Hey! This is Houli.
The map is incredible. Thanks for all the hard work!
This is a different problem than the infantry meta discussion on the other page.
It's too easy to take over one city in someone's territory, make conscripts, and spread very quickly like cancer. I think conscripts are great for defense, so I'm not proposing making them build slower. Here are a few ideas on what might work well (I think 1 and/or 2 would be great, but 3 and 4 are not great but I'll throw them out there):
1. Require that you own a city for a few minutes before you can start building conscripts out of that city.
2. Make conscripts unable to attack cities
3. Make conscripts die if they wander too far from the city from which they spawned.
4. Make conscripts have timed life
