    Not going Worker / WB first is a big fail, unless you go and steal Workers with the Warrior, but even then, you're better of most often, especially when you don't play Marathon, where units cost less and where you got more time to find an enemy Worker you can steal.

    Protecting the capital is unnecessary in the first xy turns (until Barbs pop pop up or even later when playing without barbs) .

    You seem to totally not be aware of how important the starting phase of a game is. You wasted turns on exploration, that could have been spent on Worker production. Then you build a Warrior and delay the Worker even more. You got very strong tiles, every turn you delay the Worker, you're losing a turn on working those tiles earlier. This snowballs so greatly over the course of the round, that it can be safely said that you screwed up majorly already. Better fix it now or it'll only get worse.

    Hi Mattik! Sorry for the delay! I sent my save to Imperator Knoedel on July, 13. The fault for the delay before that date was mine.:sad:

    Whoa! This map is little crowded! In this latest turn on year 3800 BC I made contact with Greece, Carthage, and Spain! I expect to make contact with Germany in couple of turns. Can I expect France and Byzantine as well?

    On another subject, what are you others doing while you wait for turns? I'm having a break with single player and now I'm catching up with last season's anime. I got through of Plastic Memories just recently, I have just one episode left of Kiniro Mosaic, and next I'll watch Sound! Euphonium. Of this season I'm following Monster Musume and Gate.

    Gate should be of interest for Civ players. Stargate appears in middle of Tokyo and medieval/fantasy army marches out of it. Spearmen, swordsmen, archers, knights, and run-of-the-mill fantasy brutes against JSDF's (mechanized) infantry, modern armor, artillery and gunships. As you'd expect. Dragons too.

    So what are you up to?

    Funny, I tried my best at making the map not crowded.

    Well, I am in lots of other PBEMs, play CSGO and kinda have to work on a scientific paper due in, oh, two weeks.

    On this turn I noticed I had moved my warrior past a village. I got the village now, and on next turn I move my warrior back to the square where it started this turn. 1 turn of movement wasted...

    Yes. Most of it. I'm short of newest Arise OVA & TV-series. I've got all the manga (as far as I know) uncensored and 1 light novel too. Great stuff, all of it.

    Have you seen Armitage III and Bubblegum Crisis?

    Little has happened in the game. My warrior continues exploration towards north, but hasn't found Germany yet. Work boat will be finished soon. I'll be out for weekend and unable to play a turn until sunday evening in GMT +2 timezone.


    Yes and yes. Cyberpunk both of them. Bubblegum Crisis is 6 episode long OVA. Armitage III is 4 episodes + sequel named Dual-Matrix.
