Well heres the story.

It was small Islands, high, reveal, iron. I was Persian and my partner was also. We were against a Roman and a Carthaginian. Well I started I decided to put down a pit near the closest grove of trees. I was lucky that there was A stone mine near the pit. I was making about 15 vills when I sent 1 of my vills to make about 10 docks. Once 2 vills popped out I made them tower up the island. My economy was going fine and I had decided to check on my partner. He was getting attacked by the Carth enemy. I sent 10 Triremes to relive him but they were killed by fire galleys. I started pumping out Triremes but the fire galleys always seemed to take em out. Well my partner was pretty my gone when yellow (Carth) sent about 10 eles and stoners. My allie ran to my base. I tried to fight off yellow but his gained recources from my allie allowed to survive longer. I lost control of the seas when he sent the "Doomsday transport." I had focused too much on protecting my allie and had only 2 horse archers. I probaly could've taken out yellow, but my allie had stripped my island of recources. Yellow pushed me back and I tried to hold on by sending my last vill to reds island. Luckily red was a beginner and didnt take any recources. He didnt even see me. The problem was I only had 80 wood and I didnt have enough to make a storage pit or a TC. I asked my partner for some wood but he refused even though I gave him about 500 wood and 200 food. To irritate me, yellow sent an army of vills to finish my last vill off. Strangely red hadn't attacked me once. He only had 2 towers, 1 dock, bout' 5 vills, and 1 granary. Good bye, and I hope you enjoyed this story.

From the civs picked sounds like a trial version game. (only 4 civs: rome, carth, persia, and baby and no superunits). Persian probably isn't a great choice on islands because their fast-firing remes are offset by the extra attack fgalleys and lack of range for their towers and boats. However, the best way to deal with a navy of fire galleys is just to put shoreline towers everywhere and start converting them like mad (especially since persian has full temple). If they start using triremes to kill priests move your priests back and hit them with cats. At least that's the way it works in trial...

Another thing you could do is play baby, mine a bunch of stone, make tons of priests, cats and towers. Now no one will be able to invade your island (10 range baby towers make mush out of remes and can hit 11 range catremes, cats can take out ships pretty well, priests hoyohoyo fire galleys, baby can make its own fully upgraded fgalleys). The problem, of course, is that you've got to invade to win, so it will be a long, boring game of attrition...

one of my strategies when i have an allie on some isles is have my allie concentrate on a navy and i concentrate on land war or vice versa
