For those choosing to play without city-states, how are you finding AI and balance? I haven't come up with objective findings yet, but subjectively I'm seeing some patterns. If you'd like to offer your thoughts, choose quote and response under each question. I'll add a post later to not influence conclusions. * Do you think you're seeing: more, less, the same, city spam? * Do you think the AI is: more, less, the same, in aggression towards you? * Do you think the AI is: better, worse, the same, in the long-run (ie. not having City-States to lean on)? * Do YOU, play a: more, less, the same, balanced game not being able to exploit City-States?
