My 2 main complaints

All in one shot.
The AI is stupid enough to get itself surrounded on the 19.
Then it saves itself by attacking with a PzGren, damaging it in the process.
When replacements arrive this will always lead to a gamefreeze in the replacement-phase.
(See the PzGren with blue boundary in Bitburg)
I hope both issues will be repaired in the next update.
I really like the game, so please get it working!

Thanks,
Szarpas

Hello Szarpas,

The issue is already fixed and it will be implemented in the next update. As for the AI, I know it is limited, but we can't make it too hard for the new and experienced players. If the AI is not a challenge for you anymore, we highly suggest you play the Multiplayer.

Cheers,
Alex

Hi Alex,

good to hear that the bug is fixed, thanks.
As to the issue with the AI, I seriously doubt that an AI watching for its line of supply would be harder for the newbies.
It would add to the depth of play, though.
Another thing is the instability of multiplayer games when people are using different OS. Both games I had so far froze mid-game. I will not even consider doing another mp game until I _know_ that this issue is fixed, too.
Seems, I will have to wait for the next update.

Until then,
Szarpas

Alex, are you serious? Did you really make the AI intentionally worse than you were capable of programming?

Why not make a "beginner's" AI (Monty) and a tougher AI for more serious players?

Was not the different generals the increase in gameplay?
