Hello all, I've decided to start my own little forum games that have been called Dr kossin, which stands for Daily Round. Yes, my goal is to get in a update every day - as long as I have the time (work, girlfriend, etc). I might skip a day here and there but I will compensate by playing an extra round here and there. Now I don't plan on very long updates, sometimes just 10 turns, and will stop at strategic times. That being said, I'm not a great player but I can manage at times. My goal is to improve and, if possible, help others improve as well. I couldn't beat Noble when I started reading this forum (could barely beat Warlord) and I am now in the process of moving up to Immortal. That's where you come in. I need your ideas, your criticism and everything else you can throw at me - even if you can't beat Noble. Since I plan on an update everyday, there will be mistakes from my part and I might not always get the best advice going forward. That's life! You are also welcome to shadow this game, although I would prefer you post it in spoilers and no further than I have already played. You can still shadow the whole game and post it but it is important that no one uses that knowledge (land, AIs) to help me. Without further time wasting, let's go to the first game. Dr kossin #1 Round 0 Warrior move & settling Round 1 Initial scouting until first settler Round 2a Some fog uncovered... Round 2b To rush or not to rush Round 3 Consolidating the Empire Round 4 Until the birth of Christ (well, a Guru anyway) Round 5a Short round, short question Round 5b What would you like to build next? Round 6 To Liberalism and further preparations. Round 7 Shift+Enter Game settings: Immortal Fractal (I've had a friend check that it is not isolated or semi-isolated) Normal Speed No Huts/Events BUG 4.1 in Custom Assets Everything else normal. To start the series, I've picked my favorite leader: Hatshepsut. Creative for easy border pops, fast libraries, theatres and colosseums. Spiritual for anarchy-free civic/religion changes, fast temples and Cristo Redemptor. Her UB: A monument with 2 Prophet slots. Her UU: A chariot with 5 strength. Great for taking barb cities. We start with Agriculture and The Wheel These are the 2 most expensive starting techs. Moreover, pottery is only 1 tech away. And the start: 2 corns, one riverside (and a riverside wine). Looks pretty good. Here's what I think is in the fog: Where should I move the warrior? I will post a new screenshot after some feedback.
