which means inflated xp values that people didn't earn and champs/ Sovs are way higher level than they should be ?
yes exactly, there is another problem here but its minor
combat ratings arent all balanced, so some monsters are seen as way weaker than they really are
ai shouldnt even try to attack a dark wizard in the first place, this is another issue but its easy to fix
but then, once ai attacks this monster it sees as doable he SHOULDNT be able to kill them
but ais can instead kill them np like said above, so yes, ai sovs get A LOT of undeserved xp also emptying the map for us players since unless we cheat too with autoresolve we arent able to kill everything at their speed
as a partial compensation the low rating for these guys make ai gains a bit less xp but anyway being able to stomp early make ai sov too soon unkillable and snowballing
