Anybody else play this combo? The dang barbs keep coming out of the woodwork and it's like stepping on ants, only because I'm on marathon I'm not producing new units quickly enough. Apparently the marathon speed does NOT slow the barbs down in producing THEIR units. I knew I'd need to hook up some copper first thing, so I knocked out a settler to found a second city near copper, and set up the road. I built barracks in both cities. Both cities are now still trying to produce enough axemen. As of now the barbs are just coming with warriors - I hate to think what happens when they come with axemen. Anticipating that, I've been promoting all my dudes up to combat 2 and shock. One thing I've learned is I need more roads; I just don't have the ability to produce any workers right now. Other civs keep coming to me asking to join in this war or that. How can you even think of fighting another civ? Don't you have all these waves of barbs coming after you over there?
