    Re: Battle AI too easy

    It's pretty amazing that we can program a computer to win at chess or go, but not to use its units effectively in a TW battle. EB battles are too easy because the AI still does the same stupid...

    2.2g auto-generate AI siege defenders

    I've been away from EB for a while. I was pretty surprised to see that it's come to this. If the AI won't garrison its cities, we'll just magically spawn a dozen plus units when the player attacks....

    AI siege bug with elephants

    The AI will attempt to capture a city with only elephants as its siege weapon. After the AI forces combat, it just sits there and does nothing. You can speed up time and let the battle run for...
  4. Poll: Re: Informal poll on played faction campaigns.

    +1

    It's just another artificial thing added to the game to compensate for the AI's appalling and irremediable lack of skill no both the campaign and battle maps.

    Re: Battles are weird

    Certainly communication must have been difficult, but any military unit acts a lot more autonomously than they do in a total war game. If a tank were going to roll over you at 1km/h you would know...

    maximum 1 assassin?

    In a Baktria campaign I have 1 assassin and I cannot recruit another because it says I have the maximum number of agents (2.2b). Is this working as intended?

    Re: Rad compares units - a thread for balancing.

    The point is that it causes the AI to use stupid tactics. Whatever algorithm it's following gives the result that it's a good idea to charge spearmen head-on with cavalry.

    Re: Rad compares units - a thread for balancing.

    The cavalry charges are probably too high globally. The AI detects this and always goes for the frontal charge with its cavalry, usually with good effect. You can charge a unit of hoplites in guard...

    AI repeatedly making the same mistake over and over again is what is silly. It's like a chess program that hangs its queen sometimes and you're telling people not to take capture the queen.
