Do many players steal early workers from city-states? Is this the optimal strategy? I don't really incorporate this strategy into my games, but may reconsider it. My concern is: Does it affect your long-term relations with all city-states and get you the -2 decay sooner? I like to conquer the occasional city-state if it's worthwhile to me, even more if other city-states wants them eliminated. But I don't want to start pissing off the city-states sooner than if I didn't steal a worker at the start.
