Sorry I REALLY have to disagree with you on that. Samurai, Workshop, Great Wall, and Pyramid are nothing compared to EITC. By the time I get to that point GW and Pyramid are obsolete. Samurai won't have much affect against rifleman if you were to go that route. As for workshop it can be good, but not until later in the game. By the time your knights became tanks I would have MI armies with BS fleets with EITC. I have done this several times and many people have tried using sam castle on me but realized they were to late. The only exception being when Redaf used GB on sam and GS on steam and had a fleet same turn. I had EITC. If it would've come one turn later he more than likely would've lost. His sam castle would've become obsolete and I would've gotten way ahead of him in tech. Would've, could've, should've I know... All my GP were humanitarians to be fair.
