Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Game slows down at the worst times! Played for an hour several times , and the game shuts down. It’s a joke ! Don’t spend!!!!!

This game is very good until you start playing against the harder Non-player computer player. The designers have resorted to making you lose 10-1 battles against “harder” NPCs instead of investing in making the NPCs make better decisions in the game. I have had matches against the computer where I’ll have a territory with 9 troops lose to 1 troop 11 times in a row. The probability of that actually happening in real life is slim.
