Hey, I'm new to Civilization by a week or two, and every game I play I've been learning so much. However, I've only really played Prince. I played Immortal for this GOTM and lost in half an hour, and lost a game of King as Spain as well. This made me look more carefully at my gamestyle, and of course I see a lot of wasted moves. I came here and reddit looking for strategies and found this great one for the French that I'm practicing. http://www.reddit.com/r/civ/comments/wmz3y/rushing_religion_or_how_i_stopped_worrying_about/ I tried this twice, first one failed miserably, halfway through my second playthrough and this time did it right. This game, though on Prince, has taught me how to optimize my moves, though I still end up automating workers because I just dont know what to do with them anymore after the beginning. Overall, I was wondering what other kind of similar openings you guys had for the French and Koreans, at the moment my favorite ones to play with, with Babylon a close second. I'm not very good at Domination, still haven't won through that yet, but Cultural x2 and Science x2. I don't care much for Diplomatic, though I tried once and ended up just going Cultural (Celts). Any advice would be appreciated in advance, thank you tl;dr: basically I'm looking to step up from Prince to a higher difficulty, King, and was wondering about some specific opening strategies with Korean/French civs.
