    There are choke-points he doesn't control.
    He is attacking worthless cities; attack the principles.
    With the americans, he should attack their capitol island.
    He lacks border integrity.
    The Viking's polar cities could be taken out.
    He could spawn rush cities on his own continent since the populations will remain low and he lacks optimal placement.
    He should destroy the connecting Viking cities separating areas in their control .
    He needs to learn how to do massive amphibious assaults.
    Instead of just grinding, he needs to create multiple fronts or a diversionary attack.
    He could naval blockade ocean squares starving cities.
    He needs to find those cities making the nukes and attack them so they change their queue.
    Maybe he should change govs to communism to hinder spy attacks during an invasion.
    He needs to create more engineers to clear some jungles/fallout on some important cities.
    He needs to learn how to nuke properly.

    I'm still playing wc3 about a month shy of 10 years. Bnet of course. Some games are still really fun.

    Though I'm a cunt, so that explains it nicely.

    I thought all those things myself.

    Also, in Civ 2 there's never a "peace", the game's not designed for peace. As soon as someone has nuclear capabilities your ONLY option is to wipe them off the planet. They will nuke you, and you will end up in a 4000 year old blood feud. I guess he's a slow learner.

    Real options for Diplomacy didn't really happen in the Civ games until IV and V, and it was pretty shitty in IV anyway.

    Yes, I thought V made great improvements with things such as "Declaration of Friendship." :rolleyes:
