I’ve long suspected some mobile multiplayer ‘pvp’ type games of creating fake ai controlled opponents. The experience was just way too smooth. Regular reliable connections between players, and lag free too. I had never considered the next step which was the ai manipulating you, frustrating you just enough, then offering you a carrot in the form of Iap.
I love reading this stuff, it doesn’t matter that it might not be completely true, because I know it is verifiably at least half true..... and the next steps they are proposing aren’t exactly giant leaps from where we are today.
