Does AI Cheat? ANSWERED

Post by COOLguy » Tue Dec 30, 2014 12:30 am

I was wondering, does the AI abide by fog of war, or can it see everything?

Sometimes it seems like it can sniff out my sneak attacks, but maybe it just gets lucky... like, every time. :P
Thanks!
Josh

ah, but if you notice, the AI has a range limit, so when you get a map where they have 50 knights and you send a single horse archer around them, only bits and pieces move. If you can take that into account, you can outmaneuver them hehehe, we are too op yep :P

So the answer to the initial question in this thread is "yes, the AI cheats like hell!!!" .
It's better to keep your mouth shut and let people wonder if you're a fool than to open it and remove all doubt...

Unless it got recently changed, AI can also use upgrades even when the match is a no-upgrades game. It only cares about its easy/hard setting and it defaults to "hard" (= use upgrades) when it replaces a player in MP game.

The ai always has and probably always will cheat. I just think it needs a higher setting with more cheating added (like extra production or something)

I can't believe what i'm hearing! The AI cheats, why is this okay!? If a player cheats it called hacking! We need to fix that.

The only problem to mad rush ai for me is that they regardless of settings have all upgrades from TC.
All other Current so-called "cheats" don't matter.

Exactly.
Unless they have a huge amount of heavy catapults somewhere in one very hard to get place.

Right.
The day they'll learn to use wagons as well as they'll learn to build siege and wagons with workers they'll become a real threat.

It is usually good to see AI improving, it makes the game better.

actually not improving, it as just luck, they can accidentally step into ground-transport without intention. only water transtports are programmed to use intentionally

XD lol, beware they r already using armies of invincible workers to wreak havoc

i suggest (if its possible) once guard towers and factories have been built by the worker, it will start building sieges in the closest available tile, if tile is forest then they build siege mantlets, if tile is plain then first priority is battering rams, once they have 1 or 2 surviving rams they start building catapults, and they continue until they have 1 or no rams remaining, at which case they shall again start building rams, even a siege mantlet is a better choice than ai sending workers to their doom after job is done
