  • Units now auto-attack enemy empowering souls
  • The side AI will no longer prioritise enemy critters or souls over other enemy units
  • Skirmisher units no longer stop and “wait” when given an attack order if the route to their fallback destination was that very moment obstructed. In this situation, they will now attack if they are in range of their target

  • Improved the AI’s handling of Zombies when they have the ability to morph to Ghouls
  • The AI now uses a building's highest level to determine its construction category
  • AI no longer sends resources to allies when in Unfixed Alliances game mode

  • Limited what units Barons and Counts can pick from the Army Selection Screen
  • Dukes and higher will always try and take at least 1 general from the Army Selection Screen if it can afford it
  • Dukes won’t ever pick any more than 1 general from the Army Selection Screen

  • Fixed bug where Servile Horde would get stuck indefinitely in the AI's resource list when they couldn't research it (didn't have the perk) and would prevent them from researching all powerups for the entire battle
  • Fixed bug where unregistered powerups and buildings could make the AI think it had less assets than it actually had and in some cases lead them to only building a keep and produce builders

  • Drastically increased the speed at which the game works out what items to give AI heroes
  • Fixed bug where the AI would pay to use a weather changing spell from a building when the weather it wanted to change to was already in affect (The spell itself still wasn’t cast, so it didn’t even provoke Weatherlock)
  • Fixed bug where the AI was counting dead bodies when working out whether it should sacrifice its builder units for the Sacrifice abilities
  • No Building game modes no longer change AI levels to Rampant, but instead make them act like Rampant. This is so AI level dependent features still remain, such as the number of items they carry, response time etc…
