I’ve watched thousands of AutoPlay farming over nearly two years. I always laughed at its inability/unwillingness to form dragons and diamonds unless by ‘accident’. It appears that the AI has now been taught how to form dragon matches. It doesn’t choose that move every time, but far more than it ever used to.
Example (pardon the lame graphics but I’m not going to spend 20 minutes making pretty pictures):
Previously, the AI would always move row 4 up to row 3, making a match of 3. Now, I have seen it form dragons much more frequently.
Still a long ways to go, but thought I would mention this.
