I’m two days into a 64 player game and have three neighbours. One was afk from the start and the other two quit. I was on good terms with the two guys that quit.
However, I am now being attacked by all three AI, even the ones I had traded with prior to them being AI controlled. I’m not going to survive (or if I do, I’ll be too weak to be competitive).
I don’t think the AI should be quite that aggressive. This 64p game is basically a write-off now.
[I should note that by “used to be”, I mean a year or so ago]
