Shadow 4.12 Beta

Post by FireBall37 »

Here are some things to note: for now Shadow plays limited settings, including only Vikings currently. I'm designing him to be as good as possible so I'm focusing on improving his play level before expanding his scope to other civs. His basic strategy is flushing with skirms then adding in knights as flank and krushing as pocket. He is very aggressive, going for the win as quickly as possible :devil

Note: cannot cooperate as well with teammates besides Shadow yet. Work in progress! :)

Civs: Any non-meso
Tournament Civs: Vikings
Map type: Arabia-type maps
Players: Any
Other settings: the standard stuff
Basic style: Aggressive flush/krush

AI cooperation goals:
Goal 11 (Town Under Attack)
Goal 46 (Team Position - Pocket/Flank)
Goal 392 (Attacking)
Goal 420 (Identity) - Shadow uses 2048
Goals 478/479 (Position Self)

Taunts:
22: chats current target player
131: forces a krush (if sent before 60 sec)
250: chats current strategy


Feel free to test him/offer any advice on how to improve. Have fun! :D

To anyone testing Shadow: there is a super annoying problem with his deer luring where his scout randomly just stops and sits idle.
I have no idea what could be the problem :head If anyone happens to know what's wrong pls let me know!

My gues would be that it's due to the bug where up-find-remote stops working for deers on occasion. To test if this is causing the bug just do a local-total check right after the up-find-remote command and see if it finds any deer to lure when the bug occurs :)

Thanks for the tip! I redid the luring (I had based it on the Horde) and now it works fine!

Very funny AI, but has a lot of bugs. He doesn't chase deer with a scout. Sometimes it just stops developing in the feudal era. In general, there is something to work on :) My AI it has never won on any 1x1 card :) I wish you good luck in developing your AI. I tested it against Promi, it's funny, because the tactics of some skirmishers and 4 spearmen, spearmen who do not improve in theory should not win ))) :)
