I use the word "starve" as in make the city useless. No production, no food output and so forth. I have been unable to take this city, even though I have captured two of, I believe, four cities. This one just won't fall even with %0 defense. So I wonder if I could just go total war type and pillage every improvement and trade connection to it. Kind of like starve it out until the AI either surrenders or abandons it. I don't want to just keep feeding my units as fodder to the city. http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/8042/starvejustinianxo2.jpg There is only 1 connection left to the city AFAIK. I just want to know will this work or does it have any affect at all?
