How are the gold values for base tribute being calculated, i.e. what is X?I don’t think the gold tribute by itself is the problem, maybe it does need a touch of a nerf to 2.5x instead of 3x, or some kind of floor so you can’t get 40 gold tribute wjtb your starting units, but reverting it all the way back will just put us back to lame tributes.
1250 / CS @ T170 is amazing, especially for a warmonger. There is certainly a share of luck to reliably tribute from 3+ CSs, but having 2 to farm tribute from is generally achievable at this point in the game in my experience. 2500 and 1250 every ~20 turns (or less) reliably at this point in the game is just too much IMO.
Don't get me wrong though, I like most of the changes. The reduction of CS resilience for alliances/friends in particular makes the midgame much more consistent and it feels less RNG.
I'm trying out a few other warmonger games before it's definitive, just an early read.
