Babylon is probably the worst civilization to play.

    Even though this Civ can generate scientists easier, it was still very weak, in terms of everything in the game...

    The only way they could suck more is if they got bonus happiness for each city they founded.

    and the Walls of Babylon, and the archers... what's the point of having an advantage over an early rush anyway?

    I have a feeling that the OP was not ironik but just have no idea of the game.
    Of course he might be a troll.

    Either he isn't experienced, or isn't good.

    Me smells a troll...his first post here ever and he makes a remark that one of the Top 5 (IMO) Civs is the worst?

    I was going to go into a whole diatribe about how the Babs rock but I'm pretty sure I don't have to... :cool:

    You don't have to be a pro to show that.
    1) Science rules the game in almost every case. And the Babs are either the best or 2nd best at it.
    2) An early Bowman rush combined with the science can make you almost unstoppable.

    Some people suspect the Bab is *overpowered*. It's far better than, say, Songhi or Germany. Or America at that.

    Moderator Action: If someone seriously wants to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of Babylon, he's allowed to open a thread with a real discussion potential (includes a real opening post with discussion material).
    But for this thread here, i don't see how anything good will come out.
    -> thread closed.
