I am really finding this a bit hard to understand. I am accepting it because it's something new and makes the game like a new game. Thing is, I am hating having not my city grow. So it's like when ever you build a unit, they are all like Settlers, no city growth. It's an interesting idea, that the training and food goes to the army. I can maybe have more fun if I understood why this is so. This really slows the game down. I wonder if this hampers or slows down the AI or does the AI know how to balance? I mean does the AI know how to grow it's cities and make units as well to survive?
