So I wasn't paying attention and one civ spammed my city with his prophet while I had world religion passed of my religion. Of course this is extremely dumb and would never happen playing with people who aren't insane, but the A.I. does this constantly. ( This is why autosave is mandatory for this game IMO, too much stupid stuff like this ). So now I found a prophet from the other civ that has the religion I want. I sent 10 units to circle him to herd him to my city, but he's just sitting there now, not moving. Just awful. It seems that prophets are coded to target a city and never stop until they reach it. So this one was targetting another city when I blocked his path, now he will basically idle forever. Same thing when I set up blocker units. Whatever prophet was targetting my city will linger around that city until the end of the game waiting for me to move a unit. If you move a unit and open a hole, you instantly see that prophet start moving towards the hole. So is there some kind of way to get the AI to spread their religion to you with their missionaries? I'm friends and have open borders with the civ I want, but he's just not spreading to me.
