    This is the place to put intel on Team 4.

    Who are their players? Are they good at MP? Diplomacy? Any tendencies we can use to our advantage?

    When civs are known we can post info on their civ.

    We have 4 espionage, they have 0. This could mean either they have espionage turned completely off, or they know another team.

    I don't think that's true.

    First, you can not turn of espionage. The 4 espionage points from the palace are always distributed on the known teams.

    Second, I believe Cav could not distribute any espionage points on us, because they did not know us in their last turn. (Production, research, growth,... are calculated after each team's turn.)

    edit:
    With simultaneous turns this is different...

    I am on Civ3 team with Niklas. That's a good sign - he's very efficient player, but honest and straightforward. Kuningas has a reputation for precision and skill, but I have never served on a team with him. That's all the personal contact I can offer. I know that Empiremaker was on one of the teams I played against, but I don't recall getting much of an impression from him.

    Cavaleiros' email nickname is Principe Perfeito, which sort of means Perfect Prince in Portugues.

    They have a bunch of extremely good SP-players. ... don't know about their MP knowledge.
    Rusten and U.Sun are probably the best CIV-deity-players I know (altough that's SP).

    ... guess I won't be able to offer any more on any team...

    I've heard that Oyzar is good at gathering information via chat, sometimes information you wouldn't want to divulge.

    Cav gave their 4 espio-points to us, so I think, they know only us. Also their little info about the world is areason for that. I think the map is so,that only difficult ways go from one team to another. In this Sulla has made a good job.

    I heard it during the game linked from my sig. Apparently it's pretty common knowledge in the Strategamer community.

    I can't find pottery in your list.
    It's in oyzar's tech-list and he also mentioned their "cottagers" at the floods-city, where Ana. is.

    I saw in the chat posted somewhere that "dustem" was on the chat. That's Methos's nick, in case anyone doesn't know.
