Hi everyone! I'm amateurgamer88. As you can see in the title, I'm returning to Immortal difficulty on Marathon Speed. It has been awhile since I have done Marathon speed so expect this to be a bumpy ride There are a couple of reasons for this. First, Deity feels like a grindfest without making the game noticeably harder. Secondly, the game is quite long so this can be a very long series. Unlike my A-Z Leader and A-Z Nation playthroughs, this series will be at least 3 times as long. If you don't like this slow games, then this isn't for you. I know I'm not a great player so I appreciate any advice as I want to learn more. I have many areas lacking so feel free to point them out to me. I like to improve more as I actually want to eventually win some deity matches. As a result, I'm doing these playthroughs to learn and maybe people can give some criticism. This game uses the 6-12 version with a few minor mods like extra maps and improved city view. I usually play with 3rd and 4th UC but the latest version isn't out yet. This is Standard Size Continents map with high sea level and strategic balance. I also picked a random civ and I got the Shoshone. Since I don't enable ruins, the Shoshone isn't as strong. However, I also play without ruins against the Shoshone so I think this is only fair. An additional note is that, due to various reasons, I have to play this game windowed so, in later eras, you'll see the various things like gold, resources and etc overlapping. I also have to lower my graphic setting so my game can run smoother. I apologize for that but it's the limitations I work with.
