Seriously, the AI is awful. It's especially bad when AI replaces a human person who leaves a game. The AI just sits on resources and stops using them, or refuses to trade, or makes awful trades, or targets people who aren't poised to win. I've paid for the game in the past but refuse to pay for this iteration until the AI gets fixed.
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...
