    Hey, when workers unite, they can be quite a force. Just ask Czar Nicholas II. :mischief:

    IIRC the abdication of Nicholas II was more a case of everybody disliking him.
    The next government armed the Bolsheviks, that's where it went wrong.

    Civ'ed, you have been reported to the Thought Police for thoughtcrime and counter-revolutionary activities. Specifically, for thinking there is anything "wrong" with the Glorious People's Revolution. Tell Winston Smith I said hi.

    Not surprised at all. And not unexpected when galleys only allow 2 units max.
    I've seen such situations in the past.

    Unseen but also owns the great wall. Impressive city of course but does anyone see a problem with Joao's strategy?

    Quite clearly his strategic failure is the fact that that city looks highly conquerable. In both desirability and in the garrison

    You can't see the garrison because the terrain thingie next to the minimap is ticked, it lifts the fog of war but makes all units invisible.

    Plus, he used the Chichen Itza wrong. It's supposed to raise defenses in your cities, not provide a set of stairs up the city walls.

    That looks to be a necessity. He clearly forgot about installing gates.

    Indeed though all he had was a a few swords facing my curs. Swords With a upcoming reinforcment of chariots and horse archers.(Yep those reinfocments should benefit from chitzen itza ;) )




    Also Chichen Itza and the great wall were built centuries before he had any strong enemies(Isolated small continent, few barbs. But thats not all, his Church of The nativity is useless without anyone to spread christianity too. His AP is useless without anyone to participate in elections, his Atremis is of low value if its only boosting the weak internal trade routes rather than strong foreign ones. He had all of this centuries before he met anyone. Despite his civs abilites for rapid exploration and expansion he instead he wasted his captials production on low to useless wonders.

    The result of his brilliance.

    On the 'crab assault' one, the harbor is completely blocked off from the city by a mountain, too. I realized that before anything
