I upgraded from 3.16 to 3.19 after a year or so not playing the game, and I notice some changes : namely, I'm getting spanked on "easy" levels, or at least easier than I was playing. I used to play Prince, sometimes Monarch, and now I seem to have difficulties to keep my own on Noble. I've noticed AIs beelining Alphabet, others declaring war on me out of the blue in the early turns without reason, and they all seem to tech quite fast. Is it just me who suck, or did the AI have a boost since 3.16 ? I'm using the BAT mod 2.0.
