    I found the Greek videos very helpful. It altered my mindset when playing the early game. I'm not up to Deity yet, but now I have some idea of what I'm supposed to be doing.

    Mr. Kazuy04 why aren't you posting any more videos? I've been waiting for other Civs. I find your tutorial very helpful and would want to watch more of your tips.

    At the moment I watched some of your videos but didn't like your strategies, so much, by 1450 AD having 110 science per turn only isn't a good tip for new players. With romans you could do much better, and now the mega city strategy can't be used. With chinese I uploaded a video where I had like 2600 science per turn by 1450 AD, and future technology. I had luck having a room to expand, but I have normally about 500 science if others aren't rushers, in that case I would wait, unless I'm using other civs.

    About greeks, by 2500 AD you should have at least 100 gold and you should attack barbarians first. Online I don't suggest to take your first villages so late, because if you get free gold only after 10 turns, while the other got it perhaps in 5 turns, you would have many disadvantages.

    What difficulty do you play on? I have never been able to reach 2600 science per turn by 1450 AD on Deity, that's ridiculous.

    I believe his videos are perfectly able. Getting 100 science per turn is good at 1450 AD, considering your only getting techs that are worth 350 beakers. If you're talking about the mega city strategy, that doesn't work anymore.

    As well, how could the Romans do better? Explain how the Romans are any better at teching then the Greeks. Other then the fact that the Greeks start with a Courthouse and Democracy, their teching is the same; it all depends where you build your cities and their placement.

    I played about 700 ranked games, and play on deity when I want to try a strategy. In 2k games forum they wanted to see the strategy than I made a video, I know it's italian, and you can't understand everything, but it was to know the strategy and if you keep open your eyes you can see in the last step I had about 2300-2600 science per turn

    At the end I didn't see that there were others pictures needed and then now it finishes before I launch the nuke.

    In 1450 you should not attack ennemies with armies of knights but with armies of tanks or artillery. I agree with the comments of MorteEterna
