I still love RTW, but my biggest issue is where the AI places their ships on the strategic map. There seems to be no reason behind it, and they divide their fleet into small units. This is especially seen in European Wars where AI European nations have capital ships all across the globe doing nothing, while their nation is blockaded. I just fought a war with Germany against France, where the French never had more than a handful of ships in Northern Europe and allowed me to blockade France even though we had similar fleet sizes. Their fleet in their home area was so small, they declined most battles. There is also the issue that the AI never really challenges you if you play as the US or Japan. These issues existed in RTW, but they seem even worse in RTW2. Again, I still love the game, but the AI should be able to see where their fleet would be most effective.
