NO AI FOR SKIRMISH?
Are you ♥♥♥♥♥ serious?.. also in campaign how come i have not played against a rival dungeon master yet?.. it feels like every mission is the exact same thing.

I mean come on even a crappy game like dungeons had u pited against rival dungeon lords at times.

The AI in the game so far was specifically made for the campaign to do the many special events, such as hero invasions, so far as I know they are not doing anything of making a Skirimsh AI (I hope they do)

Although we should wait for one of the develepors to come and shed some light on this topic

GeneralKong, you more or less nailed it. The main focus of the game is Baal and Oscar trying to conquer Ardania and the game AI was specifically tailered around that. Skirmish was never intened to be a big part of Impire, since it's not a hard-core game but more of a casual, light-hearted experience. Impire has 25+ hours of SP gameplay (with hand crafted missions that don't use procedural generation) and a pretty expansive story. We could have left it there but decided that we wanted at least some form of multiplayer in there, but building a "dungeon master vs dungeon master" game was never the plan- it would have been a completely different game than the one we wanted to make. When you do a $20 game, as opposed to a $60 game, you have to choose which areas to focus on in a more strict manner and I think Impire delivers a fair bit of value for what it costs.

still i think if you made it more like dungeon master vs dungeon master it would sell better tehn now cus my multiplayer is bugged i cant even see any games online so its still bugged for me pretty stopit i bought the game to play online but well thats not gona happen i think nice game but with out the multiplayer option not worth the 20 € srry

steelswords: I dont know why you bought the game ONLY for online, but it was never announced to be online centric as most modern games are, as JoeF said, Impire is about the Singleplayer, the Story of the Rise of Baal, the next chapter in the saga of Ardania, and as JoeF said the multiplayer is currently in beta stages, and once it is finished then you will have your online, luckily im not a multiplayer person, and I love singleplayer games that dont try to be the next call of duty and concentrate on the multiplayer with the singleplayer tacked on

Now dont worry im not bashing you for only getting it for the online, different strokes for different folks and all that, but there is more to a game then its multiplayer, and I believe in the singleplayer Impire does it brilliantly, sure there are bugs here and there, but the Devs genuinly wish to make this game worth every penny, and it tells with the dialogue they have with the community here and on the paradox forums

Hi, I would like to see a DLC later on adding AI to the game for skirmish. I like the single player, but skirmish would be spot on!
