They're fucking piss-poor at recognizing where to fight, though....It was just so god damn bizarre to see an AI with the most impossibly perfect defencive setup do everything in its power to not utilize any of it.

I don't disagree with that, it's likely true in general. With your particular instance, how was Vicky doing with other civs in that match? What you're perceiving as AI not knowing how to confront you on that advantageous front may instead be a case of AI assessing multiple DOWs and underestimating the threat of a given front. Which goes even further toward your point of the AI just not understanding war, but on a deeper level: I think the AI is capable of tactics like using geography in terms of "Where to fight?", but there's a step before those simple tactics that is broken, and that's threat assessment. The AI has no clue.

Also, Vick's such a cunt. I love her, I get excited when she's in a match. My favorite moments with Vick are those 4 or 5 turns in the early game in which, for whatever reason, she kind of likes me. I love that brief moment, waiting for her to hate the shit out of me. There's something comforting about the inevitable and inexplicable hatred of Vicky.

Same goes for early scouting and seeing Monty as a neighbor, and then 2 turns later he pops a forward settlement on you. Monty's a good friend that way.

Completely killing them off gives you a huge diplomacy penalty with the other AIs, so I always end up leaving one shitty city furiously pumping out riflemen to match my tanks, denouncing me, yelling at me for being friends with people, getting in the way of troop/ship maneuvering, etc. for the rest of the game. Being able to say, "Hey, I could kill you, but I'll let you live if you work for me for the rest of the game." was sweet. Really problematic with how the AI worked in Civ IV, but sweet.

There's something to that. The problem is there's good and bad to each. I agree that the way it is in 5 is pretty stupid, the game forces us to this point where we strip everything away but one shit settlement on an island with no production tiles, pillage everything, and leave them be. It's dumb.

However, the Vassal system was also a pain in the ass in 4 for the reasons you mention. The AI could do some stupid shit and you were dragged into that mess, and to make it worse, even though they were your vassal you'd miss out on a lot of benefits that you thought would've been there (e.g. shared research). For me, at least, that made vassals a novelty, it wasn't a meaningful mechanic and for that reason I didn't mind it getting cut out.

I don't know how they'll resolve that. It still goes back to diplomacy. There needs to be some consideration of mercy if you're defending against a DOW and, in the process of that defense, you could potentially wipe out the civ. (To be honest, this may be in the game. I'm only unsure because I haven't wiped anyone out in so long, when I do warmonger, I'm so accustomed to leaving them sitting with one city and not much else.)

I know :P but thankfully not many games (other than SWTOR) has been very CPU heavy.

My old ass 940 at 3.6 Ghz held back my 480 like mad, mostly in open world games. Assassin's Creed 2 would sit at 40 FPS the whole time. i5 at 4.5 Ghz solved that little problem. But yes, it depends on the game. . .

Kinda wish the update gave humans more stuff, as they're kinda hurting right now. I think the only Big New Thing is the railgun Exo, which is a pretty fucking cruel trick, as that'll just lead to more players saving all their resources to buy useless mechs instead of jetpacks and landmines.

I don't disagree with that, it's likely true in general. With your particular instance, how was Vicky doing with other civs in that match?

The AI has no clue.

The only other civ on our continent was the Mayans, who we both hated, and who she had conquered about 20 turns before attacking me. In fact, I had no common border with her until she took Palenque. Now, I did have a lot of juicy, undefended cities to the north, but if she wanted to reach them, smashing her face into an uninterrupted mountain range was not the way to do it. At one point she did embark a longswordsman and a great general in the direction of my capital, but they turned around after spending two turns in the water.

That is so Vicky. We have fun together. If it helps make up for the AI's lacking battle tactics, try to pretend the AI has a very advanced sense of humor. For instance, that longswordsman/general combo was a "warning" delivered with a knowing wink.

Oh Vicky you silly thundercunt.

By the by, I just picked up the tux for the wedding on Sunday of which I am the best man for some reason.

I get this feeling that the wedding is going to be boring as Fuck though, cuz the couple is pretty fucking boring themselves. Don't have any friends or anything and just mainly hang out with themselves. It's going to be a lot of people from their church and family that I don't like and...that's it.

So my plan is to hook up with my cousin's (who is the groom) cousin who is seventeen and has always been into me.

Good plan or bad plan?
