Unsure if this is a tech issue, but seems kind of the right spot. I have always liked to play random settings...going back to earlier versions of Civ. When I do random in Civ 5, I am constantly getting the same AI civs. I went to do a custom game for HoF game and saw those same civs pre-set to be chosen, until I "de-selected them". What the hell? I am SOOOOOOO tired of having Venice in my games. I can never win a Diplo game. Also, and I've seen this numerous times, and had VVV games denied for this: When I choose random maps and game size, the city states don't come out right. Sometimes too few, sometimes too many. Just came out of a tiny map game(4 civs) so should have 8 city states....already found 9 and don't even have whole map uncovered. Are these known issues with this older game? I naturally Googled this before posting here but got pretty much zippo. I REALLY doubt I'm the only one who plays random settings, so just seems very surprising to not find results for others with these issues.
