I played in Early Access and, for sure, the danger level of the mobs was insane. Hyenas were the bane of my existence and god forbid an archer see you before you saw them. I remember feeling genuinely safe when I lined my base walls with archers because they actually hit their targets like they knew how to use a bow.
I recently came back and started playing on an official server. Loving a lot of the new content, for sure. Yet my archer thralls have been noticeably, dishearteningly dumbed down. They keep trying to shoot down through the edges of whatever they stand on and they rarely, rarely hit their target now (I’m talking all tiers, here). What’s worse is that this is even only when they actually decide to stop trying to run along the walls and all over the place before finally pulling out their bow and even trying to shoot at all. I was even climbing up a cliff edge (slowly) and all the archers were missing me. You have to try to suck that bad with a bow.
What happened? I even tried putting them on a wedge so they can’t move, thinking it would force the AI to rely on ranged attacks but to no avail. They either just stand there or they freak out trying to run somewhere when the enemy is right in front of them. Is anyone else having this problem? Can we get our old archer AI back?
