Hey there! I just have a suggestion for people who are bored and/or frustrated with this game. I used to only play on Diety/Immortal to try have a 'challenge'. Anyway, I decided I'd get the achievement for beating it in Warlord. I just finished the game and it was probably the most fun I've had in ages! Wasn't much of a challenge, but it was fun dominating everyone and I still felt a sense of accomplishment when I had constructed my technologically, culturally, econmically superior empire. So, try out a lower difficulty setting if you're feeling bored and/or frustrated. Maybe you'll have the most fun game you've played ever.
