Civs are pretty balanced for RM but unbalanced for EW.
Vikings, Magyars, Ethiopians, Chinese are very powerful in WE while there’s a bunch of civs that are very weak in comparison.
I think the gap between the best and the worse civs is bigger in EW than in RM.
I propose the following ideas for us to discuss:
Lithuanians and Persians starting with additional resources as in RM.
Cumans starting with 2 TCs (maybe OP, who knows, but Cumans are useless in EW so they need something).
Malians and Japanese starting with more wood due to the discount on buildings that are already created.
Feel free to contribute with any other idea that you have and i’m sure we’ll come up with a bunch of good ones!
