I think the necrons are far too overpowered. I have a very hard time fighting them. Also, I've noticed necron AI players consistently defeat any other AI player. What really kills you is the Necron commander running up and stunning a large portion of your army and base defenses, then a nearly invulnerable group of Necron warriors march up and pulverize everything. Maybe there's some trick to this I'm not getting.

yeah they generally defeat the other AI and generally the first defeated one is IG

Makes sense. Necrons are so easy to play because they're good at everything. So the AI is real easy to program. On the other hand, the IG are a real hard faction to use, so AI is difficult to tailor for them. But occassionally the AI does use IG well, and they can be real hard to beat.

It kinda make's sense though seeing as anything you read in fluff or TT makes the crons out to be some unstable all destructive killing force.

:rofl: I think you're just too slow to attack. The Necrons are wayyy slow moving. I easily beat them using the Imperial Guard. The first thing you should do is rush them!!! Crons are pretty crappy at Tier 1. You just keep swarming Guardsmen at them, that is if their base is nearby :Puzzled: Plus... Capture the strat points. The more strat points you have, the weaker the Crons are. They use power, but to make up for requisition, their population grows by the use of obelisks. If you have the Necrons trapped with only one to three strat points, you should do ok. :eek: The Imperials are also crappy when at Tier 1-2(provided they don't have basilisks). Though they have the commies and The Command Squad, you can easily counter them. When the guard reaches Tier 3, watch out coz they have the STRONGEST TANKS IN THE GAME!!! Kill every Basilisk Artillery you can find. They'll EARTHSHAKER your arse back to the Warp... :lol: FOR THE EMPEROR!!!

Necrons are very slow so it is possible to rush them and if you have dead necronlord in base just keep 1 basic unit nearby he won't wake up. If there is some tank in your base ...well make few turrets. Otherwise in my games necrons don't really live up to much in ai against ai. They are beaten as the first ones usually.

the necrons on the TT are supposed to be unstoppable and very hard to kill the eldar are the necs main foe and thus they use tactics 2 beat them

Not in my experience. My turrets usually get chopped to pieces (along with everything else:Puzzled:) by the gauss weaponry. The necrons have always beaten everyone else, ai to ai, in my games.

I find the necrons AI goes one of two ways, it either chooses to rely heavily upon warriors, or it takes the path of the wraith, and depending on how the other enemy's in the game react that usually determines the victory or defeat. If they go heavy wraith and they fight some IG ai, the IG usually end up being reduced to bloody shreds in very little time.
