Tricks to bolster the AI

Recommended Posts

One of the benefits of CMBN is that I have started to play more of CMBO.

The AI makes suicidal rushes so I guess it is better to play as the attacker.

One trick I am trying is to run my tanks buttoned up all the time.

Any other tricks those of you who play against the AI use?

One way to get around the enemy late-rushes (which sadly the enemy AI does even when he's defending a great position) would be to only fight meetings-engagements. However, I give the enemy a +50% to +100% handicap and +2 or +3 experience handicap. This also overcomes all my hard-learned gamey (but unrealistic) tactics. I also play with medium quality troops, automatically selected, but make the enemy of random quality and of unrestricted type, and set fog of war to full, so I never know what I'm up against until a little ways into contact.

But you get more options when playing using CMBB and CMAK. I've decided to put my campaign rule-set "Easy Company" under the CMC section, if you want to read it and see what I mean about the extra options....
