Trying to decide what I think of using it to practice with. Obviously no substitute for playing real people, but I fell like it has some merit. If you beat back its initial push it seems to typically go into a mode where it just keeps making units and sending them out in small waves. The thing is, these waves seem to go out randomly to various expos and as a result it somewhat simulates a game where your getting constantly harassed so I feel like to really forces me to work on multitasking and macroing when I'm getting messed with on all fronts and having random tanks siege up just outside the range of my main force and start attacking it.
I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on what you guys think, any merit at all to playing against this. Like I said, its obviously nowhere near as helpful as practicing against actual players, but I don't feel like its a complete waste.

Basically its a "cheating" AI script in that it recieves money at random points in time. Can make it a little frustrating to kill because it keeps some crap back in its base, and you can't starve it out. It also uses build orders that resemble standard BO (some scripts do anyway). Also a few replays of the AI and how it plays (they'll bug if you don't watch the replay from the Racince's Rebels load of SC)
