Yesterday I made a discussion thread about Rome. Well today I want to talk about another civ I really like. China. Now unlike Rome who were always great and got nerfed in Gathering storm, it's been quite the opposite story for China. Throughout the majority of R&F and vanilla china were considered by many a below average civ. They had potential but there was something that always stopped them from being great. Originally, it was a lack of early wonders that were either any good or worth building, or it was that the crouching tiger being terrible or the great wall being just as bad. However, fast forward to gathering storm and there are plenty of early wonders for China to grab and in the most recent patch the great wall has been buffed to a point where it's worthwhile placing now. At the start of gathering storm I placed china in the A tier, but thanks to this change I have since moved them into high A tier with the potential to be S if the crouching tiger ever gets improved. So what do we all think of china now then? They have had quite the journey haven't they?
