Sorry that this'll be vague on details, but I didn't expect it to happen so didn't keep a running tally. Thing is, I lost a game on lowly Warlord within 6 minutes because of a Barbarian uprising. A six-archer stack stormed my borders while I had a single worker, my capital had a population of 3 or 4, my warrior was too far north to make it back, I had a single archer guarding my capital, and another archer being built (not in time to do any defending). I don't recall ever having an uprising that quickly; I hadn't even met any of the other eight civs yet! Is this kind of result simple bad luck or do most of you (even on those low difficulty levels) pump up on warriors/archers to protect you from barbarians? Most of my games I seem to get by quite well with standard protection for quite some time. I'm not a war-mongerer and prefer the building over battle, but I don't like turning off the barbarians or war because they do add some interesting dynamics to the game (like this event).
