When attacking a neutral territory and finding an allied presence entering that territory first (taking it earlier in the same turn), does an AI teammate have attack teammate set to true or false? Intuitively, it seems it should be set to false, but is there a way to know for sure?

As Fizzer said in [this thread](http://warlight.net/Forum/Thread.aspx?ThreadID=2489),

|>It will only attack teammates in two circumstances. First, if a bonus is entirely controlled by teammates and it has >= 50% of the territories, and it will only do attacks of 2.

|>Second, if it's expanding into a new bonus that no teammates control. I can't remember why it attacks teammates here, this might be a bug. Unfortunately though it's not a good idea to do incremental changes to the AI since it would invalidate everyone's single player scores, so fixing this will have to wait for a major AI revamp.

you can check your team mates' orders by clicking on their name and seeing their orders, mouse over the individual orders to see whether attacking team-mates is false or true (it's on false for AIs afaik)

Yes, check AI's orders ahead of time. Why couldn't I have figured that one out? Too neat and easy for me to think of. Thanks Powerneg.

And when I checked this out, sure enough I find that SOB wants to attack his teammates if they happen to get there first. As if it's not hard enough to guide the AI's with the force already...

Just be careful. Sometimes the AI seems to love attacking teammates for no reason. I have not see it in a while, but it is lurking in the background. Just waiting to strike. :)

Well I can come whit an example, since that is missing in this tread...

http://WarLight.net/MultiPlayer.aspx?GameID=2586654 Watch turn 6 and 8, it follows Segrains first point: First, if a bonus is entirely controlled by teammates and it has >= 50% of the territories, and it will only do attacks of 2.

Maybe that is why I see a "betrayer" Ai at times. :) Thank you for that Hennns.
