975 BC: I am at war with Korea in the North and Mongols in the West. I have gathered Khazars, Takeda and Gorg to help my fight. On the second continent, I have declare War to Tokugawa allying all the second continent civs to fight. It will be Toku vs all. Oda joins for WM. Rome with Confucius. Tokuda need Lit & WM & Contact with Raja & 34 GP. I am not sure if this is wise
Ottomans want the same except for only 4 GP.
Army is 20 Swords, 4 Horse, 21 Warriors. My army is strong to everybody
Infrastructure is 1 Granary and barracks in the RNG core. I am now building mostly Horseman and still some Warrior for the upgrade.
Research is still at 10% (lux at 20%) so I have still 746 GP (+44 GPT).
I will concentrate on crippling the AI so that I can get more confident in the game and take the lead getting more space and a second core up and running.
950 BC: Just lost 2 swords vs a spear. I hate RNG. Baekje have the Republic
I need the Great Lib to get back to tech parity
900 BC : One of my town south (Nanking) just flipped to Baekje. I new I should have rushed Culture. My only culture is the Palace for a very low 144.
850 BC : Failed the gambit on currency. Bad news. I buy Shaminism from Kuroda for WM & 10 GPT & 133 GP. Entering in Middle Ages
. I continue my war against the weak Koreans & Mongols just gaining more territory. I am building more horse that are dying quite fast in the fight despite my limited usage of it.
630 BC : My full army is 32 Swords & 12 Horse. I have repositioned my army to attack Baekje from the North in order to grab the GL. I target the Gem city with 1 Sword & 4 Horse. I have Josu under attack of 2 Swords
waiting for more comrades. I have my main army slowly migrating towards Chonan across the jungle and parking it on the Mountain close (ROP with Khazars). I am building a road to be faster. Baekje do not have Iron connected so I will face only Archers (few Sword if they had a deal for iron
In the south I have put my 2 spear and my 6 cats with 2 swords in defense behind walls.
I Give Currency for Khazars to join the war. Gorg joins the fight for Currency & WM & 4 GPT & 8 GP & Dyes. Takeda & 12 GP & WM vs Currency & Construction. So that I hope my South front will be receive help from my allies.
I have a Gorg leader waiting desperately to join his cities
but trapped in my territory north. He may need to go through all the Raja territory to get there
I had hoped this leader was going to move through the Baekje territory when I would force the war it would have been even more fun.
610 BC : Takeda now has Republic but I will soon have it too. I exchange WM and gain a slave from Khazars. I have 3 Wa & 1 Bow from Mongols coming to attack my South Front where I have parked 4 sword & spear & Cats
rushing them as soon as pop grow.
510 BC: I am ready to attack Chonan with 7 swords & 1 horse and win. I will rest a bit and continue towards Taejon so that all my territory is linked and I will benefit from the Incense & Spices & Furs from the south to combine with the Dyes & Silks & Gems of the North.
430 BC : I win back Nanking in the south, 4 Swords, One spear and 4 cats did the job.
I have stopped building units and will be working with the current army (32 Swords & 16 Horse). My RCP is now building libraries and then Market to benefit from the lux. I am still building settler from my capital in order to fill the gaps left by the dying Koreans. The corrupted towns are slowly building temple then Harbors where needed to get to decent size.
410 BC: My first GL emerges. I rushed FP in Nanking, the town that flipped to Baekje earlier on. It was my intended place for FP with 2 towns at RCP 3, with Taejon and soon Kunsan, it will be 4.
370 BC : I have just conquered the Great Lib.
350 BC: Revolution for 6 turns of Anarchy
290 BC : I have a second leader. He will rush Hanging Gardens at the FP. I will then continue the attack and I bring a second leader. But I had poor RNG with Elite Sword loosing against damaged Spear (85 % success). My second leader builds an army.
230 BC : I am in Republic but I have so few infrastructure that I better continue my re-search at 10 %. I rush some temples around Khazars area and wait for the construction of the Libraries
I badly need culture.
130 BC : Time to make some deals. Ott : WM & 2 GPT & 16 GP vs Incense. Takeda : WM & 5 GPT & 48 GP vs Incense.
10 BC : I have now Engineering. I will search Invention at max while building some Horseman to build up a decent army of riders. I have another leader rushing back Sun Tzu. I have sending some forces on the order continent to finish the Baekje and Koreans are already dead. The next targets are the Khazars and the Gorg.
30 AD : I enter my GA triggered by wonders. I did not planned it but so be it. Mongols are dead
with Horse by 100 AD
170 AD : I trade Engineering to Samurai Code with Ott and I make a deal with India Incense vs 6 GPT & WM & 59 GP. I upgrade 19 Rider for 1520 GP. I have an Elite leader with a defending Horse
on the other continent. I need to grab a town to rush some building. I have rush a junk to ferry some more units to capture the capital of Baekje.
230 AD : Rider Army is ready to attack the Khazars. I will join already attacking forces of Gorg and Takeda. Balkhash E of their capital with 4 Riders and a sword. Hovd W of their capital with 4 Riders. I have some workers ready to move in an rebuild roads and irrigate.
250 AD : Baekje are dead
. I rush the Leonardo with the preserve leader so that I have the extra culture on the other continent. I launch my attack on Khazars. I win the first towns moving towards the Capital with the rest.
260 AD : Terrible luck with the RNG. I lost 5 riders attacking a Khazars spear now redlined and protecting a leader. My last war I think. I will research GunPowder at 80% in 4 turns.
280 AD : India trades Music & WM & 79 GPT & 144 GP vs Invention. I give techs away to bring everybody happy. I move in to attack Gorg because Khazars are now dead
330 AD : I get silks from Kuroda gifting outdated techs. I give GunPowder to everybody grabing some more luxs : Wines and Wool. I then build an army with my last leader. I should make the JS bach just before India (13 turns). In case, I miss it, I will try to grab another leader with Gorg. I killed the Togu
so that I will be owning my own Wines resource
410 AD : One more leader that I keep slowly waiting for the kill of Gorg. I am protecting them from marauding Otts forces. I want to keep chances to generate a leader. I am building a constant infrastructure Libraries / Market / Unis & Banks in order to have a good research & a good commerce..
530 AD : I finish Gorg failing to generate another leader under the pressure of pillaging Ott. I was short of Elite Rider. No big deal. My preserved leader rushed Magellans so that Takeda do no have it.
580 AD: I enter IA, still in Republic with my workers waiting in my core so that I am ready to rails things.
Colossus (constructed by Koreans 1525 BC)
Hanging Gardens (Rushed by Leader 290 BC)
Great Lib (thanks to Baekje 1125 BC)
Oracle (thanks to Gorg 1575 BC)
Sun Tzu (rushed by leader 30 AD)
Leonardos (rushed by leader 250 AD)
Copernicus (rushed by leader 310 AD)
JS Bach (rushed by leader 400 AD)
Magellans (rushed by leader 510 AD)
Smith (handbuilt 530 AD)
Newtons (handbuilt 580 AD)
And 2 armies
I have constantly a Palace prebuilt so that I am ready for next wonder
and easily leading in techs. I am gifting to other and considerered going for domination but will try to manage AI search path (?)
I have also moved some settler to fill gaps in my continent and grab a Wool lux in second continent rushing Libraries & Uni (for Culture battle).
