I absolutely love how instead of promoting the game and getting more people to start playing Battle Dawn, they added AI colonies to make it look like there are more people playing. the image of population is always better than true population. you guys have my vote on that
It was actually put into place to give you more income and things to fight over. Not to bluff numbers.
It's to make the game more fun by adding more conquers -- instead of paying for asian kids to place and never play again, we get to focus on real newbs.
The sarcasm really helps the game, though.
