I'm playing an AI vs. AI game (just bought a computer that could run the game at a speed that wouldn't take longer than the real WWII to finish the game), and I happened to notice that the AI simply won't attack each other unless it's a near slam-dunk...I mean, it's the fall of 1943, and the Allies aren't even past Wewak, and aren't even trying to move troops forward to attack on that front! What gives?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Truethfully, the AI is a "learning tool". When set up in the right position, it can give you a tussel for 5-9 months (depending on how aggressively you play). But as a real opponant, it's pathatically outmatched.
Watching it play itself is like watching cars rust. Something will happen eventually...
If you've brought the AI to a halt as the Allies, and beaten your way to the full defensive peremeter as the Japanese, you're probably ready to play a real game..., PBEM. Advertise for another relative "newbie", and define how "wild and wooley" you want the game to be, then get ready for a much more interesting experiance.
I agree. Further, I'm not sure that the AI was ever made to play itself.
I have an AI game going on the side and in March 42 I have the Japanese completely on the defensive. After Halsey sunk the KB it seems that the AI has just given up....come to think of it maybe the AI is more like a real player than we give it credit for.
