Good enough Jose, 60%, 50% no big deal but where I Felt the difference was
the other non AI comments were broken up into PBEM, hot seat, etc which in the long run I guess it is still 50/50 so your right. When you say not so frequent posters are you referring to Wif board game players who just happen onto this forum? From the posts I have read it seems to me outside of myself and a very few others most posters are WIF board game people.
Well, what I mean is that there is a good percentage of the forum members who are hardcore board WIF gamers, which is logical, because we (WIF gamers) are the most interested in MWIF, much more than you people who don't know the board game. I mean : which is the percentage of computer gamers who follow this forum and which the percentage of wiffers?
So, at the beginning of the survey I was astonished that the percentage of people (including me) who would play (only?) with AI was so low.
I think this was so because the most frequent visitors of the forum were us, the hardcore wif gamers. As soon as the rest of the people, who mostly only visit us from time to time (or from semester to semester) if I remember all this well, the poll started to change and the result was what we mentione.
That's why I say it's biased. If the poll had been posted in Matrix forums Main Page, proba bly the results would have been 10 to 1 in favour of AI or more.
Gee Jose I hope nobody yawns at our posts I agree with everything you said in your post, I dont remember an early poll with very few wanting an AI but if you say so then its so. I understand your desire for PBEM or hot seat because in the past it has always been comradeship of playing together in someones home drinking soda and just enjoying each others company while you play, but I am sure many times as we get older that is harder and harder to do[get together do to family commitments etc] that is where I feel a decent AI might become invaluable when you want to play and no one is available for a short period of time, could be wrong though.
