Bots baffled by chapel/apothecary?
« on: 09 October 2017, 07:59:58 AM »
Lord Voldebot, Lord Rattington, and Revenge Witch all seems to think it was a brilliant plan to whittle their hands down to a potion and a few chapels and apothecaries and nothing else.   This left me stuck with buying almost all the Platinums, Golds, Colonies, Provinces, Hagglers, Mining Vilages, etc.

This was on game #7582286 on frankfurt.
I wound up winning 165 to 6/0/0; crazy!   ::)

Yeah, the bots aren't all that smart. I had a bot once trash his deck down to Alchemist, Potion, Chapel, and Silver. There's wasn't anything worth 2 coins other than Chapel, so he didn't buy anything for the rest of the game.

And if you want a REALLY easy game, just spam Torturer. They always discard, even if they have moat/watchtower/chapel/etc., and even if the curses are gone.

By far, the funniest thing I've seen is a bot playing Ambassador and returning 2 Provinces to the supply! :)

The developers know about the bad bots. Hopefully they fix them soon...
