    How did "City of Light" finish so low? I like it a lot because its very helpful to culture victory. You really arent going to build that many wonders outside of your capital.

    I think Assyria got rated too highly as a result of not enough people have played them to find out how hard it is to use in practice, but that's IMO of course.

    Yeah, I'm very confused as to why it and Babylon's UA remained so long while Ethiopia's, which is one of the most versatile, got eliminated so fast. And yeah, Sweden's UA trumps "Hellenic Fricking League" (I'm going to have to call it that from now on!) any day. It's all very confusing...

    Much too high: Serenissima (I like Venice but this is one of the only UA's that is also a drawback, regardless of whether it is possible to look at this without considering the Merchant of Venice)
    Too high: Hellenic League, Mare Clausum, Phoenician Heritage
    Too low: Sun Never Sets, Carnival, Dutch East India Company
    Much too low: Diplomatic Marriage (lolwut, this is still godlike, huge city + units for 500 gold?)
