Bots suck plain and simple 

 

Its made worse by WG's flawed MM system which tends to place higher rated players or flights at a disadvantage

 

Personally i'd rather break my flightstick on a game that places you on equal terms and lets the best players win

 

In the meantime i'm gonna practice my lawndart form when all of my bots are dead in less than 2 mins

That's not the right ideology.

 

Putting the team with the better players at a disadvantage makes the game balanced.

 

Just get around the system by being so good that the matchmaker can't compensate for it.


To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I'm saying to you.

query----how do you know who has the bot flag per game? it would be nice to have a couple of bot escorts...since human team members always leave me to die after taking ALL the bots for their personal cannon fodder.....

You do not know who has the bot flag and it should not matter.

You also do not need an escort or wing man if you fly SOLO.

You need to learn how to play smart and carry the team regardless of who is on your team or the enemy team.\

When flying SOLO your team mates are canon fodder and bait.

It is about you clearing their tails and keeping as many of them alive as you can.

NOT THEM TRYING TO KEEP YOU ALIVE.

Right now I was watching a video about Tanks Tournament and it made me think about some things.

 

 

source link: https://www.youtube....h?v=tGWA_tTy6PY

 

Im not going to bother you with my bad thoughts about differences between these 2 games of same owner. But my main question is:

 

Would be possible any WG or Persha staff with guts enough to come out and speak out and loud pointing what they really think was their mistake to this game failure or they will just stay quiet untill world forgets their huge mistake trying to erase this blur like a pissed scared child in front of his parents?

That sounds suspiciously like accepting responsibility.

This works if you are flying a high-flying aircraft. You go in anything else and you are the bait. Bots don't clear your tail like people do (good people... not average/baddies). This is one of the main reasons people only fly heavies. If I'm flying a heavy, then yes, the team is just cannon fodder. If I'm flying a low-altitude light, then I want them to be a little more than cannon fodder. They need to be smart cannon fodder and bring stuff down to me while not bringing too much down.

Yup,very frustrating when someone has 3 on his 6 and sends an SOS out but he's too high to help. Bring em down.
