I've been getting very into tectonics but have traditionally played continents. For my tectonics games I've been going for 70% water and 12 civs on large which seems about right, I'd find only 7 AI civs to be somewhat empty personally. I've also grown pretty fond of Marathon speed, but it feels like such a different game compared to standard and epic. What does everyone else stick with most often? Oh, and Darius, Catherine, and Julius all the way. Been a long time civfanatics reader, first time poster.
