COOP (multiple players vs AI) should be more incentivized.

    If you ever felt bad for not having someone else to share your amazing moments in this game, but also don't want the constant anxiety that is inherent to Player vs Player matches, you should really try to create some COOP lobbies. I have done that the past days and the experience couldn't be better:
    • AI is actually functional (contrary to Civ V online AI);
    • TEAMS are well balanced. Things like shared culture, shared religion, shared Diplomatic points;
    • No toxicity;
    • No quitters so far;
    • Social aspect;
    • Noob friendly;
    • Skilled player friendly;
    • Crazy combo strategies;
    • Challenging starts;
    • Laughs;
    • Real alliances;
    • Meaningful trades;
    • New friends on Steam;
    • People willing to save games and continue them the other day;
    • No pressure to min-max;
    • No pressure towards mistakes;
    The list goes on. :grouphug:

    TBH, I think that games like civ, RTS, etc, which you put so much investment into, are all made to be played with COOP mode. Much less frustration. Much more happiness.

    Anyone up to start a COOP community? :thumbsup:

    You can probably do this in the Poland scenario.

    @Bliss I have a few questions. What does "AI is actually functional (contrary to Civ V online AI);" mean?
    Is this people are allied against AI civs and does that mean that you never play against other human player?

    1. In Civ 5 the AI for multiplayer mode was very limited. It didn't offer trade deals to the player nor traded between them. When playing as a team, the AI couldn't make proper use of the shared research and always got waaay behind human players.
    2. Yes the idea is to play with other players as a team to beat a team or teams of AI.
    3. The idea is to play only against the AI so players have a common goal.

    @Bliss Thank you, I didn't even know the MP AI is different than in single play. I think I get it now and it's an excellent idea.
