Haha, I just started up a new game and Rome is near my start, on turn 16 I settle near Rome and he tells me I am a disgrace and denounces me. Then literally 2 turns later I get another message from him saying my empire reaches from jupiter to the heavens! He has a lovely smiling face during the animation and then that turns immediately to a frown because apparently he has now remembered how upset he was originally. This happens in every single game, and while kinda funny, it is completely immersion breaking and nobody here or anywhere can tell me that is even remotely acceptable from a AAA game. This is part of the reason I didn't pay full price. I waited for a sale, because honestly, this is garbage and I knew these things going in because I had read the reviews and played the demo. This stuff DOES affect FXS bottom line profits, and I am sure some people at the studio are aware of that and want it to change, but I know that large companies like this often have completely out of touch, idiotic management, who I'm sure have no idea what is important. This is very simple stuff, I am not talking about complex combat situations and district micro, although that would be nice. This is the core foundations, the most basic level stuff, and I am sorry if criticism hurts, but it is garbage. Is the AI intended to be so Comedic?
