Is it just me, or does the tactical side of Civ V warfare suffer from a few circumstances that make it all feel the same? *The wars always start in and around cities. This is a combination of a couple of things. One, the map fills up pretty quickly on higher difficulties. Two, the AIs (except Napoleon) don't usually DoW you from the other side of the map; it's always neighbors. Three, they almost never DoW you until their units are in position, and if you try to preemptively strike their units at a tactical choke point between your territories, YOU get the warmonger penalty. *Forts never get used. Forts take a while to set up, and unless you're a Roman Legion, this means you have to take workers with you on campaign. In home territory, they require you to forgo a more useful improvement. *Great Generals have mobility issues. If you're Hiawatha or Montezuma, your great generals won't get to take part in your forest-hopping action. For Harald, they'll be left behind in your coastal assaults. Similar issues arise with various other Civs with movement bonuses. If you ask me, the Hakkapeliitta's main selling point should be an option for ALL units.
