The Algoryn are forged by war against the Ghar. Even their basic AI squads can cope with many units in the game but their flexibility through specialist units, upgrades and support options helps them survive and overcome: AI Assault Squads can take on Ghar Assault squads and beat them at their own game; AI Infiltrators can pose an annoying threat to many opposition squads; Hazard squads can even resist light and medium drones, as well as take on Ghar.
In play the AI need careful handling and sensible use of their upgrades; in force selection, they need a savvy hand to select the most appropriate weaponry, support options and upgrades – for the latter are advised. However, they are fundamentally tough and have the flexibility to adapt their tactics to exploit the weakness of any enemy.
The AI are great for players who like analysing their opponent and teasing out their weaknesses, adjusting their strategy as necessary. The AI visual aesthetic is often angular, hard and representative of a non-nonsense, war-footing civilisation: they even look tough.
