Лишь потому, что практически все их более-менее адекватные ММО сделаны на основе популярных JRPG-серий.
One of the most hotly debated topics in the community since The Engineers (2.1) launched last week were, the AI and NPC changes. The aim of these changes were to ensure that there is a balance for new and veteran players, having behaviour that enhances the challenge for all in an enjoyable way. We didn’t hit that balance, because of some bugs and a number of other reasons.
We were able to quickly remove almost all Engineers upgrades from the NPCs in game, which removed the worst symptoms and gave us time to investigate the problem – it turns out that a networking issue inadvertently gave NPC AIs a loophole, which they ruthless exploited, to merge weapon stats and abilities creating never before seen, devastatingly effective, Engineers-enhanced weaponry. How very sci-fi…
Fortunately for all of us, our dev team won this particular battle for humanity’s future. The AI in-game is still the enhanced version, and we released the fix for the networking issue in today’s 2.1.2 point update. We expect the intended, improved behaviours to become more evident – please rest assured that we will be keeping a VERY close eye on this to make sure it works as intended.
