I was playing a game as the Incans (first post patch) and the way it had played out I was going for a cultural Victory. Had 3 core cities and 4 puppets. HAd DOFs with Songhai, Denmark and Spain for much of the game. By the 1300s I was storming ahead in culture, production soldiers and gold. Every one else only had about 3-4 cities. confident in my lead I stopped looking at the demographics......silly me. Suddenly Songhai had plonked down 4 more cities in quick succsesion and Babylon attacked 1 of the city states I was allies with. Since they were behind a now buffer of songhai (with another mountain pass inbetween, I couldnt outright attack so I gifted them some of my army...... Everyone denounces songhai.......I end my DOF when chance comes round, Songhai attacks a weakend Babylon (The units I gifted were longswords and pikes vs Babylons almost 100% knight army) gaining another 3 cities very quickly. I nearvously check the demograhics. Songhai is now about 20% more than me in soldiers.......I see whats coming and quickly try to build more soldiers. I get Dowed on 2 turns later. There are multiple chocke points through the mountain pass, but its gonna be one hell of a war, quite clever too by Songhai - no one else has denounced my or anything like that......although I will see what happens when im involved in a war!! Anyway quite pleased with the clever play by the AI.....anyone else seen improvement?
