The Twilight Struggle Beta A.I.

The beta for Twilight Struggle on Steam recently updated, and the new version of the game includes a rudimentary artificial intelligence which can act as your opponent. Previously, the game required you to find an opponent via online matchmaking, so this is a big deal for those anti-social types who’d rather wage a potential nuclear war against a faceless robotic enemy.

This video is the first game I played against the new AI. As a note, the developers released this with the caveat that the AI is extremely raw, and that the games against it will be nothing compared to a real, human opponent. Is this true? Does it matter? You can find out in the video!
