I note the new update has changed how the AI sets up the forces in the standard Mk. III attacks scenario. It is harder to beat now.

Yes, we've done some work on the AI. It's getting smarter... You've been warned... ;)

Now if the dice roller would get fixed. I'm still consistently getting low numbers, while the AI gets sixes on 1 to 2 hits.

One recent example. One Ogre MB and four SB, all eight AP. I got one D in seven shots. The AI takes over and gets five sixes and two fives, in ten shots at treads.

So it's accurately simulating the custom Ogre dice.

I've given up every scenario except the Mk. III attack. Example, Ogre Duel. I arrange it so I get first shot from movement. I shoot two missiles paired, so 4 to 1 odds, at three enemy SB. All are NE, repeatedly. AI Ogre moves in range, six missiles at weapons, I'm defanged in one go.

You are just consistently unlucky. I am not seeing the same thing. The dice are streaky, but even over time.

Keep sending game logs; maybe there's some weird edge case where it's broken just for you. I'm not joking about that, your environment might have something weird in it.

I got the coder who did that to run me though it and make sure the random seed was being re-set each time and it is. I'll triple check though!
