AI camps behind station during battle. Is this intended?
« on: August 12, 2019, 10:39:33 PM »

Massive fleet battles usually have the AI camping behind the station, no matter what ships they are using. This means the station is usually the first to be wiped out, which can in turn, be a heavy loss in terms of resources.

It seems that the AI puts a mass "Defend" order, but behind the station, instead of "on" the station. This is frankly, a ridiculous strategy. After all, if you're defending a home planet, wouldn't you want your best ships near the front and actively trying to flank the enemy? That way, the station can still do something and the enemy will be surrounded (for the time being.)
Y'know, Mojito's are pretty rad.
