Single player AI issue

Game Version:

  • Build (####)
  • Platform (Steam)


Single player:
I choose small map with 3 players (1 vs 2 AI, Standard difficulty). When I get to imperial age and tried destroying computer city, villagers of the ai computers start building new buildings very quickly and it is hard to defeat them.

Amount of gold mine is also too low to defeat them.
Always one of AI Computer (usually with red color) is expanding quickly, but the other one is expanding slowly.
When I selected all the players to be in different team (everyone is enemy of other), the AI is always fighting with me. They are not fighting between each other or very rarely.

Reproduction Steps:

  1. standard game
  2. map small 3 players 1vs 2 ai
  3. resources standard
  4. choose ai computer ewery one different team

All i see is the AI playing normally, I can’t see anything wrong with it.
The AI is smarter than the older ones, so it’ll do what it can to survive.
What you could do instead is have more trash units (= units that don’t cost gold, aka spear, skirmisher and light cavalry lines) mixed in ur army so u don’t spend all ur gold on expensive units just to run out of it too soon.
One can easily beat any number of standard AIs with just skirmishers, light cavalry and 3+ trebuchets (+ pikemans if they go for cavalry)
