While this idea is great for building up the AI, It is terrible if this is the solution for lack of Multiplayer.
Just my 2 cents.
Most games like this, its very hard to find a real person to play with. If this allows you to play multi player with REAL people and AI accounts (or a mix of both). Then it rocks!
I don't see the logic, if I want to play with the AI I put on computer players! So to me there is little point in AI accounts, if it is because they want to make the AI sound human, they should just implement that in the Game AI, so I can enjoy it in singleplay too (meaby as a choice), I agree on advancing AI in any direction, like making them able to answer simple posting, the biggest problem in an AI trying to chat is they have to be able to handle bad spelling, and have to have a HUGE vocabulary.
Therefore I prefer to not have AI accounts, but AI on my own computer, so I can select who should be silly. - I can agree to post in AI info to the devs on a regular basis if they want info from the AI to upgrade the version or intelligence, never minded to have automatic semi-anonymous reports to devs or companies to help increase product quality.
