Well, personally it has taken me 2 weeks of playing to even become adept at understanding this game at easy, let alone some of the empires i have seen here!! Anyway I have finally got the noob hang of it i think......and im addicted (Civ5 what now?). I hope to post my united great britain empire soon (hey its a start!!!!) as i just conqured ireland in 2 years without getting dogpilled, or shed loads of infamy - yey for understanding missions, checking for alliences, how to stack troops properly and CBs!!!!!. Great game.
