sure, but if 'players in general' don't know what they are doing in a game: enter your personal favourite RTFM/get a clue statement here. (though, don't read the manual since it's been horribly out of date for some time) Anywhom, if you don't think a wonder is worth building, then don't build it. It's your game, and if you think it now sucks, but don't expand your view to include the mechanics around the wonder, that's your issue and your game will suffer for it. This isn't pong. The game has overlapping mechanics that need some understanding. Sure, right now, I can't tell you if dropping it by two cpt is 'balance' or if it's still as good as before, but once the patch comes out, I'll find that out. That's why my game won't suffer. not yet. the question has been posed to 2kGreg and we're waiting for a response (tomorrow afternoon likely the earliest time).
