  • Emperor/complete military conquest

    at 90% science I begin with Pottery->Warrior Code->Bronze Working->Iron Working and then I set my science to 0% and build swordsman while I'm archer rushing one or two Civs (which works to a tee). On the other hand I continue to play off the battered civs for techs and it works until they acquire riflemen. At this point I cannot create enough knights to cotend with the likes of them... I've done this about 4-5 times and everytime no matter what small adjustments I make, I fall short. I know there are other solutions but I still find that there is a way to work this, and if anyone has any helpful suggestions it would be appreciated.

    why do you have knights?

    You should be using cavalry (which you get with Military tradition. Sorry if that is pattronizing).
    I rarely attack if the other civ has riflemen. I wait until tanks, via the ToE->Hoover beeline.

    You just wasted six ... no, seven ... seconds of your life reading this sentence.
