I want to see your ranking of broken UUs.incorrect, knights and xbows were always the best combination of units in open map TG. The main reason UU builds are harder to pull off is due to walls being nerfed so xbows can bust in more easily as well as people picking civs in every single game. Not to mention the increased micro potential for xbows due to lack of latency.
All if takes is a few games on maps outside of TG arabia and you will find out that many UUs are extremely oppressive... In fact, I would say random civ 4v4 nomad in 2021 is based mostly around which team has more terribly broken UUs.
I believe I have found the explanation for this:Lmao I had the same feeling for Crop Rotation. In the Conquerors, 8/18 (44%) civs had Crop Rotation. Now, 26/39 (66%) civs have Crop Rotation. Not like that technology really affects gameplay, but still, the new civ designer have some kind of weird fetish with it.
Farmers in the region of Waasland (in present-day northern Belgium) pioneered a four-field rotation in the early 16th century
