I still don't get why the current counter-cheats wasn't working.
-trading units/provinces was already limited until day #7
-we were already limited to 10% of your military units per day and 4 provinces max per game
why wasn't that satisfactory? Why couldn't you enhance those countermeasures pushing it to 5% per day, a day #14 minimum, and only two province trades max?
How do I build a harbor which requires 10K wood early in the game if I am from a country with low wood production? How do I build 2 harbors early in the game to match my neighbor makes it apparent he wants to start a naval arms race and I need that second harbor to build ships?
You nuked a critical element of the game to resolve a minor/non-existent issue that will now have major ramifications for the players.
