[C3C] COTM156 Netherlands Demigod -- Discussion and Spoilers

Because I wanted to produce a Settler in Amsterdam causing the Palace to jump. Perhaps it wouldn't have mattered much?

ok, now i get it! ;)
i did not mean to doubt your motives, only tried to understand the "of course" bit of the action.
but couldn´t you have rushed/finished the settler the same turn already with all the shields into it?

you can either disband the capital by rightclicking the city tile and choosing the Disband Town option (I think this is what it is called, right?). or you build a worker at size 1, or a settler at 1 or 2 (without a food surplus in the town an that moment). that also does the job, but you have to wait for the production cycle on IBT, but you gain a pop unit that way. ;)
tried to understand the "of course" bit

Well, I guess you are right, I could have considered how other people may play and left out the "of course". But this was my spoiler coloured by my habits and mistakes.

[rant]I suppose it might have been possible to move Warriors around and actually wind up with one or two (can't remember shield production rate in Amsterdam at the time) to spare for disbanding without causing civil unrest. But that is not how I usually play, and I play this game for entertainment and leisure and have, I must admit, stopped learning and improving much. It is enough these days to manage IRL with its everyday complete lunacy and repression based on ludicrous fantasies, clowns calling themselves journalists and politicians and fact checkers and community guideline overlord nitwits overruling acutal experts, practitioners and scientists now in more and more areas. Sorry for my relaxed attitude.[/rant]

I'm only human. I am what I am, I am my own soulful creation. I deal my own deck, sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.
In between turn

i.e., everything that comes after you hit Enter after you´ve moved all of your units, and before you can move units again. ;)

I was marching towards Conquest but started running out of both time and interest for the tedious logistics involved, so I just relaxed and had a premature domination in 1110 AD. Failed 10k Jason.
I also did not finish due to lack of time but enjoyed the map and set up when was playing. Thanks to the creator and well done finishers!
