Yes! I’ve noticed this recently too. Just had an AI get to 18 cards. Had 3:1 port. 7 rolled and they discarded like 8 bricks. It ruins a game when a real person leaves and they’re replaced by essentially a bag of coleslaw.
I agree and have pointed out this bug in the past. The response I got was "it's because you don't have the requested resource or don't have any cards" - which is BS. There are plenty of times when I don't have the resource or don't have any cards when I _DO _ see the trade window!
@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...
