I want to thank you for being generous with your rating, because this AI is useless. YOu'd better download tactical Ai 1.31 for a reasonable challenge.....

SeriousKiller is an AI designed to flush, but it isn't terribly good at it. It feudals at 13:00 and it attacks at 15:00, around the time a good player is in the castle age. Once it has it's archery ranges and barracks' up, it simply streams troops into your town, and you can just slice them to death with TC fire. It only castles at very late times (sometimes 22:00), and booms slowly. It is fairly weak, all up. I respect that writing an AI that flushes is a difficult chore, but it is woefully easy to beat. Simply run five villies into it's town once you reach feudal, drop some towers, and it will just run it's villies back and forth, trying to get out of the way, without really doing anything to protect them. It wastes its resources building several layers of walls, which only act as a speed hump for the battering rams of its enemies. Granted, with enough time it creates knights, but only a few. I'm not saying this AI is total crap; some would find it very useful -- but I'd be very surprised if those people wern't rooks. For a newbie, this AI should fit the bill, not too tough, but not exactly a walkover either. But if you are a reasonable player, look elsewhere.
