The AI is really ruining the game experience. I’m not just talking about the PVP AI, but also the general PVE system as well.
1.) Element use - What’s the point of mixing and matching your team composition when the AI hardly utilizes their elemental advantage?
2.) Inconsistent targeting - AI does not have a sense of kill shot. It’s irritating when an AI attacks an enemy until the HP<1000 and suddenly switches to a different target. There’s no logic to that.
3.) Poor skill use - Try observing an auto battle and see how a healer will not heal someone who is dying. It’s a consistent flaw.
4.) AI lag time - The AI uses cover like there’s no tomorrow even if no one is shooting at him.
5.) Non objective responsive AI - if the objective is to kill the boss with a 6-7 digits HP, why are the AI’s targeting all the other distractions? Should our progress be really limited by this stupid mechanic?
6.) Poor AI is ruining any strategic mechanics in the game - You can balance your team, but with the poor AI (and unfair matching system in PVP), you are bound to lose when 4 of your teammates are targeting toons they are not suppose to be targeting. Have you ever finished a PVP and you only killed one toon (the one you’re targeting) and all the other enemy toons have <10% HP? That’s how stupid the AI is.
7.) ALL of these limitations + Bounty = Gold rob! Imagine you need to kill a toon with millions of HP. This toon goes to three different location but you need to kill all the enemy in one location to chase the boss. It makes me wonder how I am the only one targeting the boss, yet I also have to spend 10 seconds to kill all the other mobs. It’s a kill me moment feeling.
8.) Finally, poor AI is not an excuse for game balance - This is a 5 toon team game and you can only control one toon at a time. You + 4 stupid AIs = a really frustrating experience. Although as a sense of service to the community, the AI should be stable and consistently reliable in a team based AI controlled game. BUT OK people are not paying for it. BUT since the game is also selling the auto play mode (ex. in Raids) for VIPs, they should make sure that the auto mode of the AIs is not as stupid as it is now.
