I love Nakai and when I play him I feel like a total beast. But when he's AI controlled, he just yeets himself into the nearest garrison and gets wiped out instantly. In my most recent Lizardmen ME campaign as Cult of Sotek, he appeared in Lustria. I was pretty jazzed to see the Champion of my people appear (also confused, can he just spawn in like that?), but just wandered (as one does) for a few turns and then died to the Vampire Coast Mutineers. Not even Luthor himself, some peon extra settlement.
I get that AI and balancing is really hard, but didn't anyone see this in beta? As I hear, if you play as Markus Wolfheart then Nakai will die to some NPC faction within the first 13 turns. He, and maybe other horde factions, need some kind of method to survive. He deserves better than this, and it also severely undermines the whole theming of the expansion pack I think, to have this great nemesis usually die to a small village before you ever see him.
I don't know what it would take to fix them, personally, but any discussion or attention the topic gets would be great for the cause. Thank you anybody for your time!
