yes, it can be.

AI uses only those units that is defined as "best against me", so an archer have eg. the skirmisher defined to skirmi will be produced against archer.
i think assassin whould be good against hard to defeat targets like elephants, hoplite, so i could define that - what do you think?

(and of course there is a default production list too - but i did not wanted to produce assassins by default..

....
... actually i think ai would not use assassins wisely, it would even kill a simple scout dog with its assassin if it can reach it - and that would be waste of 4 turns assassin production - so i better make it a little more clever before activating the assassin in the AI.

Well it is time you made ai expert category which has all freedoms the player have(access to all units, structures, upgrades, techs, etc) alongwith additional benefits(know where the player is and so on ) and also increased intelligence

Yes. The key to win with ai is just give some time-within 30 turns you would have upgraded units, sige units, etc while the ai would still be building walls :oops:

Exactly. The three steps to surviving the AI:

1. Fortify
2. Upgrade
3. Rush
