    Same with governors... except for sometimes in the lategame moving liang around to make city parks, or moving reyna/moksha around to buy districts, they usually just stay where I put them initially.

    Is this even possible on any level above Prince? Even on Prince I'm sure it goes fast. I've conquered it, but I don't think I have ever built it. Same goes for Hanging Gardens, though that one I did build in my noob days on lower difficulty levels like Prince. The AI just loves those 2 wonders.

    I might actually have to look up the video for that one, not sure I ever saw it.

    I don't know if it's because I play with mods, but I get the Great Bath on king more often than not. The NPCs definitely have a thing for certain wonders, though.

    I can usually get the Hanging Gardens, though I'll be sure to get something that gives a wonder construction bonus if I go for it. I also like that wonder, and it's great for Inca and Maya in particular. Now the Apadana is another wonder I can never get, it's never that high priority for me but some AI will start on it as soon as available.

    Everytime i watch deity 'lets play' the tactic seems to be beat up the AI using its incompetence with 1upt.

    Never won a science victory.
    Won every other type (except score). Science victory usually devolves into domination victory for me or I get bored and start over.

    Mayans are really good for science victory, IMHO. I got a fairly quick one by my standards.

    I've never once done the Manhattan project. So no nukes, ever!

    Good question... Doing these for me is the exception rather than the rule:
    * harvesting resources (even though I should do that at least before I construct a district on top of it)
    * pillaging: no sense in destroying improvements that I'll own in a couple of turns
    * being involved in the religion game in any way. The only thing I do is pantheons, I usually don't build a Holy Site in time to get a Great Prophet. I usually focus on science, and thus the Great Scientist that needs a Holy Site to play sits uselessly in one of my cities. I have never won a religious victory.
    * taking out (walled) cities without bombers. It usually doesn't happen. I usually take a long time to build up my military and get ahead of the AI in science before I start attacking them.

    I mean, peaceful play is even easier and needs far less work. domination means lots of hammers into units, lots of micromanagement, lots of AIs that hate you and don't want to trade with you. for peaceful play all you need is enough space for about 10 cities. as soon as you have friendship with your neighbors the game is over, either via diplo, culture or science.

    Never bothered with a diplomatic victory. Too dang tedious. I wish they would clean up the cultural win screens and make it less irritating. Rant over.

    I’ve tried beelining it with Qin on Immortal a few times to no success. It might take a random map roll where they happen to spawn without flood plains

    I doubt diplo victory can be called a routine thing.

    DV has changed since the last patch. I won one by accident in my Maya game.

    that's only half-right. if it's a district, you might not want to have to spend the time to fix them once you conquer the city, so in this sense you're right.

    For simple improvements, though ? All you need is a 1 charge builder and fix the pillaging... it doesn't even cost you a charge to do it. So the rewards/return on pillaging in this instance is very high,
    and you should really entertain it.
