Hi guys! I played Civ 5 for over 150 hours already. Sadly all those games were steamrolling enemies by domination on easiest difficulty. After watching some history documentaries I decided I want to have some fun with Civ again, but this time on normal difficulty and I want to learn how to play this game for real. I tried one game already. Setup: Russia, cause i like double resources, huge Earth map, with marathon speed of the game, max available amount of other civs and city-states. I wanted to have long huge game to learn. It wasnt bad at the beggining as I didnt know many other civs, but after I discovered them or they discovered me I recognized how bad I am at this game. I am second last in points with best Civ having 3x points I have. I struggle to get positive happiness, barely got positive gold per turn balancing between +0 to +10. I would like to still go domination victory as I just like to conquer whole world, but I am already scared of any other Civ declaring war on me looking at the military rankings . My only achievments in this game are 2 conquered city-states. I decided to get some help and advices. I am not really sure if my whole setup is good to learn to play, also looking at the points I kind of suck at this game despite I try to make good decisions (they are good at least in my mind when I think about them) and plan my next turns. I saw and read few guides and I feel like I understand the basic game mechanics, but probably my choices for domination victory are just bad.
