Hi everyone, as the title says, what are your strategies when not founding a religion and when do you usually do this. I'm not saying that pantheon is not counted. Personally, if I play as a non-religious civ with a neighboring religious civ such as Ethiopia and India, I rarely found a religion. Having no control on the benefits (both founder and follower) is a major loss in terms of flexibility, but I don't find it as a defeat, unless you conquer them before enhancing. Many factors affect the rate of faith you'll gain based on the map and monopoly, so I think, sometimes it is worthless to try to found a religion and focus on building monuments instead of shrines and/or just conquer another holy city. However, since we won't benefit on the founder beliefs of a religion, is it really worth it not to found a religion? What are the benefits for intentionally not founding one? Thanks!
