Agreed.

Anyways, I'm really surprised about the overwhelming support for the taunting AI: 11 votes, all in favor of having taunting AIs in campaigns, colony games, and multiplayer!

If the taunts are not made of the "funny that lasts" kind, I'm probably going to get bored of them soon and consequently find them annoying.

Using old (British) English seems to be one of the longest-lasting, but it's probably out-of-place here?

Funny?  No, these AIs are out to get you.  They're not going to make you laugh, they're going to threaten you.

Well, then, I say no... But not that it would affect anything  :P

So, wait... You actually want the AI to be lame?

Keep in mind the campaigns are a bit darker than the original ones.

Depends on how you see things as lame, I guess.

I don't like the AIs to be talkative, unless they can entertain me, not annoy me. To be honest, I'm not quite fond of people who use taunts during games... Pointing out flaws is slightly different.

But, as I said, it's not like I can make much of a difference, can I?
