    I'm a fan of Regent and Epic. Are there specific difficulty and speeds settings you prefer for individual civs?

    As a casual player with no objective but to please myself, I used to play on Heir. Now, I play on Regent, where things feel much more balanced. I'm forever a fan of Marathon, though. A lot more can be done in a given number of turns.

    I prefer regent/epic right now. Not much to worry about, and plenty of turns to leverage your advantage.

    I've been playing monarch/normal a lot, seems to give a good balance of things happening with some disadvantages to overcome. Used to play Civ on epic a lot but don't have the patience anymore.

    I have always been playing on Marathon ever since it became available. On difficulty, I started on the easiest difficulty and went to the next one.

    Mostly the default Regent and Normal. Which is what the game is supposedly balanced for, right?

    I almost never play anything other than 3000 BC start, though.

    Epic or Marathon if UHV requires military expansion. (ie Romans, Arabs, Mongols...)
    Normal if no military expansion.

    Level Regent because a game requires several turns spread on several days and i cannot remember each micromanagement.

    I use to play Epic/Monarch but with newest version (git) I play default (Normal/Regent), because there has bee so many changes and additional futures that I need to get use to.

    I wish there was a speed slower than Marathon. And a bigger map than the one we have now.

    RFCDOC out of every Civ game I've played gives the true experience that I'm looking for with a game like Civ. I only wish it had a random mode...

    I'm trying Russia on Monarch for the first time in a long time and I'm wondering whether there are more barbarian spawns or if it's just confirmation bias.

    You need to play Emperor/Paragon to see a difference.

    Difficulty depends on the civ but usually Regent or Monarch. Speed epic, not too fast, not too slow

    Paragon/Marathon. It is like a drug - once you tried the most difficult, you always wants only this one. But on paragon it is almost impossible to use any other speed except Marathon.
