    Hello guzy

    For the people that are playing civ 5. It's good to know that there is so much more to the game then I suspect most of us know. I spent a couple of hours today reading up and theory-crafting a bit. I found some VERY important information I feel like you really need to read to basically know wtf you are doing!

    This opened my eyes and made me realize I knew 10% of the game. I had no idea about working tiles and that improving ALL tiles is a complete god damn waste. I had no idea how important citizens are and i had no idea about the ZOC
    read up and get educated bitches:

    basically, you don't get resources unless they are worked by your citizens, ever. You can never work tiles further then 3 hexes away from your city. That means anything more then 3 hexes away from your city (hammers, gold, apples) will NEVER benefit your empire and will also never be workable. Another good question and answer about this below:

    Notice that this does not apply to luxury or strategic resources, these always give the benefit as long as they are within borders. But the tile bonus is, again, NEVER given unless worked and can never be worked if its further then 3 hexes away from your city.

    This means improving Tile bonus with no strategic or luxury benefit further then 3 hexes from your town = complete waste of time and cost. Optimal expanding conditions is your capital in the middle surrounded by smaller city's 7 hexes away from your capital in either direction (north, west, south, east). This is of course not set in stone depending on the resources actually available in that specific area, but in a perfect world this is optimal.

    this brought war to a whole new lvl for me. Freaking pvp right here. Read the thread it is all explained better then i have the time to do it here:

    Also read this basic guide, its short and very good:

    Reading this, I realise how much has been changed.

    I thought it was Civ 5 plus a couple of new factions, but like wtf they have changed a lot of base mechanics.

    Been playing civ5 for the last year or so. The latest expansion mainly changed the AI of opponents. Their strategy of preferred win is now very clear from the start. Damn you Sweden for diplomatic victory!

    Also, the things Doodle mentioned are in civ5 the base game, not changes in BNW. In fact, AMA about civ5 considering I've got 400+ hours in by now.
