    trebs first then knights (and then curassiers). I'm sure we can win this with trebs/maces/elephants.

    sadly, not too much to report. I tried to clean out a bit over by Hastings, and worked on getting a road up to the north.

    Sadly, I lost a handful of units doing both, as well as losing two workers who were ambushed by teh Aztecs (even though I had a unit on them; it got kilt).

    Techwise, I did Med>Currency>Engineering>Feudalism (we're saving up for now).

    I used our GG in Coventry:


    We've got some units coming towards London:

    Thinking maybe walls might be good investment, if only for the the peace of mind.

    Here's a look at Hastings (mostly) free of danger:

    notice i'm working on mining up those gems, maybe pushing the front out further in that direction to keep the city square clear

    Here's our army moving west:

    I didn[t feel confident enough splitting our army as of yet so i figured we could clear out the west a bit while we wait for more units.

    Oh, and we're Colossal:


    wondering if we should mostly just focus on cranking out units everywhere at this point. I q'ed up some buildings in our cities, but perhaps we should just spam army (sparmy?) and attack? idk, my cIV is still rusty . . .

    I have it. In fact, I have played a set. Pics and report to come.

    Edit: I teched through to Guilds - at break even, that is 15 turns. I might have played one or two more than that because I burnt some $s on a few unit upgrades.

    I started the set with 7 workers :(. That just isn't enough. So I built some more workers, stole one from Monty (Woodie III Maces are awesome) and also worked on our health. I feel that I have been banging on about our lack of food ... well ... lack of health certainly doesn't help on the food front.



    The top F1 shot is from the start of my set (food / health challenged). Why? Because we haven't connected wheat, cows or fish. The wheat is understandable because we have a bunch of Frenchies looking at down at that tile.

    Not anymore ...



    I roaded red dots and then used the units from Hastings (including some of the archers) to clean our those french dudes. I also hit some incoming units on flat ground ... that is a great time to kill those units.

    What else did I do ... fishing village ...



    I also captured Sparta. And we got a Great Prophet ... Jewish Shrine ... good for 12g per turn. This city needs a market and grocer.

    I don't feel that I had much military luck. While attacking (43 times), I was victorious 34 times, lost 6 times and withdrew (once) or decimated the opponent (twice). While defending, I lost 6 out of 15 battles ... some at pretty horrible odds.

    Some examples ...
    While defending in English territory near York, War Elephant 12 (London) loses to French Axeman (1.25/5) (Prob Victory: 77.5%)
    While defending in English territory near York, Horse Archer 2 (London) loses to French Axeman (4.00/5) (Prob Victory: 67.4%)



    End of set ... we have 14 workers - feeling better now :).

    A picture-less report today.

    Research went through Aesthetics and Alphabet with Gunpowder 4 turns away.

    I resettled the ex-Aztec city and captured another Aztec city as well as Athens (Great Library and Parthenon) and Sparta. Think Alex only has one city left, which we should raze.

    Our first spy should hit Aztecia next turn, I've switched our EP to him. If we could steal Philosophy would help towards Military Tradition.

    Need more trebuchets and knights at the front.

    Wheat at Hastings got razed and there are a few units hanging around.

    pholk is UP.

    So, I played about ten turns. I forget how much different this AI is compared to 5 and esp. 6. It definitely finds and exploits your weaknesses.

    Merged this GG:


    Romans capitalize on a lightly defended city:

    (this is the 2nd time they took it)

    And the Mongols as well:


    I was able to clear out Hastings again:

    There's a 4 stack coming in now from the east. I put up a sign for maybe a new city to the east to take the pressure off Hastings a bit, and push the frontier out more.

    Took the city back:

    I'm thinking that we should take out Rome first before we finish off Greece and the Aztecs just b/c they have the ability to hurt us more.

    Guns came in:

    I started on Chemistry next.

    We're the Pontifex Maximus:


    I refounded the torched city:


    Here's the small stack we have in Rome:

    I moved the stack not realizing that we had one Knight w no MPs left. The Roman city has about 8 or 10 units there.

    England! England!

    Home!

    London finishes: Heroic Epic

    I decided that London should get the Heroic Epic as ... you know ... London has hammers. It is pointless putting something in a city to advantage the production of units if it can't actually produce the units. I whipped this city as often as I could (note the whip anger :)) ...



    And this poor city ... it is going to starve ... we can't have that.



    Lots of fighting around this city ...

    Nice. I'm assuming we've lost Nolition but will give a day or so before I pick it up just in case.

    And onwards we go...

    We research Banking, think about going Mercantilism but the 2 turns of anarchy is no good.



    Merge this GG for 11xp Knights.



    Philosophy done.


    Exec decision time. Golden Age :dance:



    Civics swap, thought about Vassalage but went against in the end.



    Greeks are dead



    Nationalism done.

    Aztecs gone.



    We should be able to steam roll it home now, especially with Curassiers.

    pholk is UP.
