    When I read this I thought someone revived a thread from 2007, but nope, 2 days old.

    Siege weapons in cities aren't actually as good as you're saying. They have a bonus attacking cities, but vs units their ranged strength is low for their era. Even if you just have 4-5 longswords...

    Trade agreements are still broken since the October patch, so you can only play on good faith terms. It's very strange to release a complete edition without fixing such an obvious (and simple) bug...

    Thanks guys. Well I can't replicate it today. Thinking back I possibly was trying to gift pathfinders in which case I guess it's working as intended. (Yes, via city state menu, no yellow hex). So...
  5. [beta] Cannot gift units to city states

    As titled. It happened in a couple of games so I'm guessing it's easy to replicate. If not let me know and I'll set up a save.

    People will gradually adjust and judge city utility more harshly. Previously conquest was too powerful because you could literally puppet everything. There was a happiness penalty but it was easy...

    I see the issue if you're a loyal steam customer, but the fact is these days there's always a deal on somewhere and it's a risk to pay full price even on release day. I got the same 30% deal from...

    I only played once as England but found it worked well. The unit maintenance is extremely low and they build quickly so you can really get involved around the Mediterranean.

    When you look at steam stats it inspires confidence about new content being made. It's probably the safest and most lucrative project they can have their devs working on (if it's done right of...

    Basically just to get a lot better. Say 2-3 games to learn how everything works, another few to devise your strategies and become effective at implementing them, then after that crank up the...

    ^Agree, just let your neighbouring AIs build cool stuff for you. Armies are cheap and more versatile than wonders. You capture a bunch of things that ultimately make you really strong even if it's...

    ^Yeah I'll put in another vote for auto-cycling off. You get your attack lined up on one screen and then it's easy to click-and-move them all without disruptions. After that I use the dot key to...

    I always thought this was mainly user error, until I came across a machine the other day we just couldn't get working. Every turn it disconnected. It's no doubt some difference in config but it's...

    Just think of military as an investment rather than a distraction. If you keep them active then they'll pay for themselves inevitably. Works for me anyway.

    Thanks for this thread. I somehow missed the bonus on catapults as well. I've been spamming composite bows for the last 6 months. Perhaps archers are still better if they have a lot of units, but...

    Probably a lot of people do this: buy barracks everywhere, build heroic epic in a high hammer city, then sell barracks everywhere except the epic city.

    Just think of inquisitors as single-shot great prophets. And yes they have a specific religion according to where they were trained.

    Well yeah at least try a 6-player map to see if it's still slow. Definitely shouldn't be.

    There's a good chance it's overheating and throttling everything back. Might be time to open it up and...

    Early civil service if you have rivers, and if you go tradition the early aqueducts are amazing too (you don't need to unlock engineering to get them). Also stay happy while the cities are in the...

    You gotta have some kind of committed strategy other than just seeing what comes up each turn. If it gets to the point where one of the other Civs has 50 cities you've left it way too late to keep...

    1. I always have domination as my default mindset because conquest advances you faster to the other victory conditions. Basically the point when I switch is when I...
