I am presently number 1 in a game. I was ahead of everyone tech wise. but now over the last few techs, I noticed that an ai is gettingthe same tech as me the very turn I get the tech, and this is before spies, even if there was spies I would need to end the turn before his spy had a chance to streal it. Meanwhile he is teching up in other areas. The leader is Mali and this seems to be consistant in all games with mali. I do not think we are on the same tech path, and even if we where 6 or more tech s in a row??? I doubt it.
