Hello I'm actually trying SV victories on Deity and seems that I'll need more expansion early on. My questions are: - Should I rush with archers + warriors if I've one or more close neightbour? IE: Japan at 15 hexes or less north, Poland south 15 hexes and Aztecs east 20 hexes. - Is it actually better to hold off and wait until swordsmen + battering ram for and early push? What happens if no iron near, just reset? - How many settlers should I build on the very first 50-100 turns? Taking in consideration enought space for 3-4 cities. - As Korea is viable to rush Seowon at the beggining to speed up swordsmen? - If neightbours close. When I should declare war? Or is better to just don't send delegations and let them declare on me? Actually trying with archer rush but somehow I allways get dark age after conquering 2 or 3 cities of my closest neightbour and all conquested cities swap to them in 10 or so turns. All that taking in account civs without Classical or Medieval UU. PS: Sorry about my poor english.
