I am currently learning to play Civilization 5 and decided to experiment with the cultural victory strategy. I am going to play game after game with the same strategy, making minor adjustments to see what works and what does not.
While it is nice to see which approaches work better than others, I could use some kind of benchmark from experienced players to compare my results to. I am looking for things like
- You should be able to win the game before the year X
- You should have at least a growth of X cultural points each turn in the year Y
- You should have built at least X cultural landmarks during the game
- You should get at least wonder X, Y and Z
- You should ...
Those are just examples, maybe there are much more important KPIs in this strategy I am not even aware of. What values can I measure my attempts against?
UPDATE: To avoid confusion what I am exactly looking for, I add a clarification from the comment section below.
I am looking for KPIs like "A experienced player can win a cultural victory before 1850 AD". If I cannot do it before 2000 AD, I know that there is a large gap I need to close. Or a KPI like "A experienced player can gain 200 culture points each round around 350 AD" tells me, that I am messing things up in the early game, if I can only gain 100 around 350 AD. I am not looking for instructions about what to do but how I can measure if what I am doing works.
