One that doesn’t give the AI an extra settler. I can fairly reliably turn over King, and this is perhaps even more so in R&F where there’s emergencies, loyalty and eras to game the AI on. But moving up to emperor sucks the enjoyment away from the early game as you’re literally forced into warfare of some sort just to keep up. Building wonders is also ill advised Is there a mod? What do people do who’re like me and find themselves somewhere in between these two very different difficulty levels?
