Got my first game in the bag...just some basic Emancipation Victory tips I learned..... Build a few units in advance to be ready to go through the gate when complete. You'll need units totalling 1000 strength for the victory (but you don't need them all right away, as you can only send one unit through the gate per turn). The EG takes awhile to complete. Change your trade routes to trade production with the city that is building the gate to decrease the time. Initially my game indicated it would take 80 turns to complete but through trading I got it down to about 20. Figure out what units you have you can build quickly that have a good strength number and that don't use up all your Strategic Resources. Have a road/magrail built from your most productive cities to where the gate is. On a side note, it was my understanding that the other Civs would gang up on you once you completed the gate to keep you from running away with the win. That did not happen to me. Possible because I played on the easiest level? Not sure.... Video here: Link to video.
