To be honest, the extreme AI is the best AI I have ever played against. Sure it is vulnerable against early agression, but late game it can produce unit non stop. The best, is that it doesn’t have huge bonus like most AI in strategy games.
Best part is that the theoretical cealing for the ai is still so much higher than its current level, especially in the very early game. A cautious gues would be that the DE AI is currently in the low 900’s on 1v1 arabia and could definatly get to 1200 and probably much higher Feel free to check out the aiscripters forum on https://forums.aiscripters.com/ or our discord channel if you wanna try other ai’s
There’s no chance the Extreme AI is under 1k. I’ll rag on it a ton for being generally bad in whatever situation you put it in but it’s solid even if underachieving. Mr. “Austrailian AOE 3 player” has shown you really don’t need to be very good in terms of tactics or execution to beat the average player, and while I wouldn’t be surprised if he could beat the Extreme AI, it’d put up a lot more of a fight than most of his placement match opponents.
AOEzone is not the average player. Practically everyone who uses the AOEzone forums came from Voobly, and Voobly practically consisted of only players who were very solid, since setting up Voobly back in HD days was more work than the casual crowd was willing to put in.
It’s generally been understood that the AOEzone crowd (formerly voobly crowd) was significantly higher level on average than the Steam playerbase and that largely holds true today.
I can, sure. I’ll scrap those two polls and replace it.
