Just wow... I have played CiV for almost 1000 hours now, and it still amazes me just how much of a difference 10 upgraded SBs can make on an entire runaway continent.
Suleiman seemed to have the right idea on defending against me at first
But he never caught up to me.
Dude practically went from one of the top 3 largest armies of the world to zero save a few useless ships, in the span of a dozen turns.
British KIA: 1 Infantry, 1 Modern Armor, 2 Battleships, 3 Destroyers
Ottoman KIA: Their Entire Military
I'm going to try it with the one who has all of the uraniums. Certainly need to keep my SB stack out of range of those nuclear missiles Pachacuti (and Wu) are spamming at each other.
I'm content to let them continue their little nukefest, so long as it keeps Pachacuti away from my core cities.
Anyways, this seems like a nice spot to strike through...
I'm probably going to built more destroyers, subs and battleships, and some units other than my two offensive Modern Armor. I rather have a setpiece D-Day-from-the-back than something... cheesy as hell. Okay, it'll be just as cheesy given the size of the runaway, but at least I'll have a decent force to fallback on in case things go pear shape (with nukes).
