*shrugs* I'm reading the thread because I haven't solved it. I always end up having to fight it out with a barb camp because I don't have enough early units to screen all the camps from all my cities. Doesn't stop me from winning games on Immortal. Arguably it helps me since I end up using the army I build for barb fighting against another civ; this wouldn't be my preferred playstyle if the game didn't drag me into it, but it is more efficient than what I actually want to do. My points is that repeatedly doing something because you think it should work, even though you've seen that it doesn't work, is the stereotypical definition of insanity. You're not actually catching and destroying the scouts, right? What makes you think you will the next time you try it?
