OCC on conquest. We won it at regent level, now we are going to try the same at monarch We naturally don't HAVE to be at war constantly. The end result however should be a conquest victory for us. With OCC I mean: at the end of the turn we may not have more than one city. During the turn we may have as many as we want. So we are allowed to demand cities for peace and then abandon them. We will play a small pangaea map, but I'm not sure of the tribe yet. We won the regent game with the Zulu. The AI never came close to the Middle Ages. I like the Zulu, the Iroquois, the Persians, the Celts, the Chinese. Other suggestions are welcome GAME RULES AI Aggression: normal Opponents: 5 random AI's. Rules: Standard, all standard single player victories enabled Barbarians: Roaming Level: Monarch C3C 1.22 BANNED TACTICS These are the exploits that I want to avoid in the game: "Phony Peace Treaty": Making Peace Treaties without having the intention to stay at peace, just to get cheap techs or money. "Palace Jump"; Jumping the palace by disbanding the capital. Rushing a palace or building it brick by brick is OK. "RoP Rape": Using Right of Passage to move whole armies into attack position. "Throwaway Cities": It is possible to go everywhere by settling, moving a setter one tile further in, abandoning the old city, founding a new one, etc...etc... A city shouldn't be abandoned in the same turn as it is settled. "Resource Piracy": Sitting on resources or deny a civ access to a tile inside the borders of the rival while at peace. "Dogpiling": Adding multiple workers to cities to increase population beyond the food supply. "Seed Corn": It is not allowed to buy the LAST TWO workers from the AI before 1000 BC. "Negative cash research": The penalty of negative cash is only one unit. So there are cases where this can be worthwile. Science spending must be lowered when the cash would go below zero. Things that I didn't name but are in the spirit of what I mention above I would like to have discussed. PLAYERS 4 players are already in the roster, 1 more is welcome. I'd say that you should be comfortable to play emperor level.
