Hi, I really think Monarchy should be buffed to compete with Theocracy and Republic. Republic is also a bit too good in the early game even in war! The extra commerce boost from Republic allows for happier people and more military. I think Monarchy should be buffed to Free units: 4 Per Town: 2 Per City: 2-> 4 Unit Cost: 3 -> 2 Democracy and Republic are also the same in terms of unit support. I think it should be changed so there is a difference. Democracy in civ 3 was good for making a huge army while Republic was good for keeping a small army. Democracy Free Units: 4 -> 0 Per Town: 3 -> 0 Per City: 3 -> 2 Unit Cost: 4 -> 2 Now Democracy is probably better if you want to field a huge army, around 4-5 military units per city. Republic Free Units: 4 -> 6 Per Town: 3 -> 2 Per City: 3 Unit Cost: 4 This is a slight nerf to Republic, but a really small nerf since it probably only affects the units supported by around 10 or so units in late game, which is about only 40 gold.
