But the AI had vastly superior APM/EAPM bursts that were physically impossible by humans. It's unclear how they allowed that to happen, but it looks like an oversight.
Yup, it's like putting a human player in an aim battle against an aimbot. It's a dumb script, but it will win every time before you can even say boo.

I proudly oppose all legislation to destroy our freedoms and support anything to protect our privacy online and off.
Hope I've added something to the conversation!
