City placement, water, and the changes coming with G&K
When I play Civ, I have a rule. Always always always place a city on water. That could be a lake, river, or the sea, but it must be. The reasons I feel are obvious. You can build gardens, build naval units, but also use great rivers for defense. Plus water and rivers give gold, making it more economically feasible.
But if any of you watched the PAX demo, I realized that things may change, for better or worse. Without much trouble the Huns took over the defenseless Ethiopian city. So I asked, if naval invasions are more likely now, how will this affect my water based strategy? Will I turtle into the continent? Or maybe increase my navy or coastal defenses?
I am curious to hear your ideas on water, cities, and the changes of Gods and Kings
