Someone noted it in the comments on reddit, and i think it deserves a post here.
With addition of minor settlement battles, on top of map density where almoust every settlement is one turn away, this leaves us with next to no field battles.
And what makes it extra problematic, AI often likes to just sit on it's ass and amass forces around it's cities.
Speaking of AI, it did not get much smarter, so here is also that.
I like new maps, don't get me wrong, but i still prefer for majority of confrontations to happen in the wild if you will. Game handles them better, and generally i consider them way more exiting and allowing for greater opportunities.
Did i misjudged the situation, and if not, what do?
Or it's fine for most people and i'am just making an unnecessary fuss over my small personal preference?
