Nice guide Moriarte
Few questions :
Is it possible, in BNW, for a regular civ to stop by Machinery(before Education) and push up even more and earlier if opponents aren't warmonger crazy? I'm guessing that China and England can do it automatically. Same for Arabia and Mongols or maybe Songhai for Chivalry?
There is a gap between CBs and artillery. What if you fail at capturing early cities? Is it still faisible? Thoughts?
Well you insist about the ''safe'' part so it's all about happiness capacities and AI relations i guess.
Absolutely. I did it once with Poland. (used XB for protection from AI's who had enough of me) Pushed back and kept conquering, but mostly, I guess, due to the nature of Poland being the best civ for early protectionism. I find this path too stressful, btw .
Well, no strat is perfect recipe. If you fail, you can at least keep trimming that civ until reinforcements arrive, GE for NC makes sure you'll be among first in the world to get Xmen, all the while pumping units.
