    A thread inspired by a thread inspired by a thread.

    1. Always annex cities, especially as France.

    2. Build new cities near Russia, Catherine doesn't mind that.

    3. If 10 Japanese units are near your borders, then Oda just really likes exploring!

    Open Borders if you have no military with your neighbour

    Build no units. Complain when people declare on you.

    :lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: The sad thing is, this is a common complaint thread!

    As for my advice, Autocracy and Freedom have good synergy.

    Leave you only worker unattended while exploring the world with you single warrior to find as many ruins as possible.

    Send your settler to that 7 tile away beautiful ZOMG 3xgems hill+river location without any escort.

    Give breathing space between cities so that a previosly beaten 1 city Civ can come and settle 1 pop city later in the game on the main trade highway between your capital and the rest of your empire.

    Order your scout to move 2 tile each turn so they can end up just to a barb camp.

    Fight on marsh, if not possible on grassland and deserts. Enjoy the scenery.

    Always attack over rivers. Maybe the Divine Will favor your troops and divide the river for safe passage.


    Research first sailing then optics regardless of map.

    Choose England on Pangae map for that extra challenge.

    Choose raging barbarians on Deity for that spicy flavor.

    Move your Great General around in his chariot/jeep without escort. After all he is a great general.

    can go on...
