Hey. New player here. I have seen a potential problem that I’d like to discuss; perhaps it’s just me not understanding the game well enough.
I started one of your beginner games and 7 others joined in. So far, so good.
Well, a week into the game; most people have dropped out and are being controlled by the Computer. Fine. I can deal with that. Not fun, but it’s a game, so continue on.
Except one thing. Now all the computer players hate me and they are all WAY above me in tech. I have 25-30 points per turn in research and each of the computer players have anywhere from 2 to 5 points in research. And yet, I am WAY behind in every category. WTF? Plus, I am now hated by all of the computer players (some of whom were previously allies) and they refuse to trade any of this new glorious tech with a poor human player.
This is really making the game non-enjoyable… and, to be honest, does not really seem very realistic.
Am I just that bad a player? Missing something basic? Or is the game just that ‘human-racist’?
