Short report on a silly T175 DomV on map #119 as the Zulu Spoiler : A few years ago I cleared a Denmark Lakes map with Berserkers only, so I thought I'd try to do the same with Impis here. 2-city NC in the late T60s, God-King pantheon, Iron Working for Heroic Epic first then Civil Service for Impis. Tradition opener - full Honor - Patronage opener for FP. I attacked England with Spearmen and managed to take York, but London only had 2 land tiles from which it could be melee attacked, so I had to wait for Impis. Citadel on the Silk made things easy, but it still took long to bring the city down to 0 hp with just two attacks per turn. Spoiler T83 : Impi promotion path was unique promotions first, then double Shock/Drill, then Siege. Later on I'd keep these veterans in the back, and let newer units deal with the defenders first, using insta-heals liberally. Then the siege guys would move in and take cities. My second army took Marrakech pretty easily, then moved on to Arabia, but I couldn't capture Mecca at the time. So I just took Medina in a peace deal with the intention to come back later with a couple of GGs. Istanbul had Great Wall, but it was actually one of the easier cities to take because it was flatland, attackable from 5 land tiles and there was no river next to it. Capturing Istanbul was very beneficial because it had Statue of Zeus, so that city should've probably been one of my first targets. The most difficult cities to take were Venice and Mecca, so I had to double-citadel both: Spoiler Venice : Spoiler Mecca T175 : I didn't play this very well and I thought I'd lost the challenge when I saw Venice's and Mecca's city defense numbers. My backup plan was to upgrade to Riflemen and just walk over everything, but in the end that wasn't necessary. I've never spammed this many Impis and I was pretty impressed with how resilient they are and how quickly they kill AI units. It would have probably been better to go for the same policies as in my old Denmark game: Liberty to free worker then full Honor, either capturing or building the Pyramids for insta-repairs. And perhaps I needed more "specialist" Impis, e.g. a few Amphibious promoted ones, a couple of Medics, some unit killers and city attackers. I just brute-forced it instead.
