i noticed that in patch 18.104.22.168 beta fleets are automated in a very strange way:
1) AI constantly recreates my fleets with a higher number in name, 30 minutes of game play at x4 and my fleets are name like 20th-30th strike forces, but i have 4 or 6 of them only, in 22.214.171.124 patch i had fleets of 1st-8th number at that time.
2) I applied a policy which makes a fleet size of 20 and SF size of 10, but all my fleets size of 20 are called "xxth Strike force" , in 126.96.36.199 AI never mistaken a name for a ship group.
3) in recent patches AI always puts strongest ships in fleets, mostly all of my fleets were solely a capital class with a few carriers. Now it groups all ship classes in fleet even in endgame my fleets have escorts and destroyers with cruisers in them.
4) in early game i noticed an AI adds a random transport in fleet when it tries to invade a planet during a war. then, after a transport is empty AI removes that transport from fleet and adds new with troops, never seen that happens before - so i dont know if its a feature or an abnormal behavior, but i once saw an AI create a Fleet-group of only transports and after invasion disbanded entire group almost immidiatly.
Not a very much problem but somehow its very irritating that my fleets get randomly renamed and get mistakenly name a strike force.
