Survival mode
Which do you think is the best civilization for Survival mode (taking into account the emissary gain rate)?

I'm feeling that Nomad is very strong. Cheap cities are wonderful; together with one emissary every map to take the best starting position or expel the most threatening opponent, most maps can be won easily. Desert maps are tough for them because of expensive Citadels, but that's what the extra emissaries are for. Their weaknesses of being unable to farm and having no Ziggarat/Palace are easily covered by their best strength, namely the cheap cities.

Re: Survival mode
Personally, I've had the most success with Egypt and the Nomads. By success, I mean streaks of 20+ wins. What is your record so far?

Re: Survival mode
I'm playing many civilizations concurrently. Gutians now at 22 but has only 2 emissaries left. Nomad at 18 but has 6 emissaries.

Re: Survival mode
That's really good for Gutians. I've had a lot of trouble with them, just because they don't match up well against a lot of factions.

Re: Survival mode
The Gutians are probably the weakest civilization, but one emissary per map is pretty powerful. That means that you can routinely use one per map, and the 5 you start with are for uses beyond the first one. With some luck, they can last a while.

My Nomad lost at the 21st battle because I was dumb. But I have just won my 20th with the Assyrians. Almost lost against the double Akadians at the 18th, but hanged on barely with a tie.
