England tends to be considered one of the more broken civilizations at this point. It's lost the ability to stack trade routes with royal navy dockyards and lost the ability to get a free unit upon capture of a city. In exchange, RNDs and cities founded upon foreign continents give a free melee unit. The RND also gives an extremely weak +4 loyalty bonus/turn. The sea dog is fairly unremarkable. The redcoats are great on foreign continents but musketmen cannot be upgraded into redcoats, which is annoying. While it's not Georgia-levels of bad, it feels lacking.
