So, I'm still trying to get a grasp on how this tradition thing works but i just cannot figure it out. First of all, The satellites are unbelievably slow when it comes to building stuff; I get it, you trade off expansions productivity for an amazing capital but the capital no matter how glorious it is, I cannot make it compensate for the lack of meaningful satellites especially for building troops which brings me to the second question. Supply .... how am i supposed to defend myself with this low numer of units? I keep getting into a loop of hitting the max supply cap (around 12 in early classical), but it's too low compared to neighbors so no matter how friendly they are or how many trade routes/trade deals we have they just turn hostile, pillage my stuff because i can not take the fight outside my land due to the same issue of low supply and low overall number of troops. Gold ...... am i supposed to be gold starved as well even with Petra, Spirit of the desert and an army not big enough to take one city? I'm clearly really bad at playing tall so if i might ask what am i doing wrong or is there actually a point in playing like this? i feel like i'm intentionally shooting myself in the leg.
