No, guys, I say serious. AI in Legends weaker, than in Return of Shakturi. It's enough for me to find 1 (one) derelict (cruiser/destroyer or even frigate) and I can destroy neighbor spaceport, set blockade and wait for training enough troops, which conquer me an enemy capital. Even without cheater ships it's more easier to crash enemy, than deal with it.
I also forgot to say about broken diplomacy. Now for me it has one purpose - to declare war. Create alliances is nearly impossible in Legends and there is need for it. I NEVER saw situation, when a few empires created alliances and kicked me together in Legends. In Shakturi it was very rarely, but was.
I also forget about useless (in my opinion) optimized designs. Very useful for human players, but useless for AI players. There are no surprises in game with this feature.
