Hi, I'd like to progress beyond noble, but I can't seem to get effective at the war business - when I win, it's always either Diplo or Space. I set up a Earth 34 Civ mods game as the Celts, with conquest as the only victory condition, for the purpose of trying to get better. I warrior rushed France, Rome, Spain and Holland, chariot rushed Portugal and HRE (had archers already so warriors weren't viable), upgraded a few warriors to axes and took England, then whipped out a stream of gallic warriors to take out Germany, Byzantium and Greece. Then I tried to take out the Vikings the same way but they gave me hell and forced me to get a few catapults there to finish them off. So by 130AD I have got most of Europe under control, plus Mali, Egypt, Ethiopia, Arabia and India all became voluntary vassals of mine. Thing is, the game is approaching a point where I don't know how to continue. Is a mob of gallic warriors + bunch of catapults + one axe and one spear reasonable assault force for the era, or should I rather improve the economy and wait for macemen? Especially since vikings were fairly tough with mere axemen... I'm also fairly sure I'm horrible at the city management - I either build too much units and feel left behind, or I build too few and invite an attack. I also feel absolutely lost when it comes to city specialization/focus and end up building jack-of-all-trades cities that are certainly suboptimal. I focused on building farms wherever I could this game instead of cottages, because I simply don't know where and how many cottages actually make sense... I would greatly appreciate any advice/pointers regarding the stuff I'm building, the units I have, the improvements around towns etc. Thanks!
