I hadn’t done any pvp for a fairly long time but semi recently started doing 3 modded pvp battles a day to complete the daily missions and get lucky with some prizes.and there is a lot of odd behavior in the battles. I know that the tournaments are all bots, it’s quite obvious, but again in the modded pvp there is some strange stuff that goes on that makes you wonder sometimes, do you get a legit player once in a while?
I had a modded aquatic recently where it seemed like a legit rage quit disconnect. Fight was going, some strange crafty plays from the other side early on and at a glance it probably seemed like i was sure to lose but i still had everything planned out for a guaranteed win. Comes down to 1 v 2, i take out 1 of the 2 and as the opponents next creature rolls up and the mods update its clear i am guaranteed a win by 1 move and boom disconnect. It was exactly what you would expect from time to time with some real PvP, and i don’t get too many disconnects.
It isn’t uncommon to see teams build like a real person would do to try and get an edge match up wise. Low level dino, high level dino, low level dino.
Sometimes the plays made are not what you would expect from a bot, for better or worse. I have had fights where the opponent does an extra hit that is not needed. I had a fight the other day in modded where i had armored hide on my lead off dino and the opponent saved up 7 moves and burned them all on attack. Do they have like stupid bots sometimes?
Sometimes the match ups are super balanced and screams bot, other times they are fairly lopsided liked it must have been searching for an opponent and this was the best they could do.
But at the same time i don’t think i have ever had any forfeits from the opponent, you would think you should definitely get some here and there. I know if i am guaranteed to lose i don’t waste my time and forfeit. Even before i was actually doing the pvp’s for the daily missions i would still “do the fights” to complete the mission but immediately quit forfeit out as soon as the timer started because i didn’t feel like wasting time doing the fights. So at some point if it wasn’t all bots eventually one of those hundreds of matches i quit would had to of been against another player so someone should see forfeits.
