From what I recall, the German AI is hardcoded not to attack the Maginot Line.
I last played about eight months ago as Japan, and the AI wasted upwards of 200k soldiers attacking two of my mountain forts in Italy.
Either way, question stands whether the AI will be able to manage the new resources and combat mechanics, or if we'll see a repeat of Stellaris' latest patch where the AI didn't know how to use the new mechanics and is flooded with free resources in an attempt to compensate for its incompetence.
Every time I rely on the AI to suicide itself on entrenched/fortified troops, it doesn't, so there is some kind of calculation going on beyond just "lvl 10 forts, do not attack", etc. I have had a few games go awry(mostly attempts at "My Ships Don't Lie") because my plan was to let the AI exhaust itself and then walk over them, and the AI didn't attack at all.I'd have to disagree, a fair few times I've seen them push through the Maginot, I expect there are various factors that more often than not make them not willing to attack, though it remains a possibility.
