Has anyone hosted a game/series that uses the advance start feature? I know I haven't even played one with it. It would seem if you remove the early game and have everyone start in the medieval age with several cities, you would drastically change the game for the human player, who basically wins by beating the crap out of the AI with good REXING, rushing, and builbing in the ancient and classical eras. It seems most games are won by building some kind of advantage in the ancient, classic, and medieval eras to reach the Renaissance first. What if there were no early eras?
