They seem really fun but as I understand it people are less sold on them ever since BNW came out. How do I play them? Immortals look really good especially if you can get March on them but Longer Golden Ages are nice too but since Cultural Victory has changed too idk how much of a benefit they could be for Persia now.
I hardly know ya! The double healing rate lets them tank really well. A few archers as support and you've got a nice army. Be careful with taking cities since it can make diplomacy difficult. It's especially strong when warmongering since puppets will focus on gold buildings. A nice strategy with them is to get really happy, start a golden age, start some wars, let the puppets build satrap's courts, new golden age, rinse and repeat. Often, I will use artists to start a golden age with them for the combat and movement bonus.
Immortals are nice, but their UA lets them warmonger the whole game. You missed the combat bonus and extra movement you get from golden ages, and the extra gold and happiness from banks you likely will build anyway. Sure, the lancer is not the best unit, but Pikemen, who Immortals upgrade into, are the main unit for a long time. Yeah, I tried doing Domination but honestly I settled for half of my continent I mean it was Pangea but for some reason Harald Bluetooth and Theordora were in their own little subcontinent where I owned 3 capitals and had those two civs and Askia help me gut Portugal's capital before I won a cultural victory.
