Interesting article....

It's the greatest and most spectacular battle in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

"For the first two years, the biggest problem we had was soldiers fleeing the field of battle," Taylor said.

"It was the fact that you could get a computer to think for itself, that you could get 200,000 agents within the computer to think for themselves."

"We could not make their computers stupid enough to not run away."
