Won 2 science victories with only 7 cities!(Pangea Epic) On King I would have 10-12 cities because of my warmongering. This is a lot harder on Emperor as the leading 2 civs runaway with wonders, huge armies and lots of gold. I have to choose my moment more carefully usually when a neighbour attacks or is attacked by another Civ I then move in and take his cities, but that is all I can acheive in this respect. Building a massive army would wreck my economy. I start with being friendly with most civs, and much more micro management. But winning by science victory alone is getting boring. In my last game I had 650 tourism and 685 culture, and still could only influence 1 civ! Also how can leading civs build so many wonders and still create massive armies? In my last game it was Washington with 27 cities, over 800K soldiers and more beakers tham me. What more do I have to do to get a culture victory, the numbers mentioned above are the most I have ever had, and still not cose to a CV. PLaying at lower level was more fun, but I will probably stick with Emperor. Maybe its time to stop playing after 4305 hours!! Keep threatening to play EU4 but never do. I wonder if it wise to play wiith modded civs, in this case Hitler.
