First time using Persians. Random map(archipelago). Random civs. Didn't fall too far behind early as has been my tendency lately. Actually led in score almost from start to finish. Enemiez invaded me a couple times but I managed to fight 'em off and turned the pressure to them. As soon as my navy reached reached their shores the outcome begins to become clear. I am an intermediate hoping to improve my game and I'd appreciate any comments or advice.
