I guess it's time for a new bio since I've had the other one for eons. Head dev of Insolence, I have some very limited experience with coding, yadda yadda yadda.

So I decided to have a singleplayer skirmish match in Zero Hour, I set it up as a 5v3 game with me and 2 hard AIs against 5 medium AIs. I decided to go with the US Laser General because, face it, I am a sucker for freakin' laser beams. I built a couple of supply buildings as usual, followed by a couple of barracks and so on. But then, within 10 minutes the 2 AIs who were allied with me seemed to think it would be a good idea to cut my damn supply line off by capturing every oil drill that was within a 50 mile radius of my base. As if that was bad enough, they then proceeded to build supply buildings in front of the resources that are right in front of my fucking base even though they still had plenty for themselves. Then I got attacked and lost pretty much every unit I had on the map but the builders and one laser turret. I only had enough resources to make around 10-20 infantry units, so that's exactly what I decided to do. Then, about 30 seconds later, the goddamn legion of hell shows up at my doorstep with all 5 of the medium AIs coming to completely end me even though the 2 hard AIs are way more built up than I am, and both of them have multiple nukes preparing to fuck their shit up. I didn't survive the attack, naturally and had to sit back and watch as the two hard AIs were inevitably defeated by everyone and their grandma. Yet one of them actually decided to fire his nuke at himself due to the big influx of enemy forces at his base. So he effectively blew himself halfway to hell and got eliminated. Then the other hard AI actually fired his nukes at the enemies' bases. It really didn't do any good though since he was defeated as well. It was one hell of a catastrophe.
