Is it just me, or do barb cities seem to occur much more often in Warlords then in Vanilla Civ IV? I usually don't mind an increased number, but sometimes it gets ridiculous. Playing on Monarch, I have had times where I have been forced to exterminate barb cities before I can put a third city down. In my latest game, three popped up directly outside my borders, taking all my possible third city sites. Some people might say it is good to have to fight your way out, but when I have to Quechua-rush barbarian cities, I think it is going to far. Has anyone else noticed an unusually high number of barbarian cities in Warlord? Thoughts? Opinions? Before anyone asks: Fractal, standard size map, standard number of civs.
