One thing I noticed is that you really can't slack on building a capable army. And that's not always more units.

Definitely. And terrain - especially using choke points - matters significantly.

I just played a game where I started right on top of a couple of other civs. I managed to early rush one neighbour and thought I might as well go all in in (since I had a large army) and roll over the next one as well... but I just couldn't. I replayed the critical period a few times and I couldn't get over the hump and break through, and that was definitely a combination of a few inconvenient mountains and my opponent having an advantage in unit quality.

That said, in spite of hoping for more considered positional strategies with different unit types, it seems the best strategy in combat is to overwhelm locally and focus fire to kill units one by one. If you can get flanking or terrain advantages, great, but really it's primarily about focusing sufficient damage on units one by one to take them out

Newest patch is out. The patch notes: https://gist.github.com/MohawkGames/09b854c59e192f6f5df660d566c25e75

Biggest changes I think are doubling religious opinion from shrines, changes to some laws, and most units now consume food. They've added a 'Bisexual' character trait now too.

I thought it was a pretty good joke, actually.

Started playing on the premade Middle East and Med maps.  Pick a civ that belongs on that map and it is a great.  I am coming to the conclusion there is no cookie cutter build (even with preset maps), so much depends on the random events and adapting to the results of that.

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

Playing as Carthage on the Med premade map is easy mode - if you want to do some experimentation with build/tech optimization I recommend playing that.  North Africa is all theirs - with the exception of a barbarian village or two.  Then they can expand to the South of Europe, or the islands in the Med.  Pretty easy to get the double score victory condition if you want a quicker game, because of the ease of expanding from that starting position.  If not, I recommend disabling that win condition.

I thought I read somewhere that you can turn a city-site into the part of another city's area somehow... but I can't figure out how. Is that because you can't actually do that? Or do any of you know how to do that?
