I remember doing a big LAN game my senior year in high school. First game, a guy took the civ with the good horse archers, then slowly used that ability to win the game. The next game, I took those guys, ignored pretty much every other tech, and dumped everything into better arrows and horse technology. Destroyed all 7 opponents in about 15 minutes. The third game they made it an island map so I couldn't do that, then ganged up on me.
