What is wrong with him? He’s worse than ANY player, even newbies.
I’m specifically talking about his obsessive Sound Spike tendencies.
Like seriously, it is so infuriating playing with an AI Griffin. I played one game with bots to try to get literally 1 more Lazarus revive for his second mastery, and it took me WAY too long for one of my allies to kill themselves because Griffin refused to catch the AI Kraken at all.
He places sound spikes way too frequently. He’ll place one down every 10 seconds or so, and will stand completely still whilst doing it, so he’s often trailing the rest of the group who are following me (…the lazarus medic. I won’t go into the other weird AI habits here though). He’ll also place them WAAAAY too close together. ‘Oh, I’m 30 meters from a sound spike? better place another’. This basically means that at best he only covers about 1 quarter of the map, and that quarter is constantly moving because he’s constantly placing them, removing old ones. He’ll place them with no care about where they are in regards to eachother or in regards to just general wildlife. ‘Yeah, I’ll throw it down next to these reavers that’ll destroy it in 3 seconds’.
He prioritses placing Sound Spikes over literally everything else. When the Kraken is MIRACULOUSLY found from one of his sound spikes, he’ll place another one, killing the sensor that had actually caught the Kraken in the first place. He will prioritise laying a Sound Spike when we are on the Kraken’s tail. He even prioritised placing a sound spike over catching the Kraken in the god damned arena. The Kraken flew right past us, almost over us, and I heard Griffin, who was standing directly next to me, saying ‘Sensor placed!’, as the Kraken flew out of arena range.
Turtlerock pls. The AI is overall pretty good despite some odd habits, especially for new players, but Griffin is borderline useless. You’re basically playing without a Trapper.
