Content

That missing Lannarg seed icon.. Took me a moment to find that thing. Also, Derek if you use Blessing of Restoration on Shirayne, her heal in tactical combat does not actually do anything. It just says it heals the target for %d.

yeah it was ridiculus when my party of 3 champs was defeated by a lone darkling shaman spamming shrink.  Everyone was shrinked before engaging him in combat and some double shrinked....

Oh whatever old man, whatever, your AI gets to complete quests instantly without visiting subsequent quest locations!

If your forums had a cheese emoti, I would be spamming you with it right now. In the absense of such, I am forced to turn to GIS.

I agree. With AI players getting quests completed automatically and stomping the map with quest reward dragons as early as on level 3, it's a big issue.

Well the AI doesn't get to complete quests automatically. They simulate the quest (rolling the dice) and they aren't allowed to go on tons of quests like you humans are! And they don't get to save games.  What you're seeing is the tirene taking out a battleship roll.

Blame old man Paxton for letting the AI go get dragons from quests or what have you. XML controls whether the AI is allowed to go on quests. I just take advantage of whatever cheese I can find.

If I had my way, in v1.1, when the human wins a big battle, the game reloads from the turn before so that the AI can get another crack at it!

Perhaps the AI needs to be more considerate of the actual difficulty of quests though? It shouldn't just be true/false switch if the AI can pick it up.

Since we're on the topic of AI cheese, is it just me or does the AI recruit any champion it finds regardless of tech required?

Quoting Heavenfall,
Perhaps the AI needs to be more considerate of the actual difficulty of quests though? It shouldn't just be true/false switch if the AI can pick it up.

Maybe if the AI was required to be in an army within at least one below the level of the quest. So a weak AI army could attempt a weak or medium quest. A medium AI army could attempt up to a strong quest, etc.

Hmmm... the quest that gives a dragon is already set as not being doable by the AI.  It is is doing it, thats a bug.  Looking at the code the logic looks good to me (ai is checking to see if its doable).  I'll get a dev to check it out, must be failing at another layer.

Maybe it's failing at the cheese layer? Gotta remove that layer!

I wish that would happen.   That would be awesome.   At least a popup that would say:  "Please wait, magnar is reloading to turn 247".
