do they help or hurt the game

in my Opinion it make for a less fun game  because i had a few games where player that 

i was do better then all click on my plane and then i have four bots hunting me

 i was in a five  v five match defending the air base then all  at once there five bots

and 2 player on me  kinda make get this mission do even harder

I haven't tried it yet, but was hopeful.  I have used F2 in the past to indicate to my team where I was attacking/defending and would hit F7 hoping a bot would help get someone off my tail.

 

When you are the only human on a team, I had hoped this would help the bots work more together as a team.

21 games today and not a single one I could carry to a win.

Yes there were wins, losses and draws.

In fact the draw was 2 flighted bomber pilots ( 1 was a high rated pilot ) and me in a GA versus all bots on the other side NO HUMANS I repeat NO HUMANS on the enemy team. 

I continually used the various function keys and I am sure they did too.

You want to talk about unbalanced matches and WG screwing the pooch of a game.

 

I felt like I was just spinning my wheels flying around shooting stuff for no reason.

Then getting attacked  by a bot horde with absolutely NO HELP to capture sectors.

 

I will play for a couple of more days but if the games still feel like I can't carry then I'm out and not wasting my time.

I will just wait for the Player vs Player mode.

So far, I'm crushing all opposition? I've got a 90% plus win rate today.

Controlling the bots is mad simple if you don't have someone on your team repeatedly spamming commands that cause the bots to derp-circle and do nothing. My two cents. It's far better than it was.. games are also more competitive than they were and I'm getting more one on one dog-fight time because I'm not having to scrape off or dodge the bots every 2 seconds as I am able to use my own bots to counter the enemy bots.

Basically, this is a win all the way around from -my- perspective.

I will say I also re-mapped -all- of my bot/chat commands to my 10-key as well.. easier to reach up and slap them with a thumb from my mouse than try to reach for the function keys since I have to hold the FN key down (idiot laptop keyboard)

I have mixed feelings about it so far.  This feature seems far more valuable for some aircraft types than others - for example, it's probably awesome that a lone bomber pilot can now summon a bot to come scrape someone off their tail.  But as a fighter, I find that having the bots help me take down another plane often results in them getting the kill, or me not needing their help.  I could send them to attack a sector, but often this results in them being fed into the meatgrinder for another player attacking that sector, resulting in the enemy capping that sector more quickly.  It's a mixed bag IMO.

as written, it just seemed to me that bombers would benefit most       i could be wrong       

 

Bomber Escort showed me target fixation is very hypnotic, so a flighted bot shooting from the rear as i shoot them from the front could really scratch someone's paint job

 

i could start flying bombers at lower altitudes now

Please reference many of your previous posts telling players to learn the game and get better at and then take your own advice.

Is that the best trolling you can do ?

Guess you failed reading comprehension otherwise you would not have missed this part of my post.

" I will play for a couple of more days but if the games still feel like I can't carry then I'm out and not wasting my time.

  I will just wait for the Player vs Player mode."

 

That in and of its self should have told you that I take my own advice.

Shall I highlight that one part for you ?  Yeah, I better help you out. " if the games still feel like I can't carry "

oooh, i do that       

 

i keep trying to get a better bot than i was originally assigned      i once got an SB F3 bot when i was flying a heavy

 

i'll stop doing that, it's not proving to be as helpful as i hoped

SO I decided to go back to the way I was playing the game.

Much better results.

The only thing I used before was the "F2" going to sector key and occasionally " F4 " engaging or attack key.
