Any other marathon players having extremely slow tech progression? Playing on Prince continents, 15 players, 24 cs. As Assyria I am the tech leader in 1950 and it's still the industrial era with about 20 turns left for Biology, I'm guessing roughly 100-150 years behind where the world usually would be. If it wasn't for time victory being off, no one will accomplish anything. It seems many are saying the game is slower, perhaps it was poorly tested and exponential for the marathon setting; anyone else? From what I recall, tech growth seemed normal until about mid/late medieval -renaissance, during and after which tech completely bogged down. Players entered the medieval era about the usual time.
