Should I feel called out, here ? I proposed some nonsense, sure, but I didn't hide it.I meant I am not sure if some of the proposed strategies are for maximising winning chance or winning with style points. Not just you but some other posters.
I also gave my honest opinion about what the best opener is. Maybe you missed that ?
BW -> AH -> Pottery is, imho, a pretty unforgiving choice , specifically on Deity difficulty. BW -> AH sets you up for expansion with no commerce support and the delay towards Pottery is a huge handicap. This is the classic scenario where your own maintenance kills you (but then, maybe not on this map).
Agriculture first (playing Car, Pool and Karaoke) forces a Wheel follow up, which can be defensible if one commits to the Great Wall. It is a considerable delay towards Bronze, though. I guess one has to question the value of the Wall, right ?
Ditching the Wall and going Fishing first (workboat completes at size 2 with 6 hpt, which is huge) allows a direct Agri -> BW line. Fishing has ample time to pay off and the earlier Bronze allows for the best REx (provided you don't die to barbs). Maybe then you can even get an Academy, if you do not have wonders spread over several cities.
I do not feel qualified to comment on later matters,
ps : to come back on the map. Some maps allow for some very special things that one could not try elsewhere. They are an occasion.
