Is the AI as smart as its programmer?: 10/8/2015 00:09:22

I hope it is not!

Otherwise its programmer could truely be called a retard. Look at this ... "GAME":

https://www.warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=9600139

After my yellow GREEK teammate just left the game without notice his AI took over. Now lets take a closer look at the AI s moves:
Turn 3: the AI begins to take Armenia. Ok .. just 2 territories for the yellow AI to complete Cappadokia or Italia Superior.
Turn 9: The AI treats me as enemy and attacks me in Gaetara (thats in Partha), even though i took that territory before the AI and thus keeps me from taking Partha bonus, btw.

Not to talk about the fact that the AI does not do the slightest thing to defend a bonus. Also see turn 9, 10, 11 and so on the AI letting gray run over it.

Now my question: who programmed this sh*t? I mean: is it really so difficult to program an AI to complete a bonus instead of beginning totally new ones that take forever to get? I dare to say: NO! Is it really so difficult to tell an AI NOT to treat teammates as enemies? I dare to say: NO! Is it really so hard to tell an AI that if an opponent is adjacent to one of its bonuses to put troops there to defend? I dare to say: NO!

The AI hasnt improved a bit since years, so my final question: Is the AI just an instrument for psychological studies to test the patience of players?

Thanks TBest. Now i am relieved you give evidence to what was just a presumption for me. But would nt it be just right that i d share the programmers income from those psychological studies as compensation for pain and suffering? But no, that would mean deceiving myself. Laboratory animal NEVER EVER get compensation.

I am one of gods' chosen and therefore worth $8,000,000,000 per yr and I DEMAND RESTITUTION FOR PAIN AND SUFFERING AS WELL AS PSYCHOLOGICAL DAMAGES INFLICTED BY THE AI. I'll be calling my lawya Ezra Goldwyn to sue the owners of this so called ''site'' to pay $300,000,000 in damages.

If you want to try and create an AI for warlight, check out this link:
http://theaigames.com/competitions/warlight-ai-challenge-2

I briefly attempted it and then decided my time was better spent elsewhere. Telling the AI to attack neighboring neutral territories is easy. Teaching it to predict what an opponent will do or guess which bonuses an opponent has completed (and which to attack) is incredibly challenging and time consuming.

The current AI is less than optimal, but, on the bright side, the quirks make beating the insane challenge feasible.

The AIs can't even use cards properly. They will discard most anything not a reinforcement card.

the AI is not as smart as its programmer because it does not adapt to the situations(settings&map) as well as humans
this is very difficult to program and even if you do program an AI to play best in lets say something like turkey local deployment,it cannot win doing the same things in rise of rome 3v3 or multiattack settings or anything that its not programmed for

I see AI attacking 1 unit with 1 unit only (0% SR) multiple times. Of course it failed and lost 1 unit, achieving nothing.

Conclusion: AI is absolutely an idiot.

the AI also misleads new players on how to fight/expand in order to win
