GOTW Chinese 11.03.2012
This week we are the Chinese.
Others civs are:
-Zulu (close NE)
-Indians (far N - island)
-SoC (8N 4E from Berlin)
-AW (2S 7E from Delhi)
-Atlantis (1S 8E from start).
Average map, not hard, not easy. No walk in (but i can take Zimbabwe early at 3000 BC). After: Arabs are annoying (AA very early 3000 or 2900 BC - before legions), Germans are OK but too far, so classic walk outs. With AW Republic at 2400 BC. Only 3 mountains, so no chance for BC non-dom (except tech but it's useless due to no proofs).
Today i posted on Deity:
-50 AD Technology V (did 0) - 1st run (after taking capitals), i made few mistakes (some cities bad placed) - i can expand 1 turn faster, really good GPs (4xGS,2xGA,1GE) so i don't expect to be faster.
As for Dom 1800 BC should be possible and boring (3x walk out), i'm not going to change my opening designed for non-dom so probably i will do nothing.
probably you will do a lot ,lol....

For me: settle 3500 (70g), zimbabwe+bronze 3000 (4 legions + warrior+ minor seed tweak), AW 2400, republic 2300, tripoli+religion @ berlin+HBR 2000 both easy walkouts.... my production city produced ~50h for 6 turns and ~75h for 3 turn= total 9 turns from railroad.... perhaps railroad too late and communism for sure too late, cultural milestone ready for ~150AD... also GP's crappy, had to tech all (-indst)........ I also got 1500BC dom with this opening + 5 turns for India w/4 fundy elite LA+galley, not perfect due to earlier walkout but it was fun going to battle, for 1 turn lol
gonna try and upgrade my non dom later this week, i will for sure with a little better GP luck.
good to know BC is possible (dont like tech that much, too dependent on GS's and i'm not very good at manipulating gp's)

Reason: minor detail
100 BC Cultural Victory
Nothing for domination victory (only i did for fun 2200 BC on Warlord - 1st run ~20 minutes).

But still for 200 BC i will have no gold (Internet too late due to no gold for Oxford), for 200 BC 2GB are needed very early (even 1 GB = mission almost impossible). 100 BC is possible without GB (earlier i did 0 AD because of stupid glitch, 1 GP instead of 2 GP from 500g + Inv).
I tried to do for fun 1900 BC on Deity, finally i did 1900 BC with no fun (1 hour wasted for march upgrade).
