    Thanks guys, great podcast again.

    As for the Lahore/Nihann discussion, thx for choosing the subject. Basically, it was pretty much agreed in the thread that the title of the thread was probably overly dramatic ;-)

    the principal point to keep in mind here is that, in the hand of a basically domination civ, you will, at a certain time, get a lot of faith coming in even if you don't personally build the faith buildings yourself...you'll conquer them. So, while early game nihang is good, the faith cost keeps them in check. But industrial and later nihang, combined with a civ like Gran Columbia, you can actually buy a 55-70 unit every turn. Then you can corp and army them. All for 200 faith a pop. I had 105 AS nihang by the end of the game, which I won by TOTAL domination at turn 197 on huge map. And I had over 30 army of them.

    My argument is that the cost of the unit should increase, otherwise they unbalance the game ina major way. Maybe the cost should scale directly with the level of the nihang produced (linked to encampment building constructed).

    Still, we all understand that it's very niche since there's no garantee that specific CS will be in your game. but anything that unbalanced should have a check introduced IMHO.

    thanks again !
