If this isn't proof bots are dumb as a box of rocks and decide the battle for you, I don't know what is.

The enemy bots may have a booster because you are up tiered.  I think the same thing happens when there is a flight on one side, but not the other.

 

Replay available?

Judging by the bot scores, I would guess that one of your GA screwed up attacking a factory or something which set your team back pretty early.  If the other player flew over and interrupted, then you're playing catch up the rest of the game.

 

Anyways, this is why I don't like playing LF.  Great at taking/defending airstrip caps, but not much flexibility otherwise.

this happens every nite to me in my t9 or t10 ground attack last nite 18900cp and lost lol capped 4 sec and still lost bots couldnt keep them

seems to happen more to lf cause kills seem to get big scores but if the rest of your team didnt team up you lose

 

say once a 13000cp and 12000cp game but a platoon cause they lost and left me alone in my ground attack and i kept capping bases as they just shot stuff down in the middle 

you have to cap and keep them capped to win

Very impressive, Toggle!  You've got quite the handle on that bird. :great::medal:

 

It's sad how poorly they've coded their attempts to "make the game fair". But, don't worry... we have whales now. :facepalm:

And exactly how much of a booster is warranted?

Not exactly sure, but could be the difference of a few planes dying at the wrong moment.  Need replay to see the actual battle.  + you're a Drac, so, they may have an extra booster for that as well.

Pre 2.0, I recall reading somewhere that if there was a flight on one team but not the second, the second team would get an extra Veteran skill bot, whereas the skill levels would normally be mirrored for each team.

I hear you.  CONSTANTLY getting 15+ kills and solo taking positions but bots screwing me over.   Had a 23 kill game yesterday where the other teams top pilot had 8 and we still lost.   Great goddamn game design.

its all not about killing planes you have to know when to help stop the capping and or go to another cap and lf are useless at mining caps unless already taken 

people need to learn that in 2.0 its not all about kills, if you want kills kill the ga that is your best bet you stop the capping and get their  pts double win 

as i said before i have seen double 15kcp on a team and see them lose cause those cp were at the wrong spot

trust me, he knows exactly when to change tactics

 

when flighted together, he's always herding me around the map like a schoolmarm, just when i want to shoot things right in front of me

 

"we gotta go there"    "we gotta do this"    "stop picking at that"      his in-game nick should be Mr. Bossypants

 

but seriously... i learn fine detailed, high-level strategies from him every time we fly together, then promptly forget it all by the next battle

 

 

i can tell that he gets frustrated...  he earns every penny that i pay him for my flying lessons

 

if he wasn't married to my sister...

1 player can not consistently win a team game if that player doesn't try to work with the team he/she has.  I mean that just because you had an amazing game doesn't ensure your win if you don't actually try to win, and yes those two things can be different.  It happens all the time in WoT, players will camp, sit, bot, idle, whatever and yield the map and their teammates' lives to the enemy then do a 3-4k damage game and lose.  Why?  Because they only care about the numbers, not about the win.

Keep your head on the swivel.

You must know the game is broke when:

You HAVE TO give away tons of planes (premium included)
Fps lows without a (don t needed) significant increase of graphic quality
Population is descendig
Veterans flew away
Noobs are crying
Experimented pilots are furious.

Bots decide who wins

This happens when you are stuck in one base, while your enemies are flying over other bases and making you leave like a fool.

The complete unpredictability of the bots can be frustrating but that goes both ways.  The guy on the other side is probably just as frustrated.  For example, a couple of days ago I had two battles back-to-back in my bomber.  In the first we won, my gunner shot down 2 and I took out 10 targets.  I would normally expect to place in the top three with those results.  I came in at 7 behind 6 bots!  So the next battle again we won my gunner got 2 but I only managed a miserable 5 targets.  I came in first place!  Go figure.

  Basically stuck between a rock and a crack pipe.  This was it, in a nutshell.
