re-Welcome to Dr kossin #21. Dr is an acronym for Daily Round. Yes, I mean to get in an update every day to the games I will be playing. Of course there might be some days where I can only play a little or not at all, but I will make up for it those other days when I do have extra time on my hands. After what I'd dare call a successful showing on Immortal level (out of 20 games played, 18W/2L with 1L due to an unfortunate RNG roll), I've decided to up the ante and bump the difficulty to Deity. I'm not at the point where I can win every game thrown at me on Deity level. I probably can't even win every game thrown at me on Immortal but it is getting a bit boring. My goal is now to achieve competitive skills on this level which should hopefully help me improve more. Maybe I should change the series name to DDR now (Deity Daily Round ). You, the reader, can help me achieve this goal by pointing out where I got astray, give suggestions on how to proceed, use complex abstract mathematical analysis to argue, curse at me or anything that you may like. Please note that you must respect the Terms of Service of CFC in any case You may shadow this game and post it here if you please, but I kindly request that you put it in spoiler tags and that anyone reading the report abstain from using information found there to help me out. Should you want more clarification about something I've done, just ask for it and I will try to answer as best as I can. Enough talk, on to the game. Dr kossin #21 Round 0 Settling Round 1 On your marks, get ready, settle! Round 2 Questionable decisions Round 3 Towards Liberalism Round 4 War! Round 5 War and Peace Game settings Deity Normal Speed Fractal No Events No Huts BTS 3.19 with BUG 4.2 in CustomAssets and BULL 1.0 Everything else is normal. I've played a few turns (<50) with the map to make sure it is playable for my meager Deity success rate. The leader, this time, is: Please refer to the Aztec Civ IV wiki for more information on this leader/nation. The start: A fine start. The plains hill under the settler is a good bonus. There is a 5 flood plains for either cottaging or a good food surplus to work all the hills in the BFC. Elephants suggest the possibility of early war, especially given our UB which encourages whipping a lot. I'll (re-)start playing tomorrow evening, which should give about 24 hours for whatever needs discussion. Techpath: Agriculture->AH->Mining->BW seems reasonable although Archery may be required for defense against barbarians.
