That was a crazy game. I hate vs-ing Norse with my Ra especially Thor. At first everything seemed normal 4:xx up with Freya from him and I was aiming for my FH.
I added some axes as I saw that he had few hersirs and to defend myself, but I expected much more pressue and so he gave me more time to finally get to heroic.
The problem was that he had the whole map, as Ra is really a defensive civ and norse aggressive. He had 4:1 tc!
But for some reason he went Skadi, I was really sourrounded by him and had not that much space left. But I managed it (don't ask me how) to come back hitting earlier mythic and destroying the TC so I had more pop and the gold in the middle, which helped a lot.
Then he hit mythic ... through Tyr ...
In the end I destroyed his other TC and he gave up.
Seriously I had so much luck, if he had gone Bragi he simply had crushed me and if that hadn't worked (what I doubt), then he still could have gone Baldr... Think that were two main points... And his eco management seemed not that good when I watched the map after I won.
I was SO suprised when I won this as I thought of giving up after he destroyed my mig and was TC advantage... Thank god I continued.
