I’m all for the advanced AI and the idea of the FOB and the rats pissing me off by reinforcing my citadels and all that.
I draw the line at their ability to land directly on top of me when I warp in to a bounce on my citadel. This ability exceeds the ability of ACTUAL players, as these NPCs don’t have to launch combat probes or anything. They just warp to any point they please, without having to scan or any delay that simulates a scan.
This is an actual game-breaker for me as my home system is under siege by these OP advanced-AI rats. As such, I withold subscription on all accounts until they’ve been brought to a level that simulates actual players, or my loss has been replaced. Who wants to play against some god-like entity with unlimited ability to move in space as they please? Not me.
EDIT: AND they pod you
