Flogging a dead horse I know, but this thread needs to stay bumped.
In my recent game (.983) as Pariden, Magnar, Resolyn, and Yithril declare on me. I advance my strong army into a town bordering mine to find 2 lairs and 4 armies of strong crag thingies. My army gets attacked three times by the bloody things which is fine, but why is it not attacking the town??!?.
I reload, send my army to another town instead, my fortress (near the above mentioned magnar border town) gets destroyed by a strong stack as above. Note that the lair this army spawned from was RIGHT NEXT TO THE MAGNAR TOWN which was not defended at all by anything serious.
Thats not fun at all.
Add to the fact that ALL of my expansion territory was somehow settled before the lairs were killed off... and any attempt to destroy those outposts was hindered by the monster mobs all the way through.
I really hope this is being looked at hard.... cos its not fun. Challenging difficulty should mean no advantages or disadvantages for the AI, like it was in GalCiv2.
