I was playing a random leader Continents game as Toku on Emperor. I was relucant to proceed (being Toku), but my "adapt to the situation" strict policy made me continue. The game went pretty well and I felt I was making good progress. Then, a wounded 1.8/3 strength barb Archer came up knocking on my 2nd city. I had a fully healed, fully fortified, +25 city defense Warrior in it. I figured he would win, but he lost and I lost the city. I went out of Civ at that point. So my question goes to you honest Civ players. When you play the game well and you lose due to simple, infuriating bad luck (he had >.1% to beat my Warrior), due you go on to the next game, or do consider it honest and right to, say, go into WB and delete that Archer? Or gift yourself a Warrior? Or simply reload and try to have 2 defenders in that city? I don't want to cheat, but things like this (ridiculous barb wins, losing wonders/techs/wins by 1-2 turns) have been happening to me all the time since I started Emperor, and it's really not motivating. So what would you do?
