Does it have any sense to have AI cars/bots in CTF games?
 
i had posed this question already another time, having had yet another ctf game ruined today by the ai-s, i'd like to reissue the question.
 
My perspective:
  • AI Cars are not coded to go for the opponents' team flag, hence they just trick real players into thinking that there is a CTF game going on, when in fact there isn't;
  • they confuse the newbies into thinking that CTF games are about killing just as team death matches.
  • they get in the way of experienced players, trying to deposit the flag, even if they are in the same team, by doing stupid forward and backward moves without exiting the teams base.
  • they can be easilly farmed by the opposing team to launch a bot attack, especially now with the shotgun.
  • i have the feeling that when there is more of them, the game lags more.
 
I'd like to see them gone from CTF games, or MAX have 1 ai bot per side.
what do you guys think?

I agree. CTF games are ruined by AI bots.

I think the fact that 80% of all games are entirely AI is crazy. It should definitely have fewer AI servers.
 
As for them in CTF games, it's pretty much a free flag. They aren't much of a threat to an experienced flier, and they don't go for or defend flags.

I agree with Yoshi,
 
I liked it at first when there were three AI games and they left as soon as someone else joined.  They served their purpose as a time filler while waiting, and I feel that is all they should do.

Let me just say I was the guy who actually suggested more AI in different game modes before, and after the CTF games I have played entirely with AI I would like to say bad idea on my part. I guess I was thinking of there being at least one player on each side to compliment the AI cars...

I was one of the people who suggest having AIs in the first place.  I didn't think they would be so many though.
 
Sidenote for prevention: Let's not have this be a bash the AI and their creator fest.  If it turns to that, I shall remove your comment.
 
Thanks, Nattyfrank
