It's getting beyond stupid at this point.  The bots don't handle dives or complex terrain well at all and simply crash far too often.  Here I lose three bot teammates -- almost ⅓ of the team -- in about 7 seconds, just as fast as I could click through them.  It nearly cost us a battle that should have been well in hand, and sadly this is not a rare occurence.

Why are all the experienced pilots complaining so much WG.

 

Do you guys even wonder, or play this game?

I am also  playing less and less because of this game getting badder.

That particular map has a lot of badly mapped ice formations. Someone cheapled out on the terrain topography avoidance radar and erred on the side of low values instead of high. Not many of the other maps have it this bad.

 

Every time I fly on this map I try extra hard to stay alive, knowing I'm our only hope if things go south.

It's not the terrain modeling though, or at least it's not just the terrain modeling.  The first XP-58 flew into the side of the terrain from 3600m up.  He made a series of bad control decision until he had completely overflown the plane's ability to recover from that dive and flew into the terrain at 800 km/h.  

 

The next two crashed in such rapid succession that there's no telling why.

Yes sir, almost as bad as my bot HG II teammate running me over, I was well in position by 3 seconds, to kill the an enemy FJ -1. Yes I died and he got the kill. He then proceeded to go out and die 30 seconds later and we lose. They're putting in solid efforts out there:facepalm:

I am noticing quite a bit more bot vs ground engagements with this patch... unsettling.

Or they are just flying around like they are brainless beyond the scarecrow.  Flying straight and level as they get torn apart from behind.  Ground attackers taking 3 second bursts at a target, then flying 5000 ft clear across the target area  to their next target instead of aiming for the target 2000 ft away from them. I've watched them fly right into each other before we even see the enemy!

Yes...  Some are indeed clueless, waivering between targets and never committing to one or the other... Few bots are absolute surgeons, and rarely found on my team.
