    Even in Bureau we are outproduced 5:1 by AC. Very shortly there are going to come at us with a stack of atleast 30 units IMO. We're pretty screwed IMO.

      That's because:
      1. Bureac adds very little to our production (EotS is a commerce city)
      2. Most of our hammers are probably coming from the whip, and that is not shown in demographics screen.
      3. They probably have forges everywhere.

      I'm most worried about when they turn up with Pikes. Then there is no way we can reliably counter attack.

      Btw, I think that Wines would be better building a barracks than a library. We barracks in all cities will be helpful now that we are no longer in Vassalage. I imagine we will be training/whiping units in Wines for some time: a barracks will pay off.

        Going back to Vassalage in 5 turns. Just spending the next 5 turns get WE builds up to 29 hammers. And I agree on that, we aren't screwed right now; but we are screwed because even if we can match them hammer for hammer by whipping, they are now able to grow and research and wipe us out 50 turns later. I'm considering slaving out 3-4 settlers and just hoping they don't come in with the uber stack; at the same time see if there is anything they would like to stop the war for. Though I expect they want us out of the game before the other continent can get to galleons. and to have settled the entire continent by 60 turns from now.

          I agree that if we cannot get some more towns down we could not keep up, even if we could right now match them. May as well give it a shot.

          If you have any shot at a truce, if will have to be soon. Once they see you have make some more towns, they will know that you were not making troops and we have fallen further behind.
