      How come there is still no deep learning AI imitating real life players of various skill levels in gaming, with the difficulty limiting things like APM or giving the usual strats used by players of a certain ELO?

        Because game devs get payed fucking nothing at all and are treated terribly by management so literally every even vaguely competent AI dev is working on non-gaming projects where they get payed 100's of thousands of dollars a year with good job security.

            EB1 and SSHIP don't seem that similar to me. Isn't EB1 mostly the new government system and the regional recruitment mechanics? I do agree SS with BGR et all is cancer, thankfully plain SS is pretty good.

        I usually go watch a guide and then try to follow it until I get it right. They don't make it so that you need months/years to get good enough to beat the single player part (usually just days or weeks).

    I can agree that more games could employ sudden death mechanics, like a win counter that triggers whenever you get twice as strong as everyone else combined, aka you get 66% dominance.

    nah apparently this is normal, once you're at a point where the AI can't realistically fight back against you you've technically "won" and further playing the campaign is just pointless

    I made the mistake of forcing myself to play untill it was completely over and only thing I got from it was burnout and months without touching the game where I did this, is better to just leave when the fun is over

      Sometimes but other side too. Hoi4 communist China as Mao was restart after restart. In the end it was really simple after figuring out the right moves. Ignore everything except infantry weapons was one big one. Wasted a lot of time worrying about support equipment or artillery which don't matter with the infinite manpower.

    You can use the game to roleplay by setting arbitary restrictions. Go one step further and mod the game to give your faction roleplay attributes.

    This is Civ4 to me
    it's either have a strong early game and win
    or a medium one and get stuck in a mega war for the rest of the game
    or a weak one and just quit

      Civ 5. Playing on the hardest difficulties means you have to give up building wonders, which sucks.

      they're ultimately just like any other game

      9% of the time frustrating BS
      1% of the time genuinely unique and fun

      woah man, chill. this happens to me all the time in TW games. Eventually you break the back of the AI and the remaining 60% of the game is just boring humdrum going through the motions, so instead, I just quit.

    Nup, there exists many strategy games out there where the only compelling part of the game is experiencing every unit it has to offer. So once you've seen everything, you immediately lose interest. It just means the core gameplay itself wasn't good enough and you were just playing it for what is basically a mystery box experience. New thing make brain smile.

    It’s an eternal genre problem with all grand strategy or 4X games, they just don’t have anything to keep things interesting once the snowball hits a critical mass, yet there’s usually a pretty long distance from that to the official point of victory.

    The solution is to only pick very challenging starts and never be a tryhard, only by the end of the game you should actually be so strong that nearly no one could challenge you
