Herr Doktor and stupid AI Sat, 15 June 2013 05:42
So, having recently purchased this for my Android tablet (finally!)...I have to say that playing a 5 player game solo (haven't tried online yet) is really frustrating due to "Herr Doktor". The only thing this particular AI seems to do is collect cards, cards and more cards...occasionally playing long routes...but rarely ever completing any of his tickets.

Not only does this make "him" a boring player...but it can lead to near glitches in the game. He hoards so many cards, that the draw pile runs low. Tonight it got down to a 6 or 7 cards, 4 of which were locomotives. Which meant that 3 locomotives were getting dealt out...which led to a reshuffle...which led to 3 more locomotives getting dealt, etc etc etc. It seems to have a limit of 5 redeals...but this is tedious when it happens after EVERY player.

Please, DoW, fix the Doktor!

he's a little ridiculous, but there is a strategy to him. consider each 6 route in the game, 45 trains, meaning you can get 7 6-routes. 7*15 = 105, minus (if he's lucky), 10 or so points, scores 95. If any of his long routes cause a block to you, you don't get many points, and get less from routes than he does.

however, it's an awful strategy, cause it limits him to 95 or less points.
it's not bugged, it's just stupid.

As for the card pile bug.... that's interesting. there is actually no provision for that in the rules... probably cause it doesn't happen.

If I recall correctly, thats exactly the strategy the Doctor is supposed to use. If you don't like it, don't play against him.

That strategy actually works pretty well in a 2-3 player game - I've won a few times with it.
