Coastal cities were never intended to a be defensive locations that you hold against an enemy navy with land units, and that's what I'm seeing examples of as evidence for the need for change. Which suggests to me that not having any ships left is the core problem, not how city defenses perform against naval units. Perhaps that's not a good representation of the situation, and if so I encourage people to take screenshots to clarify what they are talking about. If ironclads and cruisers need a nerf I'm happy for that to take place. All I want is to make sure we don't create more issues by misdiagnosing the problem.
