Alright all, I have to admit I am a fairly less than average quality CIV player. Only started playing the series at CIV3 and loved it none the less. Anyway my problem is I just seem so poor at it on anything other than Noble. Although I usually get an early points lead on my opponents and I tend to get a few wonders I can never, and I mean never win a war fairly without having to resort to the World Builder after seeing my armies crushed while invading an enemies city. I'm alright at defending it is just attacking I seem to be lacking at. Any advice would be much appreciated. Also any advice on my starting tactics would be a great help too. I build my first city, tend to build a few of the basics like granary and barracks and then I usually build Stonehenge (is this wonder worth nearly 100 turns?). I also go straight for Polytheism for Hundu religion - worth while or Buddishm better? While stonehenge is building I then research animal husbandry, pottery, basically everything my first work needs to capture the nearby resources. I then build my first worker after stonehenge and begin capturing resources. I tend to go straight for writing at this point and knock out the occasional warrior/archers. Where am I going wrong? Cheers.
