But isn't that true of most 4x games? I do that when I play Endless Legend too. Why single BERT out in this instance for a flaw inherent in 4x games, or even strategy games in general when played against an AI opponent? Even EU4 fans will tell you that there's nothing left to do after the first 150 years of a SP game and that's not a 4x game. Strategy and 4x games' AI can't play a long game. Boring? Not for me even if it is undeniably boring for others. There are millions of people who think durian is delicious and call it the king of fruit whereas for me, it has the appeal and the texture of congealed snot and smells like vomit. We're all different.
