PunaBall is quite complicated, not even humans understand how it should be played. Programming an AI (with the current TS code I doubt it's possible, but still) for PB would require lot of time and PB experience.

Battle seems quite complicated as well.

If you check out how AI's work, then you figure out that what you ask is impossible at the moment.

You're a game designer? :) It's not so easy to do, I'm sure.

Even if it can be done, it's not worth it. It's always better to play against humans (brains) than against programmed movements of an AI.

I was thinking of having a punaball ai too but perhaps not baked into TS core. Instead, there would be a documented protocol to communicate with the TS server and then anyone (with programming skills) could develop robot ai players. I know I would like to.

I am not familiar with the current TS client-server architecture so maybe this could be trivial, maybe unreasonable. Nevertheless the actual task of ai construction could be "outsourced" this way.
