I had planned to do a small update after my war with cleo, but this game is killing me. I had gotten several crashes today and the last one really hurts. I was going around the horn making trades and had done all but 4 and boom. I mean I am not anxious to load this back up (almost a minute for that alone). The game was starting to be fun as I had some action, but the trades are unreal. Often I just sit there after saying I accept and it looks like it is stuck. I can move my cursor and after maybe 20-30 seconds it goes to the next screen? I had many of these is this session, so I almost saved it in case, but I was worried that I would come back and not know whom I had not traded with. Then the game crashed
The lag for turns is almost 3 mins all the time now. Wars are starting and Oceans tiles are open to many.
It is 1580AD and I recently built my only wonder (Observatory). I had Adams underway and no one has start it. It is a long build for me, so it is not a given.
I elected to trade Econ to get Nav and what ever else I could and hope for the best.
I had gotten Nav and was able to trade Gems and was getting all kinds of lux and cash. I was finally going to be able to make some moves. I had a few caravels off to attack Cleo, but was waiting on MPP/RoP for Arabia.
I got an elite with some of the units Cleo landed on the NewCastle island. A bunch of places were about to finish their banks.
I was 9th out of the 23. All civs known. I was working towards Newtons. I had some hopes of getting a leader out of my war.
I am well under way with the tundra island and probably the only player still growing into empty lands.
Lots of weak civs near by, once I go to full out troop building. Magnetism not that far off and then UU for a nice big fat GA.
I need a break before I start this crying again.
Now all I have to do is remember what trades I made to whom.
