I know theres loads of AI related tickets, but this is just one more. This is a fault that I feel does need attention. So can a mod add this as relation to the primary AI ticket?
At times, not always, but often, when I engage AI in combat, they can very easily get distracted and forget about me, when in fact I am a big threat to them, and this is very noticable in close range. the down side to this is, it kills the mood, and adrenaline rush.
For example, tonight, playing infantry showcase I came accross this twice again. I will try and describe it as detailed as possible. I will try update with screen shots if I see it again, but I suppose video would be more useful.
The first incident was closing in on the town, I was flanking to the left top, not too high up. There is a biggish rock just above the path, so I was taking cover behind the rock, and firing on the AI that were coming from the villiage out towards where my team was (100m back because they are so slow), and I was like probably 10m away from AI, and started shooting at the one AI, it then directed it's attention to me, firing off a few rounds, and then my team engaged another AI unit, but this particular AI unit just completely forgot that I was behind that rock, still very much alive and capable of shooting him... Which I did... But he just stood there as if I did not exist.
Realistically I would imagine in the event that an AI gets engaged at two different locations, that they would fall back and seek cover, not prioritize whose more deadly and direct their attention that way, because anyone with a gun in ARMA is a deadly priority.
Second incident, same session, but like 2min later, after pretty much clearing out the town and completing that objective, there was still one AI running around at the far back of the villiage, and I went after him. As I came around the corner, I saw the AI running my way about 30m away, I then let off a few random rounds as suppresion so I could revert back behind the wall for cover, and the AI just stood there kinda confused, did not shoot at me, and shockingly, just turned to he's left on the corner of the building aiming towards my team mates not even firing at them (assuming they werent in line of fire). Like once again, it forgot that I even existed, when I openly shot at it, and made my presence as a threat known, and it just ignored me!
Once again same result, however this time it was not engaged by any gunfire from my team mates. I would have expected it in that case that the AI would react in such a way that it would have dived for cover, maybe pop a few suppressing rounds at the corner where I was covering behind, and look for cover of it's own, and then proceed to that cover secured from my line of fire, and possibly my team mates, given my team mates weren't even firing at it, I was the priority and AI should have engaged me.
