Co-Op Matchmaker Changes
In Update 0.7.0, we’ve made further enhancements to the way the matchmaker works in Co-Op . Now, you may encounter bot-operated aircraft carriers and battleships in battles even if no ships of these types are helmed by real players. The type of ship commanded by AI will depend on which type of ships is the most numerous in a particular battle.
At the same time, all standard rules of matchmaking apply:
- A team of bots will mirror a team of players in terms of setup
- There may be no more than one aircraft carrier on each team
These changes are intended to make Co-Op Battles more interesting. You will also be able to test your skills in encounters against more versatile enemy team setups.
