Pirates and barbarians

Postby Civothy » Tue Jun 13, 2017 12:27 am

I am wondering, does the computer AI also get attacked by pirates and barbarians? If this is something that only plagues the human player then it's a "feature" I will always ensure to turn off.

I assume that this is not implemented differently in Freeciv-web from regular Freeciv, so yes, Barbarians should not discriminate between human and AI players. As far as I know, AI in general (barbarians and normal AI players) doesn't care whether other players are human or AI or what skill level the AI is set at.

I've even seen Pirates attacking and conquering Barbarian city.
