    so after about 15 games that I just couldn't get into I finally got into a game.... yaay

    It was a game of first that's for sure

    First of all, mid-way the game (I had cities, 8 routes coming towards City States since I pre-planned knowing I'll adopt the +4 per turn for trade routes with City States tenet.

    I managed to achieve the following

    1. Hamburg flipped! To my side, first time I ever had an AI go so unhappy (stubborn Bismarck, what did you expect with Autocracy when I was Freedom) so I razed it, was TOO far away (I got the ICS OCD thing, where I even settle new cities so they are 3 tiles from cities I want to conquer lol)

    2. I got the 100 happiness achievement when I noticed my happiness was increasing (so many luxuries, I didn't even HAVE any Happiness bonuses, none at all LOL)

    3. And.. finally, my proudest achievement, on Huge map, I managed to get 44 delegates from being allied to most of the city states I saw, and had I think 51 with Globalization... minimum to win was 38.. LOL

    And.. it got me through the day, woke up at 6 P.M, it's now 12 P.M the next day.. off to bed.. next Assyria Order Domination, followed by Portgual Autocracy Cultural, and finally Venice... as whatever.

    Actually Warlord.. I'm thinking that once I win as Venice, I'll try Prince, see how different it is with BNW.

    shouldnt people give difficulty in parentheses? cos 'FINALLY - won as shoshone (warlord)' looks soooo different, as 'FINALLY - won as shoshone (deity)'

    Or people could stop thinking they're awesome cause they play higher difficulty levels. It's a game.

    There's nothing wrong with distinguishing the type of game, as higher difficulty games tend to offer more strategy.

    It's just a simple fact that the game on Warlord is a different game than on Immortal or Deity. It's not that you're a better person, it's just that you're having two different conversations.

    I'm pretty sure that I'm smart enough to post this in Strategy & Tips IF it was a Strategy-related topic. But it ain't.
