    Warmongering is definitely the way to go when playing MP as well. It's not just the fact that the AI is unsophisticated. Actually, in some ways, warmongering against humans is actually EASIER than it is against the AI (especially at harder levels).

    I really believe that the lack of a more sophisticated AI and the software development decisions from the game maker is what causes many playstyles to gravitate to warmongering.

    In the real world, negotiation can be more profitable than war, but certainly the subroutines of AI behavior can't handle it.

    War is an ever-present theme throughout our history. It makes sense that the game reflects this.

    I ususllay dont have time to build up enough troops to make invasions every other turn. I played like that though in the medevil sen for conquests since I was broke I could only get money by taking it so I burned and pillaged my way down to jursulem(Dont know how to spell it) and took it with 3 artifacts and only had one turn before the game ended.

    Civ3 is definately heavily weighted toward warmonger playstyles.

    Interesting. I try to be a warmonger, but that never works with me...

    started a topic Warmongering is easier...

    Warmongering is easier...

    I have always played builder... wars only when I needed some resource or when they make demands.

    After reading a thread laying around here somewhere I decided to try the Scandies... (obviously, as a builder, this civ wouldn't be high on my list to play.)

    And it's SOOOOO much easier when you just go and take the Wonders you want. The Mayans built the Pyramids in a city 12 spaces from my capital! Then the Persians (who, heheeheheheh, didn't have any iron) build the Mausoleum 6 spaces from where I moved my Palace to.

    The Aztecs crossed the continent to attack me... no idea why, so I load up a bunch of galleys with berserks and now I own SoZ too! Perhaps the AI doesn't know how to defend vs amphi assaults?

    Anyway, if I continue to play kill 'em all when they look at me, I'm going to have to move up from Monarch. Sigh...
Working...
