Im not sure if im just doing something wrong or not just an example i get a mission to go capture something which they don't seem to ever send help with me so i kill everyone at the point it just says hold the point so i do. I keep waiting and waiting but help never shows up and i can't complete the mission. also currently trying to take the dark valley from freedom but can't really figure out how to do that when i enter the area i have no help at all. I try to capture a strategic point in the valley but once again i never actually capture it. Am i the only one with this annoying problem?
Nope, the AI's responsible for sending a party to back you up, sometimes they just don't come through.
I have seen some squads that were travelling to the place I was holding, only for them to get side-tracked half way and make a camp in another place. I gave up waiting, went to complete one of the story quests and when I had finished it the take and hold mission ended - it must have triggered something and spawned a friendly squad there.
I hope they make the AI a little faster at responding for backup in the upcoming patches then.
Yeah I noticed sometimes if you go too fast and way ahead of them, they will let you do it alone and you may or may not get credit for doing it (which you should normally get a reward for from the faction trader). Well I think we'll still have rely on the mod community cause from what I've seen PRIBOI is one of the only MODs for SOC where the AI will actually run at full sprint speed to go somewhere or to fall back from a fire fight when needed.
