Hey there Stellaris community! I'm fairly new to the game and thought that game might be good. But now I've started over the fourth time already and I'm just frustrated by it. Why is the AI so horribly made? It doesn't matter which Ethos they have, they have all the same based on size. I'm tying to play a militarist Xenophobe but I don't get what I'm supposed to do, to actually have a better military than any AI empire. My research is slow, I can't even concentrate on military research because those stupid cards are randomly selected and no matter how much I go into resources and build ships by the time I have around 2.7 my enemy comes by with double the fleetsize crushing everything I have effortlesly. I even used cheats to study the AI empires and found out they literally just get everything gifted to them. They don't even have half the stations I do, their colonies aren't even fully developed but hey "Here have a 4k fleet to destroy your neighbor, dude." What is this nonsense? Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong here? Because Stellaris is unplayable for me right now, because as I said. I play like a madman trying to keep a stable economy and a big flleet and get almost nothing out of it. My research is slow. I can't colonize all my planets. I almost regret buying the game, seeing how unfair it is.
