    There is absolutely no reason to play Korea "turtlish" unless you specifically go for a 2-3 city SV.

    India: You can expand more with india. Thats right, more. After 6 population in a city, you have a happiness profit. A city costs 6 happiness, for India, and 6 population costs 3 happiness, for any other civ, it would be vice versa. So afterwards, at pop 12, the city costs 12 happiness for India, 15 for anyone else. So, in the end, you have way more happiness, and can expand quite a bit more.

    Yeah with India you can expand more in the end but is far slower to expand. You need far more of a happiness cushion. Gaining that much land on any prince plus difficulty level is very dicey, especially since as India you want more territory more city since the whole advantage is in growing them. Doing it at a significantly slower pace due to Indian happiness makes it worse.

    CiV is very much a Tall empire game. 1upt makes the game far easier since it cripples the ai. So you have to turn up the difficulty which leads to ai city spam. . Add in City states taking up a ton of space and there is very little room. And AI reacts VERY negatively to your quantity of cities but not their quality. Liberty would be in a far better place if you could actually expand heavily.

    That turns India very much into a war civ for me. Kill your neighbor using your elephants and take his land and yours.

    you can get elephants much earlier, for a "worker tech" you have to learn anyway, they are better than cbs and you stay in the upper of the tech tree so you'll get to philosophy and education faster

    Yeah, India, Huns, Egypt have that, but other Civs don't.

    Still, best game I've had was an Inca Composite Bowmen rush that took out Catherine, Elizabeth and Atilla out of the game before I out-teched Japan, Netherlands, Ethiopia and America and won a Scientific Victory.

    Works well for Mongols and Arabia too, since CA upgrade to their UU and bring their promotions.
