Unhappynes in despotism? Lets build enough warriors. So the strategy
doesn't change, only first you have to build some warriors. The Republic
is nearly impossible then, but why should i build a temple when 2
warriors are cheaper, mobile and don't cost money.

So techtree would be map making -> Monarchy -> Steam (Magnetism) ...

Think a ICS Stragie will win most of the games against a
city-improbement-building one.
