Nice post Mystiq, some good stuff in there
I am going to play through with Japan and England next. Japan is awesome for teching. It's kinda strange to see Tokugawa in the tech lead. I am used to him being dead last or close to it in Civ4.
England seems pretty good too. Those improved early archers can stave off alot of attacks and the early access to monarchy makes going for a cultural victory from the get go a very good idea.
C'mon people! Aztecs units auto-heal after every victory!!! This makes them great for offense but almost unbeatable on defense because they can't be worn down! For those who love to go to war (like me) it's GOTTA be the Aztecs.
The Americans are pretty solid, too : )
Thank you for pointing out my stupidity, Shadowplay. I played through a whole game with them last night, you'd think I could remember the right civ!
uh, I thought it's the Aztecs who instantly heal.
D'oh! I accidentally voted for Russia! My favorite one is Rome, though.
I really like England, they are great for any win (especially when you conquer most of the world). I think more people should try them out, and I suspect they will really like them.
Sorry to see that Romans are in the lead... I think it will change now after the patch, when it is much harder to build a mega city. Romans were only chosen by the ones running this weak strat. ;-) Didn´t like it myself, felt like cheating.
I think its because of the demo and the ''mega city'' stategy that was shown, but probubly wouldn't work in multiplayer
About 3 weeks ago i voted for mongolia, how stupid was i, they stink
No one voting for France, my PERSONAL favorite
I like Rome becuaes of the GP and wonder spamming
I voted for them
I thought that the Germans were great until I tried the Aztecs. Holy freaking crap. The auto healing skill is the best offensive skill ever bar none, period, and the starting gold means that you will get a free settler soon due to the 250 gold archievement. The other bonuses are definetly great as well (temples giving science, half cost roads and +50% gold generation). Easiest domination victory ever.
But being a builder myself, I have to say that the Indians and the Egyptians fit my playstyle way better.
