For now we will keep your save in if others are happy to do so. It was quite a strong save compared to the rest. I do think you should try your skills at immortal. You dont know if you can beat a level till you try it. Kossin Bullpen is an excellent immortal guide to walkthroughs. He doesnt always get it right but some impressive play none the less. Barb events or silly DOW from huge French stacks cant be helped. For me the issue i have is the starts. if i set up 6-7 good cities i can normally walk emperor. Its how to judge what the strongest start for a leader is. This is especially true when playing the Celts. hunting really annoys me as a starting tech!
