@Rumpelstilzchen I have only had one real player do this so far to me. I had the fewest points, the worst numbers (at least the way the die were rolling that game), yet this one player would rob me whenever they rolled a 7 or played a knight. It definitely was not fun to get picked on when I was already way behind.
I was just kicked out of 3 games in a row. I don't have an issue with my internet connection. I know this because I'm constantly connected to another server for work. I tried to play, while taking a break, in the seafarers tournament and it's impossible. No wonder the other two games I did play earlier had one player exit. It can't be this common - there is clearly something wrong with the catan servers. I was also like you -- got destroyed by AI in a game someone apparently left, but I suspect that they are not "leaving" on their own now...
Sometimes it works and sometimes I get the original offer the AI was offering me (instead of the changed offer that it accepted).
This mostly happens to me when I ask the AI for two or even three of that resource. It accepts the offer sometimes! And sometimes I gives it to me. But sometimes after it's accepted my offer to give me 2 of that resource, it only gives me 1 of that resource!
CatanUniverse, please contact me if you have any further questions.
@charliesphon The trading choices of the AI are totally flawed, and it mostly rejects you, if you accept the offer the AI made. Therefore, I turn off the trade menu whenever it is the AI´s turn. It is just not worth the trouble. And I never play single player, it ain´t fun.
@MonkeyZ I have the same impression. The AI seems to target the weakest player most of the times. It has no strategy of winning, and still does not accept trades that are mutually beneficial. But during it´s own turn, it suggests the most absurd deals.
@Stroom Even a bit of time fixing minor bugs and/or small features would certainly go a long way to increase confidence (although I know many bugs have deep implications, and many platforms makes bug fixes a challenge) If Katan.io is web based, that's a more focused platform (I'll check it out!)
There was NO strategic advantage to the weird road placement. THIS DID NOT HAPPEN IN PC....so WHY is it happening here?
Ha ha, don't expect me to explain the AI. I was just tossing out the little bits I've heard. It seems to miss obvious moves all the time, or make questionable moves that unbalance the game. Purportedly they are working on AI improvements, at least in terms of the trading difficulties, so hopefully they are reworking most of the AI logic.
