This is made by me and my friend back in the day of early en servers.

Good concise guide. Excellent points about including some cats. Love your ranged nuke, that's almost exactly how I build my ranged nukes.

What are your thoughts on Breakthrough attack, i.e., when is the best time/situation to use breakthrough? When one can clear out a city's harbor with LS nukes first, it is not necessary, obviously. But, once a world gets past the early game, bireme walls can get seriously massive, especially when the enemy knows you're coming after a particular city.

I'd be interested in people's thoughts on this, as I am a little fuzzy regarding the math/efficiency of using breakthrough.

EDIT: just realized OP was from last july, so might not get the OP's input. still, interested on what others have to say.

You have to spy on the city. I refer you to this page of the wiki, which explains the process of spying :)
