BEHOLD THE PITATI SWARM. Turn 60. Diety. Pangea. Huge. Standard Speed. Mods: Milder relations, 8 Ages of Pace. So-so start. Just got Pol Phil on turn 60 (couldn't get the inspiration). Pretty much every icon you see on the screen is a Pitati archer. Killed the Mongols. The Romans are next. Build order? Got 3 cities (no one spawned close, so I could afford to get a little greedy). Then spammed Pitati archers (which are cheap as Nubia). If someone spawned close to me, I wouldn't have built a settler. The first tech was Mining. Went builder first this game (for forest chops if I feel threatened, or to farm the wheat if there was no immediate threat- in this game I ended up farming the wheat resources- in games where I'm feeling more threatened, I could have 6 slingers by turn 15 or 20). The key to winning on Diety is to play Nubia and to NEVER STOP BUILDING PITATI ARCHERS. Add in an occasional monument or builder for chops or culture, but otherwise, stick to building Pitati archers. Beeline Agoge, and don't bother building any other unit other than the occasional scout. Just get slingers, get agoge, save your money, upgrade the slingers to Pitati archers, then build even more Pitati archers. Add in a scout or two for city taking and the game is yours to win. Currently on 25 Pitati archers. Once you hit 40-50, the only difficult part of the game is the amount of management required to move them from one location to the next.
