A game where I had everything going for me. Found the pop relic, upped faster, succesfully raided in early Heroic and even got him to more or less panic-waste his A/E while I was expanding my territory.
But as I was failing to claim my fourth TC, which probably would have been a game-ender if I had done so, the battle front switched sides, and so did the game.
He goes Thoth a little ahead of me, bombs my un-monumented (ugh) west side, disturbs my trade and starts to push me back while digging Titan.
From here on he had the upper hand and never really let it go. Our titans clashed, but his sidebuilding was better than mine, he had more armory and more map.
One of the most entertaining games I've played to this date. I'm just dissapointed that I didn't manage to come out as a winner, given the start I got.
