I thought of a strange thing: what about having at least one AI empire in every MP game? Mixed AI and human players would certainly make things interesting!

I think AI rarely has been as much fun to play against than human player, recommend putting more stuff in the multiplayer instead of AI.

I have to admit I am amazed that there is such a large preference for AIs. I have never found an AI that was half as enjoyable as a real (human) opponent. Please tell me which 4X games have such great AIs?

I think its more a case of: the vast majority of us dont have enough spare time to commit to an MP turn based strategy game. So we have no real choice but to play SP. So we want a good AI over human players.

Yeah, unless there was a way to streamline MP, I think most ppl will go with SP, as the polls indicated.
