I know that when I research writing in the iron age that I can then see my ally's stuff, but - does my researching it mean that he can see my stuff too or does he have to research writing to get that?

Your allie has to research it himself.

Perhaps you mis-spoke, Axe, but Writing (which you should acquire at the earliest feasible opportunity), is available in Bronze.

I dont research it until im ironing or one of the last useful techs in the gov.center. But thats because I can count on my allies most games to take care of themselves, and/or Im too busy killing the enemy that I dont care or dont have the resources to get it.

I, too, do not research Writing immediately upon entering Bronze. As I said before, it's best to get it at the earliest feasible opportunity, but in early Bronze, Wheel, wood chopping upgrades, whatever armor is needed for your troop selection, and any market upgrades you didn't acquire in Tool will almost all take precedence over Writing.

Add to that the resources spent on early Bronze troops, and yes, typically I will not begin to research Writing until my Bronze attacks are well under way.

I personally research writing ONCE I hav the res for it. I often ask my allies for 100 food and gold to get it

I'm a big advocate of researching writing. When I get it though will depend on what my current situation is. If I know my allies are being hit while I am not, I'll try to get it 2-3 min into Bronze. If I am being attacked though it usually gets put off.

Personally, i wish the damn tech were available in Tool. Or at least, it would be nice if i didn't require gold. It makes teamwork so much nicer to have it.

I actually forget half the time. Usually when I'm using a non-gold-dependant civ like phoen, I do it pretty early - I put a couple of men on gold in tool, and have enough gold by bronze to research writing and get a couple of cats.
On the other hand, if I'm playing my old friends mace, I forget, or just can't be bothered. Dunno why.

I love writing, sometimes I even research it before anything else in Govt. That's free recon there. Information is our greatest weapon.

Writing is the best thing to get when in bronze. I always get them especially when I am Palmy and feeding my ally. I just can't wait to see what my contributions to them has done.
