AI's method of retreat is not the most intelligent
« on: January 30, 2017, 04:34:34 AM »

It would be nice if the AI was smarter about retreating; currently it just turns towards the edge of the map and tries to run for it, even if it has front shields... leading to retreat often being a worse idea than telling it to "defend" a point at the far end of the map.

Hi! There was a bit of a discussion about it here; the short version is "retreat" will be more defensive in the next release, while a "direct retreat" command will produce the same behavior that retreat does now.

Sounds good to me! Even more to look forward to in 0.8. :)
