I think the AI of your teammates in most online games is terrible. For example I was playing Tribes: Ascend and trying to pass the flag off as I only have 200ish life left and lost all my speed.

VFT (Take the flag from me!)
VFT (Take the flag from me!)
VFT (Take the flag from me!)
VFT (Take the flag from me!)
VFT (Take the flag from me!)
VFT (Take the flag from me!)

Stop in front of a heavy defender and drop the flag at his feet.

He looks at it but decides to chase after a random soldier instead.

I get hit with an MIRV.

We lost that game.




On a more serious note; an example of good AI is Mechcommander on the hardest difficulty. (The first one, second one was garbage.) Enemy mechs would take into consideration yours and their armaments and move accordingly. Alot of it was scripted but it was amazing for its time.
