To be fair, its always worth sticking around in a match to watch when this happens because its usually hilarious as they fail to do anything effectively.

And yes, I know what you really meant.

I am terrified at the concept of how you managed to ascertain the humidity level...

 

But thanks for the weekly update! :great:

Last night my side was massively ahead on points and had four caps. We lost due to the last plane on our side being a bot.  Instead of trying to evade and hide, this bot decided to lose the game a charge into the middle of the last enemy cap.....and die.  We all watched this unfold and we all groaned.  OMG!

I had a pair of humans do that last night so... not a huge improvement

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

Yup saw it last night to bots just milling around do very little when opposition was hammering the cap we captured. I am sure real players or pilots will mill around to lol.

Yeah, it was quite the surprise the first time a bot GA turned to head on me and opened fire. They try to ram you in head-ons now too. They won't pursue a target though, the instant you clear their guns, they go back to ground pounding. I noticed the change they made to the bombs too. The other night I was lined up behind a bot GA to shoot him down and got too close when he bombed a ground target. Whoopsie, guess it's time to be more careful about bomb kills too.

i requested to devs a few months ago that GA bots should take pot shots at enemy planes that crossed their paths, so devs do seem to listen 

 

because it was just ridiculous that i could safely fly right in front of any GA bot

 

privately, i worry that distractible GA bots would noticeably slow down capping, but who really knows...

 

1.  gold bombs

2.  bloodthirsty GA bots

 

i'm two for two!   blame me or thank me... your call

If you managed to get rammed by GAA, you really need to improve your flying. But apart from that yes, GAA seems to be shooting at planes, including other GAA occasionally, which is a great change.The downside seems to be that they sometimes try to maneuver to get a shot at you and don't quite make it. Had few suicides when I arrived at point with my 329 and enemy GAA mysteriously crashed, possibly because it was trying to do some combat move.

Smart enough to use those forward-firing guns on something other than ground targets, too dumb to know their own stall speed. Heaven help us.

Might be that, actually. Or the scripts for aerial combat are not optimized for low-altitude slug porn around buildings and other non-terrain objects.

Definitely lots of changes to the Bots.

 

They will help more according to their role! Other than that, what negative issues are you facing that you would like to see changed?
