I really hope they fix the AI in this game. How many times have you had a single square of unclaimed land in your territory and the computer will make a b-line for it even though they should not be able to see it. You then have to basically threaten them to leave and they get upset at you.

Also, how about the computer rushing for resources like saltpetre or oil before they should know about them?
