Hello,

is it a bug in the iPad Version Ticket to Ride Europa, what nobody of the KIs use the station function?

Regards
Lukas

I would guess it's not a bug. If the AI can, it will always try to keep as many points as it can...so when I play against it, it finds a way to connect things without using the Station, since each station counts for 4 points if they aren't used.

Do you have a screenshot that shows a time the AI went out first and didn't use a Station when it lost a lot of points because of an unfinished route?

Hello,

no I haven't a screenshot of it, but I will do it.
I think, it's so, that the KI alsways havent some unfinished routes and end the game at first. I will also use a route instead of using a station, but if you haven't enough wagons, you must use the station. But all KIs end the game without ending the routes and without using the station. That must be a bug. Wink

I will make a screenshot next time, it's very often.

Another thing to look at is if the computer ends the game or if you do...because it's possible that the AI "plan" is to use the stations at the end of the game.

In the end, though, the AI won't be nearly the kind of opponent that a person would be. If you're wanting more of a challenge, you should try playing other people.

I had another thought...you could test your theory by playing a game of TTR: Europe and focusing on blocking the path as much as you can. Basically, try to force it to use the Stations and see if it does use them. Smile

Okay, I have a screenshot:
https://photos-1.dropbox.com/t/0/AAAYCGq04wQ6bF95AS_GmUEfO3f qx-suHwbYOC7udC0HGA/12/79668218/png/1024x768/3/1368655200/0/ 2/Foto%2015.05.13%2022%2009%2052.png/6AVaaKqeXiKWSHBoc5o-g7H -a5njYTMIR0Us-mkFo2Y

Hier you can see, Marg Loughbot will use the ticket from Paris to Zagreb.
I blocked Berlin to Wien and Munich (München) to Frankfurt.

You was the first person how haven't 2 wagons. And last step, she used Lisboa to Cadiz. That isn't in her ticket cards. She must use a station to complete Zagreb - Paris, but she haven't do it.

I had never seen a KI with stations. That must be a bug. Smile

That does sound like a strange choice. Confused Have you sent DoW a bug report with this problem? Now that you have this Screenshot, you can send a report in explaining the situation and showing them the picture. Maybe it's something that they can look into for a future update. Smile

Hello,

The Support will check it. He said, that the PoirBot is the only one who use the stations.

It prove it:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/nc5wuehcq65zodh/Foto%2030.05.13%20 18%2048%2028.png

He use the stations, but not very effective.
He use the 3 stations in London, Amsterdam and Bruxelles for his two route cards, after I had blocked much. Mad Mad Mad
But he need only two of this stations to win the game.

I think, the stationfunction must be better. (And my English Razz )

Regards
Lukas
