Yes, Joram, that is where I am going. Even when giving the AI every advantage in CoG, it was still easy to beat.
My first CoG game, I played as Sweden in the grand campaign, and I ended as the victor, which was somewhat disappointing.
AI is never as good as a human, we all know this. However, the games that hold my interest longest, are the ones where I can not beat the AI, right out of the box playing my first game. It takes some learning and fine tuning on my part to be able to win. Additionally, that are some games where you can tilt things in favor of the AI enough, so the AI can be beat you, even when you are seasoned. These are the games I end up coming back to play, even years later.
My hope is that the AI in FoF is better than CoG, but I am certain it will be the same. So the next question, can you give the AI enough advantage to be able to beat a human, without the AI grossly cheating?
well, one thing to remember, I have been playing this for a while now, so, I know when to stop and when to move forward
I think the AI is good enough to surprise you
I would counter, that when you get to play the game, play as the CSA and move on Washington on the first turn, if the ANV can win on the first turn, I think it may be seen as being weak, but for what I have seen, I do not even try
but you can always try different settings, and power rateings, and I am playing on First Sgt, and have richer production turned on (both of those would make major changes to how the game plays)
and, to be fair, I pulled a Corps out of the ANV and sent it north, that has made a big change to letting me get onto the Off, with out those 40,000 men, I do not think I could of done what I have done
