Barbarians presented a challange in Civ IV from time to time especially if you used the 'raging barbarians'. In Civ V they are boring to me. I have played several games and never lost a unit to a barb. Never once have I seen any barbs take over any city from anyone. I liked how in Civ IV you really had to protect your cities, surrounding countryside, and defenseless units from them. In Civ V, big deal. They don't seem to do anything but allow you to gain XP for your units or conquer a camp for a measly "37" gold. 37 gold? Why do all of my barb camps have 37 gold? Why can't there be some randomness to this amount. It isn't that difficult to program a random number to generate! Also, the barb ships are completely useless too. I've destroyed hundreds of them and they never fight back - EVER!!!!!!!!
Please fix the Barbarians.
