Re: Strategic shrine placement

It depends though. If it turned out to be a victory, then it's a good move, especially in a scenario that your enemy forward block you and rush you. But if your enemy placed his military buildings at his base and developed his own eco without any thoughts of pressuring you, then your strategic shrin .....

Re: the key thought

Well basically lots of match ups to practice general skills, map readings to help you know your environments better, study differences between different civs to know your opponents better. But in general, I think situational awareness will be the most important thing, this is what other things are d .....

Re: For Russians, how to predominate the game with Ottomans?

I'm now trying to summarize gentlemen's opinions. Most of you think it is really tough for Russia to make it in terms of a match-up with Ottomans(especially when Ottos are doing FF), and Russians should avoid impulsive rushing when determining the opponent is doing FF, otherwise Russians will be ver .....
