  • Man, i really suck...

    Played my first Civ4 game, was defeated in 1 hr and 30 mins... sad...
    but what made it worst is calling my leadership skills on par with Dan... ouch! ;)

            Yeh I've been playing just a few hours on the 2nd from easiest setting and I'm really struggling. I seem to have to give alot of tech away to foreign powers or I end up fighting a 4 front war.

            Also, not sure what I'm doing wrong, but my musketman fortified in a city with walls just got killed by some war elephants.... seems like taking the technology lead doesn't provide actual victory anymore.

              The mechanics seem a bit screwy, elephants can only really be effectively countered with pikeman or calvary. The funny thing is the barbarians will destroy anything you throw at them in a city.

                    Archers are the new spearmen for city defense (+25% natural city def bonus), but spearmen are still preferred for defense against mounted. Barbarians are now ridiculously tough because the AI dedicates an entire barbarian city production to archers and just stacks them all behind city walls. You need elephants, tanks, or gunships to bust them out.

                    Anything higher than cheiftain really requires you to acquiece to opponents' demands, unless you are prepared to play as a fortress. And in the early game, any open warfare can really hamstring you. I've had a few false starts where a random invasion killed me early on.

                      I have the best luck ignoring defense and hitting an opponent hard early and taking them out, this gives me room to expand and a good city at the start.

                              Actually, if you just hit the barbarian cities with 3-4 swordsmen before they get a large city it will die quickly. Try to find a nice forested hill (or at least a forest) next to their city to siege from, and make SURE you get 1 person with medic upgrade. They will probably attack you (and die cuz of your +75% terrain bonus) and just leave a couple defenders remaining. Barbarians.

                              If it grows to have a +X% defense, just bring a catapult. No biggie. War elephants etc are not necessary.

                              Just beat Prince. Considering moving up, but it was a close game, so I think it'll hold off :D.
