Overall I am enjoying the new river raids expansion, I can see it being something which is built on and added to. However so far I feel there is one thing that is really making the game mode dull, and that’s your allies. I spend most of the time reviving and protecting my jomsvikings.
They will literally stand and get shot by an archer until they die, because he is on the other side of a wooden fence. Which has lead me to try and deal with every enemy myself because my allies seem to do nothing.
When I try and open a chest, easily 6/10 of the time I have to go and look for an ally to help, even if they are literally standing outside the door, because I just get left hanging trying to open the chest alone.
I ran into a boss style level and he killed every single jomsviking. They blocked all my shots because they crowded him, which meant I lost 7/8 jomsvikings to one enemy.
I know this expansion is heavily focused on the jomsviking, but they are some of the dumbest AI I’ve ever seen, and babysitting them through each camp is getting old really fast.
