GOTW Germans 26.02.2012
This week we are the Germans.
Others civs are:
-Arabs (close EES)
-Japanese (very far SW - island)
-KT (5S 8W from start)
-Atlantis (somewhere - W from start).
Again easy map with walk in, very good production place, lack of Great Persons is bad (almost all wonders are needed for cult.v).
I did 200 AD Tech.V. (Deity), 1st run (after taking 3 capitals), average GP (GS for Ind, GA for 15g, GE for 200g, GB from Japan for EIC, GS for Space Flight). With better GP (GS not GA) 100 AD should be possible.
As for dom: with my opening (for non-dom) 1500 BC should be possible (only Nav from hut is needed).
150 AD Cultural Victory
Where are everyone? Today started "GOTW Germans 01.03.2012" for PS3 players. I hope at Sunday X360 & PS3 players will play together (GOTW Russians).
Weekly spoiler for Deity (non-dom and dom):
3500 BC Tripoli + Religion (walk in)
note: rush elite warriors, they will be upgraded to legions (when you buy IW)
2400 BC Delhi (forced walk out)
2400 BC Athens + Democracy
2300 BC CoL from hut (it's worth 3 turns, only because i'm ready to expanding, usually 1 turn)
1200 BC Democracy, Industrial Era, ~40 cities
900 BC GS for Ind., later GB for Internet (without 2nd GP from Japan)
150 AD Cultural V. (with 2nd GS - early - 100 AD is possible)
for dom (perfect for me):
2100 BC Navigation from hut
1900 BC Kyoto (2 LA + GG + fund + naval support, 31.x vs 27, 26.x vs 7, 26.x vs 0).
Finally able to put in a session.... (been out of town working since monday morning, got back last night)

I have to start putting more effort into trying to find CoL not through teching... i usually just go straight to teching and negletcting other possibilities... makes a difference, beakers=hammers or gold, better kick start to expanding.... off we go to Russia.Streak of 3 straight walkins right now.....
.... and just as a say this, we get a 1 barb island start lol....

Yep, I'm Here! PS3 back from time warp...!
Didn't read spoilers, so I can play my own strats. I'll check out your ultimate strat later!
I'm seriously considering a mentor for MP PS3... However time zones might make it difficult for you and I. And I understand Typing with PS3 sucks also...
Just come play in the chat room. We'll play together and we could comment on each other play afterwhile. I log as randomgab usually.

It may take some time... But I'll look for you in the next week or so...
