Playing online, do you prefer against human or AI's

Recommended Posts

I have not played online very much, but lately we have had a few games, on SH2 we play against each other, but on Crusader and Extreme we play against the AIs and support each other to the win, I like to play with supporting each other against the AIs.

 

What is your preference when playing online games?

Above all I prefer challenges, and both of those you said could be a challenge. For AI - it will be a good challenge if you set the game right - not to hard, and not to easy - just enough to survive invasions, and to be able to fight back.

I like our fights against AI lords as well, as in those games we quite often need to support each other; especially those games where we need to kill one or two AI lords to get some important resources, like Mathew and I needed in our latest game! Also, I'd like to add that that is something that cannot be seen in battles against human opponents very much - unless in that one when we played on The Wet Land, and when we were fighting for iron. In fact, Charles team was fighting for iron, and they were exploiting it, while Alex and me fought to drive them away from those mines, as we didn't want them to grow stronger.

 

Still, fighting against human opponents can be really interesting - more interesting than fighting against AI lords, and human opponents can change their tactics, and they also defend and attack smarter than AI lords do.

 

Whatever game type I choose of those two, I would be having a lot of fun, and in both of those two - thanks to the fact, that you can cooperate with human ally really well, and also, when human is your opponent, he is able to turn the war just like that, which makes the game even more exciting!

How does it work when you play teams against teams do people support or do their own thing?

 

Chris Mathew and I played an SH2 game, those two started to fight each other after we all got to Duke and I was left on my own, after waiting for a while I decided to attack Mathew with a small force, but I should have supported him and attacked Chris as he is the better player, the game probably would have been more fun.

 

I must say that I do enjoy making scenario maps the best though, but online is fun, a bit more stress than I like but still fun!

It depends of players you play with. Some players are team workers, while some only look after themselves. Mostly that is not the case - mostly team mates help each other, by sending each other needed resources - especially food if it's needed, they work together when attacking, and if you besiege one of them, the other would come, and try to help him attacking your invading troops. Still, I have to admit - sometimes I was deciding to attack alone rather than waiting for my ally to join me in attack. In those situations they would tell me "pls, wait, we will attack together", but if I see that the enemy is growing stronger, I try to attack on my own, so I would at least weaken him, or not let him grow strong as would like to. :) Still, we would perform the next attack together, of course; and all that - if we are in position to attack, if we are not in position to save our lives. :)

 

Playing against human lords can be really interesting, and sometimes, human players can really surprise you, which is really great! I'm sad how Charles is not able to play with us, as he used to be - games with him were really fun. He tends to build a small castle, and a small economy (smaller than mine), but he was using those resources in pretty good way. In a multiplayer game with him you would see the best parts of playing games with humans. :)

    • Ai-aided Historical Castle for Human Player

      Just got a new idea for a map. I could design a new AI that is allied to the human player, that does not produce any units but rather builds a historical castle for a human player. The human player is not allowed to place any walls, towers, or gatehouses. This means that the human player is *forced* to play from behind the confines of a historical castle. This would make historical castle skirmish scenarios possible. What do you think of this idea?

    • Still playing Gaming Events?

      You guys still playing CTF? I'd love to join a team who plays on a regular basis. Doesn't matter if it's just to goof around. I just love CTF and sadly the people who I played with for ages moved on to other stuff.

    • Online gaming with mobile hotsopt

      I?ve been digging around for a while now and I?ve read that you can actually play online games with no problem on mobile hotsopt if you use a third windows device to connect the mobile hotspot to and then running a LAN cable to the game device. I?ve did this and had no luck.? Any sort of help is really appreciated.

    • an online store for PC's, laptops, tablets, etc..

      Hey, guys!   I believe Mathew was speaking about these things before, but I can't find that right now. It was about buying PC's online. Now I wish to try that with a tablet. It would be for my girlfriend. The thing is that we don't have a huge choice of them in our city, so after trying to buy few other things online I taught I could also try this - perhaps I could find more easily a suiting tablet for her this way.   Can you say if there are stores like that, and if you could tell some of them?
