Was curious how the ai is in this game? I don't always have the ability to commit to play PBEM games so is the ai worth playing against? Or is it strictly a PBEM-level game.

For all the work Gary put into the AI we sure hope it's not just a PBEM game. The AI is not as smart or tricky as a human player, but it should put up a good fight, especially if you give it a little help. I would bet that nearly 75% of the players are only playing it against the AI.

AI is competent. As with any AI, you can learn things about it and game the system but it takes effort to do so. The great news is, people are finding exploits or shortcomings and reporting it here. The devs are doing a bang up job addressing the issues.

I'm honestly impressed with the strength of the AI, especially when using the EF box.

We must be playing 2 different games! Ive been playing the latest beta version and none of the bugs have been fixed. If you play against Ally AI, the AI will invade Normandy and Southern France on the same turn! Then it decides to pull out of Southern France.
(saw a message during Southern invasion something like: lacking available shipping)
The game is pretty much over after that: the Germans know there will be no other invasion for a long time...
Secondly, Ive heard of people exploiting the Garrison VP rules: that if you invade Southern France and then pull out, The Germans cant meet Garrison requirements and loss a ton of VPs and lose the game.
Maybe they are connected???????
However you want to look at it--there is no playable game playing German vs AI!
On the other hand, playing the Allies against a German AI, is pretty challenging.

That's a known bug in the D-Day scenario (and only that 1 scenario) that was fixed in the public beta released today. Please try it out and let us know how it does.

We have a version in test that deals with some of the snap back of garrison values after a pull out as well.
