Just watched the championship game. That game really showed some of the flaws in the AI. Especially the refusal to tech rifling is annoying with stock-AI. There are just too many techs to choose from in the late renaissance / early industrial (its very interesting for a human, but the AI struggle). The techers like Willem would be so much stronger if they prioritized rifling properly. While we do want AIs to have flavor, they should at least beeline rifling when under attack. When it gets as extreme as in this game (which it so often does) the personality just gets annoying rather than making the game more enjoyable. This is the first season of AI survivor I've watched and it turned out to be much more fun than expected.
