I'm curious to know if people are finding their game well balanced particularly regarding science/culture/espionage/gold. I'm asking because I'm playing a MP game with my wife and we both have never lowered research rate under 100% in the entire game until now (25% of the total turns) and we still get from +80 to +400 gold per turn. I don't think we're running our empires incredibly well because we both are on the lowest positions in the score list; and I see other empires are also gaining a LOT of gold per turn. The problem is that this thing makes useless any effort on science vs gold balancing which on the contrary should be normal in every civ game. I never have to adjust anything, I simply keep my research rate at max and I still earn a lot of gold per turn. Is it happening to me only? Or is it normal in every game with C2C?
