umm, an obvious new part of the june patch is ultra aggressive barbs and AI. I guess we are back to a war game now, which kind of sucks. I've always thought warmonger was the cheap way of exploiting the AI but it would seem there is no other start now than to start cranking units. I just started a game on emperor and on turn 11 there is a barb camp 4 tiles from my capital with two horsemen that killed my scout. and that is apparently par for the course for this patch.
