My dear friends! I was extremely delighted when it was changed that Cities can secede much earlier (and not just mid-late game, after Ideologies), even more so when it was introduced that they can turn into City-States after a while. Since I haven't played VP in months, and I've just 'returned home' (it truly feels like it lol) I 'vent been able to test out the new local Happiness mechanics (which I think is awesome!!!). Please allow me to ask a couple of questions before I jump into this awesomeness: can Cities still rebel and secede from your empire? if so, what are the requirements for it? (a certain amount of Unhappiness threshold, or Unhappy for too long? other?) do Rebels still spawn and you have to deal with them? is Ideology happiness-pressure still a thing? what are the requirements for a seceded City to turn into a City-State? (if it still exists) Thank you very much!
