I consider that these buildings should be available, without having to go through a forced age pass as they are fundamental in the game. Changing them by card as happened with the USA, maybe adding them with some additional cost of influence but with an improvement as for example that the church card is in first and that costs 150 of influence and the arsenal is in age two but with a cost of 300 of influence but that you also get the improvements of advanced arsenal.
they already receive it through alliance… it’s a bonus and con choosing it or not choosing it
The least ethiopia and Hausa need are more buffs to make them even more “european”: Their units are already quite busted.
that’s the problem you get it for going over age, if i don’t choose it i’m at a disadvantage in the late game condemning several strategies, i think those buildings should have more chances to get it like the japanese with the consulate.
THE BONUSES THEY RECEIVE WHEN THEY AGE, IN ALL CIVILIZATIONS, ARE NOT SO DETERMINISTIC.
in addition, the cards would have an additional cost of influence and would not be easy to draw.
