AI espionage

Postby heresys » Tue Apr 28, 2009 10:09 am

Can they to use this? I have seen the AI assassins on hex with my HQ for many times, but spies – never. No heroes, no units with this ability. Except the saboteurs, maybe. But they are only trying to destroy my facilities, nothing else. I’m just unlucky (lucky), or AI opponents really can’t perform espionage missions?

I've had active espionage totally screw me over. I'd imagine, like all good espionage, it sometimes happens and you don't notice.

I've never really had problems with espionage, it's the assassins which cause me endless headaches.

In my AE carrier I've only had espionage happen to me once. On the other hand I've never actually used espionage myself. It just doesn't scream "useful" to me.

I think when espionage is successful you automatically receive a message telling you all about it. I think that's what it says in the manual anyway. Can't be bothered to check right now though... meh.

Active espionage, yeah, but I'm not sure about passive.

Thanks for replies. Maybe AI can use espionage very seldom, maybe not… Anyway, best method for gathering information, both for player and for computer is the reconnaissance. So an espionage it’s just a nice addition for gameplay, I think.

I imagine espionage would be great for when you're gong for the high score of the universe. You can use it to just hamstring your opponents while you just smash everything on the map over and over.
