My god. I was just playing a game. Tiny, 3 rivals, and 2 islands. Mid-ancient age. I deceided to go for a quick attack and take some workers fast and take countrol of my island. I pretty easyly take most of his cities withous too much troble. Amazingly easy. I got GREAT position. But he had only 1 city left. 1 pop in it. Should be easy. I have plenty of archers and he has spearmen and archers. I march my men to his city in the desert. I make sure not to attack as to give him the river advantage. It took me allthought the rest of the ancient age and the beggining of the middle ages. Why was it SOOOOO tough. I lost TONS of archers to a few stupid spearmen. Why. Is there something I might of done wrong. Dose this happen to you. It was bad this time.
