Default Have you ever been beat by the AI?

This is just a poll to see if you've ever been beat by the AI. I've played the AI a few times now and haven't got beat yet. Hardest setting I've played is 3 planet start with high difficulty and low bonus. I'm about to start a game with high and medium settings. If I get that easy then I'll move onto a high and high setting. Even though I hate playing the AI I do it for when I'm waiting on my files from PBW to come. It passes the time quicker. So... have you ever been beat by the AI?

Yeah sure does. I didn't even think about that for a question. Too bad I can't edit the poll now.

I'll admit, the AI beat me once. i was playing the Terrans and the star was about to go nova by round 10. So I built a massive number of colonizers and transports....

I fled directly into an enemy fleet and got killed so many times I had died from dying!

I finished a solo Gold game with the Victory Condition "Score = 1M" in 5th place out of 9. The winner was the TDM-Modpack Ukra-Tal, who had triggered Mega-Evil Empire more than two years before the game ended.

If I would use the Victory Condition "Score =1M" to "Score =3M" I'd probably lose. I usually am way behind for the first few years. Then by mid-game to late-game I'm kicking butt.

I've never been beat by the AI, but then I've only finished one game against the AI (and not many more against humans!), and that was with Version 1.02 when the AI was REALLY ####!

Like half the people here have NEVER been beat by the AI???

riiiiiiiiiggggggggghhhhhhtttt

what level do you all play on? Warm mushy soup level?

I only play on highest difficulty, highest bonus. That setting can be a challenge, especially if you start the game with a couple of paranoid AI races nearby...

Default Re: Have you ever been beat by the AI?

I used to play high difficulty, high bonus, large galaxy, medium or high number of AIs. I took 1st place by no later than turn 10 (usually on turn 1, but not every time). I never played the AI on any setting lower than high bonus and difficulty. I never finished a game against them, because it always ended up with me owning 50% or more of the galaxy and mopping up all the AIs at once. It was boring. Now, I just play humans.
