So I got challenged by Fippy to get arguments against the three gold-buildings here. I argue that they're much closer to viability than he does. So here it goes. Would you build Markets, Grocers and Banks if these changes where made: - Building wealth used the vanilla formula - No failgold from wonders, missionaries etc - No overflow gold (current BTS patch, but changed compared to BUG) - AI had the same willingness to pay cash as you have (you can't exploit the deity-AIs huge cash reserves). From my point of view there's no doubt that these changes would make the MGB-buildings more than viable rather than the "maybe in the capital" fringe they're now. So if anyone wants to make the argument that the MGB-buildings still would be too expensive I'd love to hear them.
