Best way to learn ios to make a mistake. Whats some of yours? I have been in Civ3 mode with roads. I tend to forget AI teams can use your roads. I had a fantastic Deity Roman game going. 5-6 early cities, huge archer armies, found the 7 cities of gold in a great gold city island with a whale, fish and oak available. Rush built multiple archers and had a gret roading network up. Didn't notice an Egyptian archer sneak onto one of my roads and Rome was naked. Rome falls to the archer unit and I had city walls as well Thought I wouold recapture it easy enough. Got 3 archer armies and my horsemen and rapidly redeployed to assault my own capital. No city walls left but the 1 Egyptian archer unit gets the palace combat bonus. Egyptian archer (not archer army) holds off all my armies, 2 horsemen and an upgraded warrior. Doh doh doh.
