Hello, This is an open invitation to a discussion about the state regarding one of the aspects in the game from the perception of a long time Civ-franschise player. If you disagree with my critique you are of course free to do that, but please don't derail the whole premise of the discussion. Problem: Game pacing, more specifically the balance between scientific and cultural progress compared to production values are out of sync. Especially so on higher difficulties. This is nothing new, CiV suffered from this syndrome aswell, especially before patches. The eras breeze through while the level of production has problems keeping up, this means some buildings lack purpose and units sometimes don't even get built before replacements are available. This discussion has been had previously so I figured with the release of the new expansion, now is a good time to revisit it. Do you think this is a problem? Has this improved over time or maybe with GS? Is it resolvable with through mods? Please share you views!
