    This game type is quite fun. I was afraid I would end up spending most of the match in jail waiting for my mostly useless bot teammates to come get me out, but the arena battles generally help prevent that. The bots actually aren't all that bad either. I have seen a few problems though.

    The jail door in Suspense seems to close too fast. It takes several releases for everybody to escape. My first time in, the door closed before I figured out where it was.

    The bots seem to have some BS accuracy with the Sniper Rifle in Facing Worlds' arena. They were only on Excellent difficulty but they killed me in two shots every time. I was dead before I even knew where they were.

    Strand also seems to have some AI issues. I played it 6 vs 6, and when I was eventually sent to jail I started watching the bots move around on the radar. Everything appeared to be going fine until it got down to 2 red vs 1 blue.
    At that point, I noticed the two red bots were standing still guarding the red release switch, while the blue bot was apparently standing still in an unknown location. I waited for five minutes and nobody moved, so I used the command menu to tell the red team to attack.​
    After a couple minutes, they had finally made their way over to the blue base and released us. I found the last blue bot no more than 10 seconds after I exited the cell. It was pacing back and forth in a hallway, and didn't seem to pay any attention to me until I shot him in the face.​

    it seems like if you dodge into their view in face, they are likely to miss, and for some reason, after that, they have really bad accuracy.

    (I had to use kismet to force the bots to attack, because no matter what I did, defense points, whatever, I could not get them to attack without using kismet to tell them to- it seemed like the distance was the issue. That said, their accuracy doesn't seem unusual to me. I've both beaten and been beaten by them many times, and i'm not very good).

    We know there are some situations where bots seem to just "go stupid." We're working on it :p

    The bad news is any kind of "patch" is going to be the entire mod in size... due to the BS behind Epic's cooking system. our future releases are likely to just be uncooked in order to work around these problems (example: cooking a map "bakes" all the code it needs to operate into the map- When loaded in the game, the game uses all the code included in the map package. If you later update the mod, the map still has the old version of the mod baked into it, and so you have to include new copies of the maps as well, to truly get rid of the old version. Thus its starting to look like no maps for a mod can be cooked, or else you'll end up playing an old version of the mod whenever that map comes up, if the mod is later updated. Epic really dropped the ball with "cooking")

    or alternatively get the mappers to provide their uncooked to the team leader\coder and that coder can cook up new versions that go with new releases of the mod. My uncooked maps are 4-5 times the size of cooked. Your mappers may not have that issue admittedly. Cooked also run more efficiently in game so may be something to think about ;)

    [EDIT] If your release is 4 times as big to download once and you only update it 3 times ppl would still be better off with cooked as they would only be downloading 3\4 the amount. It would also be more likely to be picked up by people like me who operate under a monthly download limit at 1\4 the size. Id pick it up either way dont get me wrong, just the odds are better the other way 500MB vs. 2GB

    cooked maps load a bit faster; that's about it.

    This doesn't solve the problem that all maps have to be included with the new mod version. And you're lucky if your maps are smaller when cooked. Cooked maps never compress as well as uncooked ones, and some maps actually grow in size significantly when cooked. JB-Strand actually increased in size when cooked. So cooking doesn't always (and really often doesn't) help with filesizes.

    Trust us, we've been wrestling with how to deal with this problem. :p
