When I declare a war on a city-state, it's at the same time both a surprise war and not a surprise war. On one hand, Tomyris dislikes me for declaring a surprise war. On the other hand, I don't get bonus movement speed when I am playing Persia. EDIT: I'll just add it right here, I also just saw Lisbon, around turn 40 on normal game speed, get at least two archers in three turns, and I'm pretty sure they got a warrior just some two or three turns earlier too. Some numbers don't quite add up there... EDIT: 2 turns later, ANOTHER archer.
