View Full Version : Enemy AI Not Doing Their Job??
03-23-2007, 03:43 PM
I seem to have great skill, or the enemy AI just sucks. I almost never get attacked. I snuck up on a convoy in a storm, took out two cruisers and a aircraft carrier and the enemy never fired a shot! They had destroyers all over the place and never searched me out, dropped a depth charge, nothing!
I also can sail into a port, destroy all of the ships there and leave without any other ships or planes attacking me!
If I am just skilled thats great, but I doubt it! Am I missing a setting in the options to turn on AI? I have the new patch, doesnt seem to matter!
Help!! Like the game, but would like it to be more challenging, the thrill of the hunt and being the hunted!
OH! and where are the enemy subs?? I can go to Tokyo port, nuke ships and noone seems to care! I want some sub on sub action!

There are no enemy subs.
Don't know what to tell you about the AI. I've seen a bunch of reports on these forums alluding to complete apathy on the part of escorts.
The destroyers I've encountered have been more than willing to try and depth charge me.

I had planes attacking me every 6 minutes near Honduo, I saw no carrier in sight. They just seem to spawn from no where...wish the AI didn't attack me then http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

Ive had the same problem.
Ive had a photo recon mission on Tokyo harbour and while sailing into the bay i had a look at Yokosuka harbour and to my amazement, there was a aircraft carrier, battleship, heavy cruiser, gunboat, subchaser and a MIDGET submarine(wish i took a screen shot now).
I approached at periscope in very shallow water and engaged and sunk the aircraft carrier, battleship and heavy cruiser. Then a destroyer and a gunboat were heading for me at full speed. I thought thats it im done for now but no, they dropped depth charges about 100m away and pinging me to death in broad daylight and circled before stopping near the piers lol.
I managed too not only escape but also sink 3 merchants in Tokyo harbour as well.
Yes I too, think the AI needs some tweaking.

1.1 , I surfaced and was sitting on the surface must have been some light fog, I was 3500meters off a passenger carriers stern and there were 2 DD on her starboard. When my deck gun shells started to hit her, there searchlights went on the I could see them scanning the water around them, one shell was fired at me when I started but that was it. I fired about 15 shells into her to finish off what 5 torps couldn't do.
At no time did the DD come anywhere near me.

I don't know about you but I've been sunk!

I'm not exactly sure if this is true, but...
I've noticed the same thing, dd's that will approach, but no depth charges etc.
But if I start a career on VERY HARD level then the dd's are ruthless. I've had 2 of them work together to find me with spotlights/sonar, pin me, and blow the **** out of me. Bombers also actually hit me now. (Very well too) If I start a career in NORMAL then they don't do squat against me.
I play with 100% realism so setting the level to VERY HARD isn't an issue as this sets your realism to 100%. But you can still change the realism settings after starting the career while maintaining the high skill level. The skill level you choose when starting a career seems to set the AI intelligence and it sets realism settings to coincide with your difficulty choice as a reference. It's not just for realism settings alone.
Now this is just what "I think" based on what I've seen and done so don't sink me if I'm wrong. God knows the Japs do it enough.
Hope this helps

I might have spoken too soon.
I have jsut been promoted to a Gato class and apparently the AI likes me a bit more now. I am constantly bombarded by planes now. They are relentless, perhaps a little too much in my opinion.
The destroyers still seem to be a bit weak in the attack, but the planes keep me waay too busy.
Wondering if the higher renown is what is driving the AI attacks. Got me!

Why not put the Narwhal in then?
