The "AI" is broken. This game is very pretty, but not challenging at all. The other players just make dumb mistakes and cannot manage any change of strategy. Playing Rise and Fall (Immortal) I have won every game I have played and basically I feel there is actually no "AI". Examples below : Playing as Pericles Island Masses...going for Culture Victory - Over the course of the game, I never engaged anyone in combat - Was able to earn about 75% of great works (either through GP/trades or stealing) - It was obvious by about 1600 or so, I was going to win a culture victory at this rate yet no one seemed to care or attempted to invade. They were even trading me some of their artifact/relics for resources. - I was so greatly behind in science, that I was guarding my cities with Warriors and crossbowmen. I saw armadas and armies just pass me by on their way to other pursuits. - I won in 1900 with a Culture victory Playing as Laurento Continents...not going for any particular vicoty just winging it - I was about middle of the road in all victory conditions the entire game. - I saw Kongo was going to win a culture victory so I built up and small army and invaded. I was able to take most cities/wonders/great works with literally no resistance - Won Culture Victory in 1950 Playing as Austrailia...won Science Victory 1970 I have only lost 1 game playing at this level..... This games "AI" is very broken, there can be no explanation/arguement that it is not. There is no resistance offered for any victory condition Can anyone help me get a better challenge?
