    Has anyone else been noticing that units you gift to city states don't show up at all sometimes? I don;t know if it's just me or not but I'll gift a city state about 8 units of various types and maybe 3 will show up at the city state in question. Is this is a known bug or am I just not seeing them somewhere?

    Gifting to many units in a turn seems to work badly pre-G&K too.

    I wouldn't gift more than 2-3 at a time to them because of it.

    Yeah, also noticed pre-G&K that if you gifted a continual stream of units to a CS, some would disappear (I assume the CS disbanded them for economic/support reasons since another had just shown up).

    It is nice though, that if you are playing as Austria and you need just a little top-off to get a city-state alliance in order to DM, you can just hand over a few units. Then you get them back after the DM.

    Ya Ive gifted lots, and over time I notice that the units Ive sent have since been disbanded. In your case I guess they immediately disband as they go into the red.

    Yep i have also noticed that gifting them units is useless now and mind you the 2nd human player playing with me gifted the same city states and it kept his units but all of mine "never to be seen"....

    2 Influence per unit to maximum of 6 (after 3 units you get nothing)

    This sucks for trying to keep a city-state alive by loading them up with military units without declaring war on whoever attacks them :(
