I too often find, mindless Ravens losing targets, deciding not to bomb and then loitering around getting shot above enemy. I also find area atteck basically not working at all.

Maybe you can point to poor micro, but this happens too often... if i have say 10 bombers, and area attack or direct attack a series of units\blips... nearly allways a few will decide to lose targets, miss, screw up and loiter to die.

something is not right. Am i alone here?

You're going to have to point to particular times and locations in replays.

This happens to me in two occasions
1) 10 bombers get an attack order on a target. 6 bombers kill it. 4 bombers loiter around to die. The solution is to always give a return to base order after a bombing order. Making it automatic isn't good, because sometimes you actually do want them to loiter to get further orders.
2) Bombers get an attack order on a target. You lose LoS of the target a short while before the bombers get there. Bombers lose attack order, but they're still close enough to reveal the target a second later and loiter/get slaughtered instead of diving in.

Hoko yes, i will need to issue a return to base order, in case of loitering.

Also, area bombing, ive never seen work properly, those 10 bombers will ALL just loiter, bombing nothing.

GF. next time it occurs ill note time and point you to replay.

area bombing has never worked for me either, so I just don't use it
bombers behave absolutely retarded when you issue area bombing - it just makes no sense... if there is some AI here it's terribly broken

Area bombing used to work for me and i used it with Ctrl modifier to split targets automatically. This seems to no longer work.

The only problem i see is that they often loose their target for no reason...

I also had all time problems with area bombing. So i do always all bombing manually. And even then ravens sometimes are like retards and miss targets, after refueling return to first bombing place and suicide. Only iron hand can deal with air.

NOrankAdminAnarchid u sure? this must have changed very recently then (<2days), because i use it regulary with ctrl-modifier and appended return order with success...

Interesting. Perhaps this is an issue in (my) config, or elsewhere in my system.

i confirm it works as intended, dating this statement to right now.
