Thank you for the effort put into this write-up. If nothing more shows how to get a highly promoted army and how good it becomes. I have only one problem with all this, the worker repairing and pillaging trick. I wrote a thread about this last autumn when it was introduced, they even covered it in polycast. The thing is that it gives a big advantage for the attacker, because you can't pillage your own improvements when defending, and repairing them. The only downside is that it's really strong only if you have the pyramids, otherwise you spend 2 turns to repair. So i pretty much consider it an exploit of some sort. Thanks again, cheers!
