I don't know if it's just me or not, but it seems like the air defense bots are more annoying than before the last update. I fly into a zone, and as usual they conduct a pass, but instead of just zooming by, they turn around and they all give chase. 

 

I don't recall them being that aggressive. Thoughts?

did you recently go up a tier?
The difference in bot behavior between tier 3 and tier 8 is gradual , but not insignificant when looked at as a whole.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...

No, I've just been playing tier5 with my clan, and they seemed to be more aggressive than in the past

They are more coordinated than before.  They seem to be able to choose the most dangerous target and focus on that target.  They will even break off an engagement to attack a higher priority target.

I guess we should feel honored.

ADAs tend to split up among several targets, but if you go into a sector alone they will pile up on you. They also never stop chasing their targets unless they leave the boundaries of the sector. The last buff they got was back when 2.0.5 released and gave standard ammo a chance to light enemies on fire, which also applied to ADAs. Aside of that I think they've only seen nerfs, Heavy ADAs in particular received a damage nerf (though they still wreck anything they can get their guns on :ohmy:)


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

AI also baits - one plane will serve as a target while letting the other def planes get into firing positions.

   It depends . If you happen to be on the predetermined team that's going to lose no matter what you do, you will find that the red aa is extra hard to kill (must shoot twice as much as the other team to kill) or the red aa work like a wolfpack  to eliminate you. While the bulk of your team is fighting to turn one sector, the other team has taken 4 sectors with ease !  Now if your on the predetermined winning team, the bots are fairly easy to dispatch, one plane can flip a sector and you can fly with ease racking up personal points. I have played for a long time and I can fight and watch what is going on in the game and other sectors. People are noticing the consistent behavior on a winning team and the consistent behavior on losing teams. An example is the other team with 2 planes left and a sector no where near them flips by itself, another one is late in the game some bots on your team just explode in mid air for no reason at all. and watch when the enemy has few planes left and they are hiding in blue area, scoring nothing but their score just keeps going up until they win, lol , this one is so obvious if you check it out. I laugh now at these things, win or lose because its so ridiculous and obvious its funny !!  hope that helped you out. Try not to fret, its happening to everyone here, well almost everyone.... lol   HAM

  Oh I left one out, the people running this site will nerf your plane where it don't handle, turns slow and your firepower does less damage especially when your on the predetermined losing team. take notice, they nerf my planes for pointing this out, when I just want undetermined games and fair play. But they try to keep you so tied up with that specialist stuff that you may not notice at first. In time you will. If not then explain why you suddenly cant seem to hit nothing and your plane will not perform..., its been manipulated by the company, believe it !   ham

No, they don't.  Learn to play, Ham.
