I'm playing an infantry war right now: 7 mental AI vs me, on Maelstorm (2-8). I'm Epsilon Psicorps, the AIs are Soviet Confederation / China.
The kill count after 15 mins:

and the perimeter defense:

All I lost so far was 8 dogs and 2 gattling cannons - a "few" (about a dozen) Crazy Ivans nearly breached my base early game. I spammed dogs to contain the outbreak and rebuilt the guns quickly. In the middle you can see Libra living out her sadistic tendencies, and Malver using his mental supression. I do not keep any basic, human, infantry on the base, so the enemy Saboteurs try to get in in their conscript forms, and get killed. The resulting radiation then kills even more commies, especialy if htey got depuffed by Malver. The left edge of the line gets attacked trough the ridge regularly too. I tought of mind controlling a dozen or so Desolators, and use them to radiate the area, but Saboteurs can disguise as them and are immune to radiation aswell, and I don't want to get infiltrated.

 

So, what to do next? Vote!

Nop, the Ai won't use heroes. Only Volkov and his cyborg dog are available to soviets in infantry war, but only russian AI would use them (I selected the AI like this intentionaly, to make it winable.)

Actually, this is very interesting. AI sucks hard in Infantry War even on Mental. 1vs7 ensures maximum carnage :lol:

May I suggest a Meteor Shower Infantry War mode as well? :thumbsupxd:

I'm also having a simillar battle, watching them throwing men to death is so entertaining :lol:

Once finalomega is out, I plan on making a "fortress" map, a player (the human player) in a heavily fortified base, vs 7 others. Twist is, each of the 7 other players will get 20 cloning vats (and power plants to power them).  Map name will be: Attack of the Clones (2-8). Only playable in infantry war.

10000 here. And one of the AIs is history. The 106 brutes were just enough to destroy it's conyard and barracks, forcing it to surrender. As an added bonus I managed to infiltrate its barracks, so my next wave of brutes will be veterans. Also, when they smashed their way trough the solid column of soviet infantry to the enemy base, it was like a scene from world war z lol

I decided to see what I could do, so I made an entire wall of sentries, supported by desolators. The downside of course being saboteurs everywhere and I can't do anything with all the desolators deployed (woops). Pretty much just spamming crazy ivans and saboteurs to breach a wall and get cyborgs.

You could have walled your barracks, and put a few sentries to the gate, so the enemy saboteurs can'T get inside, and will wait in front of your gate. Then you can kill them with the sentries.

And here is the current situation:

Your thoughts about it?
