I open this thread searching your comments of course.
I usually play this game in sp campaigns to know new scenarios and new histories of the past.
I prefer a game in security and no rush victory.
At extreme level I played many games vs AI with success but with no doubt I saw cheats.
I accept that AI skills improve about:
acknowledge about units, buildings or maps;
the generals can be stronger ones;
but it’s enough.
I think that:
TC must have same time to create inhabitants;
the knight must explore like mine to reveal the map;
the inhabitants or fish ships must collect as mine (if not improving the technology);
the population limit must be real and respected with no shortcut in technology tree.
Yes, I’m a noob since 20y in MS games, but I loved them anyway; sure honour and medals to their pro players.
