Well to a certain degree i think it is.If the settings are cont,if by chance you have a good spot and a "sweet spot",and if the map is revealed(it helps but not really needed).If a Palmyra player can find two fishs,and puts 4 vills on them,they can get a constant vill flow.With this flow they can soon put a couple of vills on wood,and then they can build a granary.Of course a vill will be exploring and by then maybe your find more shore fish.

well it all depends...
a firend of minez made a 14 min bronze with 16 Palmyra villagers.
but that was before ror came out
( he was a beta tester)
palmyra can be a great civ if u know how to use it right
ie. u can play a great game with greek if u know what ur doing ( even persia for that matter)
so.....
yea it iz a good civ if u know how to play it correctly
but i wouldn't recomend it on hillcounty maps

No matter what the settings palmy is never even close to top tier, however on a good map, palmy is very competitive, on the order of a phoenician on a non-water map i'd say... but palmy is much more map dependent.. you get a *****map and you'll see 19 minute bronzes even from the best....

Well if you discard the exploring vill and just build a scout after you pushed the bronze upgrade you will eanr on that.

From Grand Pooba's Palmyran Strategies: "...Palmyra will never be competitive 1v1..."

    Me and Sarmis_Dionysos have read Pooba's strat on Palmyra, and have been playtesting it for a few days now. True enough, in a 3v3 game on a water map, Palmyra is a very competitive civ, but only if there's well coordinated team-play. I played a game in which I tributed 400 food to each of my allies in Tool, and still Bronzed in 18 minutes. Well, the two of us are still testing it, and even though we lost some games against very good players, we still think there's potential.

In 1v1 game they are vulnerable to early rush. Even later into the game, they have headache replacing lost villagers.

In team game (especially in gigantic water map where there is a lot of food), they are as competitive as others.

They are my least favorite civ on hell country. I would rather have greek or carth than palmy on hell country. Especially in 1v1 hell country.

"Map dependent." Yes, that describes Palmy to a "T." While only a fool or a supremely cocky individual would deliberately take them in a 1v1, they CAN be of service to a 3-man team (I wouldn't even dare in a 2v2), IF, and only if, there are abundant resources for them, including a readily-available food source. Palmy does not have the luxury do scout for food too long, although you do have a tiny window of opportunity, since there's going to be a lag in early vill production no matter how well you start.

Being in the pocket is almost a must - which, of course, you have no control over. A palmy on the outside, especially one faced with a superior opponent or fast civ, needs early support from the pocket player, and must also commit his precious villies on walling.

Still, with the right conditions, and ample early protection, the Palmy strength will certainly be felt - in giving plenty of food from those amazing fish boats, and all that wood, etc.... Of course, this is not a military marvel, as none of their units (save camels) has any particular benefit. Still, they can lend them, and later, scythes, to any battlefront, and still have a robust economy.

Having said that, when the random gods curse me with Palmy, I curse back. Loud and long.

Yes Singh23 i did not even 14, but 13:12 min bronze with 18 vils with Palmy, and this is my best time so far with them, but i had a greate shore fish spot and this gave me speed.
