Which wonders do you build and are good?
It seems in every game I play (mostly 3v3 or 2v2) there are often at least 2-3 wonders built during the game. So which wonder do you build? Which wonders are good comparatively?
I know Colossus is like what everyone builds and Hanging Gardens is pretty good as well.
all the classical ones are very good and offer a very fast ROI. colossus is best if the game goes long, hanging gardens is the best short term boost, pyramids can be very good on water maps (can get 7 more scholars in the extra city)
in V versailles is very good
in VI taj mahal is overpowered
of course if you get supercollider or space program and you have a reasonable amount of resources and troops you will win if you know what you're doing
what about angkor what? It reduces your troop building costs greatly thus enabling you to save on resource collecting.
Angkor wat is good on naval maps...25% ground troops is nice but not really as good as the Versailles healing and 1/2 off lib techs bonus.
Also it's harder to come up with 500 timber and wealth for Angkor Wat vs. 500 food and metal for Versailles.
25% off troops is massive, when a rare resource like salt is hotly contested by players. Also I find wealth is quite easy to accumulate late game as you have trade routes etc. and selling off your excess resouces to earn wealth.
play more compeitive people P
are you saying in competitive games ppl always build versailles and taj mahal and colossus? lol
then what ur point
People build wonders when they can and if the situation warrants it.
I would build colossus on a less aggressive map if I'd rebuffed an early attack & if I wasn't setup for a good counter attack that would kill an opponent. Old world as pocket comes to mind. I used to build colossus a lot as it often resulted in me winning if we went to IV or beyond.
I don't usually build versailles but probably would if I felt like I had an edge in V but didn't feel like I'd be able to put the game away by the end of VI.
I'd build Taj in VI if there was any way I could (and if I didn't have th game won already)... It's a game winner b/c of the massive wealth. I used to love getting Taj in V as Eggy... tha's uber.
i usually run out with hanging gardens and colosus, but if i cant i go straight to tca... abd attack quickly! D and GG
