From time to time, i still play a game of CIVIII. But what i do notice that my tactics are different; so i manually adjust my workers, never cut down forests and as a grand gesture if i'm on the diplomatic tour, I become mutually alliance partners with all the other civs out there. Just because i can. Like last game, after 150 years of worldwide peace, i signed an mutual alliance with the boys and girls over the globe, and one tick later.. FRANCE DECLARED WAR TO THE GREECE. Always fun !
