Sounds like they are building this one up a bit too much. A lot of games have tried to make their AI more like a human opponent but I just don't think the technology is quite there yet, especially within the confines of an MMO and the extra set of challenges they present.

They may have to try some different setups but people as a whole are pretty good at breaking down the predictable parts and trivializing anything. Within a month of the release it will be common knowledge how to solo an agent four equivalent wormhole with a tech II or III blaster Myrm, with a passive buffer tank...just look it up on Grismar's!

Well, I partly agree, but after having watched the video, the sleepers AI kind of scared me. (that and their overwhelming firepower)

It a definite improvement over current AI, and I hope it spreads to the rest of the game.


As for a passive tank against these things..... heheheh, no. For one, they switch targets, and they deal such and absurd amount of damage and appear to come in such numbers, the your tank will just melt in seconds.

The video showed a tanked domi melt in about 30sec.

Sure, maybe some tactic will come out of the woodwork to deal with them, but I don't see it working like any run-of-the-mill missioning builds.
It still going to be difficult.
