The last game I ever lost was on chieftan before I found this website. Since then I've destroyed warlord and regent, all kinds of maps. It's getting to the point where even on regent I can build every city improvement and every wonder, which can't be a good habit to get into. I was thinking about moving up to monarch but it seems like people say it's not much harder than regent. Will emperor have the challenge I'm looking for without being frustrating? Should I try demigod? Monarch? I like to micromanage my core cities but find it tedious to spend half my day micromanaging everything so I guess Deity and Sid are out of the question.
