Forts are weak right now, and they should either be made stronger, or have all yields stripped from them. forts start with 0 yields. 1 at chemistry 1 at military science 3 at stealth and electronics (information era) The last 2 come so late that they don’t really affect the game, so functionally forts have 1 yield in renaissance any 2 yields in industrial and later. there are currently 1 policy and 1 wonder that boost forts: Imperialism: 21 Menin gate: 22 There used to be an additional bonus: Autocracy: 3 so, why, if forts are going to fall so desperately behind in yields, do they even have yields on them at all? Why is there a wonder and a policy that boost them if their yields are so atrocious that no city will ever work them? I am of the opinion that forts, with heavy investment in player choices, should be made viable, but failing that, these bonuses only serve to create confused messaging as to what forts are designed to do. proposal: add back the 3 autocracy boost, and add +1 to forts and citadels at Steel. Maybe another boost in modern is warranted, but baby steps.
