First of all I think your on advanced algorithms if the krynn AI is powerful, The krynn rocked in dark avatar, but sucked in twilight of the arnor. This is what I'm saying they come up with a good idea to play a AI, but they keep taking a good race, and dummying him down. I would like them to stop doing that. I like what they did to the thalans, iconians, and torians, but I would like them to have left the dread arcens, terrans, and torians alone. The iconians should've left the challenging from the dread, while using the espionage. This is what they didn't keep for dark avatar. In twilight they raised the difficulty on the torians, thalans, iconians, and yor, but lowered the krynn, altarians, drengin, korath, and drath. I would like to mention I didn't like how they took the espionage capability from the krynn and iconians. Also the krynn lost their influence capability. I would like to see them to stop this. Keep improving, but don't lower other races.
The reason the krynn would be so powerful. Is a really high morale bonus. The torians is because of the super breeder. Every race has different abilities, and unlike avatar they know how to use them.
The next thing, it would be very annoying if every time I seen a specific thing on the game I reset the game. This would be a self induced problem though. I would recommend not doing that. This reminds me of when in civilization 3, you could trade for contact with a person. Before the invention of the computer this would be impossible, especially in 3000 BC. There's one bug from civilization I would like to bring up. I actually missed this in civilization 4. Another bug I would like to bring up is not allowing you to go into other country borders. In civilization 3 you were allowed to threaten which this is realistic. In civilization 4 you couldn't even move in without permission or war. If one of you guys were right, and this were a bug. All you guys thought this bug was doing was letting you know what the AI was researching, first if the AI didn't let you know what it was researching it would still research without you knowing, second there is a better point you can actually contact the race you have not met only from the initial contact screen. The next screen is a regular diplomacy, because you haven't met this guy there is no other way to contact him till you actually meet him. If this person is on the other side of the galaxy, and has things your neighbors don't have. You can become really powerful. I hope they don't get rid of this bug, but stop resetting the game when you come across this bug.
