View Full Version : AI bots in duels

I can imagine that this has been brought up before.

I'm not the most skilled player, but I played the Berzerker since the start, I got him to mt first reputation and then some levels past that.

So I do know my moves in and out, I know how to block, to parry etc.

I have never, in the entire time i've played beta, won a duel against an AI.

I have never raged so hard at a video game before...and I seriously hate this aspect of the game..

Bless, after a while you will find bots are fairly easy, I find some people are way harder to beat than any non cheating AI, sometimes I will throw myself into a 1v3 or 1v4 situation to see how I fair out, I do find I play differently vs a bot than I do people, although there is one bot that's my nemesis but that's down to my playstyle.

I just tire them out. Once they get exhausted I do my usual flurries until they recharge, then I perma-block everything. Rinse-repeat. It helps that I'm a warden and not a specialist like the Peacekeeper or berserker, who can't.

So your mad that there is AI?

Go to practice mode, not custom match and fight against a level 2 bot. This will pit you against an AI with no rounds and re-spawn both you and the bot upon death. This is a fast way of learning the art of combat. Make it a goal to take down just that 1, then see how many you can take down consecutively before dying. Once you feel comfortable enough then go face off against a level 3 bot. These bots are better than some human players. If you can hold your own against them, you should be ready for war!

Hope this was helpful good luck

So your complaint is that the bots are better at the game than you are? if anything this is a point in Ubisoft's favor for doing a good job on the AI. Get better and you'll be able to beat the bots

Lvl 2 bots are a fairly good fight for myself. Lvl 3 however are just a huge painful experience XD Cant beat them but I know I still have room to improve. Just cant win against something that knows your move as soon as I enter it.

Once you can beat level 3 bots your ready for anyone

Dont spam heavies. Block their combos until they are out of stamina and then assault them with your own combos. The bots were not that challenging at all. Especially the Raider AI. Easy Mode.

you'll find there are certain things that just work well against ais and there are some things taht do not

for instance lvl 2 bots will not suffer from guard breaks, so don't even bother trying

however if you're far enough back they'll take a top heavy lunge to the face from a peacekeeper 10/10 times

just find something tha tworks and exploit it. they lack the reasoning skill to be able to adapt to imposed demands

Yeah. All I did was forced them to be near cliffs, rivers etc and throw them off for easy wins. Quite hilarious actually. On maps without that, the running out of stamina trick is effective.

I mainly used bots to test my reflexes when it came to blocking and countering GB's. Early on I practiced drawing them toward ledges to get my throw offs better, but mainly played on lvl3 difficulty to become more decisive in close quarters, this will normally be the difference between life and death in Dominion. I also did lots of 1v2 practice against bots to learn to maneuver better in those situations, definitely helped my situational awareness to where challenging me 1 on 1 in Dominion meant certain death to my opponent.
