I just played a 2v2 against 2 Computers with my friend on ESO. Our Home City Levels still went up. Does that city level stay when i go play other people on ESO? It seems kind of cheap to be able to play a computer and advance my home city level.

Not only that but the HC files are easy to edit...which is why you can't. You have seperate HCs. Though I think you can play rated games against the computer on ESO.

well i knew the HC levels were stored on ESO so you cant hack them form your PC and play with them online, i just think games against Comps should be separated from rated games if they arent already

Well ya....but you wont get as much exp off of a comp...for one, you would need to play expert or hard if wanted experience enough to make it worth while, because anything lower is just to easy and they dont do enough to generate you exp, like killing units and buildings.

You will almost always get more exp from a human than a computer.

1. the human is smarter, game will probably last longer.
2. The human will make more units and buildings then a comp.
3. The human is just plain a lot more fun.

those 3 reasons are what makes playing a real person better. more exp in less time, even if you lose, os worth it instead of playing the comp for less exp.

no games with comps in them arent rated thus dont count for eso2 xp.

If you look at the top right it will tell you if the game is rated or not.

I think you have to play against a human player, not just a computer, to get the xp.

So you could go 2v2, with a computer on each team.

Some people seem to have gotten confused, if you play against the AI over ESO2 you don't get HC XP unless There are some human players in the game.

So if you and a friend are allie against the AI over ESO2 you will still get XP

Quoted from unknown_gnome:

It may make your stats look better, but it won't make you a better player.

There are a surprising number of people online with level 20+ HCs who have no idea how to play the game.
