Okay, this is another one of my little gripes.
I keep seeing people referring to the so called "cheating" that
is supposedly so blatant on the computer's side in Warcraft II; most of these people are the ones that claim the AI is moronic. (Disclaimer:
Though I'm sure I'll be accused of it, I never said the AI was brilliant.)
My question is this: how can you say that the computer is
cheating? If you start a scenario with a flying machine and you go over
and watch the computer build, you'll see that it does everything by the rules. It's just that it's perfectly efficient in collecting resources;
it never has peasants/peons standing idle while it's working on something else, and it knows exactly how many to put on lumber and how many on
gold, and it knows exactly how many farms it needs, etc.
I have watched this more than once. If you watch what the
computer does and follow the method it uses, you can accomplish the same thing it does.
How is this cheating?

The only difference is that "May The Force : : be with you" sounds a lot nicer than "May you be covered in duct tape." : :..........................................................................:
