Friends, I have a humble request for you. Could someone briefly summarize the major things that have changed in the last 8 months or so of patches? I played Civ5 a bunch when it first came out and got maybe the first 1 or 2 patches. At that time the dominant strategy seemed to be building tons of 2-3 pop cities close together to abuse the maritime city state and per city happiness mechanics. I called it quits after that resolving to come back later after they fixed the game. From what I understand, they've toned down the CS mechanic quite a bit, as well as further penalizing unhappiness. Have there been any other important changes? What are the dominant strategies nowadays? I will definitely go back and peruse the patch notes, but I'm looking for a quick summary.
