Exploit: join tiny Nation, Golden Age, leave
In game 173, I just observed (RichardL, RobertL, something like that) join the Egyptians, fill the Golden Age, and then leave. Presumably, that's how they are winning the Economic Era victories, in this case for the French.
The player didn't bother to stay and fight the looming Barbarian battle. 2 of the 3 Egyptians have played in 2 days, 1 played yesterday.
(Sadly, I joined the Egyptians too late to benefit -- after I noticed his exploit -- although I'm not an economic player. Instead, I joined to fight off their barbarians. It seemed sad to have them all lose their people, although it looks like that's happened at least once already.)
This is a feature of the social game, I think.
This is more a feature of miniwonders costing too little for small civs than anything else.
I was thinking a problem with Civ switching more than anything else, but maybe both....
