This is embarassing but I struggle playing on King difficulty. I thought I was decent until I started playing on King and realizing that I really didn't know how to do anything. I just kinda follow what the game tells me to do. I have advisory messages and stuff off but I really only build what the "Recommended" improvement is with my worker and never really micromanage my cities past Default Focus and having it auto-choose working tiles. I'm not really sure where to learn micromanagement or if there's a way to force myself to learn. Is it possible to turn off the recommended tile improvement thing? I kinda want to force myself to stop doing this automatically. I'm also clueless when it comes to build orders and policy orders. I really just to Tradition > Commerce > Rationalism > Freedom for every civ I play. I only go for Science and Cultural victories since I have absolutely no idea how to properly wage war. I always go into debt and unhappiness and end up hemorrhaging until I lose. I feel like I've hit a brick wall in skill and can't decide how to improve. Should I be forcing myself to play on Immortal or something to learn the game or is there a way to ease into it that I'm missing.
