 3x xp and silver by playing PvP. but once you pass tier 6 (standard account) you may well make a loss in a battle, this is to keep players playing their lower tier ships so the population doesn't all end up playing only high tier. So economy is working as intended.

As a guide WG tend to make the tier 5 ships/planes/tanks the most profitable for making credits, or they have their premium ships which also make more and have cheaper repair bill.

I don't know why they don't just turn friendly fire off. It'd solve the TKing situation, and there wouldn't be any fines for Team Damage.

Before anyone gives me the historical bullshit, look at the amount of blueprint tanks in WoT, and the upgrades for them. Historical my ass.

Uh, it was a Cylon captain, not a bot. They have a plan. :sceptic:

Once you hit 1 minute 30 seconds in the co-op queue, MM puts bots on the allied team to fill in the empty spaces if there aren't enough real players in the MM queue. You might sometimes see this happening at the dead of the night at 4am.

Was definitely a "friendly" bot, in fact I have had a couple games where I was the only non-bot ... but that aside, my point is if you take 35K credits friendly damage you should get paid 35k credits .. getting nearly 40k credits of friendly damage and being paid 18 k ... not so good.    I get nervous around anything with torpedus now ...

why would you even bother playing co-op lmao

 

umm because after closed beta the game became a  lemming train and MM kept putting 2 carriers into tier 4 matches where nobody had AA ..  easier on my brain to step back and relax while still enjoying the game..

Yes ... correct

 

Im not sure anyone is getting the actual point im making ... taking 40k credits  of damage from a friendly and being reimbursed 18k credits   ... how about if you loaned me 40 dollars and I repaid 18  dollars ..that's kinda the maths im talking about ... can't be that hard to compensate friendly damage accurately
