I pulled off a Deity warrior rush on the Earth18 civ map as Spain. Killed France and Rome before I had to switch to stronger units. It's fun. Cheezy. But fun. I quit after that, though. What's the point in continuing through to a tainted victory? A warrior rush is special in two ways. First it is dead-nuts simple. Just crank out a bunch of units and kill the nearest civ. Easy. Even a rank beginner who knows nothing about the game can pull it off. Secondly, at all levels the AI is programmed not to play for war in the first 80 turns. It would be easy to program warrior rushes in the AI but Firaxis refused to do it because it would ruin the fun factor. Despite what you say, the AI is decidedly handicapped in this area. This takes some skill. You actually have to have some notion of what to do with the money, for one thing. You may think it easy but it's not in the same category as warrior rushing. I am sorry I agree with Bleys. Warrior rushing is cheeze. This being said, it's just a game and the purpose is to have fun. It is enjoyable the first couple of times. After that, it's just lame.
