Playing on an Island map an automatic win?

    I normally play continents but went with Kupe on Island Plates. No we all know Kupe is about as S Tier as you can find, but it seems that playing anyone on a island map is a free game because the AI doesn't, or can't keep up. I'm playing deity and it seems no wonders are being built past The Great Library, no wars, even Korea isn't far ahead in science like they are on any other map. I've taken to enjoying island maps but theres no challenge to keep me going now. It's upsetting

    Yeah it's not balanced. And I can chip in and say my only Maori game so far in GS was on an Island Plates map and... well mistakes were made because it was perhaps the most dominant victory I've ever had in Civ. I was tripling everyone else in culture and science by the classical era on Immortal without even attacking anyone lol

    I think Island Plates might be a bit more fair if you play with low sea level but nevertheless it'll always be a pretty gimmicky game where many of the early game aspects of Civ are flipped really hard

    This is like true of any game with AI I've ever played. Indeed, islands are a handicap for them.

    Yes I think AI is worse than previous versions on Island map. Won 2 deity always war with the Maori easily. In previous versions I could not win AW on Island because I would get crushed by early AI navy before I could tech/produce one.
