This is one thing that has been bothering me in most of my games. I've looked at strategy guides that suggest getting a national college by turn 80 while having four cities in same amount of time. I'll typically only have three cities up by then and I usually don't get my national college until turn 120. So how can I get my cities up in reasonable amount of time without sacrificing early national wonders? My build order usually goes something like this: Scout------>Monument------>Shrine------>Worker------->Settler-------->Temple of Artemis------>Library------->Granary------>Settler------>Oracle------->Settler Are there any changes that you would make to that? I usually play on Emperor btw and this strategy is sufficient for that difficulty. I want some tips so I can move up to immortal.
