So this isn't really specific to Gathering Storm, but I think maybe there may have been some changes - not sure. Anyway... I really HATE the whole city loyalty mechanic. I play on King difficulty and I have found it's basically impossible to capture an enemy city. I mean... I can take the city, but then I almost always have about 3 turns before it rebels. And there's practically nothing I can do about it. Even if I garrison a unit and send a governor to the city, it wont get there in 3 turns. And just sending them there usually ups the time to maybe 5 turns and unless my military is like 1000 times more powerful than the AI player, there's no way I can take enough cities fast enough to be able to hold anything. So I've taken to just razing everything I can and then settling the land with my own settlers, because there seems to be no other choice. Am I the only one? Am I missing something?
