Temple of Artemis - Is it better to build this when you have a tall/Tradition empire that already has a lot of food, such as one located on an endless river system? Or is it better to build in empires where you have small cities with not much food, to compensate for the lack of food? Mathematically, the wonder increases growth rate more in taller cities, but is less needed there. In fact, this question seems to be part of a broader dilemna where I often wonder if it's better to cover up a weakness or boost a pre-existing strength. I've had this question a lot in other situations. In a multiplayer game I played a few months ago, I was located on an insane, flat river system and build Temple of Artemis rather early. I had 3 insanely tall Tradition cities and far more aggregate population than everyone else at the end. From the start, I knew that if I got that wonder, combined with my high growth land, that I would pretty much be set for the game as long as I had enough hammers to defend in case of attack. But I wonder if I obtained more benefit from that situation than say, one where I had low-growth lands. What do you think?
