Civilization V- A Great Comeback

Spread the Word!

Since we’re still three days away from Total War Rome 2 I decided to play some Civilization V multiplayer. I decided to choose Pachacuti for the first time. At the beginning of the game it’s always costly to go to war so I decided to take the peaceful route and not attack anyone. As far as technology goes I was the most advanced civilization. ¬†Isabella { the ruler of the Spanish Civilization} has already been at war with me twice.

Both times she managed to cripple my kingdom but not once have I ever lost a city. I’ll be honest the first time we went to war if it wasn’t for the Aztecs assisting me I would’ve been taken out the game by turn 100. Isabella decides to go to war with me for the third time. As her first wave of troops gather around my little city {it’s a name I really can’t pronounce so i’m not even going to try and spell it} for the first assault I found myself outnumbered and staring defeat in the face.

My entire army from all my cities only made up about 9 units. We were going up against an army of 16 units. I successfully managed to take her numbers down to about 9 units to even the score and just when I think i’m doing good my scouts discover another 20 units heading to the small city. At this point if I try and purchase another unit i’ll be broke, and my people will be unhappy so i’m screwed.

I keep producing Riflemen to replace my fallen units but they’re dying faster and i’m down to about 6 units at this point against 20. My ally {The Aztecs} promised me support and started a war with Isabella in the north but it wasn’t enough to deter her from trying to wipe my Civilization out. Just when I think all hope is lost and i’m about to accept my defeat The Aztecs show up on my borders with reinforcements. I’ve never been so happy to see another face.

With renewed confidence I started make as many troops as I could to help turn the tide of battle. With our combined forces we were able to eliminate her entire northern army and my friends gifted me some much needed cannons, and Gatling Guns to defeat her southern army. While Isabella does have a more powerful military than I do as of right now I proved how tough I was by holding off that long for reinforcements to arrive and pretty much save the day. Now we’ve begun our counter attack and I have close to twenty units attacking her smaller cities on the river. It’s moments like this that reminds me why I love this game so much. I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you did i’ll have more for you real soon.

    That sounds like one hell of a game! Not many people could survive an onslaught like that with just 6 units. Great job man!

      Thanks dude! I thought I was screwed for sure when I saw that army approaching my civilization. I held out just long enough for reinforcements to come and save my ass.
