What are the advantages, if any, of converting a league base to a city state base?

This question came up as we were playing a learning game this weekend and I had to admit I didn't know the answer.

One advantage is that if you are at peace, a Delian League base in Boeotia can be converted to an Athenian base with the Citizenship issue that plays before the Theater phase putting a block on Spartans moving into Boeotia and beyond into northerly theaters. This could apply to other theaters as well obviously, but Boeotia is in a choke point so it can be especially valuable there.

If you are at War, or will be going to War with an Assembly phase issue, the base conversion won't matter because the Spartans aren't blocked by Athenian units being in theater first.

Also, the two Honor points for conversion using Citizenship or League issues may be worth doing aside from any other advantages.

Ah, I see. It's used as a blocker in peace. That makes sense.

Also, isn't there an issue that lets you convert a league base to the opposite faction, but not a city state one?

A city state base allows Spartans to redeploy there so there's that.
