Sniper VS Shotgun

Post#1 » 29 Nov 2016, 11:33

I decided to try my hand at fixing my AI on Seven Wonders and Circle of Death. Biggest issue I have on Seven Wonders is combatting shotgun bots using only snipers. This is what I came up with...

It doesn't work every time, depending on the AI of course. But I planned it using a very basic rush AI mostly focused on shotgunners attacking from short range only. Either way, it's fun to see it in action.

It's fun when the Shotguns gets "trapped" like that.

Sniper beats Shotgun in Seven Wonders, Split Team and Set Your Priorities.

Split team is the toughest to do that, but after you get the AI right, it's a sure win against 5 Shotguns.

In 7 wonders it's even easier than Split Team, you don't move your Snipers before you killed both Shotguns in the middle, then you start fleeing. The 2 remaining Shotguns will only follow 2 Snipers while the other 2 kill them.

Sadly it is the only way to defend against certain bot formations to use individualized AI´s for the same bot type. :cry:

But well done!

U r luky in my ai the sniper on center don't move, wait shoutgun then move (they keep the shotgun) the other go out medium range then kill the shitguns.

With most shotgun ai u lost, u need go out medium range

I haven't gotten around to really getting on my laptop to try and face your with my shotgun rush, but have you tested your formation against a shotgun rush that moves towards your base instead of moving towards the snipers? Because I'm almost certain that is the hardest shotgun rush to counter with all snipers

Also, my pushbot strategy just beat you

mcompany, you improved the idea of conscious one and I'm too lazy to adjust my AI to face you. Mi!

yeah mcompany, I saw that... you and consious both beat me with it back to back. I haven't spent much time editing my AIs at all. I just decided to start from scratch and focus on those two maps yesterday. The AI is barely a day old and there is much room for improvement.
