Better AI?
Is there any way to improve the AI? It's so predictable and fails at many things such as when the game goes on too long. I need a less predictable AI that I can play at any difficulty level.

Yes, download custom AIs from They are much stronger than the originals. Here is a link to some of the strongest oldschool and newschool AIs out there:

"This is the AI pack for the 2012 Old vs. New AI Tournament, containing some of the best AIs ever created. Here are the AIs that it contains:

ARFFI De'gel
CPS Alexander
IS Machine
Standard AI
The Dragon
The Duke
The Horde
VNS Caesar

that's great, thanks for posting the link. Is there any way of knowing the "personality" of each of this... i.e. who will rush and who will boom? just a general description would be perfect

Thanks known2own4sho.

I prefer to play AI's that don't necessarily rush but manage to play strategically after about half an hour (usually when the default AI fails). The AI needs to be able to economically stay viable in the face of diminishing resources and change the strategy as needed.

This thread is from 2013 and the standard "AI" has been replaced since then. It will also have a MUCH better late game economy than the "Original AI" (since you mentioned that) so try it out if you haven't yet. If you just want more diversity in your AI games check the workshop, there are some decent AIs there!

(RUS) Сомневаюсь в качественности AI 2012 года. Недавно купил AoE2HD, так здесь AI значительно отличается от оригинального. Я, конечно, лет 10 не играл, но раньше куда проще было. Теперь же AI научился более качественному подбору войск, отступать и воевать. К тому же новый AI значительно сильнее. Если же хочется усложнить, то достаточно против себя поставить несколько AI, выставить макс.сложность и открытую карту.
