Re: Beta Chinese Discussion

The compensation China gets though for its problematic internal unit balance is significant economic advantages in the form of wonders and consulate. It doesn't have wood villagers like India and can still hunt unlike Japan. Sure all civs to a point get a few bonuses here and there but China gets qu .....
