Hey guys, I just joined after a few months of lurking Anyway, I recently moved up to Emperor, and playing as India to try to get the Bollywood achievement (cultural victory with 3 cities or less) and I'm having trouble balancing my military and not falling too behind with my culture. My last game I got steamrolled by Spain about 75 turns in, even though I had a war elephant, an archer and a warrior. Is this not enough? Whenever I build/buy more than that I feel I fall too far back. For culture, I always open with tradition but I'm considering going into liberty for the worker and the culture discount when founding new cities, and then finishing it later. Is this a viable strategy? Science wise, I go Pottery -> Writing -> worker techs -> Philosophy (oracle) -> Drama + poetry for amphitheaters. Any tips would be appreciated Ps: I don't really want to move down a difficulty either because I can win just about every game on King, and it wouldn't be fun for me if I knew I was going to win right off the bat. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I usually try to go for a religion pretty quickly, and I whenever I can I pick cathedrals and the one that gives you culture for every 5 followers in other civs.
