Just thinking out loud here. I like the new Era Score system. It's fun and adds a new dynamic. However, I also feel like a big opportunity was missed with it. There isn't really any way to negatively impact a rival civ's Era Score. As a player, that means that any points I get in the pool are "safe." This is also why it's a bad thing to get too many points in a single era. There's no way to get with a debuff that takes some of those points away. Some things I wish took era score away were: Losing a city (medium hit) Losing your capital (big hit) Getting beat to a wonder (small hit) Losing an emergency Spy killed in action (small hit) Losing Suzerainship during a war There could be other things. I just wish there was a little more danger once the bar was filled up that someone could do something to you to knock you back. It would make creating a "buffer" of extra Era Score points handy. And allow for some epic backstabbings by flipping other player's Era Score points negative just as the era closes.
