please share your observations
It occurs to me that, by and large, I tend to see the same endgame players in a lot of my games. In the interests of empiricism, then, I figured it might be interesting to see how other people's experiences mesh with mine. I'd like to sort the different AI players into three categories: those that usually survive awhile (unless of course *I* kill them, which'd skew the results) and build up a large territory, those that usually die early and ugly, and those that vary from game to game. In my experience it breaks down like this:
AI's that survive awhile/do well in my games (excluding my own interference):
AI's that vary from game to game too much to tell:
Arceans (particularly hard to tell because I'm usually playing them)
AI's that usually die early unless I prop them up:
How does it usually break down for you?
