Hi guys! My last entry on "My Own Civilopedia" is about the technology of Bronze Working. I'm looking forward for your comments. WHAT SHALL WE SEARCH FOR? BRONZE WORKING There’s always some debate among veteran players on which technology should be researched in the first place. My personal opinion favours the discovery of Bronze Working. This technology will allow your cities to build the best defensive unit for many centuries to come – the Phalanx. The problems with Bronze Working No problems at all. The good things about Bronze Working Besides the direct benefit of becoming able to build Phalanx units, the discovery of Bronze Working allows the future discoveries of Currency (crucial for reaching Trade and then build Caravan units) and Iron Working (key to the discovery of many military and technical advances). Furthermore, Bronze Working allows you to construct one of the two cheapest Wonders of the World – the Colossus (the other being Lighthouse). The rapid discovery of Bronze Working is even more important when you face competition in your territory – you need to defend your cities properly. Last but not the least, Bronze Working has no prerequisite. If your starting location is not that good (by the game standards), you might even start with Bronze Working already discovered. Conclusion: If you like to avoid military operations at an early stage and prefer to develop your civilization before engaging in wars, there is no better option to start with than discovering Bronze Working.
