Standard America on Immortal Communitas_79. DV on Turn 365 Spoiler : Starting to see a consistent pattern. I took out Ethiopia in the Medieval and vasseled him. Then Carthage got beat up very badly and asked to be my vassal. With 2 vassals....DV is all but guaranteed. I had so many votes this game that I could have ignored both CS and embassies and still had a comfortable margin for victory. DV has become the easiest VC in the game at the moment, as 2 vassals is very easy to secure now. I am all for the voluntary vassals, but if we keep it, we are going to have to adjust vassal voting for DV (I'm still in favor of halving their votes for that purpose, or simply not allowing vassals to vote). 1) In general Freedom's tenents feel pretty good, but I do think at minimum we should swap Arsenal of Democracy and Draft Registration. AoD is not very strong, but at least at Tier 1 you have more time to let its influence bonus work, at Tier 2 the influence is way too low (its probably still weak at tier 1 but then at least it has a chance). Meanwhile Draft Registration is amazing, I would still consider it at Tier 2. 2) I like the voting trading I can do with my vassals but the deal values are too low. They are offer me vote trades at a mere 4 GPT....which at point in the game is basically free. I'm all about a discount, but that is too low. 3) DoFs are a lot more dynamic now. I have enemies giving me one, taking it away 30 turns later, and then later on they come back to the table. Its good to see that late game politics are more dynamic, as that more mirrors real life. 4) I believe the AI lost some bonuses recently and its showing. I have become a very comfortable immortal player, I may even go to Deity next game, whereas before I was a 50/50 immortal player at best.
