    Removing the AI races definitely seems like the right call. AIs can have a place (I loved co-op bot-bashing in Super Smash Bros Melee), but in games where you really care about score, it seems like an AI is just adding a ton of hidden rules to a game that don't really pull their weight.

    I agree that overly complicated AI is not going to be a good thing until we have AI that can respond to being exploited (ie, learn), but I don't think AI in single-player is such a horrible thing, especially when it has some sort of an advantage, some randomness to it's behaviour, someway to telegraph it's intentions, and possibly some randomness to the advantage it gets.

    That being said, sounds like a sound approach for this particular mode, and I'm really looking forward to the beta.

    Yeah, I totally agree with all of you. Obviously I hope the game will be a huge success, so that we can have some awesome multiplayer/AI updates in the future.

    Can't wait for the beta to tell you how confusing it really is! :p
