Don't get surrounded by other Civs.

I made a guide for newer players, it might help out a bit. Just remember to get your science up, that tends to make everything go your way.

If you need any specific help, post more on specifics.

Take a few games to learn how to put together a SOLID,NASTY City, hilltop riverside tiles with adjacent desert and mountain tiles are serious "I'd KILL for 1 of those tiles" . Dream on . Try going down to #3 warlord; see what works, get it DOWN, win a few , then try Prince again . Different maps, civ's, find what works for you . It will take some time, but, you WILL learn how to SPANK this puppy . Save up some cash for Gods and Kings, then Brave New World; in that order, this will help your style of play as you pick up new tricks to use .

I'm not sure I like winning so much with that game. My greatest memories are all when I got my♥♥♥♥♥♥wiped out in less than a minute.

Try to start on Settler or Chieftain, I have 50 hours logged and I can't play anything higher (lol). Also, play the tutorial if you haven't yet. And don't trust Ghandi. Like ever.

thanks for the help i think i have figured out what civ im good with and that is america but i would like to get good with the iroquois.

Cockroach class (Ghandi,Alex) are pains to begin with, so put them out of your misery as soon as possible. Extinct ememies do not haunt you . Thier heads are on your wall .

Extinct enemies WILL haunt you, because the other AI's will never forgive you for eliminating a civ completely, thus you can forget about having good relations with them ever again. Always make sure your enemy has at least on (crappy) city left.

Trust me, it's not worth it (except if it's Alexander (just kidding)). The exception to this is if you are close to winning the game.

Never* play Settler level. The AI gets too many restrictions and wyou will learn too many bad habits.

*Well, not never. But only play Settler AFTER you've learned to play the game, and only because you want to see how crippled the AI will play. Then never again.

join an online game and learn tactics from that

Twelvefield makes a good point. Start on LV2 or 3 and make sure you're trying to progress up all the time. I started on 3 having played Civ Rev and i've gone up to 4 over a few games. You will get much better at the game if you lose a few units and divise better strategies.

Really good advive but also remember to use advanced settings. Choose a map type that suits your Civ, lower or increase resources and city states plus choose the Civ's you play against. Then, once you have mastered a few games doing this, start to play with random settings to challenge yourself. Most of all have fun.

also choose your civ carefully like dont choose Korea and then use liberty or choose Russia and choose tradition you must learn tactics like which social policy what buliding to start off with

Also can someone start making online games

Just play some games. Experience will help more than anything; learn from your mistakes, and from what works. Generally larger population cities are better. More food means more citizens, which work more tiles, which provides more of everything else. Like Assassin said, post more specific questions if you need more help. Once you start to get things down, try watching YouTube vids of people playing on Deity difficulty. They know how to maximize what the game gives them, and you will learn some valuable tricks from them. Also experiment with different strategies and social policy trees.
