Argh. Is there any point to endless waves of barbarians in Civ IV? It seems that, inevitably, early in the game there’s a huge amount of warriors, archers, and axemen that have to be dealt with.
No kidding, in my current start up game (the East Asia scenario) I have three cities (6, 3, and 2 pop) and NINE barbarians of different types inside my cultural territory. And this happens all the damn time. Is there some sort of start-game limitation on expansion or growth?
