The bot trashing Provinces for no real positive effect has long been a staple of AI complaints:

http://forum.shuffleit.nl/index.php?topic=1596.0

Judging from the low volume in this subforum in recent times many others may have reached the same conclusion as I did: The devs are aware of the problem (http://forum.shuffleit.nl/index.php?topic=1700.msg6000) but unless an update mentions that the AI has been improved, new mentions of the AI's 'suboptimal plays' seems pointless, because they tell the devs nothing new.

The province trashing bug was supposedly fixed though in Version 1.2.1. This is probably a Remake specific issue?
