Crashes can be crushing...
I have to say I agree with whoever said this is not "real" playing. It's easy mode. You might as well play on Chieftain.
when i lose an important unit ...
.. or when an orc with strength 8 appears next to my cultural borders within first 25 turns ... but, if you lose the whole game and load initial save, does it count as reload ?
i re-load until i see some coast and river WITHOUT TUNDRA (no dead-zone for me).
i stop re-loading once a game begins, but i may re-roll my start for an hour or more if i have to.
I think most people have reloaded when for example losing a hero that had 90%+ chance to win.
However playing on a really high difficulty level and reloading every time somenthing doesnt go your way is really contradictive. And not a very interesting play session if nothing ever goes wrong.
I used to play like this when i was playing civ 1 in my teens and I told myself I was power-gaming and would not accept defeat when i attacked. But I realized i wasnt really playing the game as it was intended and gradually stopped, and got alot more out of the experience.
And please dont tell people you beat the game on a certain difficulty level if you used this tactic... :/
No one likes getting screwed over by a random mishap. I will say that I've played through a bit of bad luck from time to time and enjoyed it nonetheless. Sometimes it's fun to have my Donal Lugh be killed while besieging Dis.
