Sometimes I play custom games versus A.I. in order to fine-tune an opening, to warm-up, etc.
I often play as Terran, however when playing against a Zerg the A.I. ALWAYS chooses a 1 base roach strategy. I've gotten to the point where I can beat it with any opening.
I am trying to force myself to play against it as if it is playing a Fast Expand (FE), or 6 pool, or anything else (I invest hard in marines, go to banshee, do FE myself), but in any case, I am still subconsciously prepared to counter a roach attack at around 6 minutes.
Is there any way to force the A.I. to vary it's strategies? For example, it can play a roach rush, but it would be nice if it could do at least some scouting and (for example if some marauders are detected) expand and use existing roaches to keep expand instead of attempting to destroy wall/bunker/marauders.
