I'm not getting this. I'm playing Alexander and I took the advice of the narrator and declared war on Dido..she was woefully unprepared and I took three cities bing bang boom. Right? No ,not right. I had to defend a city for 30 turns which I did (via the wonderful world congress). While defending I built walls and encampments (all the good stuff) and after defending I got 100 favor points and an extra +2 combat. (which meant nothing cause there were no era rewards) so...I go into a dark age and these cities that I had turned into fortresses give me 5 FIVE turns to earn Loyalty or they're rebelling!!(no, garrisoned units did not matter neither did governors.)...F I V E. T U R N S. So they rebel because there is no mechanic to earn loyalty that quickly. And low and behold their rebels have rifles.!! RIFLES!!?? I don't have riflemen...Dido didn't have riflemen but there they are!! Riflemen..two squads per city..telling my catapults to get wrecked. What am I missing?
