Hi guys. I've been trying to play on Standard game speed lately and get my ass kicked hard by AI. There are several aspect I cant keep up with them: - Tech level: AI on Standard seems to advance in tech very quickly, I was always behind by 4 to 5 techs and there was always a civ that run away very far ahead. - The wonder race: there are wonders Im very confident to get on Epic which gone very early on Standard. - The unit replenishment: It seemed that I wasnt able to kill the AI units fast enough, even if I prepared very carefully for the war. The AI always had some troops left and the war dragged for too long, until they have more advanced unit and pushed me back... - Religion: Yeah... Unless I played a civ with faith bonus, I cant found at all, and capturing a holy city is not an easy task... I know there are a lot of more experienced players here who can easily beat Deity on Standard. Can you share some tips for doing so? Its funny that I can beat Deity very comfortably on Epic but Standard is too hard.
