I know it's great that Rome 2 is being patched with new content especially in the campaign area. But seeing this problem still exist, then what's the point of adding new campaign features if 80% of your campaign game play is playing land battles with the AI and this mostly the result of it? It's quite irrelevant if you ask me, and it's not enough for a paid DLC which only adds so little to the base game.
So what's the point of praising these devs? They didn't fix anything. Sure there is this new politics and stuff, but that's it? That still not enough, it's still the same concept. They just revamped the Politics UI and lets you decide to become an empire in the late game. Haven't they even thought of importing some features from Attila? Like family tree, unit formations, etc? I thought they said they wanted re address on what they think was missing with Rome 2? After so many years, this is the only thing they came up with? A lackluster politics update? How about fixing the AI? Adding more battle formations that we have never experienced before in TW series? Optimizing the game just like in Warhammer? More diplomatic actions like in Europ Universalis?
I'm gonna say it again, and again. I have not experienced this kind of terrible AI since Rome1/Medieval2. If CA's going to add features, they should at least fix their own mess with it.
