Welcome to Multi Player Civ5!
« on: November 08, 2011, 07:03:55 AM »
Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read this article and play some civ5 with us.

At first you might feel that CiV MP is a beast you are unprepared for. Your right. Playing some players in MP (multiplayer) is like playing Deity AI on steroids. But dont be scared so easily :) Its not that difficult to become plenty decent in MP.

Imagine playing the Deity AI on a level playing field, yet the AI had a brain. Thats more like MP. Anyway, enough chit chat. Lets get down to some tricks of the trade.

First off a glossary of MP game types.
CTON=A always war style of game, that is based on making it as balanced as possible for all players. No Private chat is allowed, nor chat that could give anyone in the game a advantage because of the knowledge gained. No trading is allowed, nor peace with AI.

FFA Free for all game, Diplo is a must ;)

2v2/3v3 Teamer game, fight to death or victory.

Duel 2 players fight against each other.
___________________________________________________________

Tips and tricks.

Tech to ironworking fast and have a few warriors built, so you can upgrade them with gold to swordsmen asap in the game. This is a good way to rush and or defend a rush.

Build more than 2 cities. And get as much production as possible as quick as possible.

Dont be discouraged when you lose your first few games, it happened to me.

Mainly this post is for someone very new to MP. But it will help tremendously in your first few games.

More strategy in depth will be posted soon.
