Good job Epic; I see some improvement in bot AI in CTF
First off, I can once again play Orbital2 in instant action. If I drop the flag, the bot that picks it up will immediately head home to score. That's good. However, there is stilll one glitch left in Orbital2. When a bot grabs the flag and heads up one of the two side lifts, and then to the T-junction--the bot runs to the end of the health vials and then backtracks back to the crosspoint of the T-junction. Only a small distance (might be due to bot pathing) I can live with that.
I have noticed two things bot do now with the new patch that I like. First, not all the enemy bots try to find you when you have their flag. I've reached my base with the enemy flag and an enemy bot still grabs my flag. A second thing I've noticed is the bots on my team don't pile up behind me when I have the flag. Instead they find and take defensive positions behind me as I proceed to my base (more than they did before the patch). They seem a little bit smarter at CTF. Could be my imagination though. Has anyone else noticed a difference in CTF, or am I seeing things that aren't there?
how long have you been trying to find something that the patch actually improved ^^
When I was testing my vCTF map again last night, I did notice the bots suddenly seemed to be playing the game a lot better since the patch.
Well i dont see some improvement in bot ai in ctf.
I see a big improvement in bot ai in ctf and ons :up:
Hmm well the bots seems to back you up in ctf better,also better at defending,and they chase the flag carrier..

So to me it`s a big improvement imho:-)
btw it does not beat online play,but it`s better than nothing:-)
