Up to Monarch, my chopping hasn't been that great. I would just chop and chop and chop without really considering where my chops went. Sure I would chop out settlers and workers, but alot of my chops were pre-math, which isn't optimal. Recently I've learned how to pre-chop effectively so I'm wondering how some of you manage your chops. What are important considerations? I know I found myself chopping because I didn't have anything else to do. I should have been roading or something If you think you will need to war, do you save forests for this post-math or is it better to go all out chopping workers and setters and not take advantage of the bonus? I've been chopping hills or riverside tiles because I now I will be building improvements soon. I'm trying to manage my worker turns better and I think chopping is an important aspect.
