And what does the Pre-Orc player do when he has scouted to the orc wall and cant cater without Orcs? Does that not exist?The point is that it's mostly BS.
You do not need to prevent overschouting, there is no such thing as overschouting. It does not exist.
Once your relic bonus is on par I have never seen a player low on goods, we all have too much. Who cares you need to negotiate an very hard province?
What else to do with a pile of too much goods?
Sit on it, looking at it while it grows and grows and grows and grows? Why not use it and unlock some very hard provinces?
