So there are some wonders out there that are situational; they're only worth building under certain circumstances, but when those circumstances come up, they pay off bigtime (Great Lighthouse on an Archipelago map? Can you say economy boost with every new city? Because I can! ICS lives!). Then there are other wonders that are either useless even in the situation they're designed for, or are designed for situations no one ever wants to find themselves in in the first place. So what wonders do you think fall into that category, and what would you do to improve them? In my mind, the four worst offenders are: Chichen Itza: 25% defense bonus? If you have 500 hammers to throw away on glorified Walls, then you probably won't be fighting a defensive war Angkor Wat: Fantastic wonder for when you're running a Priest economy. Too bad nobody does. Shwedegon Paya: You mean that for only 450 hammers I could unlock religious civics that I'm already only a couple of techs away from anyway? Oh Firaxis, you shouldn't have! The Hagia Sophia: Hey guys, since Serfdom is such a powerful Civic, what if we could spend a mere 550 hammers to be able to do the same thing, without having a pesky turn of Anarchy? Overpowered, you say? Well, that's just the way the game is played! I have absolutely no idea what would make Chicken Pizza better. Maybe barbeque sauce. Mmmmm, barbeque sauce... Angkor Wat is a tough call too. Adding in a free Priest or two might make it nicer, but unless your plan for victory relies on swarming your enemy with legions of Great Prophets, that might actually make life worse. Adding a hammer bonus to all State Religion buildings seems like a great idea... Only the Apostolic Palace already does that, and more. Shwedegon Paya: Make it earlier. Forget the requirements of Aesthetics and Meditation, just make it available with Meditation. This would make it much more attractive. Being able to run Pacifism for early GP pops, running FR to get an early research bonus... It wouldn't be as good as the Mids, but it would certainly be attractive. Not to mention the fact that it would make the religious tech tree a more viable option. Hagia Sophia: Free engineers. The Great Library of the hammer world. I've been in the Hagia Sophia. It's a huge feat of engineering. Engineers would be coming from miles around to look at it. How many free Engineers would be a question for balance, but that would make this wonder a viable option for me. But this isn't just about me! I want to hear your opinions, too!
