I guess I've gotten the impression that civ vi is moving more and more towards treating history with protective mittens. For someone as cynical and grumpy as me it just gets irritating. The impression I get for the reason for this change is a large number of the player base thinking there's a problem because they find their allies spying on them and then think `oh this game is stupid, allies don't spy on each other`. And then the change is made because of that rather than people attempting to grapple with the extreme complexities and grey areas that make up reality. lol even writing this makes me realise how extremely pretentious I sound. But as I said I'm happy for the people who are happy with this change. But I would like my game world to be just that little bit darker and more interesting. I guess I`ve always had this underlying feeling that Civ Vi was moving in this direction. But for some reason this seems like the final straw that just pushes it over the edge to feeling like a toybox. Was fascinating is it seems like there are other people who independently all feel the same way. lol i`ll probably get over it. Now time for my nap, Dramatic ages was probably my favourite addition Civ Vi had ever gotten. And then this spy change is honestly probably my least favourite change. All within the space of two months.
