While I really like many aspects of this new game, one thing I don't much like is the weakness of AI nations. They are an absolute pushover with their 1 recruit per province. Why aren't they stronger, like the AI nations in S1914, which require a fair bit of strength to take down?
It's just too easy IMO to get early expansion with such weak AI countries.
I agree!! This is a big challenge to the team of developers.
