I feel like the free worker that the AI starts with is a little to easy steal with almost no repercussion. There is almost never a scenario I can think of where if I discover a civ soon enough building that early farm that Im not going to DoW and steal the worker. Even with the 50 turn malus and unit maintenance its a still a major boon very early for almost no risk. This is only on emperor, so Im not sure how dangerous it is on higher difficulties, but on the lets plays Ive seen early worker steals even on diety seem pretty safe. My big gripe with this is only that it feels really gamey and sort of necessary. Theres no planning or strategy that goes into it and the AI is put at a pretty big disadvantage easily and early. How does every one else feel about it?
