Agreed. The usefulness of that initial skill almost has more to do with terrain than anything else. I recently started a game with the skill that lets you harvest fruit, only to find my initial city surrounded by 7 water tiles and a single land tile. I had to learn fishing as quickly as possible to make any improvements. I do like the randomly generated worlds, but how well the initial setup matches your tribe is a complete crapshoot.I would be much more excited about the additional tribes if the skill trees for tribes were all different. As in, with skills and trees that are unique to each tribe. Starting with one skill over another influences strategy to only a minor degree, IMO. As it is now, choosing which tribe to play is a matter of visual preference more than anything for me.
There has to be some glitch or cheat involved. The math just doesn't work out otherwise.I'm still completely baffled by these high scores. I think my personal best is around 24,000. How in the world does someone get over 130,000?
