First thread So I'm planning to take on the OCC as Ethiopia. I'm wondering what resource setting would be best for taking it on. Which is best for the OCC; "Abundant", "Legendary Start", or "Strategic Balance"? For my own experiences and what I've learned from other threads. Abundant means that Resources of all kinds are generally plentiful and Strategic Resources have more per tile than usual. That said, I've had plenty of cases where I have a small empire under abundant and wind up resource starved. Just recently I did a game as Korea on Prince and a huge map with 22 total civs and max city states on abundant. I was able to get 4 cities down and the end result: no horses, 9 iron from 1 source, no coal, no oil, 3 Aluminum, and 4 Uranium, while other civs with less cities had more resources. According to various threads, Legendary Start means that the player will have a bunch of resources where they initially spawn, but resources in the greater world are rather sparse. This looks the most promising. According to various threads, strategic balance means everyone will be able to have a little bit of everything or am I wrong on that? What's ya'll's advice?
