psst, got a secret... you could wait until they are almost finished or seriously getting hammered to jump them. A little patience helps since the NPCs can make killing your target even easier!! Please don't tell anyone else this little secret!!

Yes your PvE target is the NPC's enemy
Yes your PvE target is your enemy.
No, the enemy of your enemy is not your friend, the enemy of your enemy is also your enemy.


The AI does not view you as a brave and fearless rescuer there to save the day.
The AI correctly views you as an additional threat.






Solution:
Fit a proper tank
or take a bigger ship
or both.

The ship you are engaging has a prodictable dmg type

The ship you are attacking has no point

The ship your are attacking has no web

The ship you are attacking has prodictable resistence

The dmg the player does, and the dmg the rats do is mostly the same (hint).


And please, do not refere to what you do as pvp. You are the true carebear of eve..... really. People take more risk runing loot to jita than what you do.

If CCP would approve that i'll throw away those barges and fit PVE tank ship with some PVP all dps ships. So i'll oneshot every npc that come when they would try out fatty. So i could farm so much iskies! it's pointless.

Guys, stop whinning, the AI IS GOOD, AI SHOULD destroy ANY easy-to-kill ship if he dare to enter battlefield.

I saw no person that kills tanks before dpsers, why NPC should? Why NPC should be as dumb as uber-pvp pilot camping undock?
Actually i like current AI system, it should not be touched, fix drone hp or tracking, etc - AI IS IDEAL.
AI should destroy high dps low tank target first.

It's has nothing to do with the aggro/targeting algorithm not being able to handle pvp situations correctly, it's because the little red cross on the screen is afraid of your big dangerous space ship.

I'm a relatively respectable citizen. Multiple felon perhaps, but certainly not dangerous.

Humm you think it's good so we are all "whining" ok thats sorted then.

Just because you think it's good doesn't really mean it is, does it?

(bad analogy alert) I'm sure Pol Pot thought it was a great idea to go to year zero but I'm sure you will find other people didn't think it was that great.

Personally I find the new A.I pretty crap if I'm honest, it adds nothing to my experience of playing apart from things as usual take longer to do. I'm here to enjoy myself not get frustrated because something is taking me 15 minutes instead of 5.

Is this a whine? maybe but personally I think of it as just my opinion.
