A lot of people say they find the AI rather tricky. I found this at first, but after some reading around, and watching a couple of replays, I seem to have the measure of it.

So, in the spirit of whipping the AI, and because so many demos are based on older versions of the demo, I upload mine. The first is based on Hard, while the others are from the latest demo which doesn't give you a choice of difficulty.

Replay 1 was my second ever World War. After being trounced the first time, I finished all the training and scenarios and came back as the FNU to show the AI who's boss. Not a transport in sight here. Recorded using original demo.

Replay 2 is game four or five. I started trying to use transports, and after making a mess of it in seconds in a couple of games, finally used them to good effect here. This and all later recordings are from the latest demo. This demo also highlights how the current AI can screw itself by being too chicken to invade neutrals when it should.

Replay 3 would be game seven, another attempt as the FNU after losing game six, and finding I just do so much better in the south east corner.

Replay 4 is game eight, my latest, where I finally win from outside the south east corner, as the phantom league :)

Hope these prove useful, or simply entertaining to watch :)
