If I have a build that has reached Hamlet status (10,000 prestige) and someone builds a road to me from a Village (250,000) prestige, is my Hamlet merged into the Village or does it stay a Hamlet?
My concern is that if a group of people want to have their own town and another groups just wants to be the biggest city, can they not just build roads to absorb the others? If this is possible, should it be allowed or should a build that has reached a certain size (Hamlet or Village) be able to choose, if they want to be absorbed? I can see circumstances where people might want to merge their cities and I can see instances where they may not. Having the options might be best.
