Good day,

I'm playing SOASE Rebellion V. 1.82.5006 without any mod.

I've just finished a Huge galaxy game Vs 8 CPU opponents in CRUEL mode. I'm playing Advent Loyalist.

 

In the end game I noticed two things that dissapointed me a lot, as I just LOVE Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion.

I've been playing Master of Orion 2 for many years and was starting to think that it was impossible to get a decent - and recent - 4X game. And then I discovered SOASE and got addicted to it. I just love the pace of it, and the challenging AI. Congrats to the team who created it !!

And now I come across two very annoying AI bugs (CRUEL AI) :

- My strongest opponent's Titan has been locked on a gas giant for the last 3 game hours... It's stupid, I've been defeating his main fleet very easily since his Eradica is far away and keeps stupidly hunting my trade ships in this useless gravity well...

This is really a game killer bug you know... I wonder if it's not going to cut my pleasure in future FFA games.

- My ally has a free terran planet he previously owned, which is very close to his capital. For the last 4-5 hours, he hasn't colonized it back. I can't understand this behaviour, since I just supported him against another AI and he took back asteroids and dwarf planets in the outer parts of his realm... but this juicy terran near his capital ??? No way ! He's economically crippled but would ignore a terran planet free of charge ? that's really not serious...

I just wished to give a lil feedback and perhabs share points of vue with other players...

Good game everyone,

MOO4

Quoting Sinkillr,

Play multiplayer.

But not everyone wants to play multiplayer. Its like asking a bird to swim for some of us.

that's well said ! both of you !

Thanks for your point gentlemen !

Yeah I like to take my time to play ; I like challenging and crushing machines also..not humans.

well...... we'll see if I go multi finally... but I guess you can't save when you play in multiplayer mode.. :/

...and it's a problem since I'm married

But loading them is another question.. Gather everyone again for it at the same time is not always easy.

I understand.. thanks.

That's sort of what I meant by sayin " I guess u can't save when u play multi.."..

I remember the time when we used to play Orion 2 on 4 PC's in LAN ..

4 guys glued to the screen for 10 hours... and some girlfriends getting angry waiting at home.. sorry gals !..
