Lux Alliance bots/AI:s Online

Post by Pars » Thu Jan 21, 2016 12:37 pm

I have been playing alot online lately, mostly short turns (1,5-2 min) games.
I have started to inform in the forum when I play online so others can participate.
Dustin joined me one game and yesterday Bean joined me for 2 games.
Playing online has made me realize a problem that needs attention, which is the Easy bots/AI:s

About the bots/AI:s
The only one of the Easy bots that you can have in your team and actully have a chance of winning with is Agro, the other three, Angry, Bubbles and Quirky are really stupid. Lets say that we are 3 ppl playing online, a 2v2 map. 2 humans get into the same team and the last human ends up with Bubbles...
It's not fair and not even fun regardless of which team you end up in.

To get one of the "stupid three" in your team is like waving the white flag, you might as well give up.
Would not it be better if we could exclude the Easy bots in online games?

I know that you did something about this, but have I an question about this.

Recently I was in the KWIK room while Mike was playing against a bot in 1v1 map.
The bot was Agro.

I thought you removed the easy bots from online games, but I'm thinking that perhaps the change is only when there are several humans playing or that the change did not follow with Beta 142?
