I've been steadily playing BNW now since its release. I've played each of the new civs and played some of the old ones to see how they function under the new dynamic. (Monty rocks in BNW). I love all the new additions, the trade routes, tourism, the new cultural system is light years ahead of what it used to be. However one thing I have noticed that sometimes irks me is that it seems all the AI's are obssessed with the cultural victory option or at least with culture in general. Most of the AI's do not go wide (I usually play wide) and in some cases I've seen 2-3 cities tops for the more culturally oriented civs like France. Not such a big deal but when it comes to the World Congress the AI's all gravitate to the option to increase production of artists and writers and decrease production of scientists and merchants. If I am playing Brazil that's fine with me. I'm naturally going for the cultural win as well. But when I decide to go scientific and want to build a space ship or just build the unbeatable army it seems I am the only civ who wants to vote for the increase in scientist and merchant generation. This has happened in every play through I have done. I have seen civs who should be inclinced to the science victory like Korea and Babylon just jumping on the cultural bandwagon. The only civ who I won't upset with an increased science proposal is usually the straggler civ who is still in the Rennaisance era while we're all going Industrial. Again, it makes sense to me since this is the culture focus version of Civ but I think the AI's have really gone overboard with their bias towards culture. I've even seen Genghis and Atilla jumping on that bandwagon. I would like to see a little more diversity in the AI's prorities. Are any of them even trying to build space ships anymore? I usually play on Prince so I don't know if at the higher difficulties people are seeing this bias. I am curious to see what people's thoughts are regarding this perceived over emphasis on culture by everyone in the game.
