Summary0024467: Relentless AI Absorber does not attack bubble forcefields
DescriptionRelentless AI Absorber does not attack bubble forcefields, which means they stay stuck on a bubble forcefield if it is covering a command station, resulting in them staying there until the forcefield is moved. As their albedo score is 0.7, they cannot be revealed through any normal means (tachyon, sentry frigate), so the player needs to manually move the forcefield and allow the absorber to attack the command station to reveal them. Since they prevent structures from repairing, this is very annoying.

I'd expect relentless AI to attack whatever is closest rather than camp, but honestly I don't think absorber should ever camp like this as it completely slows down repair or construction on planets with no counterplay.

Absorbers are on Perlman, move the forcefield off the command station to reveal them.

I'd guess that absorbers are now revealed since the cloak bug is fixed, but I'd also guess that they still move towards the command station without attacking if there's a bubble forcefield in the way, effectively making them useless
