GOTW- Russians 15th Nov 2010
Didnt explore all the map but
AW is far NNW
USA East of start
egypt far E and a little N\
Romans NE of USA
on island friendly hut NW
named tile SW of hut (i think)
So we are on an island, USA are close across the water but other than that it looks like it will take an age to meet anyone. I suppose someone will work out he walkout foir the americans and get them around 1800 or somthing But aztec might be almost impossible to take if they get 2AA up.
Looks like a slow week again as predicted
Well we had a run of some really fun maps. What can you expect? Just as i finished moving flat and can play GoTW again we get this crappy map. Talk about bad timing...
Again MC (Mawpawk Challenge - i don't take AI cities) but where is Mawpawk?
Yesterday i posted 500 AD Technology Victory (end of week for me on Deity), not so bad (GB,GH,2GS,2GE), with perfect GP ~300 AD should be possible.
Not boring, this week is fun and different, different strategies (also different on all levels: Chieftain walkin + horses + settlers, Warlord WA + HA, King walkout and brute force with Legions, Emperor WA + LA + HA). Dom on Deity ??? i played only non-dom-MC, Dom should be very hard, i can't win 2WA vs 2A+1L (at 2500-2400BC).

Liam is on 100AD for Dom,
I haven't tried much but that probably would take a bit of work to beat because of the difficulty in getting an early capital.
Damn you Liam , knocked all my times off, I will be trying tonight to beat them.

The GP goes with the settler too and they still had a single legion in Thebes late on lol.
500adtech!!!!! MC best iv done is 1100ad econ... hmmm im not sure i could do better, production cities are hard 2 come by in this map
Our top times (non-dom) on PS3 are about 1100ADish too.
I take it that there is you and maybe one or two others about that point on xbox and then a big gap to o777o?

yes totally correct scottiex, im second equal 14 moves behind the main man
just had a go at my first gotw tech win, i had no idea what the hell i was doing any1 got a few tips as to wht i would use oxford for? and what are the best and fastest parts to send to the space station before ya launch it?

Well not that i am an expert because i flounder a bit too (you'll notice all my non-dom with times like 100BC and 600BC are econs) but...
try advanced flight from oxford - its a preq for space flight and you can't get space flight from oxford.
and the spaceship should be 1 habitation 1 life support 4 propulsion and one fuel (or more if you have lots of spare production but i dont think this one matters much for some odd reason).
BTW congradulations Mawpawk on advancing to the semifinals in the champions league tournament.

cheers, i noticed when i was sending up parts the ETA would change, and i ended up launching at a slower time than i had seen earlier.
