Playing the map Carthagen, in a period of 10 years I send all (about 30) demanded goods by Rome, all the time sending gifts with all my savings.
My Favor was 53-54 all the time and not a point better.
My city had 100 prosperity, 100 peace, 60 culture, 5000+ citizens, 90k money and was perfect in all other ways (religion, unemployment, finance).
Then, even though having at least 20 prefect offices, all working with full number of employees, a several buildings started burning, which resulted in unstopable fire and my city burned to the ground - prefects couldn't stop it, because probably their AI is terrible, so 2-3 fires on different places at the same time surely means end of the city.
Of course, there were many solutions to this problem, but the best one for me was in the add/remove programs.
Still, I'm wondering, why my Favor didn't rise for 10 years fulfilling every request and why didn't prefects manage to put out the fire. Is it abnormal, or am I the stupid one?
I'm writing this with all the respect to this company, and I have played many of its city builders (although all have similar problems, but still remain great).
And not to mention how useless is the Favor adviser. Your favor is rising due to recent "something".... but... NOT.
Also mismatch on the Favor rating between "Ratings" and "Imperial" Tabs - they often show different numbers.
And many many others...
