Diplomats don’t seem to have much value. Even for a CV, I would rather use spies to steal GWs for 99% of the game than use the % modifier for having a diplomat with that civ. There are buildings to block/slow down spies, but you can block diplomats completely by going to war, so it seems like they should have more value. it seems like the only real value diplomats have is levelling up your spies safely (which you can also just do by putting them in a city-state) and the last 20 or so turns of a DV game. With a Diplomat victory, you switch all your spies to diplomats for vote trading and for the +1 vote in the WC for a DV from globalization (assuming the entire planet is not at war with you because you’re going to win) maybe diplomats could give +1 vote in the WC from the start, and have that increased to +2 at globalization? what are some other ways we could make diplomats more ‘competitive’ with spies?
