    If you think this AI is braindead, you should have seen Civ 5 at launch without those rose-tinted glasses. This is bad. That was worse. WAY worse.

    The AI in Civ V upgrades its units. It also can attack and take cities. It does build an air force and uses it. Have you seen these things happen in Civ VI? I haven't yet. And that is just the military AI. CiV VI at this point is worse than vanilla Civ V imo. The AI is a mess all around. I cannot wait for a patch. I am hoping the more Firaxis reads comments like this and takes notes the faster they'll begin to fix things.

    Ive been paying since CIV 1 and this is the worse I've seen it.
    AI forward settles your capital and then complains about units on their borders???
    AI can't defend its own cities
    AI can' take a city
    If you join a war you will still get denounced by the AI you have joined in battle. This is plain illogical, and as a programmer I know this is just poor programming there is very little logic here
    AI doesn't upgrade units
    All the AIs hate each other so makes no difference if they hate you as well
    They don't combine there old units into corps or armies
    Some AI complain you too big and strong and they fear you and they not even on the same continent ( Greece )
    Spain says you are doing well with money ( I have 200 gold ) A few turns later he says I am struggling with money I now have 1000 gold ??? Does this mean they just randomly say things to you. It sure looks like it
    I have joined both Gandhi and Scythia in war yet they denounce me as well I find this pathetic
    The game is no challenge there is no fear factor. You know the AI is never going to take your cities you know you will soon out tech the AI. You know you will just pass them in culture because you can easily steal there great works. You know they will never build inquisitors so just convert their cities with holy districts and they will spam your units. So how does the AI win???? I was often beaten in all the other CIv's I have yet to loose or even restart in CIv 6. I want a challenge I want it to be hard on deity.

    When you look at the history of the world... The AI seems pretty realistic.

    Can you provide me with one instance in world history where someone joined someone in battle and they got denounced by the person they joined when they joined the war

    Also... as someone else said... yes the AI is pretty bad, but, compared to V vanilla? C'mon.

    Comparing BNW which took 3 years to complete to a game that has been out for about a week.

    VI is far, far, far better a game than V was at launch - FAR - better.

    It was bad in civ v but at least the ai built boats and planes and upgraded their units. Civ has always been bad on release but it really looks like they ran out of time and it shows

    Maybe we shouldn't start talking about "true" civ fanatics. All of us want to have fun with CiVI... some found it, some don't. Does not mean that all those who are having fun already just fall for slick graphics.

    I'm playing on deity. Once you get past the first phase the game is too easy. I lost on deity in civ v now and then and in civ iv often
    Ai leaves cities undefended etc

    I come back for a little bit every time a new game/expac comes out.
