Title: Any hope in getting diversified bots?
Post by: LordGek on 05 July 2018, 12:46:45 AM
Hey Gang,

Unlike many others, I'm not here to complain about the competency of the AI.  At this point, at least in most random multi-bot games, it seems adequate enough.  My current issue is that all of the bots play as IDENTICALLY as possible. I mean when I look at the decks of my 2 bot opponents, more often than not, their final decks will be nearly identical plus or minus a few cards.  What I'd love to see is just the most minor variable weighting of buy priorities so, when playing a multi-bot game, they don't feel like carbon copies of one another.  One possibility in this regard is to give the bots personalities like they had in the previous online implementation of the game, but so as to avoid being exploitable, which personality each bot uses (be it defensive, greedy, balanced, etc.) should only be revealed at the end of the game.

So any hopes for this?  I'd love to play a game vs. multiple bots where all of their end decks aren't nearly identical.

Did my dreams finally come true with this expansion?  I was playing against 2 bots in a Renaissance only game, and at game end the 2 bots had significantly different decks!

This was certainly just differences in shuffles leading to different decks, there's still only 1 bot.
