I'm suggesting this because I don't want the game to be criticised for the friendly AI being almost complete crap, and that would have bad consequences. We all want the game to do well, and leaving in half unfinished work (wow, that was pessimistic) from mid way through the development cycle could give the impression that you cant be bothered to fix something before release. I'm not trying to come across as rude here; I understand you have a lot you want to do before 1.0, but when you have a dedicated community which is telling you you should change your priorities, there is generally a very good reason them saying so. Now I'm not suggesting you immediately start work on fixing the AI (not that it wont be appreciated), but you should most definitely fix the AI before releasing the game. Again, sorry if this came across as a bit of a rant, I'm just trying to get you to understand the seriousness of my reasoning.
