Gs saving should be more powerful. If you aim for fast wins, you will have to reach 1000 bpt at some point, preferably before turn 200. There is no way you to get 8k beakers out of an academy. I like this opening. I stayed with liberty for my games so far and my fastest win on 4 cities was turn 253. I am currently playing a game as the mayans using liberty, were I am able to settle 8 unique luxuries with 7 cities. Will see if I can beat turn 230 by this but I feel that due to the growth bonus, tradition might be the way to go now for fast science.
