Has anyone else noticed the AI becoming significantly better at waging land wars since the most recent patch? I will say that unless I'm rushed by the AI early in the game I still can handle them relatively well but I've noticed that they are attacking each other and are making meaningful gains much much more frequently than before this patch. The group I play an online match with each week has also generally noticed this. I guess I'm wondering if these are isolated incidents or if the AI's capabilities for land combat have actually improved. I've played three games (admittedly small sample pool) since the patch and in each game the AI has managed to conquer at least two of the other civs completely and when they do it they do it very fast. There are no drawn out wars. I've witnessed an AI Mapuche conquer a 7 city Pericles empire in under 30 turns for example. I typically play on Emperor if that matters. They seem particularly deadly with heavy cavalry units recently. My friend faced an AI Genghis who had his units receiving over +20 combat strength each and the AI actually managed to take three cities from him even though he had modern anti-cav units and the AI was still using cuirassiers.
