    Let’s all remember that we can change policies any turn we want (IF there is enough gold available). I have actually used this a couple of times.

    EDIT: Finally actually voted (Standard speed). I am (by accident) playing a std speed game at the moment, much prefer my usual epic speed for its immersion value.

    That is so true. I usually forget about that option as it’s not efficient but can be very useful.
    I voted for online for several reasons. Your units go obsolete so fast, by the time they get to the front they need to be upgraded. The game moves really fast so optimal game play is required. However after reading these posts marathon may be harder. It can be real punishing early on if you get horse barbs.

    I play epic deity on large maps. I do think your settings play a factor into difficulty.

    I don't know about difficulty, but playing on marathon is torture for me in Civ6.

    As well as purchasing units to replace dead ones . . . as long as you have the gold.

    Gold costs are also significantly inflated on slower speeds.

    No more than the number of turns is inflated for the gold to be earned. It’s a COW situation (comes out in the wash).

    It takes the same single turn to move over a goodie hut or barb camp, pillage a trade route or tile, etc.

    If you know what you are doing, online is easier.
