    Hello everyone, I'm Viralvoid, an avid reader on this forum. Last year, I decided to try all civilization available because I'm getting tired of playing the same civ over and over again. I tried playing as "random civ", which doesn't go well. Although unnecessary, I decided to make a write up on the civs that I will be trying to say something about that civ, which is quite exciting and share my experience with all of you. I'm not really good at writing stories and even in this language (English) since this is not my mother tongue.

    I'll be playing on Immortal, and will definitely try Deity if I feel comfortable enough. The maps and map settings will vary depending on the civ I'll be using, I know some of you will think that this is imbalance and will lean towards me, but this is Immortal, so the AI will still get the most benefits. I'm not going to play to test my skills, but to simply try all em', I'm not going to rank them or whatever.

    Other settings will be constant like the speed (standard), map size (standard), bad events were disabled, ancient ruin is on, and all victory type is available. I will start with the last on the list (Wu Zetian - China), and so on, I will change some of the game options, so not everything here is fixed. Starting on Pacal - Maya, I decided to add the same civ that I'll be playing then check some of his decisions and his standing.

    The framework of my write ups will be simple, starting with the:
    1. Civilization Overview - I'll be telling my opinion about the UA, UU, UB and UI of the civs that I'll be using.
    2. Geography and Initial Position - I'm going to explain my starting position, my decisions on settling cities and the location of other civilizations.
    3. Early Phase - I'm going to explain what I did during the Ancient to Classical era. I'm also going to tell my decisions, wonders I have built, technology path, and others.
    4. Middle Phase - Same with the above, but during the Medieval and Renaissance era.
    5. Late Phase - Same with above, but during the Modern and later eras.
    6. Winning Phase - I'm going to explain here how I won and beat the game.
    The screenshots were limited, so I couldn't say that this is a photojournal.

    At the moment, I'm playing as Oda, and finished writing until Suleiman.If you have any suggestions, questions about my decisions, and provide me some tips, I'm very open because I never played most of the civs here. I'm not an expert, so most of these were based on my opinion only, I will be glad if someone corrects me. Thank you everyone!
