AI expanding too fast

Published on Wednesday, June 5, 2024 By RancidWine In Sins II Feedback

All in all I'm absolutely loving the game, I think you guys have done a great job. Missing my Advent girls though, so looking forward to their release this summer. Sins of a Solar Empire was one of my main games that I played growing up so it has a special place in my nostalgic heart.

My only complaint so far is that the AI tends to expand really fast (even on easy and with defensive AI), snatching up planets and asteroids left and right without really building them up. As someone who tends to expand slower I'm often finding myself pinned in expansion wise by allies if Im playing with an AI team. While not game breaking, I am finding it off-putting in regards to adding AI teams in current gameplay. 

I don't know if this is an issue that has been brought up yet or not. I still play the original Sins and find its AI level of expansion to be far more enjoyable and manageable play wise.
