Potential AI Wrong Setting?

Region: [Here]


I think the current AI setting(or at least what AI is doing) that there would be only 4 npc at most attacking the player. This also means that if there are more than 4 fighter/archer thralls protecting your craft area, at most you’ll only have 4 actually defend your base.

I tested with the devotee. There are 15 devotee at the vocalno. They all tried to chase me. but even I just stand among them, only four of them will actually attack me, others just watching. And when I killed one of the 4, there will be another one coming up to attack.

I think this could because of the recent patch that tried to make the code/the game more effcient. And the programmer just broke the code or didn’t test it after the revision.

Please look into this and fix it.

Hi. This has always been a thing in the game, not something that has recently started.

When I first noticed this, only 4 of my army of thralls were attacking a rhino which was hitting my base.

I came to the conclusion that this is intended so as to prevent the thralls from hitting each other and killing each other. If too many were to gather around a small target, they would cause more damage to each other than the target.

It is a shame as more fighters would destroy the threat quicker.

Another observation (which I like) is that as your thrall takes damage, they will step back and allow a fresh thrall to take over. This is a good mechanic, just not working perfectly, but still very good behaviour.

Ahh that why! Thank you for the reply. It seems like a nice system actually.
