    Hi!

    I recently stumbled into an earth18 MP game and of course got a serious beating for not prioritizing construction, while starting in Europe. I was searching a bit for mp strategy, but I found very little, except the few guides in the War Academy that mostly relate to pangaea FFA.

    A few specific questions appeared to me.

    1. GE bulbing can be used to get an advantage or thats just a waste?

    2. Culture seems to be quite important in Europe to grab land from the beaten opponents?

    3. Most civs should be moving Capital?

    Germany -> Copper if they survive?
    Rome or Spain to peaks for strategic reasons?

    Please share a bit of insight, i wanna beat you :crazyeye:

    How many opponents? If you can, warrior rushing 1/2 to 3/4 of europe is ridiculously strong. Russia, Persia, and China have solid starts.

    If tech trades are off and the difficulty is reasonably challenging, the new world is viable too.

    We were about 10/18. Spain, Rome, Greece, France, England, Germany and Russia human. AI Difficulty seems to be noble by default.

    I've never play multiplayer but I gotta think you need military, military and more military . I would think most humans will be more agressive and better strategist. I would go after military techs first especially defensive ones and expand cautiously. Go after weak AIs when possible and obtain borders such as mountains or water wherever possible. Religion and wonders probally won't be very useful. Production and science should be high priority.

    (note: you'd get better answers if we knew what civ/starting spot you were in, and who around you was AI or Human. But...)

    If the AI is set to Noble, you should probably warrior rush close AIs.

    Worker first, tech to whatever strategic resource you've got (Iron = Axemen), kill.
