The game is too fast and too easy, and each new update is only making it even quicker due to some insane power creep. Deity should be a setting where you have to put full effort into winning, but instead you can still do whatever the hell you want and cruise to an easy victory. The ease will also stop people from experiencing the full Secret Societies due to them being linked to World Age, instead of your civilisation's Age. The World Age is always far, far behind where it should be due to all the power creep and lack of proper speed balance; I have not even seen the later ages since the original diplomatic victory... I really hope there is something in the next patch to address this, or that they know it is an issue and are working on it.
