Here is a very helpful thread that discusses strategies to use while playing as The Ottomans.
Through a Collaborative effort between eaglesguy96 and Theguybehindu94, we’re excited to bring you our civ of the week thread. This will be the 9th of many weekly themed threads to come, each revolving around a certain civilization from within the game. The idea behind each thread is to condense information into one rich resource for all viewers, which will be achieved by posting similar material pertaining to the weekly civilization.
