It depends on whether the pre-release build is being patched every time there's a code modification. If not then Maddjinn's build is also outdated and the release on Friday could have changes that we haven't witnessed yet because they haven't been implemented in any of the pre-release builds. Also, apparently Pete Murray stated on Twitter that the AI CAN move and shoot now so either he's blatantly lying to reassure us or they really have improved it, and we just haven't seen the improvements yet because as I already mentioned, they haven't been added to the version that Maddjinn is playing. Either way I'm sure the developers will get a lot of questions regarding the AI in tomorrow's AMA so we'll see what they say then. What I'm worried most about is will the AI know when a player is pursuing an Affinity victory and they're in the middle of completing their warp gate? Will the AI know to attack the player at that point or are they just going to sit back while the Supremacy/Purity/Harmony player fulfills their victory conditions?
