    GA can also be triggered peacefully now by building GW with the same CSA as your civilization, but since only one Civ can build each GW, a peacefull GA can also be prevented. The peaceful GA trigger could also allow Civ's with modern UU, to have an early GA, and if a GA can be declined, Civ's with early CSU can have their GA late, if they can complete the GW with the right CSA.
    CR, new in Civ III, will make tactics like ICS a lot more difficult, also BAB is no longer true. GW and SW both contribute to CR making them even more important in the game. CR could make OCC a bit easier, but i have no experience with OCC.

    would a Civ III newbie understand this post, i don't think so, i know i wouldn't. i never heard of any of these mentioned untill visited this forum, and it took me while before i knew them.
    So i thought maybe a list with all the abbreviations used here could make things easier.

    <Kassiopeia> you don't keep the virgins in your lair at a sodomising distance from your beasts or male prisoners. If you devirginised them yourself, though, that's another story. If they devirginised each other, then, I hope you had that webcam running.

                        Of course, the now classic:

                        SP = Single Player
                        MP = MultiPlayer

                        Oh and:

                        CTP = Call To Power

                          WTF = What the F**K?

                          KMFDM = Kill mother-effing Depeche Mode

                          SMIG = Sid Meier is god
