On Warlord, I get Liberalism first easily on monarch and most of the time on emperor level. Strong beeline, but i usually can completly backfill with selling at worst edu on the last turn before, and on emperor sometimes lib itself. However, my tech lead vanish quickly beyond this point, and especially financial civs out-tech me significantly for a while. As I'm usually able to recover from this point, there must be something utterly wrong in my tech path choices or the civics. And that whether i do a cav rush or not. I run usually HE (with an obsolete's style heavy wonder capitol), but it happens also in pure CE or SE. I generally choose Nationalism from lib for taj, and then follow chem/railroad path if SE/HE or printing press if CE. So, what is the reccomended path at this point ?
