WarCraft II AI Table
Version 5.51

Here is a brief description of the various types of AIs. Each lists what that AI builds, upgrades, what buildings it needs, and any relevant notes. If an AI doesn't have "Will build town" in its notes section, you should have it start out with any buildings it needs. If it does build a town, it is probably not a good idea to start it with anything but some Peasants, as to do otherwise might throw the AI off. Note: each AI is listed with human units for consistency; AIs perform the same way with either human and orc units. In addition, no AI is labeled as upgrading Knights, since that in covered under upgrading Footmen.

Two AIs were tested at a time; each AI had a "start from scratch" setup and a "already have it all" setup. AIs were labeled "very defensive" if they were not observed to attack. AIs were said to be "fond of (guard, cannon, scout) towers" if they built four or more of that type. AIs were stamped "fond of building type" if they were seen to seen to build three or more of that type.

Even if two AIs look identical, they differ in many respects, such as the rate of unit production and town building efficiency. As a general rule, the expansion AIs are a lot smarter than the original AIs; they are more prone to build towers and produce units faster. In addition, expect higher number AIs to be smarter than lower number AIs, since the game was designed to get more difficult after you solved the beginning scenarios.

If you have a correction or addition to make, mail me at lemberg@bayserve.net and I'll add it in. I am sure that there is a lot of AI behavior that I've missed, so experiment!
