Hi all; I'm thinking of making the Noble to Prince jump, and am wondering what the impact of the increased difficulty is. For context, I'm a long-time Civ player (Civ 1-4 and CTP) who recently returned to Civ IV after several years of Civ III. I had picked up Civ 4 back when Warlords was new, and found it frustrating to play at Noble so I switched back to III for a while. Anyway, I decided to give IV a try again, and am really enjoying it this time around. Due to reading the forums and War Academy articles, I'm finding the learning curve a lot more pleasant this time around. I've been working my way through the Noble's Club games , with good success so far (cultural victory as Elizabeth, diplomatic as Ramses, working on conquest/domination with Kublai). I'm thinking a couple more at Noble max, before I kick it up a notch and see how Prince goes so I figured it was a good time to gather some info on what to expect.
