    I suppose it is kind of advertising. There have been discussions about this recently. You've been smart enough to come here for answers.

    This is why I've lobbied to have more of the extra events made core, because for every user that asks a question about it or finds out there are 10+ who don't know and have a sub-optimal experience. The more balanced events added into the main mod the better imo.

    I would very much like more events be included in the core VP mod.

    MP is still unstable. Using modpack linked above, got desync at turn ~20 with host crashing in progress.

    Really happy to see this, Travel Ban was both really strong and one of those things that AIs love and is very easy to pass/difficult to repeal so it's good to see the effect weakened.

    Gazebo, something I've noticed the last four games is... no runaways. Based on the sampling, I think we can say there's definite progress in that area.

    I had a runaway in 2 previous games and it was crazy runaways, 5 policies and 10-12 techs ahead of every other AI

    Irrational CS? They can do that.

    I have had quests without ANY reward before!

    Speaking of buffs, Arabia is pretty sad since the buff to markets. The bazaar is still good tho so thats fine.
    I really want to address the camel archer though, specifically the splash 2 promotion. You have to get into melee range of 2 targets to do 5 bonus damage. Not 10, you need splash 1 AND splash 2 to do 10 damage. Wtf. This is so inconsequential you might as well ignore it, because it is way too little risk/reward benefit to affect army compisition or tactics. Getting into melee range of miltiple targets often means incuring zone of control.

    Can camel archer get Splash 1 and Splash 2, even if it means losing 1-2 RCS/CS?
    Or at the very least get Splash 1 instead (which i assume would allow you to spend an upgrade for splash 2)

    Indeed. 1 GG + nothing out of 2 quests deserves some sort of award tho!

    Can you also explain this? Eng, Swe and Ned get their monopoly bonus controlling 4 out of 8 total resources, I don't get it with 1 out of 2. It might be cheap but afterall it's 50% for everybody. Is it because of a tie? The other coral belongs to a CS.

    I don't hesitate to reload if a CS gives a quest with no rewards. That's just ridiculous. Every action should have a response.

    Low rewards though are part of the game.

    One way to mitigate them is to hold off til you enter a new era. Rewards are reshuffled.

    Yep I wait for 1 era and then Manila offered me whole 4 influence points after I got an embassy in Amsterdam. Then asked me to build 2 markets... for some production and again 0 influence. Let just say those guys are trolling me.

    Having exactly 50% is enough to trigger the monopoly, I guess as long as nobody else controls the other 50%.

    No, 51% is needed.
