@utek Please note this is my personal opinion and does not reflect that of Tripwire, the design team of any future products, leadership, etc.
Right now I would tend to agree. I think most players who played RO 2 strongly remember the state of the bots and their ability to do their "functions" - Get to a point to cap it, and shoot people, was fairly basic.
In a future world I see much improved AI that provides a better foil to the player and I can see scenario where that could work in a MP environment as well. HOWEVER, I believe the base mode of such a future RO/RS title would be better off as a purely player vs player environment.
