Hello all, its been some time now since CiV (Civilization 5) got released with shit loads of bugs and unbalancings. March first they patched it and since then i enjoyed three games so far. Its been a quite nice balance patch in terms of Hammers/Gold and Research (beakers). The AI below Emperor didnt suprise me so far, was easy to hold off and so im stepping up now. I got asked by a few guys if i could write a Storyline and so here we go! The game will be random leader, pangaea on the 6th difficulty of 8 in total. these will be the settings, i know i will hate them, usually i play with Sea Level on High to get more Rivers but this turned out to be way too easy so im going back to standart. Random turned out to be Alexander. Quite nice to not play against him, he is always warmongering the whole world, how evil ! I do like his special the Hellenic League. Basically when ever a City-State gives a Quest u can get double the amount of Influence. Also u do lose half of the points to them u normaly do, since i love to have 1-2 maritim + 1 military and all available cultural city states this is amazing The units Alexander gets are quite strong and im less dependend on Iron for the start. and here is one of the worst start locs ive ever seen so far, well why ? NO RIVER on the second sight its not as bad as i thought, i hope i can build a watermill because of the lake, i doubed it tough. 2x Silk is nice for selling (200-300gold every 30turns from the AI) and marble to increase Wonderbuild speeed. all right gonna settle here and investigate the land a bit further.
